This is a kick off for the MACT Ford Edge/Lincoln MKX Facebook Live videos that I produce each Sunday afternoon on most weeks. The videos can be found live to the groups MACT FORD EDGE on the Facebook group of the same name or are later up loaded to the MACT Ford Edge youtube channel. They are also posted in HD format with some enhancements on the Facebook page and this forum. Hope you enjoy them. Here is what you missed last week.
Hi guy, I'm new this forum as a member, but have used it quite a bit over the last 6 months. Really great information and resources here. I wanted to post a maintenance schedule that I've gathered from this forum and others to put it in a nice and easy table. Long story short, I wanted to contribute to something that is printable. That being said, this is what I've gathered. 10k 20k 30k 40k 50k 60k 70k 80k 90k 100k 110k 120k 130k 140k 150k Engine Oil and Filter Change X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X Tire Rotation X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X Engine Air Filter Replace X X X X X Cabin Air Filter Replace X X X X X X X Power Transfer Unit (PTU) Fluid Change X X X X X X X Coolant Flush/Fill X X X Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) Flush/Fill X X X X X Rear Differential (RDU) Flush/Fill X X X Power Steering Fluid Suck/Refill X X X Brake Fluid Change X X X Replace accessory drive belts (if not replaced) X X Replace Platinum Spark Plugs X From this standpoint, and I know this can be a loaded question. Anything I should move around or add? Preventative Maintenance Schedule.pdf
I have a question about scheduled maintenance. This is what the manual says: It then goes on to say that under normal use (which qualifies for me) I can expect the prompt to appear between 12,000-16,000km. If they light doesn't come on, I shouldn't exceed 16,000km or 1 year. Now, we bought the Edge brand new last summer, and my wife took it in yesterday to take off winter tires and decided that since it was at 14,000km we'd have the scheduled maintenance done even though the light hadn't come on. So we took it to the Ford dealership at Thorncrest Sherway and they were really nice. However, they put a sticker on saying that we should have the oil changed again at 22,000km (that's after 8,000km of driving) or in October (after 6 months). So finally, the question: why are they saying we should have the oil changed so quickly? Is it the type of oil they used this time? Did we totally misunderstand the schedule and we shouldn't have waited for 14,000km to have it maintained?
This will demonstrate why you should change your transmission fluid sooner rather than later. Transmission fluid changes are cheap compared to the cost of a new transmission. This fluid flush was performed at a local shop I use monthly to perform oil changes, radiator fluid changes and oil changes.
