    2008 Ford Edge AWD Power Seat and Mirrors Fuse Blowing

    The connector at the DSM is known to melt/short on other model lines, so that could indeed be the issue, rather than the DSM itself.

    What Brand oil filter?

    Terrible mpg

    Did I miss it, or was the model year/mileage stated? There are a few common problems we can think of, but they can vary by model year/generation. Typically the high rev means a component coming on (such as A/C compressor) OR an intermittent vacuum leak that forces the PCM to raise revs to stabilize the engine. But there can be many reasons, including worn out spark plugs as PerBlue mentioned.

    Fuel consumption - L/100Km or the equivalent MPG

    http://fueleconomy.gov will give you the mpg ratings you want to look up (at least for the U.S.). https://fueleconomy.gov/feg/PowerSearch.do?action=noform&path=1&year1=2011&year2=2011&make=Ford&baseModel=Edge&srchtyp=ymm I think you are looking at the combined ratings, not the city ratings at 21. Bigger wheels and AWD will eat into the mpg, to the tune of almost 2 mpg. You have FWD, so that is not an issue. Fluids seem good too. Winter drops tire pressures, but it seems you are checking regularly so you are keeping them at 35 psi (I assume). City driving or "special operations" conditions it is not unusual to get lower mpg than rated unless you really hypermile it. Short trips and extended idling waste fuel and dilute the oil with fuel. If you smell fuel in the oil, the oil has run too long, or you may need a slightly higher viscosity oil to begin with (5W30 instead of 5W20, for example). 25,000 miles in 3 years (or worse, 4) is very low mileage annually. While I don't think the plugs need replacing, it is easy to pull and check Bank 2 (near radiator) to verify. Realize that Bank 1 plugs are more likely to have larger gaps but not by a significant margin. When were brakes last serviced (especially rears)? Were the slide pins and boots serviced at the same time (greased and/or replaced)?
  5. Reviving an "old" thread: Bilstein apparently does make replacements for the Edge platform (presumably fits MKX also if Motorcraft number fits) https://cart.bilsteinus.com Summit Racing carries the product line, so you can check for your specific application. https://www.summitracing.com Only B4 and B6 series ATM, no coilovers or springs IIRC.

    Power steering issues. Hard to turn

    ok not the gear at least. still could be the pump, if raising the rpms makes the effort easier.

    ST sightings in the wild

    Ford occasionally has ST meets, and they are well-coordinated. If you can sign up for one, it will greatly enhance your ownership experience.

    Water Pump Failure Prevention

    In all this hullabaloo, let's not forget that Ford created a groundbreaking vehicle, wellbalanced from both a performance and comfort point of view. We should applaud them for what they did right as well. Just my 2 cents.

    What have you done to/with your Edge/MKX today?

    Sweet, looks great!

    Newbie 2018 Ford Edge Titanium

    I absolutely hate having to buy a new vehicle 😄 Congratulations, best of luck, and welcome to the community!
  11. no special trick, just don't force it, as you risk snapping the arm against the glass and breaking it.
  12. You are not on the latest version of Sync3. 3.3 is the latest official revision. You can get 3.4 also, but so far, at your own risk.

    Touchy brakes

    That is a suggestion on my part in case the booster fix does not work. Not officially a Ford fix The booster would be OOP, not paid for by Ford in the absence of warranty.

    Power steering issues. Hard to turn

    What year Edge? Is the fluid full? Looks clean & healthy? Then I suggest you try replacing it completely / flushing with Valvoline MaxLife Full Synthetic ATF, which is mercon V compatible. Hope it is available where you are. Is it more effort turning in one direction vs another? Does the effort level go away with higher RPMs turning lock to lock while parked and idling?

    Touchy brakes

    MIght need ABS module reprogramming, OR brake booster replacement.
