Customer Question
After driving for a...

After driving for a while there is a clicking or thumping sound coming from somewhere in steering or shock system. Took to carcare and they said maybe struts. I do not feel struts at 76000 miles?????

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Feels like noise is comingnfrom center or under car. has been going non about 11/2 months. it seems the car has to warm up b4 it happens. Doesn't usually happen when first driving

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '11 Lincoln?

It is a 2009 MKZ

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your MKZ yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have not fixed it myself. ave not had problems only routine oil changes. i have heard there may be a recall on the MKs due to steering column problems????

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Give me your vin# ***** I will check for open recalls?

Is this concern agitated by bumps or steering left/right?

Must you be driving to hear it?

Can you feel it as well?

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
