    Ford Edge 2008 Engine Stalling and Rough Idle

    They replace your O2 sensor and trick your computer into thinking all is good when you have a gutted cat and can't program it out atm. Otherwise your sensors will say there is a problem and can either richen or lean out the air fuel mixture to try and make the postcat O2sensors happy. Some vehicles you can get away with it others will barely run.

    Disappointed with Livernois tuner for 2.0L...

    If the paper work is filled out right and the part is manufactured in US, Mexico or Europe there should be no duty unfortunately this gets messed up alot and good luck fighting it when it does happen. I also bet though the tuner module is made in china. I however never had to pay duty on my h&r springs, jlt catch can and ronin oil plug along with alot of camaro parts. Now you may be charged gst and pst, which looks to be the case here plus ups's brokerage fees.

    2010 Edge Limited running 22's and suspect hub issue

    Except he says there is no wobble or vibration. If it only does it with these wheels I'd have the tire dismounted and see if the tps sensor is broken off.

    They are the same hubs. Only Engine and cosmetic stuff changed from 2007 to 2014. Could be a sensor loose.

    Nothing special should be needed. Did you have them balanced? checked for being bent?

    Omg use a different shop now! You don't gut catalytic converters unless you have O2 sims or a way to tune them out. Some vehicles can end up running terrible after if you don't and no decent shop would have considered this a fix or diagnostic test. The problem could be still just a bad O2 sensor, which will indicate a catalytic converter is bad when it isn't, or still bad gas cap. Sorry but imo they should have never touched anything that they did unless you missed listing other diagnostic details.

    Your O2 sensors can be triggered if your exhaust gases aren't right like running too lean or too rich. A weak fuel pump/low fuel pressure can seem fine while driving and cause a stall at idle or coming to a stop. You have replaced a lot of stuff. At the cost of having the fuel pressure checked I would have insisted to have it checked well before the amount of money you spent, before changing the egr and tearing off the head for sure. You say they repaired the catalysts, did they replace the O2 sensors also? I don't see them listed. When you can't find the problem you have to stop assuming that untested things are fine. One other thing I just thought of, since I've heard of odder things, have you changed your fuel cap? They are vented and if they get plugged up they can cause some odd problems.

    Muffler Black is this normal?

    Yes there are weeping holes in the muffler, so unfortunately with how rich ford tuned these things we end up with black mufflers.

    Other models with this style 18" wheel?

    Ah ok. I could see them considered that then.

    Huh? They are factory ford rims and are to my knowledge an edge only item. A hubcap/wheel cover you would see a steel rim, not the brake caliper. Wheel skin could see maybe but sorry no those aren't.

    Lowering the ST

    I just lowered mine and my wife hates modded vehicles too but got to lower the edge. She doesn't notice any difference, although to me the odd thing is it actually seemed to be stiffer with the winters but ride better with the summers/factory rims and tires. Handling is definitely improved though.

    Terrible mpg

    Could be alot of things but start with the basics. How many miles and when were the spark plugs last done?

    Dealer says TSB 19-2208 is not for 2017s

    https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2019/MC-10162071-0001.pdf It's for your car but you are talking about rods? The tsb you referenced is all to do with coolant in the engine/mysterious low coolant problems. Unless you are exhibiting those problems it doesn't pertain to you currently.

    Poor trans shifting theory investigation

    I also considered the f-pace and macan, but having no local dealers for them and having a good ford dealer local we went with the ST. Not considered the same class in ways but we weighed pros and cons and am still happy....so far.

    That's unfortunate they are being like that. I actually don't like ford personally honestly, but we bought our first edge used from our local ford dealership because it fit our budget and needs. We bought our ST because of how they looked after problems we had with the first one and they've been consistent with this one. By far the best dealership I've dealt with otherwise I would have seriously considered other options.
