what will happen by not changing the cat converter, continue to drive MKT
You will lose power and vehicle will not be able to go over 20-30 mph with gas pedal to floor and eventually vehicle will not start.
Check your warranty booklet. You should be still covered by the new car warranty for 5 years/50,000 miles or in some States it's 8 years/80,000 miles. Let Lincoln fix it for free!! HTH. -Jim
Ignoring a warning light is an idiot looking at an idiot light. Get it fixed.
LOL, now there's a best answer if I ever heard one, Bob!! -Jim
Risking damage to a newer Lincoln due to ignoring the warning light is not my idea of being smart. It is likely that if miles are low enough it would be covered under warranty. I wonder how the original poster knows the catalyst needs to be replaced. Maybe ignoring a flashing check engine light caused that and it was ignored. Wow, stuff like this just makes my blood boil!
