  1. Lots of Blue Loctite. I ended up using a milwalkee diamond tipped tile holesaw on a corded drill, with very very frequent dips in oil and steady mild pressure, too much knocks the diamonds off. I tried every type of bit and every one either dulled fast or broke off.
  2. Good luck, I broke my bolt doing mine, not even a 1" impact would move it. Best advice I've seen is a huge cheater bar, pipe on ratchet, on a good quality breaker bar and keep slowly moving it back and forth. It would suck to do on ramps, a lift is definitely best. The ones who seem to say it's easy are 2018 and younger models, on the 2019 and up they seem to have dipped almost the whole bolt in lock tight. ALWAYS USE JACK STANDS WITH A JACK!
  3. Edge is only rated for 3500lbs so they are covered. Just because you can doesn't mean you should, otherwise every speed related offense and death above 70 or 80mph would be the fault of the car manufacturer.
  4. It's rated as a class 2 hitch but has a class 3 receiver, so 2".

    confused new 2022 Edge ST owner

    Keep it easy the first 500, then giver(unless you are in an area that experiences true winter, then give it a few minutes to let the turbos warm up during colder months. Ford says it's a class 2 hitch but it has a class 3 receiver, this is normal. Unfortunately yes.
  6. Umm there are no mounts or nuts for the back. That quote seems crazy high for literally jack up car, possibly pull wheel off, unbolt 3 bolts, put in new shock and reverse process. If it was the fronts then it would make more sense. If you do B6's then do all 4 though since the dynamics of them are quite different but really doubt you'll regret it. I love mine and are way more durable and much better warranty.

    Heated Steering Wheel

    Did you get it with the Cold Weather Package(Code 55C)? If not you don't have it. See page 10. 2019 Edge Order Guide (ford.com)

    Misfire #1- new coils-plugs-pcm… need help

    The 2 wire coil packs will all have constant voltage at the same time, the pcm is the ground. When the coil pack loses ground that causes the coil to fire. Coil On Plug Ignition: The Wired Differences (siu.edu) Coil-on-plug (2-wire) - primary voltage (picoauto.com) "This principle starts with a magnetic field being produced, as the coil's earth circuit is completed by either the contacts or the amplifier providing the coil negative terminal with a path to earth. When this circuit is complete, a magnetic field is produced and builds until the coil becomes magnetically saturated. At the predetermined point of ignition, the coil's earth is removed and the magnetic field collapses. As the field inside the coil's 250 to 350 primary windings collapses, it induces a voltage of 150 to 350 volts." I would suggest a compression test and coolant exhaust gas test, unless the one with no voltage is for cylinder 1 then start there.

    Rough Idle and trouble codes P0018 and P0021

    Haha my 2019 ST has started throwing these codes a couple weeks ago and I'm off warranty. Oil pressure, low oil and old oil are good starting places. Next is swap the cam solenoids from bank 1 to 2 and vice versa. If it moves to bank 1, you know it's the solenoids. Also inspect the solenoids for any dirt, etc.(The stage I'm on) If it doesn't move and still throws aa code then from what I know it's time to replace the vvt cam sprocket.

    2008 Edge, Timing Off on left side

    Sorry for slow follow up. It should be all good, If the bolt did so happen to come undone turning it back, the bolt would have been under torqued. Spark plugs make no difference unless turning the crank. If your crank is set on it's timing mark you don't need to worry about the cylinders, make sure crank and cams are all lined up with their marks and you should be good to go.

    2008 Edge, Timing Off on left side

    There is a bolt in the center that attaches it to the cam, stick a socket(looks like it's likely a torx) in it and slowly turn it until it lines up. You can't turn it by hand because of the valve spring pressure.

    Hood Rattle on Highway

    Try adjusting the rubber bump stops under the hood. If this doesn't do it then the hood latch needs to be adjusted down a little.

    The Ultimate 2.7TT Aftermarket Parts Thread!

    Love what you've done but this is clearly a world issue not just forum. Everything I read I didn't take how you did and seems to be overly defensive, hell for some reason you guys blocked me on facebook despite me not ever saying anything to you, can see clearly people chatting and replying to you but I see nothing but their replies. People need to chill and find their sense of heehaw and quit taking things so serious. There will be critics no matter what you do, do what you do because you enjoy it, not for anything else, if people didn't do this we would have the insanely modified cars like civics, golfs and such. Hell most people around me and shops around here think I'm dumb for modifying my edge, but I do it anyways because I enjoy having a modified vehicle.

    Dorman Engine Oil Drain Plug

    All engines end up with it from the crank, cams, lifters, cylinder walls/sleeves, oil pump, etc. A lot of a motor is still ferrous. Oil doesn't eliminate wear but helps keep it to a minimum, the stuff collected are microparticles, as fine as dust. No since 120,000 miles with no engine work is very typical and it is more unusual if it is required now a days. 300k miles or more and planning on keeping vehicle long term possibly. Not saying an aftermarket plug or magnet is required, but it can't hurt and definitely keeps some particles that could speed up wear from going through the system.

    Dorman Engine Oil Drain Plug

    Metal oil pans typically have a magnet in the bottom of the oil pan for this purpose, same for transmissions. Ford also has one on the plugs for the rear differential, same as some aftermarket oil plugs, it does actually work even though you have doubts. As for remaining oil it's minimal, when jacked up in the front, and probably less than when the change is done at a place on a hoist or a pit with a standard plug. You can't post something without someone potentially having a counter point. 😁
