First and foremost, I am unsure if I am posting in the correct topic.
I just purchased a 2017 Ford Edge Sport about 2 months ago with 36,500 miles on it. It now has 38,000 now.
I have noticed that SOMETIMES, when going at slow speeds 15-30 MPH, the transmission will do a rough upshift where you can feel and hear it click into the next gear. It only happens occasionally but that is the only problem I noticed until today.
Today, as I was pulling out of a parking lot onto a 2 lane 45 mile per hour zone. I didn't gun it or anything, I got up to 30 miles an hr, and switched lanes into one with oncoming traffic so I needed to hit the gas a little harder to merge in time. I never really went above 4000 RPM, but upon doing that and once I got into that lane it was as if I wasn't pressing the gas anymore. I didn't really hear anything loud, it just felt as if you were jolted forward because your car stopped accelerating. I got over to the right hand shoulder and noticed I had warning on my dash. I believe more than one. I am aware one of them was “service advance trac” however I shut my car off right after getting it into park (I should have looked at the lights more closely). When turning it back on, there was no lights, and everything has worked fine since…. Its only been about 12 hrs since, and I have driven it about 10 miles, but I wanted to get any insight you guys have.
I plugged in my own OBD scanner and couldn't see any codes. Will be taking it to the dealer to see if theres any advanced codes that they can see that I cannot see with my scanner.
My thoughts are:
* Misfire, causing engine limp mode which may caused advance trac to trigger an error because of the quick deceleration.
* AWD malfunction (my car stays in AWD until I am at cruising speeds)
* Transmission malfunction…
welcome! our edges are the same, perf blue st. what wheels do you have? do you have the 401 package?
i bought my '20 in feb this year. i have the black 21" wheels but not the hi perf brake package since it is not sold in canada. i have the 401 package.
one of the best things i've learned on this forum is the use of forscan to reprogram some of the things on the car like the horn beeping when i get out to pick up mail and leave the car running. also having the turn signal flash 7 times instead of 3 when i tap the stalk.
Am looking for a couple of things for the EDGE ST.
A hitch cover that just says ST on it.
Some AVS low profile vent visors. NOT the in channel ones, the stick on type. Want to maybe have them painted to match the body.
And last but not least, a clear bug shield. Want to have it painted to body color as well.
Now the ugly close ups. .
Here you can see just how messy the RTV is. It is very difficult to work with and it gets everywhere.
After I attach the Bottom Half Patch with Clecos, I use a heat gun to hand form the patch for a precise fit.
What happens is the stretched ABS shrinks when heated, and the nice straight lines end up looking like this,. or worse... No worries though, as it will never be seen, because it will be hidden under the insulation. This is a good example of function before form.
