  1. Since this type of thread hasn't been started yet, thought I'd give it a little push. Very popular on other forums, hope to make it a success here as well! Posts should generally be short & sweet, detailed postings better placed in their own thread or added on to existing appropriate threads. That's the idea. I replaced the fog lights on my Edge yesterday. They were looking somewhat anemic compared to my Osram NB Plus headlights. Went with Optilux (Hella) H11 Extreme Yellow bulbs for visibility. At least I can make out I have fog lights on now! Still to be tested at night. Next up, polish the fog covers to maximize the light.

    Brown spots on the chasis

    rail dust can get on the vehicle during shipping to the dealer or owner, from factory. over time, it will show itself. surface rust is very common in some areas like frame and driveshaft. no failures to date due to rust, except maybe remotely on the body panels. you can try claybarring it or giving it a good dose of products like IronX before the bar. that will tell you how bad it is. if really concerned, get into an annual regimen of WoolWax or Fluid Film for protection. https://www.youtube.com/c/MACTFordEdge/search?query=rust https://www.youtube.com/c/FordTechMakuloco/search?query=woolwax

    Rough Idle and trouble codes P0018 and P0021

    not too early at all. if you think about it, the edge is practically 12 years old. it has had avg 12K/year put on it, less than the national 15K/year. and we all know how traffic has worsened in the last couple of decades. if you have been following ford maintenance schedules, you are in for a shock. All fluids (trans, power steering, brake and coolant) should be serviced on a 5/60 schedule from mile 0. the fantasy "normal' maintenance schedule exists for an ever diminishing owner population. AWD fluids - every 3/36 max for PTU, 6/72 max for RDU. look up how much it costs to replace either unit, and you will quickly realize the value of regular maintenance. plugs should be changed on a 5/60 schedule as well, with PCV valve at least being cleaned if not replaced. the tube on the valve is a PITA to take off, but it will yield to heat lol. https://www.youtube.com/c/MACTFordEdge/search?query=maintenance

    Rough Idle When Cold/P0301 Code

    Welcome. As soon as I saw 2016 and 2.0 and a misfire code, I was ready to cry lol. It may simply be the plugs need changing. ecoboosts eat plugs for lunch, and 60K is a good interval to change them anyway regardless of engine. if a plug change/code reset does not fix the problem, you MAY be looking at a coolant intrusion problem. check the engine label on the right side of the valve cover. post a pic plz. does it say Cleveland or VEP. how is the coolant level? you will want to mark current level with a marker, then follow progress daily/weekly. do you have remaining ford warranty?
  5. i dont like the feeling when i adjust them manually, there is a good amount of resistance in the system. if you can do it once and leave it there, that would be ok. if the switch is not the problem, the motor could be. do you have memory seats?

    2008 Edge, Timing Off on left side

    i hope you A) replaced all the TTY bolts, and B ) used cam holders before taking the system apart. did you put on new timing chain/tensioners/guides? all parts ford/motorcraft or were they aftermarket?

    Rough Idle and trouble codes P0018 and P0021

    knee jerk reaction? water pump/timing chain failure. P0016 and P0018 codes are basically the same animal. bank 1 vs 2. as the timing chain stretches or tensioner loses flexibility, power loss can definitely be a symptom as the PCM retards timing to save the engine. how many miles on your Edge? the work can be DIY, depending on your mechanical ability. it is an exhautive process and you must be diligent about following procedure. you can follow the video series on this work over at YouTube.

    The Ultimate 2.7TT Aftermarket Parts Thread!

    @snmjim the conversation gets out of whack now and then. we definitely do not want you to mothball Edge stuff in any way, it is amazing what you and your son have achieved in a relatively short period of time. there is much you have contributed also outside of this forum, that many may not be aware of. stick with us.

    Edge 2019 AWD malfunction service required

    probably something wrong with the viscous coupler in the RDU if tires and fluid and axles check out.

    2009 Edge SEL - New replacement key fob recommendations

    i hear batteries plus can program keys, you can check with them. nowadays, hardware stores can cut the physical key. look up ratings for fobs on amazon and pick a well-reviewed vendor. KeylessOption is what i have used in the past. you can have the whole package thru the mail using https://fxbgkeys.com Jeff Leeper is a principal in the business.

    Can’t Start my 2016 Titanium

    check for codes. if there are existing codes, they may be preventing the engine from starting. happens with remote start for sure, dunno about key/pushbutton starts.

    New member, 2007 Ford Edge SEL Plus

    welcome, nice ride. note that 3.5EB will be a difficult job without some massaging of the frame and body. the transverse version is too wide to fit in the current config/space, and the longitudinal version, well, needs more room up front. might be better off putting in a 2.7 or 3.0 EB. if retaining the current engine, you can watch videos on the Edge on YT ... my sig gives you some ideas.

    2.0L Ecoboost Coolant Leak - Engine replacement

    using coolant sealer products will not work in the long run, nor if you step to anything above low throttle. ChrisFix has a video where he has tested such a product. best deal is to either trade your vehicle in, or put in a nonCleveland block, OR go for a full Sport conversion 😄

    2010 p2196 and p2198

    mileage? maintenance history as above? when codes happen, start with the simplest possible reasons. combustion is fuel + air + spark. you have not addressed spark yet. although not common on the 2010 MY, i certainly hope the PCM is not fried.

    Rear Wiper Delete

    Looks good! never needed one on sedans as they don't come with one lol. but i do drive in as much of a "360" mode as possible as it makes traffic motion more predictable. plus activating the rear wiper/washer occasionally lets the driver behind me know i am watching them lol. nobody thinks twice about a rear cam watching them.
  20. that's the ford philosophy ... not bad, not great, but good enough. works well for the average owner, or has worked i should say, given that "normal" conditions as defined by them seem to be disappearing.
  21. you can now opt for LED replacements for HID bulbs if you so please. but there is some wiring (not terrible) for the good ones.
