    How many Fords have you owned?

    Unfortunately no pics of the 50's cars, many on the "web" though.

    PTU drain plug drill and tap

    Others who have analyzed the Ford PTU issue say the real problem is the proximity of the PTU to high heat producing devices like the CAT and other parts. This heat "cooks" the oil and eventually turns it into a lump of carbon, destroying the bearings and then the gears. I had the PTU fluid changed at 35K miles in my 2018 Taurus, and it was timely according the technician who did the change. Interestingly I went to my dealer's service dept and asked for the service to be done and was discouraged from doing so, not necessary I was told.
