    Water noise when I turn car on and idling

    sorry amigo. this has been bad news for many many members on our FB pages as well Ford corporate to date has helped cover some/most of the bill in some cases tho, when the mileage is reasonable. I would apply to them for assistance, the dealer may provide support in this regard, ask them. The numbers (%ages) may not support it, but we would like to see at least a Customer Satisfaction Program bulletin issued on it.
  2. no iac valve as such, all integrated into the PCM/throttle body electronics. this may help explain http://www.fordservicecontent.com/ford_content/catalog/motorcraft/OBDSM1802-2018.pdf starting pg 262

    Engine wants to stall...Code P1450 ?

    sometimes the p/n on the box and on the part are not in sync. have seen it happen a few times over the years. ford doesnt want to pay to update the packaging i guess. the p/n on the part should always be the updated one tho.

    Power Steering keeps exploding - '13 Edge Sport

    assuming ford/motorcraft parts were used. if fluid has never been flushed, you will want to do that as well, maybe more than a couple of times, until the fluid remains pink/red and new looking. i don't think you can actually monitor fluid pressure in the steering system, although there is a switch that sets off an alert for too high a pressure.

    Power Steering keeps exploding - '13 Edge Sport

    how many miles on your Edge? there is a banjo bolt kit ford issued but nothing else really for power steering. most issues center around a hose leak needing either brazing or replacement. if power steering has not been flushed regularly, it will cause a number of issues, ending in the failure of the pump and/or rack.

    Water noise when I turn car on and idling

    since you have a gen 2 with a 2.0, i would make sure a coolant intrusion issue is not in progress. check coolant level regularly, should pretty much hold steady with engine off and at ambient. if the CEL ever flashes, you may be looking at a block replacement in the future. Ford has issued a TSB for this issue https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jBJQQtJ635aSGsMyyFRKCFyFNNo1KnNw/view?usp=sharing

    Water noise when I turn car on and idling

    possibly air in the cooling system. what engine in your Edge? 2.0/3.5/2.7? ecoboosts are more prone to developing air pockets during coolant flushes, and can be a devil to get out on the 2.0. 3.5 is pretty good about it, 2.7 can be more troublesome.

    Help please! Acceleration stops on freeway!

    MyKey restrictions? Although this was a 2015 MY issue on the 3.5 engine, throttle body? what was the code that Ford found, this could be important to us? You can PM me for my email addy to send the video. @Jennifer Grebing

    Throttle Body swap

    there are at least 2 well known issues with this MY: the round robin of plugs coils PCM failure, and the failure of the timing system/water pump. this is why reading codes is SO important. you need to have an idea what the computer thinks may be wrong with your edge. maybe the pcm is fried, or maybe the timing chains/tensioners are loose. have to check codes first. get an obd II adapter from amazon (such as the veepeak or icar series) and software such as Forscan Lite for your smart device to not only read codes but live data as well.
  13. NOTE: The temperature control valve directs warm coolant to the transmission fluid cooler/warmer mounted on the transmission during transmission warm-up and allows the coolant to bypass the warmer when the transmission fluid reaches normal operating temperature. NOTE: At 38°C (100°F) ambient temperature, amber arrows indicate temperature approximately 82°C (179°F). only affects transmission warmup afaik. not a big deal if you don't live in a wintry state. may set a code or two.

    Using an insane amount of gasoline?

    please update us on miles on the vehicle and typical driving conditions, along with oil change routine. 2011 has a "defective" iolm, so i would not depend on it for oil change reminders. special operating conditions, overly long oil change intervals, fuel with insufficient additives, poor maintenance history with fluids, filters and plugs/pcv valve can all contribute to the mpg decline where the powertrain is concerned.
