So I went to the dealer recently and my car was running fine until a vacuum pump issue, the dealer fixed it, said there was “no oil” which was checked before, so they did an oil change and now saying my turbo isn’t creating boost and it’s bad. Has anyone heard of it? So I truly need a brand new turbo? They’re charging $2600 to fix the issue. But said I can drive the car how it is “just take it easy”. Driving the car it’s beyond slow and I had a flash on and off “oil pressure low” and didn’t come in again.
I’m iffy about this dealer because every time I bring it in a new problem occurs literally down the block-this last time they replaced my battery and now that oil alert flashed and now “tired pressure sensor faulty” stays on….and I just got an email from then stating I denied about 8 services I’ve never even heard of. Please let me know of anything I could possibly do or try regarding the turbo and what issues could this cause in the future?

Hi itsyaboikacy and welcome to the MKZ Forum. What model year, engine, miles etc.? Assuming you are out of warranty, my best advice would be to get a second and possibly third opinion. For example, another Lincoln Dealership and an independent shop? Do you have a local/independent shop you trust, or can ask a friend/family member for a recommendation?

Tell them about the issues, and let them perform an estimate. Do not tell them you visited a Dealer already, or what the first Dealer told you about the turbo.

Let us know how you make out and good luck.

Hi itsyaboikacy. Then if out of warranty, my previous advice would still be my best recommendation: Get a second and possibly third opinion. For example, another Lincoln Dealership and an independent shop. Do you have a local/independent shop you trust, or can ask a friend/family member for a recommendation?

Tell the shops about the issues, and let them perform an estimate. Do not tell them you visited a Dealer already, or what the first Dealer told you about the turbo.

Blind Interrent diagnosis is difficult at best, and nearly impossible for an issue like this. You can have the OBDII system scanned for DTC codes by your local big box auto store. Many, like AutoZone, will do it for free. Then you can post back with the codes. However, even that will only give a general idea as to the possible problem area. But it does not hurt to try.

Let us know how you make out and good luck.
