That is definitely a first we have heard of the transmission mount failing. Pretty interesting actually as I did not even realize that our tranny mounts were that complex.

Follow-up To The Fluid Leak On My 2017 Ford Edge Sport

 

The dealer I decided to go to was 30 miles away from my home and I wanted to make sure I could drive that distance without damaging anything. My investigation showed there was no ATF leaking from the transmission and the ATF level in the transmission was full. I was convinced the fluid was emanating from above the transmission case so I removed the air cleaner, battery and battery tray for a better look. See photo below. I even used a flexible bore scope to get a better look in tight spaces. All signs pointed to the transmission mount area, but I could not find anything definitive.

When I dropped my Edge off at the dealership service department last Wednesday the staff was very impressed with my investigation and assigned the work order to their master mechanic. He was able to confirm that the transmission mount incorporates a hydraulic dampener that had failed and was leaking hydraulic fluid. This was a surprise to everyone. Before I took my Edge in I went through the Ford factory repair manual and I could find no mention that the transmission mount incorporated a hydraulic dampener.
 

It will take 7 to 10 days for a new transmission mount to arrive. In the meantime the service department staff said I could drive my Edge with out damaging anything.

 

BTW, back in the 60’s and 70’s I never hesitated to take my cars and motorcycles apart for repairs or to improve performance. I am guessing these days many are limiting their capabilities to the apps available on their smart phones.

This makes me wonder if it's my issue, I had "oil" sitting in certain areas on top the engine that appeared out of nowhere and I wondered how it could get that high
