2016 Edge 2.0 Eco PTU Fluid Change Details

Recommended Posts

I just changed my PTU 75w140 fluid on my 2016 2.0 Eco  


Very straight forward process.  Among other obvious items(jack stands, rags, drain pan)  You'll need the following specific tools

Pliers/Channel locks,  7mm socket, 10mm socket, T30 and T50 Torx, 16oz of 75w140  - Ratchets and extensions to fit your sockets (1/4" or 3/8") drive.

Manual Oil pump 


1. Jack / Lift Vehicle

2. Remove enviro cover - Various T30's

3. To make the fill port more accessible, I chose to remove the Turbo tube which took 5 extra mins by removing 2 - 7mm screw Hose clamps, 1 - electrical connector 1 spring Clamp and 2 - 10mm nuts.

4. Breaking the Fill and Drain port loose is a TAD scary as they seem to be overly tight..  Constant steady pressure, and a fresh T50 torx without any wear is recommended.

5. My fluid was coming out of the fill port, so I temporarily put it back in, Removed the Drain plug, then removed fill plug to vent and drain quicker.

6. cleaned drain/fill plugs and once empty, replaced Drain plug

7. I Pumped 12 oz of new fluid back in, (At times I had to wait a bit for it to drain down inside, as the last 4 oz took a while as it wanted to come back out at me.

8. Replaced fill plug.

9. Optional, I chose to put the turbo tube back on (pushed it on the hoses but didn't retighten  clamps.  Started the vehicle while all 4 wheels off the ground, and ran it fwd reverse for a few minutes.

10. Removed turbo tube again, and drained PTU once more to FLUSH any more residual old fluid.

11. Refilled PTU with fresh fluid and reversed the removal process.

12. Next Oil change, I'm going to replace the fluid one more time, but I had ordered Amsoil SEVERE Gear 75w140 for $30 and will then change the fluid between 25-30K for the remaining time I own the vehicle.


See the following photos.. Some are just different views, but I marked them up with details to best show what's needed.



I hope this builds confidence for some that want to Do it yourself. 


GOOD Luck!!😎
