  1. Robert does not seem to be engaged in any of the forums lately. I’ve pinged him on Facebook a few times with no success.
  2. It was changed in 2019 but I don’t remember if it was before or during the 2019 model year.

    [update/conclusion] White smoke on acceleration

    Could have just been temporary excessive moisture in the exhaust system.
  4. Yes but they’re optional and clearly advertised as summer only tires.
  5. I’m saying the usb port doesn’t support analog audio input like you’d normally find on a cd player. It wants digital storage or a digital playback like a thumb drive, ipod or phone. Some new one like the one you linked might have a digital interface so those might work but I wouldn’t count on it. Using a USB flash drive is just so much better.
  6. They won’t work. Just rip the cd to your computer and copy it to a usb flash drive. It will hold thousand of songs and you can access then with voice commands.
  7. All transverse mounted 3.5L have the internal water pump including ecoboosts.

    2012 Edge "Check AWD" warning

    You start by pulling codes not randomly replacing parts that may or may not be bad.

    Turbo flutter noise

    I think it’s computer controlled but it’s probably some incompatibility with the aftermarket turbo rather than it being faulty.

    2019+ PTU Wear is Different

    Are you seeing actual wear in the rear diffs or just going by the fluid appearance?

    No Response to throttle pedal

    I’d say throttle body is the most likely culprit.

    2013 Edge, 2.0 oil leak

    The oil on the tailgate is from the oil leaking out while driving. The sensor does not measure oil level only oil pressure so it may or may not be bad. My guess is they used the wrong gaskets or I stalled them incorrectly or left something loose allowing the oil to leak out rapidly.
  14. That’s the ONLY way to do it!
