Did you notice the lack of Ford Edge repair videos?

I thought they just send them to the crusher straight away.

Most likely option when I trade my Ford Edge in.  Or maybe it will be worth more in parts than as a whole vehicle.

Go figure the gas cap light has went out.  I did replace the gas cap a while back.  Ligtht has been out for two or three days now. 1) the light burnt out or 2) the gas cap fixed the problem.

Oil changed again with High Mileage oil mobil one.  Used one quart in 5k miles.  ODO reading 259,200 mi.   Oil usage a little high based on past changes. This would be the most ever used.  I still have not changed out the PCV which is now climbing to the top of the list.

I did not see the oil. That being said the same folks that change it have been changing it for as long as I have owned it.  They are usually pretty good and informing me of visiable color changes in the vehicle fluids.  Never had an issue even once with their services and they were the ones that stressed to me to change over to high mileage oil to help the seal that was leaking.

Congrats on the high mileage! Takes good maintenance and a good driver to get as far as you have.

 

My parents drove our '10 right at 20K/yr. My wife put 40K on her 03 Chevy K2500 CCSB Gasser in 13months, w/ something that doesnt get 12mpg I bet she goes further. My mom averaged 26mpg to town and back, nearly 30 on the open road a few times, I hope my wife can replicate it. We plan to keep our car 5yrs which could put us near 300K miles or more.

I used to say I would drive it till the wheels, tranny or engine fall off or out.  So far none of the mentioned parts have done that. Although I have completely rebuilt the front suspension components. After a chrysler, Suzuki, and Chevy the Ford has so far gone the furthest with the least number of non consumable repairs.

If he does, Ford should give him something to recognize the feat.

Just wish there was a way to update the thread title to "what to expect at 260,000 miles"   I am beginning to think I am going to take this car down the road for a while longer and now believe the 500K might be in the light at the end of the tunnel.  I fuly expect to be over 300K this time next year, easily.

I changed the title to "What to expect at 200,000+ miles" and pinned it because it has so much good information.

The end of the year is near. Edge starts, runs, turns and stops.   Just like it has done for the last 6 years.  Next week another 1k miles and off to the races again. Wonder if I will hit 300K by Oct or Nov time?

Well a minor issue with radio.  I can not see the display.  Seems to have a display but very very faint.  Thankfully I have things preset but if I loose power I will not be able to see to redo the presets.  Anyone experience this or know what the problem is?

That rings a bell - do a search for display repair. Might have been on another forum but I remember somebody doing a DIY repair. Not sure if it required a new screen or just resoldering.

Thanks. Sort of a kick in the pants on the radio display.  Guess if I get fed up with it I will need to replace it with an aftermarket radio, which could lead to other issues.  I will wait and see.

11 degrees below zero and the Edge cranked over and started. Of course a new battery helps.
