    Traction Control Off

  2. I changed the PTU fluid again to Redline shockproof, clean and clear drain, but feel better. Still clunks on tip in, but abused on a Procharged Nissan Z. Really good view in the rear view mirror. Sweet cars.

    Already April!

    My engine blew last night right after blowing the doors off a pesky McClaren. I decided to swap in an old Cadillac 500 I had sitting by the shed along with a 67 Olds Toronado TH400 to maintain the FWD. Handling and power is soooooo much improved. Happy April, stay safe and healthy.

    So I lifted it and checked out fluid. Mine luckily has a drain, first service! Fluid came out darker than new, but clear. A dab of sludge on the tip of drain plug. Good I suppose for 40k miles. I'm trying to decide if the amount of play I feel and hear is just going to be part of the car now, kinda like some of the Dodge Charger owners are experiencing. Having a reference in degrees or whatever of ok/not ok driveshaft or wheel rotation play would be helpful. It wasn't there 10k ago. Hard launches, wheel hop maybe added some clearance to the gears in the PTU. Time will tell.

    Go to MRT exhaust website, pick the type that fits your vehicle. Take the shipment to your favorite muffler shop or DIY

    SSM 46412 - PTU Idler Gear

    My year is in my profile next to posts, but I see it's not on everyone's. Anyway it's a 2015 so 2015-2018 will work. The bulletin states: AND BUILT ON OR BEFORE 30-JUN-2016. I'm locating a lot of salvage 2018 Edge/MKX with 20K and under miles. F2GZ-7251-C New best price is $682 with core. Used around $400. Not ready to pull the trigger yet, but I'll see how it progresses. FWIW I think my sound comes more from the PTU ring and pinion area. I had a few old GM rear ends that sounded similar. Good advice on the fluid changes. My 2002 Escape XLT has over160K on the problematic CD4E and I'm sure regular fluid changes and flushes are a big part of why I still have zero issues.

    SSM 46412 - PTU Idler Gear

    Anyone ever have experience with repairs or replacements or long term outcomes due to this? I'm chasing a clunk on accelerator tip in, pretty soft knock/clunk sound and getting more persistent. I can here it most of the time I go from reverse and into drive as well. I have an old set of chassis ears, you know the alligator clips with microphones on them, put on the headphones and click between locations. It's absolutely coming from the PTU. If it comes down to yank and replace it would seem like the '17, '18 versions would be best and probably have fewer miles. I'm not opposed to repairing either, just looking for the best route when it comes up.

    I scaled it at 4660 lbs. Yikes! My 240 Z V8 car is 2550!

    I like the black shiny 21 wheels better than the original dark gray.

    MRT Exhaust shows just enough. Mellow rumble.

    Just joined from Northern Colorado

    Thanks for the welcome. Edited above post, my dragy app moved to new phone, not everything came with it. For better or worse I have a drop in K&N, MRT axle back exhaust, & Livernois tune. I'm just using the 91 tunes since 93 doesn't exist nearby without blending. Locally we have SONOCO 100 octane pump unleaded but last I checked $8.00+/ gallon. No thanks. TT2.7 eats high mountain passes. I'll add image of my favorite dragstrip DA to show what I'm going against in the summer. Old cliche, air so thin the birds walk. Any other Colorado Edges @ Bandimere?
