What does the MAF sensor do?  More than you think.  A lot of engine management and transmission management centers around MAF sensor data.

Get yourself some fluid film. Should prevent it from spreading more

http://www.fluid-fil...e-applications/

I've been using it for years to prevent rust. The stuff works wonders. My work vehicles gets sprayed once a year & there's very little signs of rust, most likely developed prior to applying Fluid Film. Every time i work on any of our vehicles, i apply fluid film. Kinda like preventative maintenance.

Here's a video that i really like that shows exactly what fluid film can do:

Mac, my 2011's front suspension is starting to knock a little while going over bumps.  I already did the swaybar links.  What usually goes first up front???  Just hit 90 Grand.

Gosh,  I am at 200,000 just about.   Only suspension work I have done to my Edge is new struts and strut bearing mounts.   Check those and ball joints.

After about 8 times around the circumference of the earth and just 40K miles short of a one way trip to the moon. My Edge LU has now developed wheel bearing failure.  Not exactly sure which wheel(s) but I will let it ride just a bit longer to make it easier to determine the failed wheel then if it is the back I will replace both rears and so on.  Either way I will be replacing ALL four wheel bearings shortly. Now just to decided do I go with OEM motorcraft, SKF, Timken or Moog  so many decisions.

Long term effort to test oils with the duratec 3.5.

 

I have ran various oils to date through my 3.5 Duratec on both of my 2011 Edge's.

 

I am now changing the oil brand for the 5th time.  I have ran a synblend bulk oil initially with bulk filter then changed to a AMSOIL with AMSOIL filter for multiple runs with the 0W20 and now I am using Mobile one with AMSOIL filter.

 

I am now going to the the Purolator Boss oil filter and REDLINE 5W20 synthetic motor oil.

 

I have testing from many of this oils under two entirely different extremes.  1) all city high idle time and 2) all interstate mileage.

 

I run the same oils during the phase of the testing for Each brand

 

The All city Edge is ran for 100 hrs and the All highway is ran for 200hrs

 

Results so far have me against using 0W20 weight oil for any 3.5 for two reasons;  1)  Bearing and high metals wear the oil is just too light for hard use  2) Highway use the extended drive hours (200) the Duratec consumes the oil through the PCV system and will use over a quart of oil during a 200 hr run.

 

Currently I have mobile one and have lost just over half a quart in the 200hrs and the 100hr engine seem to be just slightly down at nearly 100hrs.   Testing samples will be collected soon

 

My goal is to build a data base of use in hours and type of oil my weight and brand and hopefully show how the oils behave with the 3.5 duratec.

Great experiment. Consider adding Motorcraft blend as the Ford dealers now use.

I am sticking with full synthetics as the blends IMO will not hold up to the high hours testing and the results will be incompatible to the synthetics.

Hello everyone,  MAC T here and I am starting a new topic called double edged.  The situation is as follows:

I currently own and drive two Ford Edges. This topic will be used to follow two 2011 Ford Edge Limited as they both experience usage in opposition.  The Blue Metallic 2011 (MOMOSHA Car) driven mostly city driving and virtually no highway vs the Cinnamon Metallic 2011 (work car) which will be driven 95 percent of the time on interstates in long haul driving situations. 

 

How will each one handle the different driving conditions?  What repairs will result in the greatly different usage?   Time will tell and it will be documented on this topic.

 

Note: The documentation of most repairs will be on video.

It has now been two years documenting the maintenance and repairs on both of the 2011 Edge's.  So far pretty good results and both are still reliable and run very well.

 

Had some repairs, but I would consider most to be under the consumable list.   Let's see what the future holds as the miles build up.
