    transmission fluid dip stick access 3.5L 2018

    Ok, that was "fun". By releasing the two screws and shoving the airbox over to the drivers side I was able to barely get my hand in and pull the dipstick out of the transmission. The car was cold, I expected not to see any fluid on the dipstick, instead it was just past the full mark. The fluid looked pink and smelled fine - no burn. Then releasing the clamp and wrestling some the airbox came out fine. Airbox wouldn't go back in. Couldn't get it down low enough and the screw holes wouldn't line up. Realized the back rubber grommet was stuck to the bottom of the airbox. Taking the grommet off the airbox and putting it back by the battery tray - then the airbox went back in. So confident I can do the drain and fill now. I'll measure and put back just what comes out.

    I can see it. Yes, it's in the same location as your video. There's no way to reach it, look at my picture. No way to reach your hand in there.

    Still trying to get the air box off. Took screws out and clamp off, then pulled hard but was afraid to break it. Do you really have to pull that hard?

    PTU Care

    Dealer declined to change PTU fluid. Did it myself. Mine has a drain plug so easier than some, but it's a tight reach to get to it. The 75W-140 container wasn't the standard quart oil container so the pump I bought wouldn't screw on. The 75W-140 container assumes you have the room to fit the end of the container into the fill hole, then raise the container and squeeze the new fluid in instead of using a pump. Dealer declined to change coolant, "good for 100k miles".
  7. 5/60? Is that 5 years 60,000 miles? Uhhhhhh OCD 2.5/30???? Not sure I've heard of that. Thanks
  8. 2018 3.5L AWD Manual calls for motorcraft mercon lv transmission fluid of course but wondering if Valvoline Maxlife Multi-vehicle full synthetic would be good? Or is it best not to mix and just keep using motorcraft because a drain/fill won't get all the fluid out and it's best not to mix? Thanks

    Looks good. Thanks omar302.
  10. Considering changing the transmission fluid on my 2018 3.5L edge but cannot reach the transmission dip stick. I've tried and tried to get to the transmission dip stick but cannot reach it under the large box that's to the left and feeds into the air cleaner. Is there a procedure for removing or shifting this box? The front of the car is at the top of the image.
  11. Interesting thanks for the info. Mine is the 3.5L engine - maybe the same PTU? This could explain it. Owners manual says, CAPACITIES AND SPECIFICATIONS - 3.5L Power Transfer Unit (PTU) fluid (All Wheel Drive) 17.9 fl oz (0.53 L) Really hoping PTU capacity was going up due to the extreme temperatures not down. Thanks.
  12. I see the vehicle was up on ramps when you did this. Was it level?
  13. My Edge seems to accelerate and coast a little better now since the ptu change.
  14. Let the old fluid sit overnight in the measuring cup - didn't see sludge or layering before taking it for recycling. Only sludge was on the fill plug at the top stuck to the magnet no metal shavings. Would think sludge would collect at the bottom by the drain plug but didn't see any sludge there or come out when I drained it. The plastic tube on the fill side would only go in about 1/2 inch. Felt like there was metal there stopping it.
