  1. 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.
