no problem, someone else shared it on FB and I wanted to make sure it was shared here too. I got it applied yesterday felt good after getting it back but it usually does when it's warm. I took it out this morning and it felt solid. I get a hard shift/buck at the same points during my morning drive that it's basically predictable, it didn't happen this time. I also tried to reproduce it like I have in the past and it didn't happen. Shifting feels better between 3/4. I'm cautiously optimistic since it's a small sample size but this could be it.
The OP was October 2015. That person might not even own the vehicle or be a member of the forum any longer.
If you're having the same issue take a look at the easy clean and lube process posted here: https://www.gadgetjq.net/edge/roof/bamr.html
Mine is leaking again. I don't know the exact mileage since it was last replaced but its over 30,000 I do know that. I think its inevitable that they leak unfortunately. Next time the oil needs to be changed I will be taking it in for the pan replacement...again.
If you own a second gen. Edge and have lowered it I have a few questions for you:
1) What model year do you own?
2) What kit did you use, and who did you get it from?
3) How much cost was involved for all of the items needed to lower it? (don’t include new tires and wheels if replaced)
4) How much did your work drop the vehicle?
5) How does it drive?
6) How are the tires wearing after the drop?
7) Any alignment issues?
8)Are you happy with the end result and would you use the same “kit” if you were to do it again?
Any other thoughts?
Depending on where you are, there are shipping companies that make ordering from the US very easy. Like Shopandship.com, they would give you a virtual address in the US (and other cities worldwide) and your transaction with the seller would be like a normal domestic purchase, then Shopandship would take care of shipping it to you. There rates are usually less than what the seller gives you. Also, at least here, in many cases it would also be cheaper than the local dealer's price.
Unfortunately leaky oil pans are a fairly common issue on the 2.7 EB - many on the Fusion Sport forums are having the issues (as well as the F-150 owners), so it's not just an Edge Sport issue. As akirby said, a LOT of dealer techs just don't follow the proper procedure. Some instructions state a minimum of 4-hours is needed for the RTV to cure before even putting oil back into the engine/pan. I'm sure many techs just don't pay attention and don't seal things well, too. I also recommend you try another dealer, or ask the SA if they're actually following the procedure for this issue. Last, I'm sure the dealer is aware by now but it still has to be said - make sure they are replacing the pan every time it comes off the engine!
Interesting to see that the newer 2.7's have a regular gasket tho.
