2015 Lincoln MKT Transmission failure

Recommended Posts

Purchased Lincoln MKT new in 2015 but didn’t set up for towing until this summer.  Parked at dealer today to get transmission rebuilt with only 62K miles.  Only 3K towed miles and last trip was in August.  Owner’s manual set up procedure followed explicitly.  Dealer doesn’t believe towing caused the failure and is repairing under warranty, but never had a transmission fail with such low mileage.  Any observations?  3.5L EcoBoost AWD

We had a Ford Explorer that we used to tow a small travel trailer, well within Fords ratings.  Had the tranny rebuilt at 10,000 miles.  

Sometimes you get a bad one right out of the box.

Ford transmissions on the newer cars are very touchy with a little off programing can trash the transmission.  The replacement transmission has to have all the solenoids numbers programmed into the computer before it's ever put into gear.  That is online with the programming tool to the Ford website.  The AWD PTU is lots of problems also.
