Steering  - Driving - Lincoln MKX Owners Manual - Lincoln MKX

To help prevent damage to the power steering system:

Х Never hold the steering wheel at its furthest turning points (until it stops) for more than a few seconds when the engine is running.
Х Do not operate the vehicle with a low power steering fluid level (below the MIN mark on the reservoir).
Х Some noise is normal during operation. If the noise is excessive, check for a low power steering fluid level before seeking service by your authorized dealer.
Х Heavy or uneven steering efforts may be caused by a low power steering fluid level. Check for a low power steering fluid level before seeking service by your authorized dealer.
Х Do not fill the power steering fluid reservoir above the MAX mark on the reservoir.
If the power steering system breaks down (or if the engine is turned off), you can steer the vehicle manually, but it takes more effort.

If the steering wanders or pulls, check for:

Х An improperly inflated tire
Х Uneven tire wear
Х Loose or worn suspension components
Х Loose or worn steering components
Х Improper steering alignment
A high crown in the road or high crosswinds may also make the steering seem to wander/pull.
