PTU drain plug drill and tap
Ford629 replied to karpcbk's topic in All Wheel Drive (AWD)Add me to the list of leaking PTUs (07 MKX). Incredible Ford’s been silent, I’m guessing a class action would be needed to get a response. Likely trading in the car in less than a year. Haven’t had any symptoms except black sludge on the PTU. Should I bother flushing the fluid? If chances are very low of a catastrophic failure I’d rather forego. Also should that stop the leak, or even with new oil will it continue leaking? It’s black sludge so I assume it’s splatter from the vent, not the seals.
Rotational squeaking / squealing sound at very low speeds on MKX
Ford629 posted a topic in 2007 Edge & MKXMy 2007 MKX recently developed a squeaking sound at very low speeds. It’s a ‘twrp twrp’ sound that appears to be in sync with the rotation of the tires. Doesn’t squeak when I apply the brake but if I slowly release and let it coast I hear it. Also when the car is off and parked, if I rock the car back and forth I can often hear it (only when I’ve parked the car at the squeaking point of the rotation), but only for a little bit - if I rock it ~30 mins later it’s gone. Also the sound doesn’t appear to occur when it’s very cold outside. Any ideas?
