I have a 2010 mks awd, wife was driving it and saw smoke coming from under the hood, took it to ford and they said the axle seal was leaking on the manifold causing the smoke, I have pretty good mechanical knowledge but was just wondering if this has happened to anybody else

The service advisor said that my ptu was leaking onto the exhaust pipe also. I physically noticed that the gear oil leaked onto the frame of the vehicle and saturated the rear engine/transmission mount to the point that it also needed replaced under the warranty.


MY 2013 Lincoln Mks only had 35,000 miles on it when the ptu started leaking fluid. I purchased it with only 32,000 miles. Thank god it was still under warranty. Now that a new ptu was supposedly installed by a local Ford dealer in my area, the exhaust seems to be louder under the drivers seat than it was before the repair. I guess that is what happens when they have to remove the whole exhaust including the exhaust manifold. Also after a few months, I also notice that the front wheels have a wash board ride to them starting at 45 mph and they really rumble at 65 to 70 mph. The vehicle was a certified Lincoln with brand new tires. A week after the repair, I took it back to the dealership to have it checked for the louder exhaust issue and they had the technician who repaired it to go over it again. I feel that it should have been evaluated by a fresh set of eyes. I now have an appointment with the dealership that I originally purchased it from 1 year ago. I will let the technician drive the vehicle while i am in the passenger seat.  I will update everyone with the results.
