358,000 miles on original 3.5 duratec and 6F50 Transmission
macbwt posted a topic in 3.5LYes we did replace the water pump at 330,000 miles. Uses no oil and the 6F50 transmission fluid drains just about as red as when it went in every 30K miles. The engine as with all my duratecs run 10W30 synthetic off the shelf oils (you choose the brand) Oh and the power steering is the original power steering system which also gets changed every 30K miles. Even the AC system is all original. Plus it is the original brake booster.
macbwt posted a topic in Brakes, Chassis & SuspensionHello everyone, MAC T here and I am starting a new topic called double edged. The situation is as follows: I currently own and drive two Ford Edges. This topic will be used to follow two 2011 Ford Edge Limited as they both experience usage in opposition. The Blue Metallic 2011 (MOMOSHA Car) driven mostly city driving and virtually no highway vs the Cinnamon Metallic 2011 (work car) which will be driven 95 percent of the time on interstates in long haul driving situations. How will each one handle the different driving conditions? What repairs will result in the greatly different usage? Time will tell and it will be documented on this topic. Note: The documentation of most repairs will be on video.
2007 MKX with 220K miles - First Spark Plug Change
Carl Buyer posted a topic in 3.5LEmbarrassed but amazed, that I drove 220K miles on the original set of spark plugs. I have attached a picture of one of the 6, but they all looked identical. Maybe with electronic control systems this is expected, but the gap being over twice recommendation, and only about 10% of the electrode, let alone they were pointed (picture attached is of one of the 6, the other 5 looked identical). Gap on the original plugs was average 0.110. The vehicle ran okay, 21.4 mpg, I am hoping to see some improvement with the new plugs (also change the rear injectors, although they were replaced at 80K, only 140K on them. The front injectors have 220K). I have put around 500 miles on the truck since the change, and I definitely feel improved performance. Torque and Fillup (android apps) are showing some improvement on mpg, but will not pass judgement until at least I run through two full tanks. Interested in feedback, is this out of the ordinary, as I have heard that new systems with high quality plugs can go 100K?
