Been driving a 2012 Fusion SEL with the 3.0L. I love the car but I always complained that it was too slow and wished I got the Sport with the 3.5L. I feel a lot better after watching this video.

3k iam getting it done as we speak ..its still cheaper then 5 years of payments …2013 lincoln mks we have hardly put any money into it for 7 years

JoJo Da Gamer says:

There's an upper bearing on some of those struts in the Ford 500 and as you turn it will clunk like a spring kinda letting go lol and they go all the time

TSTaterSalad says:

Check them all!

Thinks a lot for your information and knowledge appreciate that I haven't 09 Lincoln and I want to head into the water pump timing chain and everything and I have a clump in front and I replacing the strats but used ones for $140 off a Lincoln only had 133 miles on it

Tyler Wilcox says:

Does the 2.0 eco boost have that type of water pump ?

Cracker With Attitude says:

I need more information my car shifts so rough
Google says Powertrain control module and sure but if that doesn’t solve the issue.. literally what Honda can I rely on I need one of them.

Two to three weeks ago, the Car Wizard did a video on a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox AWD crossover with the 2.4 L Ecotec four-cylinder engine. It costs about a thousand bucks to replace the water pump, compared to this 2012 Lincoln MKZ AWD or FWD sedan or any Ford vehicle with the 3.5 L V6 engine, which costs around three to six thousand to remove the engine to get to that water pump, same goes for the 3.5 L Ecoboost V6 engine and the 3.7 L V6 engine, including the older, 2007 to 2015 Mazda CX-9 crossover (first-generation). When you plan to buy any used vehicle, you always want to make sure, you check the water pump for any leaks or any cracks, same with other used vehicles. Also, check for other types of mechanical issues, as well. Anyway, I am hoping that the Car Wizard will get another vehicle inside Omega Auto Clinic this week, either tomorrow afternoon or on Thursday. I am leaning that he would detail and inspect a 2013 Toyota Sienna SE eight-passenger minivan with the newer 3.5 L V6 engine and the six-speed automatic transmission from Toyota, as known as the swagger wagon. Mrs. Wizard and himself will be impressed about that minivan, even though their children have been grown up already. I just want to make sure that the 2013 Toyota Sienna SE minivan is properly maintained by any customer who owns and/or drives the vehicle, because they are still great minivans and they are still fairly new at eight years of age. I am looking forward to check out that minivan, because the Car Wizard has not got any newer minivans in his shop, yet. Thank you very much and good luck.

r any of the MKZ reliable? hybrid? 3.7 v6?

laurentkm3 says:

If you mentioned this in your video, I must have missed it. My question……..Is there a way to make the water pump last longer or is the water pump issue completely random?

John Miller says:

why would a loose brake caliper be an expensive repair?

Mark Dumagpi says:

After the holidays ended and 2021 began, the Car Wizard introduced his opening clip for each of his all-new videos. I am hoping for more in-depth, maintenance and repair videos for a 2009 Toyota Highlander 4WD mid-size SUV with the 3.5 L V6 engine and the five-speed automatic transmission with sport (manual-shift) mode and a 2016 Kia Forte compact sedan with the 1.8 L four-cylinder engine and the six-speed automatic transmission, also with sport (manual-shift) mode. One of these vehicles could have their warranty expired already.

I want a 2013-19 taurus SHO so bad but this water pump issue almost scares me away from them completely. Ive heard if you change the coolant regularly, it’ll hold up for years before it fails but every other car ive owned, the water pump cost practically nothing to fix

Phillip Vassilaros says:

Dude u just help me from buying a ticking time bomb because i was looking at one with only 68,000 miles at a used car dealership so thank u

Matt Fritch says:

Another great idea from an idiot engineer that has never had to work on anything they design.

Northern Traveller says:

The part he fails to mention is that most Edge's with the 3.5 will go 200000 to 300000 miles without a problem. Don't drive the shit out of it and they last a long time without issue. A new Edge now comes with a 2.0L 4 cylinder, which won't last as long.
