  2. Documented the amount in the PTU. Plugs and tools required. Pretty easy job with the right tools and car ramps.
  3. 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.
  4. Sorry to add more to the PTU heap, just looking for some help in making an informed decision. I have a 13 Edge with 61K miles. I recently started noticing the smell best described as propane or natural gas, so of course I googled it. That led me to all the issues people are having with the PTU. The smell is the only symptom I am noticing right now, I am not noticing any leak spots on the floor, or any noise or performance issues. I have an appointment with a local independent shop that has a good reputation (the local Ford dealer does not). The plan is for them to check for any leaks and go from there. I am leaving next Friday for vacation, the drive is 800 miles each way, the weather will be hot. Since I am not seeing any other symptoms, if there is not a major leak would I likely be OK just having the old fluid pulled out and replaced with fresh if it doesn't have any chunks in it? What is the point where replacing the unit is necessary? Not sure what to do! Thanks
  5. 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

    New PTU seal

  7. 2015-2016 Edge/MKX And 2013-2016 Explorer/Taurus – Automatic Transmission Fluid Leaking From The PTU Temperature Sensor Some 2015-2016 Edge/MKX and 2013-2016 Explorer/Taurus vehicles may exhibit a condition where automatic transmission fluid (ATF) may appear to be leaking from the power transfer unit (PTU) temperature sensor. ATF in the area of the PTU temperature sensor may be the result of a leaking right hand (RH) intermediate shaft seal deflector. Replacement of the PTU temperature sensor will not resolve this condition. To correct the condition replace the RH intermediate shaft seal. Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 308-07.

    2007 Edge slipping

    First of all, I want to say thank you for the wealth of information that is on this forum. I've been reading through some topics and I plan to continue doing so until I find a resolution. The reason for this post is to get some advice specific to my problem, so here goes. We've had our edge for about a year now and It has been leaking from the PTU for some time. (not sure how long). It is bad enough that we have a small puddle in the spot where we park in our garage. When I saw the spot I did some preliminary research and knew about some of the PTU issues with these cars, but now I think I'm at a cross roads where I HAVE to do something. We've had issues with a loud clunking noise when going into reverse and at time while accelerating onto the interstate. Yesterday her car wouldn't crank because the battery terminal was loose. I'm sure that is purely coincidental, but after I came and tightened it up for her and got her headed home, the transmission started to slip. This is especially bad around 20-25MPH and is fairly consistent. I've read about some sensor issues that may cause issues, but I'm lost on where to start. I know financially I can't spend thousands on a fix for this thing especially if I can't pin point the problem. That's where I'm hoping this community will help point me in the right direction. If the PTU is bad could it be causing the trans to slip? Are there known internal issues with the transmission that might cause something like this? Please help!
  9. Has anyone successfully cleaned out a gunked up PTU? The girlfriends 2008 Edge Limited AWD has 122k miles on it, and last oil change (120k) I topped off the PTU, and it seems like the internals are gunked up with jellied, baked fluid. I know this usually leads to failure, but before it goes that far and gets expensive, I'd like to get it cleaned out. I know a lot of people say to keep exchanging fluids until they clean up, but I'm going to be there a lonnnng time before that ever happens. I used a sucker-gun and got about 1/3 of the total capacity out today and exchanged with fresh fluid, but I know that's a feeble attempt. I have the factory service manual, and I know it says nothing internally is servicable, but that's not my concern. I just want to take it out, install a drain plug, split the case and clean the internals, seal it back up and reinstall with new seals. I've done quite a bit of googling, I see lots of pictures of cooked PTU's taken apart showing how gunked the internals are, but never found any threads leading me to my answer. Also, would popping the cap off the vent and running a hose up into the engine bay solve some of the 'puking' issues? My fear is that it's already on its way out, as the car has started in on a random 'thud' (very seldom, at this point) while turning a corner at any speed, randomly, for no apparent reason. Seems like it's coming from the PTU/driveshaft area. I took a look at the roll restrictor mounted below the PTU and it looks weird, but I've never seen another one to compare. Best I can tell from looking at pictures online is that it looks goofy even when new, so I doubt that the mount could be causing the sound, as I would think it'd be more often than during a random turn at speed. Any insight would be awesome and greatly appreciated.

    PTU failure, Again!

    So is it me or are the PTU's on the 08 Edge extremely soft. I replaced mine a year ago and it internally grenaded again on me. Is anyone else have this issue? I'm debating even putting another one in it.
  13. Can someone provide more details on a "13M01" Field Service Action? Was at the dealer yesterday for service & noticed on one of the reports (OASIS, I think) among the outstanding Field Service Actions a "13M01", couldn't read the complete title, but was something like "Certain 2007 through 2012 model year Edge & MKX vehicles sold in some Middle East markets Extended Coverage on Power Transfer Unit". Would appreciate more details on this issue. Thanks.
  14. I have noticed numerous 2007 ford edge owners with the same issue I had recently, leaking transfer case PTU unit. I also noticed this same issue is happening with Lincoln's and Mazda's of same model type. I believe Mazda has offered owners some sort of compensation/recall/extended warranty for this manufactured defect. My question is what is Ford going to do about this very expensive repair that owners have to pay for that is a manufacturer defect? I did have it replaced for a pretty penny and now I hear a clanking noise when I turn that was not there before the repair. Does anyone know of any class actions on this?

    2013 Edge Sport JUNK!

    I have a 2013 ford edge sport with 30,500 miles. First problem, leak PTU, needed fully replaced at 18k miles. Second problem, every time shifted into park and shut off vehicle, warning light came on, beeped/blinked. Had to repeatedly restart my car, shift into gear, then back into park and shut off vehicle. Had to repeat this 3-4 times I go to park. Result, Ford replaced my entire shifter. Third problem and LAST, just last week PTU went out again, leaking like crazy and fully replaced. Just got my car back today. Car only has 30,500 miles. Going to trade off and never buy a ford again. Funny thing, was I originally bought a ford because I thought they were American made, tough, reliable cars. Definitely proved me wrong. I loved this car, put money into additional accessories and blacked it out. Unfortunately, I'm going to get rid of it now and buy a Toyota or a Honda. Just stinks that most cars nowadays are just junk all together. I would not recommend buying this vehicle.
  16. I don't know where to start. This 2013 Ford Edge AWD vehicle is only driven 5 miles or less a day commuting to and from the train station. A few months back, i began experiencing the reported natural gas smell, which through my research has led me to believe there's certainly an issue with the PTU. On top of this, beginning two weeks ago (and whether or not related to PTU i dont know) for the first 5 mins of driving after starting cold, the car clunked as if there was a metal or plastic item being dragged under the front of the car car which was accompanied by a heaviness in the steering wheel, as if something big and heavy was trapped in the front wheel wells. Felt like an anvil moving with the wheel rotation is the best way i can describe it. Unfortunately, both the sound and wheel 'feeling' completely disappears by the time id get to the service station to diagnose. Fast forward to the beginning of last week, the clunking had largely subsided on cold start, however I could recreate a different grinding/squeaking/metal on metal sound by turning wheel all the way to the right and beginning to reverse. Sound came from front wheel wells only while moving. Mechanic told me it was likely the transaxle. Told me it was safe to drive while waiting for service date - continued using car to commute. As of this past weekend, if i put the car in reverse and drive faster than 1-2 mph or turn the wheel while reversing, ithe car makes what sounds like a large bang under the car (followed by a whirring, and the transmission appears to slip out momentarily and the smell of burning oil or transmission fluid fills the cabin (cant tell which). Pressing the gas at this stage only moved the car slightly (under strain), though you can hear the engine working. To me, this seems to be a transmission problem, but i dont know enough about the PTU to properly diagnose. Is it possible a transaxle issue led to this transmission problem so quickly, or is the transmission the cause of the front axle sounds? I dont know enough about cars to know.. only that none of these issue should be occurring on a brand new car with under 10k miles. I have a scheduled repair with my local ford dealer on Dec 9th (first day a courtesy car was available), and want to properly explain the issue so its fully fixed. As it stands, i wont let me wife drive the car for safety reasons, and parking in NYC without having use of reverse gear is like eating without food. I could really use your advise. Thanks much in advance!

    Clanking noise when off

    Hi All, Long time lurker first time poster here. My 2011 Edge has around 87k miles on it and recently had to replace the PTU at 80K miles. I was quite unhappy with that and ever since this car has put me on "edge." 1) I hear a clanking noise after I drive the car and the car is turned off from the engine. It sort of like expanding and contracting noise of metal. I figured the engine is hot and its cooling, but its quite loud? Is it a cause for concern? 2) I started having a musty smell from the car, its been there, but I had the cabin filter and air filter replaced recently....not sure what that can be? I hope its not the PTU leaking again! thanks for your help!

    PTU seal 2009 Edge

    I have the dreaded PTU leak. I guess after researching others with this problem I should be thankful for getting 180,000kms on mine before it blew. Even my aftermarket warranty sold to me by the dealership when I bought it used has expired apparently, so now it's out of pocket. Was this ever a full recall? What's the usual damage for repair cost in Canada? I was quoted @ $800 by the service advisor this morning. There's a kick in the ass I don't need today.
  19. Hi all, Just crawled under the Edge for a spring oil change. First thing I noticed was the entire crossmember covered in something. Followed the trail of oil to the end of the PTU where the drive shaft comes from. You can see a few of the drips in the pic: This is from a 2012 with 9,885 miles on it. Seems kind of early to have an issue like this. I hope Ford has some sort of updated part. I've looked through the forum and it seems like the original Edges had this issue. Anyone had it on a 2012? You'd think they would have fixed it by then....I guess not.
