Hi Everbody, first time here/posting.

 

Aside from lots of bad luck after getting in an crash, we love our 2016 MKX. That said, there are some things that have brought me concern.

 

Do any other owners experience a strong burning oil smell after idling for (seemingly) short amount of time? It does not seem to stop or air out for quite some time after an incident. Is it all the time in the body shop?

 

We had an inner fender rip off in the snow the other day. I'm certain that I did not hit anything. I just heard it go under the rear tires then saw it in my rear view mirror - in about 6 inches of snow. I had convinced myself that this thing was a mountain goat with a top hat but after this, I dunno.

Anybody hit the wife's seat memory settings and get squished into the dash all slow like the walls are closing in? I may have been on her case about bashing the rim in. Not really the cars fault I'm quite vulnerable to booby traps.

...  Anybody hit the wife's seat memory...

 

 

Which button would it be?  I don't think they have one.

 

I got 3 for the driver side none for the passenger.

She's drives the MKX normally so she uses #1 and I use #2. I should probably change mine to #3 so it is easier to push with gloves on.

I think he meant he accidentally pushed the wrong button. Why not tie the seat memory to the key fob? It sets the correct memory setting automatically when you unlock the driver’s door.

That's why they disable the buttons when driving. One time my wife was driving my Dad's car and she accidentally hit the seat memory. Being 5'2, next thing she knew she couldn't reach the brake pedal. Not good.

 

The keyfob memory works great, the seat is in position by the time I get in.

No, not normal. That being said, the most likely cause, given the background you stated, is the may have just added oil and spilled some on the engine. When the manifold gets hot, the oil on it starts to burn and that may what you smell.

If I were you, I would open the hood and make certain the oil fill cap is on tight and nothing looks out of place.

Thanks enigma-2, I'll have a look. Servicing has all been done at the dealer but I could not say that the smell is coincident with service visits. I notice it more after idling for a bit.
