  1. If your further investigation points to the oil pan as a leak source, the below Technical Service Bulletin relating to that condition on 2.7L/3.0L EcoBoost engines may be helpful... TSB 19-2332 - 2.7L & 3.0L EcoBoost - Oil Pan Leaking - Issued 11-04-2019.pdf Good luck!
  2. Beginning with the engine oil pressure sensor, below are PDF download links to relevant sections of the 2016 MKX Workshop Manual... Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Sensor - Location Illustration - 2016 MKX Workshop Manual .pdf Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Sensor - Removal and Installation - 2016 MKX Workshop Manual.pdf Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Sensor - Connector C1642 Wiring Details - 2016 MKX Workshop Manual .pdf Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Sensor - Wiring Diagram - 2016 MKX Workshop Manual .pdf Your photos show relatively widespread surfaces that have been dampened & soiled while driving at speed. The Workshop Manual provides the following methods that a dealership technician would use to evaluate potential points of leakage... Engine Oil Leaks NOTE: If an overnight drive is done, the fan air or road air blast can cause erroneous readings. NOTE: When diagnosing engine oil leaks, the source and location of the leak must be positively identified prior to repair. Prior to carrying out this procedure, clean the cylinder block, cylinder heads, valve covers, oil pan and flywheel/flexplate with a suitable solvent to remove all traces of oil. Engine Oil Leaks - Fluorescent Oil Additive Method Use the 12 Volt Master UV Diagnostic Inspection Kit to carry out the following procedure for oil leak diagnosis. Add 29.6 ml (1 oz) of Dye-Lite® Gasoline Engine Oil Leak Detection Dye to a minimum of 0.47L (1/2 qt) and a maximum of 0.95L (1 qt) engine oil and fill through the engine oil fill. Thoroughly premix the gasoline engine oil leak detection dye or it will not have enough time to reach the crankcase, oil galleries and seal surfaces during this particular 15 minute test. The additive must be mixed well with oil and added through the oil fill. Check the level on the oil level indicator to determine what amount of oil to premix. If it is in the middle of the crosshatch area or below the full mark, use 0.95L (1 qt). If it is at the full mark, use 0.47L (1/2 qt). Run the engine for 15 minutes. Stop the engine and inspect all seal and gasket areas for leaks using the UV Leak Detector Kit. A clear bright yellow or orange area will identify the leak. For extremely small leaks, several hours may be required for the leak to appear. At the end of test, make sure the oil level is within the upper and lower oil indicator marks. Remove oil as necessary if it registers above the full mark. Leakage Points - Underhood Examine the following areas for oil leakage: Valve cover gaskets Cylinder head gaskets Oil cooler, if equipped Oil filter adapter Engine front cover Oil filter adapter and filter body Oil level indicator tube connection Oil pressure switch or EOP sensor Turbocharger oil tubes Leakage Points - Under Engine, With Vehicle on Hoist Examine the following areas for oil leakage: Oil pan gaskets Oil pan sealer Engine front cover gasket Crankshaft front seal Crankshaft rear oil seal Oil filter adapter and filter body Oil cooler, if equipped Turbocharger oil tubes Leakage Points - With Transmission and Flywheel/Flexplate Removed Examine the following areas for oil leakage: Crankshaft rear oil seal Rear main bearing cap parting line Flexplate mounting bolt holes (with flexplate installed) Pipe plugs at the end of oil passages Whether you choose to do it yourself without the benefit of fluorescent oil additive, or, if you prefer to hand off the task to dealership Service personnel, a thorough cleaning of the engine is the first step toward clearly recognizing the source of the leak. Good luck!
  3. Because the R&I procedure does not list draining the oil as a process-step, I doubt that it should be necessary, but it would be prudent to have a container at hand to catch drips that may occur initially when you remove the sensor/solenoid. And it is odd that parts department naming often does not match Workshop Manual descriptions. Good luck!

    2012 8mm intake bolt snapped Lincoln MKX

    The bolt breaking as you tightened it makes it likely that the broken portion remaining in the threaded brass insert is not seized or stuck, but may be rotated in a counter-clockwise direction by using a small hardened center-punch and hammer, according to the below-pictured instructions. If you don't have a center punch in your tool box, it should be an easy find at your local hardware store in the hand tool aisle. Below are PDF links to relevant 2012 Edge-MKX Workshop Manual sections on in-vehicle Upper and Lower Intake Manifold repairs, which include manifold bolt part numbers. You may wish to try to obtain replacement manifold bolt(s) from your local Ford or Lincoln dealership parts department and/or at a local auto parts store, due to the high-heat environment of the engine compartment. Hopefully, you will not have to resort to drilling the broken portion out to use an extractor tool, which you should also be able to buy at your local hardware and/or auto parts store. Good luck!

    Hope it's not a lemon ...

    ...which is not as costly as an Oxygen Sensor... (from Parts.Ford.com) If you are a do-it-yourself owner, these YouTube videos describe the fairly easy replacement procedure... And this one offers a bit more technical detail on the Purge Valve itself... Good luck!
  12. The diagnostics are costly because full circuit assessment requires access to the actuator connectors, hence the technician must disassemble the door panels. With your Ford dealer's involvement, you can be confident that only parts that deserve replacement are the ones you pay for, and, you may see a few old friends while you're there. Good luck!
  13. The several YouTube videos on door panel disassembly & door lock actuator removal reveal an involved process, but they lack any detail on how the need to replace the actuator was verified. Successful door lock operation extends backward from the actuators, through wiring and multiple connectors, to door switches and the remote locking/unlocking system, through more wiring and connectors, to the Smart Junction Box, which is a multi-function module containing relays specific to power locks operation. A door lock actuator that is not properly functioning may indeed be faulty, but its non-operation may also be the result of a corroded connector, an intermittently faulty door switch, or failed/failing non-replaceable relays in the Smart Junction Box. The 2008 MKX Workshop Manual provides step-by-step guidance on diagnostic "pinpoint" tests for the various circuits and components making up the power locking system. Among them is determining if any system-related Digital Trouble Codes (DTCs) exist that may indicate a specific fault has occurred. National-brand car parts stores may be capable of scanning your Edge for any recorded DTCs, which could be helpful. If a service professional or yourself have already absolutely determined the door lock actuators are the cause of your MKX's problem, then please forgive my redundant information. On the other hand, if you need connector diagrams for individual circuit testing, I can provide them.

  14. 'Free' is worth the wait. Good luck!
  15. Per page 17 of the Lincoln 2016 Model Year Warranty Guide (PDF download link)... — 8 years or 80,000 miles (whichever occurs first) for catalytic converters, electronic emissions control unit, and onboard emissions diagnostic devices. Good luck!
