    2019 Edge Low Speed Surge/Buck

    I was feeling a slight surge/buck over the winter and then in February, it was full on, surging in every gear, any temp, all the time. Made me really hate the Edge. Got it into the dealer in April for the TSB and they weren't satisfied with it after the TSB reset. I believe the service writer said they then replaced the valve body. Surging is completely gone, drives like it should now.

    My theory on why lug nuts fail

    I guess it depends on the F150 wheels, but I thought most F150s used the large seat like the Edge lugnuts on the left. I picked up some Gorilla 61148CX to use when my factory Edge lugnut's caps start rusting and falling off. They are little taller and stick out past the wheel a bit more. http://www.gorilla-auto.com/lug-nuts-page-09 24 pack https://www.ebay.com/itm/334151861559?epid=1433548720&hash=item4dcd00c537:g:5zIAAOSwe31hRNk6 20 pack https://www.ebay.com/itm/181391077645?epid=622863125&hash=item2a3bc0310d:g:rJ0AAOSw77RiYbgl
  3. Oh, also got my new summer wheels and tires installed a week or two ago. The wheels are the 20" optional wheels (takeoffs from FB marketplace) and Nitto 421 tires.
  4. I purchased a new bar and it arrived yesterday, so I installed it. And it looked the same when I snugged up the bolts. 😑 So I started looking at the the "roof rack retainers" (spacer that inserts into the roof) and noticed they were different heights. I started filing on one to make it shorter to pull the bar closer to the roof and noticed it was actually growing. Doh! Discovered the spacers are adjustable. I then adjusted them all to the minimum height they collapse to and reinstalled the new bar. It's touching the roof in some places now, so it better be sealed up good. I wish they were contoured better to match the roof. I'd be interested to know how the set the height on those at the factory. They probably don't and just grab them from a container and slap them in... https://www.fairwayfordparts.net/oem-parts/ford-roof-rack-retainer-em2z58513a06c?c=Zz1ib2R5JnM9bHVnZ2FnZS1jYXJyaWVyJmw9NyZuPUFzc2VtYmxpZXMgUGFnZSZhPWZvcmQmbz1lZGdlJnk9MjAxOSZ0PXRpdGFuaXVtJmU9Mi0wbC1sNC1nYXM%3D Very dirty under the old bar. And what it started out looking like.
  5. I had some time after work and with some huge help from Haz, I didn’t tear anything up too bad 😂 I disassembled the b pillar and some of the a, and took out the grabbars. I was able to get my hand and a small ratchet passed the airbags. The bolts were tight, I gave them a bit more but it didn’t cinch it down any tighter. They take a 10mm socket and each bolt has a large rubber gasket under the bar. I think the roof bar was two pieces and hollow in the middle, water may be getting inside the hollow cavity and traveling down the alignment dowels net to the bolt holes. (there’s a good picture of the bottom in this eBay ad) Ebay ad Looks like I’ll be buying a pair of new bars cause if I have to drop the headliner, I’ll do em both. I’ll talk to the dealer but I doubt they be able to help. There was water spots and some dirt on the inside of the a pillar plastic, it’s traveling right on down the curtain airbags
  6. That's first on my list, seeing if the bolts are loose. I can't really push down and compress the seal, so if feels like something may be keeping it from seating correctly. It's a 2019, but I have almost 53,000 miles on it, so no bumper to bumper left. Holy moly! Thanks man. This is a huge help.
  7. Because I didn’t want a hole in the roof to eventually leak. I noticed the passenger side roof rack was sitting a little high when I bought my Edge. Twice now after a very hard rain, I’ve had water on my passenger floormat, so when I washed it this evening, I took the hose and started spraying around the windshield looking for water inside. It wasn’t until I sprayed the passenger roof bar that I got water inside. So I’m guessing I need to partially drop the headliner to get to the fasteners that hold the bar on? Anyone messed with these before? As usual, there’s not going to be a gasket sold separately... https://www.fairwayfordparts.net/v-2019-ford-edge--titanium--2-0l-l4-gas/body--luggage-carrier
  8. I wound up taking a vacation through the mountains a few months ago and discovered that it will hold a lower gear in normal driving mode (D) if you don't hit the accelerator. So you can downshift to engine brake but once you tap the accelerator, it will resume normal shift patterns. (Side note: the 4 cylinder isn't great at engine braking😂)

    Ford Edge Titanium back up lights options

    Turn off your lights when backing up, it changes the screen brightness to make things much more visible.

    There's an oval shaped recess with holes
  11. Is there any way in Forscan to keep a gear locked out in normal driving mode? I'm used to older Fords with the Overdrive lockout button and newer Fords that allow you to downshift and keep higher gears locked out. It's infuriating to use the paddle shifter to downshift and then 10 seconds later, it's back to lugging in the gear I just shifted from. I know there's sport mode, but with the 8 speeds, it's only in the lower gears for a second or two and I have to shift too quickly. I have a 2019 Edge Titanium with 2.0L AWD
