PTU Vent removal and cleaning
Brian K posted a topic in All Wheel Drive (AWD)I think I read that the PTU vent can be removed by prying it out. Is that right? When I took my drain plug out I heard a sucking sound which indicates that the PTU is not venting properly I believe. I tried using a screwdriver to pry it out and it won't come out and I don't want to break it. Could someone please confirm that I am on the right track? I don't want to break it. Perhaps I'll go to Ford and see if they have one to replace it or perhaps the vent that goes up to the top of the engine bay. Thanks
Gasoline tank thump
Liptoss posted a topic in 3.5LI can hear you knocking, but you can't come in. OK, so I've an appointment with the dealership next Tuesday for AGAIN the driver door ajar warning sensor/switch. They fixed it once and it's back again. Drives me nuts... it can't be ignored! It'll ding-ding with every slow/stop that I come to. With the factory 60 k almost up in 10 days I'm having this done AND I'm going to have them look over the filler breather/vent tube for the petrol fill. Thunk-thunk after a fill up. I tried last fill up and notice I could fill a heck of a lot additional fuel and it never over flowed. I also notice that the fuel gauge registered higher on the console display. Usually I've been not pushing the "extra" petrol into the tank after the first click stop of the pump at the station. So, I'm wondering is there anyone out there that has had their Edge looked at for this issue? What exactly was found and the resolve that was implemented? Or Is this even an issue? Vehicle runs fine and fuel consumption inline with others at about ~9.5L per 100km's or 29~30 mpg highway and 12~13L or ~22 mpg in town. Is this something that I could look at for the vent /breather tube? I'm handy and not scared to take things on myself. I simply need to know where I might start looking for "this potential" problem with EVAP? I recall years ago being told by my mechanic buddy that when filling fuel, "Don't pump and pump to round up the cash value to even it as you risk overflow of raw fuel back to the EVAP canister with the charcoal and that can damage it and it is a costly part to replace." Any thoughts anyone? Thanks
