Thanks for the reply. Our 2007 MKX has never been submerged in water. The deepest puddle we went through was maybe 6 inches. Anyhow, I think I am going to flush the PTU again and refill. Is there any suggestions on how to clean the vent other the flushing 3-4 times?

Rear different is also mentioned, don't know about the bearings.

I do have a question for you WWWPerfA_ZN0W. Is there a way to clean the actual vent? Our MKX is still leaking the PTU fluid all over our driveway and garage. The fluid is not as foul as the first time it started however. Would overfilling the PTU (in my case to the bottom of the fill plug) blowout any other seals? Or do you think it is still coming out of the vent. This is SO frustrating, since it didn't leak a drop after I flushed it the first time. The second drain/flush 2 weeks later seems to have done me in. Appreciate any advice you have at this point.

Did you check the integrity of the seal?

The vent (AFAIK) CAN be removed, but IDK about putting a new vent on or replacing the old vent.  Someone on this forum may have done it though, I will have to look.  If you do take the vent off, it might be possible to retrofit a Taurus vent extension kit on there so it ends in the engine bay and the risk of submersion is greatly reduced.
