New Ride, and Questions about Manuals
« on: December 30, 2018, 07:53:26 am »
I just bought a 2019 Lincoln MKZ 3.0 AWD. It's pretty sweet, with a twin-turbo V6 that produces 400HP. Stock pictures from the Lincoln web site attached.

Does anyone know if it's possible to buy a copy of the current MPC that includes part numbers for 2019 model year Lincoln vehicles and the 2019 service manual for the MKZ? My favorite search engine hasn't produced any leads...

That's a half liter less and 25hp more than the twin turbo truck version of the eco boost engine.

Can't comment about the manuals...but looks like a pretty sweet new ride.  8)  Is the 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 long gone?  I still have my '06 Magnum SRT8 tucked away in the shop.

I still have the Charger for now, but I'm planning to sell it. LOL, the Lincoln dealer offered me $3,500 for it in trade. That's around 1/3 to 1/2 of what all of the online estimators suggest it's worth in trade, so I thought I'd try to sell it myself.

Very spendy. Used to be able to purchase temporary access to individual model lines but now all I see on the https://www.motorcraftservice.com/Purchase/ViewProduct web site is the all year/model package. I haven't seen any printed catalogs past 2011.

Yeah, the Magnum is worth "so little" that I have just kept it all these years!  50,000 miles and had to have the front end totally rebuilt.  It needs a very expensive brake job but I put so few miles on it that it's not critical.  Post pix when you get the new ride!

Thanks. It looks like they have a 2019 service manual CD listed for $186.

It does! Driver controls the brake and the accelerator, but the car controls the steering. It can park itself in both parallel and perpendicular spaces.

Someone has to have a sweet tune available for it. Likely dial another 50 hp in a flash. Is there a forum following for performance upgrades Scott? I love fast sedans, especially sleepy looking domestics. Congratulations on a slick ride !

I've only found two somewhat active Lincoln forums. I'm getting the feeling that the typical Lincoln buyer isn't exactly Internet or performance savvy, if you know what I mean...

Congrats!!  The latest MKZ with the updated grille is the best looking car to come out of Detroit in a looong time in my opinion.  Wife and I test drove one 3-4 years ago and plenty quick even with the previous 375? hp engine.  I loved it and would have been all in to buy one but her not so much... She has just gotten used to the feeling of security in a big SUV with more metal around her so we went with an Expedition which, I'll have to admit, are great for groceries and grand kids.  My daily driver is a pickup so her decision.  ;) ;D

You might try www.ford-trucks.com   There are lots of late model Raptor owners over there with the twin turbo eco-boost that are modifying them for more hp.  Come to think of it our 2017 Expedition has the twin turbo eco boost and although it's pretty quick it could use a few more ponies at times.
