    Did you guys read that ?

    Reread the post if you use a long enough transparent hose you can see when the dirty oil gets close to the engine. I used an icemaker hose and the oil was drained several feet before reaching engine. As far as asking a ford dealer, they all say you do not need to change ptu oil for 100,000 miles. Now what is the stupidest post

    If you do not have a vac pump this will work with minimal expense.....why do you think this is a bad idea I already drained my PTU with 20 ft hose connected to manifold not a drop of oil reached engine ...sucked out approx. 14 oz

If you compare an older PTU with the new drain plug style you will see extra reinforced metal around the plug
  7. You can connect a long transparent rubber hose to any vac. line that goes directly to the intake manifold (brake booster, PCV line) if you run the end of the line into the PTU or RDU fill plug you can suck out the fluid by starting the engine thus applying vacuum to the line....Be careful as not to suck out too much at one time as oil will not compress in the engine cylinders. If you go slow all that will enter the intake manifod is oil mist If your home made line is long enough it may empty the PTU before any oil reaches the manifold (in this case no microscopic metal fragments will enter the manifold)
  8. That may be a casting number. I need the same part only for the left rear door on a 2014 Edge. Mine has a scar from a dog crate. Most of it rubbed out but I don't want to rub down to black plastic (is that silver paint on black plastic????) Ford told me you have to order the whole door panel and junk yards most likely only sell the whole panel. If you find out anything let me know

    I just added 19 gal to my 2014 AWD edge.....gauge said 1 mi to empty
  10. Got an email stating the above, what does this mean??
  11. title just about says it all. I checked Levittown ford prices and comes to about $1,700 I pamper this car likes a princess.I am sure aftermarket prices may be less and same with used. Should I demand Ford new oem parts or be happy with Allstate. Still waiting on their reply ...Any input would be helpful. 2014 edge sel, loaded, 38,000 mi perfect until this. Allstate customer since1970 no claims for many years

    Changed oil in PTU

    I had the oil changed in the ptu today using a BG machine. Was able to suck out approx. 14 oz each time, we did a drain and refill two times. Run the engine and wheels in between changes. The 2014 Edge has 20,700 miles on it. The oil color looked amber almost like new motor oil and felt like new motor oil. Filled up with Royal Purple 75-140. I think I will change it every 20,000 mi. No reason to change sooner or later.. This could be just as easily done with a cheap vac. pump. Fill plug easy to get to. Took about two min. for the machine to suck out the oil.
