Some 2015-2016 Lincoln MKC vehicles equipped with a 2.3L GTDI engine and built on or before Feb. 23, 2016, may exhibit a heavy continuous blue smoke at the exhaust with a burning oil smell after idling for 10 minutes or longer.

Check the part tag on the crankcase vent oil separator using a flashlight. Look through the opening to the right of the throttle body. If the tag has no bar code, this bulletin does not apply.

If the tag has a bar code, the vehicle is not equipped with a high flow crankcase vent oil separator system. Replace with a high flow vent oil separator P/N G1FZ-6A785-A. You will also need an intake gasket P/N CJ5Z-9439-A. Reprogram the PCM to the latest calibration using IDS release 101.01 or higher.
