Remanufactured Lincoln MKX Transmissions 

 

Once upon a time, two-door luxury coupes were marketed as personal luxury cars. That’s sort of the idea behind luxury crossovers like the Lincoln MKX. However, transmission problems with the 6F50 transmission aren’t very nice at all. So let’s take a closer look and find out if installing a remanufactured Lincoln MKX transmission can solve your transmission problem and save you a little money in the long run. 

 

Common Lincoln MKX Transmission Problems  

 

Slipping, Erratic Shifting, Harsh Forward or Reverse Gear Engagement: Some of the most common 6F50 transmission problems are slipping between gears, erratic up or down shifts, or a hard slam when the 6F50 transmission engages Drive or Reverse. There are a number of design flaws in this transmission, and any one of them could be causing these symptoms. 

 

Another common problem is overheating. This happens when the moving parts inside the transmission are creating more friction heat than the ATF can remove. The most common cause of this condition is towing heavy loads, driving in stop/go traffic, or on mountain roads where the transmission has to shift a lot. 

 

How to Solve Lincoln MKX Transmission Problems 

 

Solution A: Buy a Used Lincoln MKX Transmission 

Going to the local junkyard and picking up a used Lincoln MKX transmission might seem like the cheapest and fastest option. But you need to consider the fact that you don’t know what the actual shape of the internal components are. It could very well be on the verge of transmission problems of its own, which would leave you in the exact same predicament that you’re in now. And that 30 – 90 day junkyard warranty probably won’t cover labor charges to install the replacement transmission if something goes wrong. 

 

Solution B: Buy a Rebuilt Lincoln MKX Transmission 

Getting a rebuilt Lincoln MKX transmission would probably seem like a better idea. However, a lot of mechanics and transmission shops will only rebuild your Lincoln MKX transmission back to its original factory specifications. Which means that all of those factory design flaws are still going to be inplay. And that rebuilt transmission warranty might only be good at certain shops, which could do you no good if you have transmission problems while you’re traveling. 

 

Solution C: Buy a Remanufactured Lincoln MKX Transmission  

If you want to get the most service life out of your little luxury SUV as possible, then you really should consider a remanufactured Lincoln MKX transmission from Street Smart Transmission. Each one is completely disassembled and re-remanufactured, so nothing is left to chance. Theyre also modified to correct the factory design flaws, which will greatly extend the service life. Plus, you get a 3-Year/Unlimited Mile Nationwide Warranty. This will cover parts and labor charges at any licensed repair shop in the Continental United States, giving you a lot more flexibility and coverage.
