Carfax contacted me concerning the Orange Crush and a news reporter wants to possibly hear more on the Orange Crush.  The orange crush may rise from the grave.

I will start posting again in this topic once the replacement (Lullubelle, 2011 Ford Edge) reaches 200,000 miles in about 10 months.

The successor to the Orange Crush is going to be moved to this thread.   I fully expect Lullubelle (2011 Ford Edge Limited) to reach 200K miles by about June 2017.  I am sure the there will be some interesting repairs.  I can say both have had their issues, but not the same issues.

Getting ready to start back up with my 2nd Ford Edge to hit 200,000 miles.  Currently at 195,000 miles.   Ford is sending me a sticker for the High mileage club. 

 

My 2011 Edge has had a few issues before getting to this point:

Here is what the status currently is for repairs.

 

New alternator (motorcraft)

New battery (Odyssey Extreme AGM) 

New Coils and plugs (motorcraft)

New PCV (duralast)

New belts ( Gates)

New APIM (ford warranty replacement)

New Purge valve (changed before it failed) caught the issue developing so I changed it.  (motorcraft)

 

Standard fluids change: Oil, Trans, Power steering, brakes, coolant Etc. (various brands and synthetic)

 

New shocks and struts. (KYB)

Strut mounts (motorcraft)

New sway bar links (Moog)

New drivers side window (2) (No idea of brand)

 

Only one slight bumper scrape accident at 75 mph. Otherwise no accidents.

Can attain 110Mph so runs great.

Rotors and pads have only been changed once. (Autozone Duralast Gold and Duralast Ceramic)

Currently on third set of plugs (motorcraft)

Air filter (AEM dry filter) not cleaned and running for 80K miles so far.

Headlights converted to HID

Interior lights converted to LED's

Wheels chrome cladding removed and painted to match body color

 

This Edge is pretty much OEM at this time so let's see what the future holds in the follow up to the Orange Crush and it's legacy.

High Mileage Club?  Never heard of that.  I put 213k on my Explorer and never got into any High Mileage Club.  You sure it ain't the Mile High Club?  :whistling:

Way cool!  Considering the moon is about 240k miles away that's like driving round trip to the moon in your Edge.  I hope you made a pit stop every so often!!

Interesting that PTU is not on your lists given the issues and attention it gets here.  Looks like you are the poster child of how to get your moneys worth out of our rides!

macbwt = FWD only.  No AWD, and it seems to work out fine!

This is Lullubelle.  LU for short.  LU passed 200,000 miles yesterday and is running pretty good.  Thanks to the Orange Crush LU has benefited from lessons learned and Ford Engineering improvements.   LU stands in much better shape than the OC did at his point of 200,000 miles.   I will be making a video on the history of maintenance/repairs on LU to this point of 200,000 miles. Here a few photos in the mean time.

Here is my second Ford Edge to reach 200K miles.  Let's just say we are going to start off with a grrrrrrrrr.  Needs new wheel bearings.

Two new rear wheel hub/bearings were installed.  Removing them was rather difficult due to extreme rust.  Had to use a blow torch, hand sledge and a sliding sledge at the same time to bust them loose and even the hammers took some effort.  The housing where the hub mounted was so rusty that once I removed the rust the new hubs fell into the opening and I did not even have to pull the hub into position with the fasteners.

Man, God bless you guys that live up there in snow and salted roads country.  My 2 previous Explorers and now the Edge have all lived in warm temperate climates (Cali and Texas) and never had to deal with any rust or bad corrosion issues.  I did front hubs on my 4x Explorer once and they come off easily.  Hand sledge and slide hammer - yikes.  Aren't those WWF moves?

Finally got the two rear wheel hubs off.  Took a bit of effort (rust) but some heat and BFH's did the trick.

Time to change the transmission fluid with no tools. No crawling under the Edge etc. Just stand there and change the fluid. The Easy way.

I was thinking about one of those suction pumps for the PTU but I was concerned about how thick the fluid would be and if the thing could suck it out.

I found a local shop that will do a PTU flush/fill for $80 full synth, so I think I will go that route.
