    Negative, coolant level is good, and consistent. It's perfectly normal. The golden light brown stuff is fuel & oil vapor (it gets darker as oil change is closer to due), highly volatile stuff that basically vaporized out of the hot crankcase and was caught by the catch can as it designed to do. The minimal milky sludge is just condensate from water produced by combustion, which is also perfectly normal. It's small comfort, but still good to know there is something catching that garbage instead of it going straight into my intake and coking the intake valves.

    Seems more like condensation than a full on water/coolant leak into the crank case. Do you live in a humid climate, do lots of cold starts, and possible not get it up to temp and keep it up to temp for your drives? I would get water emulsion on the oil fill cap on a few of my cars in the colder but not frozen parts of the year.

    Hi, I just purchased a 2021 Edge Titanium. I have owned a number of Fords before my last vehicle, which was a Mazda. (2003 Explorer, 2004 Sport Trac, 2010 Sport Trac, 2008 Focus) Glad to be back in the Ford fold. My Edge is Black. The last black vehicle I had was a 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Limited. Glad to be part of this forum. Thanks, Steve

    I was finally able to get this working. I spent hours on this and finally found a procedure on the F150 forum that worked. Below is a copy/paste from that post. The trick to programing the new FOB is, after the 6 on-off-on clicks, during the 3 horn-honks, you have to quickly take your foot off the brake and immediately press the "arrow" button. This has to be done during the 3 honks. If done correctly, you will actually hear the horn honk 4 times in a row--the 4th time is confirmation that the FOB has been programed.

    The contents of his catch can is normal for this time of year. In colder weather water vapor mixes with oil vapor creating the emulsion you see in the picture. The colder it gets the nastier it looks.

    The past few weeks there's been a few accounts obviously hacked and used to post malicious links. If you see such posts best you don't let your curiosity and click on the links, and use the "report post" button. The only option was to ban the hacked users accounts. This would be a good time to strengthen your account password.

    Picking what tools, spares, and handy items I want to keep under the cargo floor, around the spare tire. In my 2017 Escape it was pretty shallow, so I had to split up tool kits usually. The Edge is much deeper, so I could put stuff back in their blow molded cases. But I fired up the CAD program, and the 3D printer, and started making holders for things. Keep stuff together, and not rattle. I like this extending lug wrench, and I like having the most commonly needed ones, even though for my vehicle, I only need one. The 3 spare lug nuts (for $1 more the seller had a 23 pack for Jeeps...3 extra for the spare mount). I tried a surround style holder, but found I could easily replicate the M14x1.5 threads with my printer: Some more of the stuff I am making holders for. The flashlight is nice because we all know that batteries in a device frequently leak and kill the device. Once I get everything in a place, I will post it. I don't really consider this emergency stuff, but when I go places I always get tapped to fix stuff, and I hate dealing with other peoples tools (or lack of), but rope, tie downs, zip ties, rain ponchos, gloves, etc are nice and handy sometimes.

    What? I have it on my 2009! (Although it works a little differently). With mine, I simply kick my foot on the bottom of the cargo area and yell "Hey Linda, open the hatch". Pop's right open.

    I get it now. That's definitely not right. I looked and mine isn't like that.
