At 212,000 miles I decided LU needed a cocktail of sorts.  This is what I did.

What to expect at 213,000 miles the one thing that destroys most cars in the midwest.  RUST.  this is my approach to extending the life of the Edge, but you can not stop rust just slow it down.

I still didn't get why you removed it? Only for the increased noise? That doesn't sound like you.

 

I guess your next video will be on how to change the brake light bulbs,  ;) Blueberry right top bulb is out (seen @ 17:52).

 

Also, maybe you already know this, but with ForScan you can monitor the individual tire pressures as reported by the TPMS through the BCM.

What? Can't hear you.   I did this to get  a bit more noise and to see what the real deal was. No change in git up go and no change in MPG's Just more noise on acceleration and yes I kinda like noise on acceleration.   Plus not a video I found of anyone actually performing the job. A lot of after the fact so since LU agreed to the operation I said why not.   Thanks for the tail light I have not noticed it was out. I do not drive BB much. Guess I will have to go out and buy LED brake light now. LOL

Repaired the coil pig tail connector on my Edge. This is how you can repair or replace the connector.

Well when I made the Title of this thread I never meant for it to include me driving a 2018 Hyundai Sport 2.4 AWD, but hey it is a rental so I will make lemonade out of the lemons while my Edge is in the body shop being buffed up and made good again. Got a few cosmetic major changes coming up so be ready.

A mod due to an accident so why not take advantage of the situation and make the Edge look even better than before.

Gotta love it.  -6 below zero and LU cranked and started without a flaw at 220,700 miles.

How well does the 221,000 mile Duratec start in -5 degree weather.  Pretty well. Check out the cold operation via forscan lite.

Awesome!  But, good God man, what is all that white stuff on the ground!?  They are predicting a 'wintry mix sleet and slush' here tonight in Dallas.  (I'm gonna' have to Google 'wintry mix.')
