    2009 Edge hood stuck shut

    Have someone pull release handle under dash, while you're lifting front edge of the hood. Then liberally apply silicone spray lube to the latch before closing.

    ^^^^Ditto on changing+maintaining all fluids. Especially the PTU GearOil, assuming it's AWD? Consider installing a PTU Drain+Fill per the threads below, so it can be easily+frequently serviced. https://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/23396-ptu-drain-plug-drill-and-tap/?do=findComment&comment=219556 https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1665303-2007-2011-ford-edgeawd-ptu-mod-for-easy-oilchange.html Again welcome to the herd!

    My 2007 Edge

    Welcome to the herd! Looks like same SilverMetalic color as my 2008 EdgeAWDSEL. If yours is AWD, change the PTU GearOil as soon as possible; maybe even Drill+Tap the PTU & install a drain per this thread https://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/23396-ptu-drill-and-tap/?do=findComment&comment=219556 Again welcome!

    @Ramon You've got a problem with a 2011 EdgeSEL; you've posted this thread in the 2008 Edge forum section? Might get a better response by moving it to the 2011 Edge forum section.

    PTU fluid change issues..

    Best thing I've done for this Edge is to make PTU GearOil changes easy (now done with routine Engine Oil+Filter changes) by installing a PTU drain valve, fill hose, & vent hose up to an UnderHood Fill+Vent+FilterCan per these threads: https://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/23396-ptu-drain-plug-drill-and-tap/?do=findComment&comment=219556 https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1665303-2007-2011-ford-edgeawd-ptu-mod-for-easy-oilchange.html

    Walmart Supertech fluids

    Do simular thing here also, with both the 2001 ExSportTrac & 2008 EdgeAWD, handpump both Steering & Brake reservoirs down near empty & refresh with those respective new fluids, plus handpump ~1qt of fluid out of the Tranny DipStickTube & refresh that ATF, all along with the usual Engine Oil+Filter change, as part of the 6mth maintenance routine. Also have added doing the PTU GearOil drain+refresh every 6mths, since adding Fumoto DrainValve & OilCatchCan+Fill@FireWallUnderHood for that.

    PTU drain plug drill and tap

    Wanted to thank ManiN for his thread entry, specificly how to remove the PTU VentCap, & BuckNewby for his vids on how to install a PTU Drain. These inspired the PTU mods on my 2008 EdgeAWD; details at: https://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/23396-ptu-drill-and-tap/?do=findComment&comment=219556
  10. I'd confirm what OilChange Tech said; best put Edge on jack stands then crawl under & inspect yourself. PTU=TransferCase could be venting GearOil out top & that's spilling down over the case & rear output shaft? How many miles on the vehicle & has the PTU GearOil ever been changed? Does your PTU have just a 1/2" FillBung, or does it also have a smaller DrainBung? If only a 1/2"FillBung, then recommend Drilling+Tapping the PTU case bottom & installing a Drain. Details on how to do this at https://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/23396-ptu-drill-and-tap/?do=findComment&comment=219556

    PTU Oil change

    Posted this in AllWheelDrive\AWD section, but thought it's also appropriate in this thread on 2008 Ford Edge PTU issues. Thanks to Bucknewby plus several other videos & forum threads, while doing latest 3yr\33kMile Oil changes for the front PTU & rear Differential on my wifes 2008 Ford EdgeSELAWD, installed modifications noted+pictured below to ease servicing the PTU. ~ Drilled+Tapped PTU AluminumCase bottom; installed new 0i375\0m010ThreadDiameter DrainValve Fumoto#f124n. ~ Removed PTU top Vent JiggleCap+Rubber1Way (used 5/8"Socket+ScrewPick); reveals 3/8"HoseBarb; installed 3/8"ID Fuel\Oil Hose upto new OilCatchCan on FireWall. ~ Replaced PTU side FillPlug with 1/2"PipeThread~3/8"HoseBarbElbow; installed 3/8"ID Fuel\Oil Hose upto new OilCatchCan on FireWall. ~ Installed new OilCatchCan\Tank + VentFilter + 3/8"PipeThread~3/8"HoseBarbElbows2ea on FireWall upper lip, between FuseBox+Battery. The Filter+Strainer fittings inside the OilCatchCan are not required, thus were removed & not used. Now easy to drain Oil from PTU & refill at OilCatchCan top Plug: 1/2qt=16oz AmsOil#75w140.FullSyn + 2oz ATP#at205\ReSeal. Also wrapped ExhaustPipe under+near PTU with FiberGlassInsulation to help reduce it's operating temp. Considering trouble others have had & how black oil was, may do PTU Oil change with Engine Oil change every 6mths\5kMiles.
