I have a 2019 Lincoln MKC which is in the possession of a Lincoln/ Ford dealership currently after being informed by my local auto shop that I have an internal coolant leak which is listed on Lincoln’s technical service bulletin. I have spoken to Lincoln’s corporate concierge however, they are not willing to issue a recall due to the monetary expense to replace all of the defective engines. This is a Class Action waiting to happen.

No recall but a TSB should cover a new long block. Search this site for others with the same problem. Lots of info here.
Thank you! I have done lots of research & part of why I joined this platform. I was curious to truly see how many ppl experienced the same issue. However, even w/ presenting the TSB details Lincoln still will not foot the full expense.

Just as an FYI For anyone wanting to know, it is TSB 19-2208.

Unfortunately a TSB will not assign financial burden to Lincoln, it just guides a technician to a common cause of the problem. Recalls will force Lincoln to reimburse but not a TSB

Mine was around 60K + when I had the new long block. Was covered under warranty according to my Ford dealer where I bought it used. They said there was a TSB, but no recall. Was a 2017 I bought in 2021 with 52K on it. Took about a month for repairs. I have an earlier post regarding this issue. And Copbait is right about the financial burden, has to be a warranty issue not TSB.

i have a 2017 MKC with the 2.0 engine and had my engine replaced @ a little over 50k miles. I bought it as certified used took it to the dealer after replacing all the plugs & coil pack on cylinder #2 would not clear the misfire code. They had the car for 8 days and could not duplicate the problem gave me the car back drove about 10 miles and the check engine light came back on and the overflow tank level dropped below the minimum level. They had the car for another 4 days and called me to say they would replace the engine with the newer design model to fix the problem. They had the car for another week and returned it with the new long block & accessories installed i was charged zero $ and they gave me a loaner car( Corsair) to use for free. My suggestion is to explain the problem in detail to the service advisor and tell them you have researched the problem exstensively and what you believe is happening. They stayed in constant contact with me and my being able to ask questions and give them feedback i think helped my case. Good luck with your case i have put about 2000 miles since the swap and have had no further problems. Oh i forgot they did a complimentary oil& filter change at 1500 miles and will do another at 2500 more miles just to make sure new engine has no problems. Totally happy with Lincoln dealer and their service even though i didnt buy it from them as the dealer i bought from closed in May after 57 years as a Lincoln /Mercury dealer.
