About Lincoln Navigator
Lincoln Navigator is a full-size luxury SUV manufactured and marketed by Ford Motor Company since the 1998 model year. The first Lincoln Navigator was introduced in August 1997 for the 1998 model year as a more dedicated family vehicle than off-road vehicle. The Navigator, along with its counterpart Ford Expedition has seen a big sale success. Up to today, it has been produced through three generations.
The second generation Lincoln Navigator (2003-2006) received a thorough redesign. It offered two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive models and trims such as Ultimate. There were two engine options for it: 5.4 L InTech DOHC V8 engine and 5.4 L Triton SOHC V8 engine. Available transmissions included 4-speed and 6-speed automatic transmissions. In 2006 Chicago Auto Show, the third generation Lincoln Navigator (2007-2017) was unveiled. It carried two-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive models from previous generation and added new model Navigator L. From 2007 to 2014 it mainly got power from 5.4 L Triton SOHC V8 engine and since 2015 refresh, it has been powered by 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 engine. A new 6-speed automatic transmission is introduced into as well.
Lincoln Navigator Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
Though now Lincoln Navigator has more tendencies to be used for family than off road, some auto parts are still inevitable to wear only at a slower speed. And some problems as follows start to show on it:
First, electrical issues. In fact, electrical issues are not rare in most modern cars without exception for Lincoln Navigator. If the car's heater is not working or getting stuck on a certain speed or something gets jammed in the blower motor, it means the blower motor may be failing. And some other electrical components like parking assist distance sensor, window regulator, power winder motor, seat switch and seat heater switch are all very vulnerable auto parts.
Second, transmission and suspension system went bad. Lincoln Navigator owners said that the vehicle handling became slower and slower in response. What's more, rattling or squeaking noises kept coming from underneath the car, which was really annoying and would distracted their attention while driving. And transmission failure is often caused by a broken transmission sensor. So if you also have same suspension system problem, the sway bar bushing should be the first auto part to get checked.
Some other auto parts need routine maintenance as well. Wheel cover is a decorative disk on the wheels for many people. However, except the decorative function, it also is responsible for reducing the accumulation of dirt and moisture on wheels. So in order to make sure your Navigator runs more smoothly, remember to take good care of the wheel cover.
