  1. It’s either the fuel pump priming itself or the rear differential solenoid calibrating. Nothing to worry about. There may be a TSB to make it less noticeable - check with the dealer.

    Air filter question

    You're definitely a special case. Now go to your room and finish your homework!

    Air filter question

    The biggest restriction is always the butterfly in the throttle body until you hit WOT.

    Yes, the K&N filters make a huge difference.........in sound.

    Cooled Seats

    I don’t think they changed the design - the same TED that heats the seats also cools them. I think Ford just changed some of the wording to prevent customer complaints when they don’t cool well.
  6. Yep that looks correct. Have you tested it with a voltmeter or a 2nd device? Maybe your plug is bad.
  7. Make sure there isn’t a coin lodged in it. Might also be a different fuse.

    Yes just don’t go over 7500 miles.

    full synthetic to semi?

    How do build them and not know the difference? Edge ST is DI only. F150 is DI and PI. Even Ford says so.

    full synthetic to semi?

    Wrong. Edge and Nautilus get the first gen 2.7 with direct injection only. F150 gets the 2nd gen 2.7L with dual injection. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_EcoBoost_engine

    full synthetic to semi?

    Im sorry but that’s incorrect. Only the 1.5L dragon (3 cylinder) and the 2nd gen 2.7 and 3.5 in RWD applications get dual injection. All the rest including 2.0, 2.3, transverse 2.7 and 3.0 are direct injection.
  12. I’ve never gotten more than 4 years from a battery, sometimes 3. It’s just the nature of modern vehicles and battery technology. I need to replace the one in the mkx now- it still works fine but the tester says it’s down from 850 cca to 450. Won’t be long until it’s completely dead.

    2011 Ford Edge sel awd wont start - fuel pump?

    That’s pretty rare that a fuel pump goes bad. I would check fuel pressure before replacing the pump.

    Start Stop Disable

    It’s not a big deal if you just let it work for a few weeks. You’ll forget it’s there.

    2014 3.5L cooling fan issue

    Yep and use Motorcraft. Vast majority of the aftermarket fans don’t work right out of the box.
