Lawyers have opened an investigation into Ford Edge and Flex vehicles over defects with the vehicle’s Power Transfer Units

Ford Motor

Ford-Logo

 

Hundreds of consumers have complained of Power Transfer Unit (PTU) fluid leaks that often result in the premature failure of the PTU and necessitate a costly replacement.

On All-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles, the PTU is responsible for transferring power from the output shaft of the transmission to the front wheels and also to the rear drive shaft. The PTU units contain a modest amount of fluid which is subject to overheating and degrading the valve seals.

If you have a Ford Flex or Edge and experienced a problem with the PTU on that vehicle we would like to hear from you. You may contact us privately using the contact attorney privately box below and/or share your story publicly using the submit button.

I have a 2014 Ford Focus and my vehicle has been in the shop 17 times. Ihave had computer after computer updates, 2 internal clutch and an oil leak on the right side of my transmission that had to be fixed. I have had atleast 5 different Customer Service Managers at Ford in which have all been very rude and unprofessional. the responce that I get from them is that they will give me the number to the BBB and I can file a complaint. My focus is STILL not fixed and I am still having the transmission issues and my car shutters and shifts very hard. I have asked Ford several times to do a buy back on my vehicle and I they have denied me every times. I do feel like my 2014 Ford Focus is a LEMON and I would like to get out of the car.

Ptu needed to be replaced on my Ford Flex 2010 with ~95,000 miles. The ~ cost was about $2,000! Now after the repairs my car is having transmission problems. Would love to talk to someone about this problem. I would expect a transmission to last a lot longer then this. I never got any notifications about ford having ptu issues!

I need to replace the PTU on my 2008 Lincoln MKZ- Dealer estimate to repair is $1700. Is this an ongoing issue? What has Lincoln done to help those affected after the warranty runs out?
Was there a recall? What action can a consumer take?

I have a 2007 Lincoln MKX and have had so much trouble with this! First heard noise so changed real hub but still heard noise after repair, then two weeks later the driveshaft broke that cost me 600$ about a month later wife was driving 70 on highway and said it felt like she slammed the brakes but didn't! Had it taken to the shop and was told ptu/transfer case exploded and split in two which dropped the new driveshaft and broke it and cracked went all the way around and hit the transmission!! So, since I still owe money on this pos and it's not worth what I owe, I'm stuck!
Repair bill... 3700$ plus another 600$-900$ for yet another driveshaft!
Somebody owes me something!
Sincerely, unsatisfied customer ?

I recently purchased a used 2007 Edge with 112k miles. It had a minor vibration and it was found to have a bad right front CV joint. that eliminated a majority of the vibration. I have since been hearing a squeaking noise on the first acceleration of the day. I suspected a carrier bearing, but after reading these issues here I see it may be a bigger issue. In the service history report, it shows a seal replacement service. I will be Giving my car an inspection of the areas listed by the previous comments. I want to catch it early to minimize extensiveness.

I have a 2008 Ford Edge with 133,000 on it. Recently been experiencing instances where the car seems to shift 'hard', you can feel almost a lurch when excelerating. Thought that there was an issue with the transmission, but over the past few days have noticed a dark brown fluid under the car in the driveway. The fluid appears to be coming from the PTU but it's a little hard to actually tell. We've done some research and the fluid seems to be consistent with other Ford driver's that have experienced this issue in the past. Haven't had this looked at my a mechanic yet, but wanted to chime in just in case this was still a live thread!

2007 Ford Edge. Burnt gas fumes & car is making whirring noise. Turned out to be bad PTU like others reported. $1900 to replace the PTU. Spoke to ford corporate customer care and they informed that there is no open recall for this issue and I have to pay out of pocket. Dealer charged $1900 for parts and labor. When asked about why there is no recall even though this issue is reported by many owners all over the internet, response -- please keep your bills and receipts so incase a recall is issued in future company might reimburse the charges.

2007 AWD Ford Edge. Replaced the entire transmission at 150k (4k to replace with a Ford OEM) and now the PTU is starting to fail. (under 2000 miles after replacing the transmission) I want to sell this car but I've been quoted $1800 to replace the PTU. This really needs to be a recall by Ford. It's unfortunate that a class action has to occur.


Steve W. said

I received a quote today of $2300.00 to replace the PTU because of an oil leak on my 2009 Ford Flex. The mechanic then asked me to step outside to show me a small pile of 6 or 7 PTU's from AWD Flex' and Edges that have been replaced. This should be Ford recall.


Mike R. said

My 2014 Ford Edge with 30,000 miles had the PTU replaced today. Luckily, it was under warranty, but at 30,000 miles, the prevalence of this issue is concerning. I fear that at 60,000 miles, another replacement will need to be made at my expense.

I started noticing black drops on the garage floor under my 2008 AWD Ford Edge with 68,000 miles about 2 weeks ago. Brought it to my mechanic for an oil change yesterday and asked him to look for the source of the leak. He said it wasn't a motor oil leak, but instead the PTU is leaking. Looked under the vehicle today and there's black fluid all over the undercarriage. Have an appointment tomorrow morning at the service department of the Ford dealer where I bought the car. We'll see what they say. Not happy at all to read about all the problems others are having with the Edge PTU.

I bought it used with 73,000 miles on it and sure enough 15,000 miles later it left my fiance and my 5 month old daughter and I stranded on the side of the road in 110 degree arizona heat. First I noticed the car was running slightly rough at idile but it wasnt enough to be concerned about. Upon driving 2 miles down the road the navigation display screen shut off and then immediatly after the sensor notifications were going haywire. The odometer screen read CHECK BRAKING SYSTEM and kept flashing between that and LOW TIRE PRESSURE. The motor started to run extremely rough and I pulled off to the side of the road. The rpm and mph needles went dead as well. After I stopped thats when I noticed smoke comming from under the hood. Fearing the worst I immediately shut off the vehichle and opened the hood. Upon inspection I noticed the smoke was pouring from the alternator. I tried to start the vehicle again for further inspection but it was COMPLETELY dead. So therefore we caught a ride home and had it towed to a dealership. Before this all happened the car started having more frequent transmission problems including: slamming into reverse, loss of torque while driving, and of course hard downshift gear transitions. Also ive had to replace 2 rear bulb light connectors because BOTH went out at the same time. Of course upon inspection they seemed to be BADLY melted and deformed. One week later the passenger rear tail light went out AGAIN. Someone needs to do something about these issues immidiately. This vehicle model is EXTREMELY unsafe.

2010 Flex Ecoboost motor blown. 100k on my Flex. Driving normally and it just lost power and started running rough. Now my mechanic Saud motor is shot. Cylinders 3 and 5. He doesn't know how or why. But after reading post seems ford has a major issue with the way they built these motors.

I'm not on to usually complain. I know parts do fail and things aren't always perfect but come on Ford! My wife and I have a 2015 edge with 11,000 miles, it's now at the shop for the second time in 1,000 miles to get ptu seals replaced. maybe this time the problem will be fixed.... Im doubt full. Service department acts as if it's no big deal "it's under warranty" they say. well what about at 61,000 miles it's no longer under warranty then. The track record I now have shows by then Ford will have to replace the seals 50 times? Shame on Ford for not figuring out a solution to an on going problem

Purchased a w013 ford edge in Jan of 2015. In March our PTU unit failed and had to repair cost g over 2100.00!
Warranty expired already when this hapened. Not happy that ford is allowing the sales of defective parts to continue.

I took my 2007 Ford Edge to be checked out May 17th 2016 it was making a lot of noises and swaying.so The dealer said that it had a bad PTU left front axle rare right hub right front center beam bearing front sway bars and Link all this was over $3000.00 in repairs. So I told him I don't have $3,000 right now what could I get fix to keep the car on the road until I get the rest of the money repairs? He said you need to get your PTU and the left front axle done right away so I said okay so on the 20th Friday I was at Wawa to get a cup of coffee before I go into work. Got my coffee put my keys in the ignition but battery lights went on and it slowly died I called Triple A they came and told me this might be a bad starter but they'll take me to work because I work 11 to 7 at night thank God I was at Wawa I could have been stranded anywhere. morning my co-workers took me back to my vehicle I went to Pep Boys which was right down the road and they had took my vehicle to the shop and said that it was a bad belt the top on the alternator that kills my battery so I had to buy a belt and a new battery. at that moment I was very annoyed with the dealership cause I had taking the car in to be checked out and the battery could have been saved if they would have just told me I had a bad belt on my alternator I could have been anywhere and the car stopped running I didn't have to be at Wawa. so I took my car back to the dealership on May 31st to get the PTU done and the axle as recommended by the the service technician in parts. on May 31st the next morning I was called by the dealership and told that my vehicle is ready to be picked up and it's running like new and I said to him I said that was fast he said I would technician worked on it all night I said okay I said can you wait until Friday he said sure. battery light come on and it just wouldn't start so I called Triple-A and the guy said it seems like you have a bad start starter or something like that so the next morning I came back to my vehicle and it was taken to Pep Boys and the guy told me that the belt on the alternator had talked and that it killed my battery so I had to buy a new battery and a belt for the alternator so during that time I took my vehicle to the dealership to get fixed on May 31st 2016 and called me the next day and say Priscilla your vehicle is all fixing his driving just like me I said that was fast he said oh yeah my technician worked on it all night I said okay can you wait until Friday and I'll come and pick it up so for the front axle to be done and the PTU was 2214.00 he gave me a discount of $100 it was going to be originally 2315.00 approximately so I went and pick up my vehicle and then when I was driving up the road the car was making the same noise doing the same thing and everything I brought it back to the dealer straight away and I told him I need a technician I Can't Describe what's going on is the same problem that I had when I brought it in I need a technician or mechanic to go with me and we can drive in the car and he can tell you what's going on so they had a technician drive with me in the vehicle and the vehicle start that grinding noise in the rough like them the wheel the front wheel was skipping it was a rough drive so I went back to the dealer and a mechanic was telling him what it seems like there a passenger side Hub and other sound I don't know what it is but it might be electrical the time David said it says something misfiring and he said yeah it could be but we have to check it out to be for sure so he told me bring it back on Monday and we can check it out and see what's going on so I said okay I'll try to bring it back Monday so I'm on my way back to my jobs. so Saturday morning I couldn't stand it no more coming from one of my clients I took it to a mechanic and he was able to fix most of the work in less than three hours but the other part which was the center being the bearing bar or whatever it's called that goes into the PTU he had to order it and it was the item that was still making a grinding noise and then he asked me how come they put a bad sensor being into a brand new PTU I said I don't know but that my car is running much better would just the sway bar links and right sway links he added and they were going to say is electrical problem maybe or a hub wrong it was going to get me in there and just yank my chain some more.

You should also look into the problem that has been widely reported with Edge owners for the TSS and OSS sensors. Not safe when you're driving down the freeway at 70 mph and the speedometer, odometer and computer turns off and you can't accelerate. If Ford doesn't recall this, someone is going to get seriously injured! My vehicle is going to the shop for the second time in a week -- just paid over $1,000 to get these sensors replaced. Shame on Ford.

I have a 2008 Ford Edge bought new at dealership and they have done all work on transmission issues. I have experienced transmission issues and leaks starting in 2010. Since then I have replaced the transmission - replaced the PTU twice and potentially am facing replacement now with a 5th transmission seal leak fix. Two of the five current leaks replaced on the transmission were from TSB's from FORD. The other three were leaks that were reoccuring.The Tourque Converter was fixed under the warranty of the last transmission/PTU replacement and the warranty expired in March 2016. The leak was brough into the shop on Jan. 2016. Each time my transmission/PTU and most recently Tourque Converter was replaced 1/2016 a previously fixed a leak occured within 3 months of the transmission being worked on. This last one currently has put me in on April of 2016 wth another leak. They now tell me that my warranty on the transmission is up by 1 month and won't cover it. This is the 5th leak in transmission seals. The PTU has been repaired twice and maybe potentially now a third is needed as they tell me that if it's a leak it's $1,500 and if a new PTU $2,500. They don't know until they have it all apart. The dealership told me to call Corporate and I've called corporate 3 times and they are not any help. "Your warranty is expired - we can't do anything". Three staff at the dealership have advised me to get rid of the car. The car is paid off and I'm not in a place to do this.

Sluggish take off from a stop. The sound of coffee can full of nuts and bolts at 10 to 20 mph. Followed by humming sound from under carriage.

After reading the forum and complaints I am sure that my PTU on my 2011 Ford Edge Sport AWD at 84,000 miles has failed and one of this days it will stall me on the side of the road. I would like to help make ford fix this flaw.

2007 Ford Edge- at a cruising speed the transmission feels as though its slipping, chugging on inclines and when the AC is on. No puddles, yet- but I have to step on the gas to get away from the chugging- So I have to drive faster than usual.

Took my 2013 Ford Edge SEL in for annual inspection and an oil change (vehicle has approximately 58K miles) and was told that when they were inspecting the vehicle, the found the PTU was "still leaking". I had never been made aware of this, and the mechanic even admitted he had my Edge confused with another one in the shop previously. I was then told that my vehicle did in fact have a leaking PTU and it would have to be replaced, but that it may not be covered under warranty if all four of my tires didn't have the same circumference. After anxiously waiting for the mechanic to complete a test drive and the measurements, I was told in fact that two of my tires were one circumference and the other two were another measurement. They are replacing it but I have been told that they are blaming the difference in the tire circumference on the malfunction. The service writer told me there could be no more than 1/4 inch, but our tires measured 1/2 inch different. The issue at hand now becomes having to possibly replace the tires so as to not have this happen again (and of course the dealer has all four tires in stock at a low, low price)--keep in mind this is the second set of tires--how is it that the original tires maintained the same circumference for the first two years of ownership?? Could it be that the PTU was bad all along and that's what caused two sets of tires to wear faster than normal?? In addition, we have heard a grinding noise at acceleration for the last few months.

Dropped of my 2011 Edge last week. Just hearing back from the dealer and it is in fact my PTU. Also a few other things with the wiring. I've only had this vehicle for 6 months and only 98,000 on it. Waiting to hear if my "extended warranty" covers it.

Bought a 2012 Ford Edge from Two Rivers Ford in Mt. Juliet, Tn. that was a used certified car with about 15 thousand miles. Had the oil changed three times but on the third time the mechanic told me I had a leaking axle seal and he recommended I take it to a dealer and get repaired. Car now has 21 thousand miles and this is very disappointing as the car is like new was going to be my last vehicle as I am 76 years old. Took it to a dealer Miracle Ford in Gallatin, Tn. and they inspected and confirmed I need new axle seals. Parts have been on order for a week and I have heard nothing from them. I plan on taking a vacation next month and will need to have this issue taken care of before then

Same problem as everyone else is having. We had the trans rebuilt and have had leaks since. First the mechanic put seals in wrong until he got a diagram from ford. Has no trans leak since. But the PTU has been leaking since. Ford advises to replace at around 2 grand. Also, they said it looked like someone else tried to work on it. Silicon and evidence of bolt wear etc. Car is great but at wits end here. $3,300 for trans and now $2,000 for PTU? Ford needs to step up to the plate on the PTU issue.

Took my 2011 Edge Sport in because the Low Oil pressure light came on. They fixed that issue but they also said that I have a small leak in the back which is the PTU and it will cost me $1600 to fix. Told them I would do it towards the end of the month. But I wanted to see if this was a common problem. Apparently it is! Not a happy owner right now. A $50,000 car shouldn't have issues like this and if they are this common there should definitely be a recall.

I agree 100% with the other person who stated an investigation needs to be kicked off for the sensor problems with the 2008 Ford Edge. These are by far an even more dangerous scenario than the PTO/PTU failures. The sensors issues are extremely dangerous when they occur in normal, every day living scenarios. I believe that someone is going to killed someday because of the sensors issues failures. TALK ABOUT A SAFETY CONCERN! They are expensive to fix, too. These issues and the lack of proper failure warning are design flaws, plain and simple. It is alarming that Ford Corporate's current choice is to turn a blind-eye and death-ear to these major product design and test failures. Very disappointing.

Have an 08 Lincoln MKX, with 80k mileage. Just had a traumatic electrical failure...the gauges quit, then oddly the stereo/nav/bluetooth displayed "contact dealer" and the speakers blared static, while the dashboard light for airbag error, and the console mounted passenger airbag off error warning lights started turning on, in random non-sequential order, while the doors were locking and unlocking, followed by CHECK TIRE PRESSURE, and CHECK BRAKE SYSTEM, on the message center. The exterior lighting quit working including brake lights, tail lights, and turn signals. I restarted a half a dozen times after I got it off the road. Many times the charging system warning lamp illuminated on restart, while every electronic on the car said to contact dealer for the failure, and the vehicle sounded funny and drove oddly when I would try to move it - Now I find out it is the Turbine Output Shaft Speed Sensors.

Seriously this is a golden class action. Who the hell designs a car that can cause such catastrophic electrical failure because the transmission is straining?

2009 Ford Flex - bought from dealer and dealer maintained except for tires. Gross burning smells off and on then suddenly black "oil" on driveway. I took the car for tires and tire shop told me they thought my PTU was cracked due to leaking. Flex had 89,800. This was in January of 2016. I took the car to Ford Service who told me my PTU needed to be replaced at 2500-3,000.00!! I have been driving the car since without replacement. I called around because it sounded like BS. A transmission shop used in the past said to drive it until it was grinding and you couldn't stand the noise. They said they have replaced at least 20 PTUs in the Flex and Edge. They will charge $1,500.00. And so I have been driving it since Jan. 2016. It's starting to smell again and the car seems a bit wobbly (could be the roads?) but otherwise, it's been ok. We are scheduled to replace PTU first week in August though.

2013 Ford Edge AWD with 72,000 miles. Last week family member had emergency bypass surgery 600 miles away. Drove there and back, 8 hours each way, returning two days ago. Yesterday I thought I smelled burning oil like dripping oil on exhaust. Assumed it was my wife's car as it is older and she returned from the same trip. This morning wife sends me a message showing fluid on the floor of the garage after I drove to work. Checked and appears fluid is coming from the top of the PTU although no fluid on the ground where I park my car at work. Wondering if all the fluid is gone or only some leaking from vent. Pisses me off that I thought about renting a car before the trip rather than driving my car. Asswipes at Ford in Orlando, FL, are not even calling me back about an appointment after leaving 2 messages with the service manager. Left the car in place until I can figure out what to do about the fluid. This is now the second item with this car that Ford acts like nothing is wrong and does not issue a recall. The first was a drivers side door lock switch failure 7 months ago. Told by Ford that it was not on a recall therefore I needed to pay to have it fixed. Did the repair myself. I worked for GM for years and after driving an Edge for nearly a year as a rental thought I would try a Ford. What really aggravates me is when I was considering purchasing the car I really did not want AWD but wanted the color. Seems I should have listened to my gut. Ford, if you are reading this you suck! Shame on you for having this issue for what appears to be years and continuing to use this design. As far as I am concerned a car with only 73K should not have this issue.

The Ford AWD system is sensitive to differences in tire sizes; including tire wear. Most of the PTU failures may be attributed to this. A difference of 1/32 between front and rear may cause the failure. The best suggestion is to replace all four tires at the same time; do not use the "doughnut" spare. Sell the car to your brother-in-law!

My 2008 Edge had the same problem. It was at around 75,000 miles the first time and it was covered under the extended warranty. It is now at 144,000 and it has started leaking again. I find it highly unacceptable these are only built to last 70 some thousand miles.

I have a 2013 Ford Edge AWD (in Canada) & the PTU failed at 103000KM. Estimated cost of repair was $2000. I was fortunate that I had Extended Warranty and only had to pay $100. When I question dFord Customer Service advised that the PTU IS DESIGNED TO NEVER NEED SERVICE UNLESS OPERATED IN EXTREME HEAT/SANDY CONDITIONS. There is no drain plug to drain and replace the fluid which is the same fluid that is in the rear differential. One dealer told me that this issue affects their SUV's with AWD. My wife has a 2015 Escape and was told that Ford has a lifetime warranty on the Escape PTU's. I plan on following up on this. The $100 is not going to break me but the principal of the lack of concern/response from Ford tricks me off.

2007 Ford Edge is having the same issues. No leaking yet, but jerking into gear. My other problem is that the air conditioning has had one issue after the other. Started leaking into the blower and then onto the floor,both passenger and drivers side. Had to replace the blower motor because wherever it is leaking from destroyed it. Had the problem fixed, so I thought and a couple a month later, it has begun leaking again. It is very disappointing and frustrating with this heatwave got no on and trying to me my 10 month old grandson from melting in the back seat. If anyone has any solutions or more info on why this is happening and what I can do ...please please let me know. I am continuing to have to put money into this and now I am worried about the PTU problem I keep reading about. I have heard that it is not a recall matter, but it seems to me THAT all these same problems going on , it should be a recall.

I will never buy another Ford again, I'm sure the other Mfgs are the same, but they just leave a very bad taste in my mouth, you pay $40K for a car and they have flaws that they don't step up and fix.

I bought a 2013 AWD Ford Edge last year used. I had a warranty on the power train up until 60k miles. A few months after I bought my car it started "clunking" when I would turn and it was whining when I was driving fast, etc. Took my Edge to a Ford dealership to be told that they didn't know what was wrong with it and basically they could not help me. Problem kept getting worse and a month ago I took it to another licensed mechanic. He told me that I just needed "a little fluid" in my "clutch reservoir" and that if the whining didn't bother me I shouldn't worry about it. Uhm, obviously it did bother me if I was trying to get the problem fixed. Anyways, two weeks ago my PTU went out, all of my fluid was drained and it completely destroyed parts in my car. The local Ford dealership told me they would try and file it under a "Good Samaritan" Warranty that Ford offers considering my mileage as of the day it (officially) tore up was 60,500... Ford denied me because, among other reasons, I had not owned a previous Ford vehicle. I am a 20 year old nursing student and I am getting married in September-- I do not have the time, money, or patience to deal with the ignorance and lack of responsibility I have been shown over this issue. I wrote a check yesterday for $1,716.92 to replace a PTU that should have (never torn up in the first place) been covered under warranty a YEAR ago when Ford told me they did not know what was wrong with my car. I am disgusted.

We have a 2008 Ford edge started smelling a burning smell and seeing smoke. Thought the vehicle was on fire so we pulled over and checked. There was no fire, just a massive amount of smoke coming from the engine compartment and underneath. We checked with our mechanic and the seal is bad in the ptu case. It's a $2100.00 fix. This is ridiculous considering the amount of complaints about this same problem.

Almost caused accidents at least 3 times called Ford and was told theres no recall cause it's not a safety issue. I replaced the output speed sensor now the car only goes in reverse. Meaning in reverse, drive, & low gear they all go backward (reverse) took transmission a part again and found that the connection to another sensor wires had just broke off clip. Not even sure if this is the problem or not and of course Ford takes no responsibility for any inconvenience this has caused or take into consideration the danger this puts my family in

2011 Ford Edge SEL AWD. The vehicle is leaking fluid under the transmission and PTU transfer case. This past week on Monday 8/8/16 I noticed a loud whining noise upon accelerating from a stop. The noise derived from the front end of the car. I also noticed a slight metal rattle noise when slowing to a stop. I took the car to a mechanic and found that the transfer case is failing. After researching this issue, I am finding that the PTU failure is VERY common in a high volume of Ford AWD vehicles. Ford is telling me I will need to pay $1800+ to replace the unit, and private mechanics are recommending I install a new transmission and PTU unit altogether as the faulty unit may have caused damage to the transmission as well. Very frustrating.

Just had my 2011 Ford Flex AWS with Ecoboost (116000+ miles) in the shop for the PTU three weeks ago. It took them over week and 1600 dollars. I was driving last night 345 miles from home when it started feeling like I was riding on the bumps on the side of the freeway so I moved over but it continued. As I went to pull of to the right shoulder the check engine light started flashing. I stopped turned it off and the same smell as before I got the PTU replaced was back and strong. I looked under the hood it smelt too. After sitting for a few minutes the smell was gone but my car would not start. I had it towed to the closest dealership. I waiting for Monday to see what they say. I did not mention I just had the PTU replaced in fear they would say it was not it. So monday when they call me if they say that is the problem I will be going to the dealership asking that it gets repaired, brought to me at my home, the cost of the hotel I had to stay in, and a rent a car. I will keep everyone posted on what they say. I do think there should be a class action suite against ford.

My 2011 Ford Edge at 96,000miles started making a Chirping noise. I took it to the local Ford Dealership and they determined that it was the Front Shocks. They replaced them at a cost of $500 p/l. 1 week later I started getting a grinding noise. I continued driving the car until, as I was pulling out from a Light, the vehicle shuttered. Took it back to the same Dealer service center to find out that the PTU has gone bad. Replacement costs $1300 p/l.
They won't admit it, but I believe my shocks weren't bad and that this was the transfer case all along.

Ford needs to do something about all theses problems with transfer case and transmission, before someone gets hurt or killed from there poor design. I have 4 kids and bought the flex to have dependable vehicle, and can't afford all these repair costs, and am scared to take on a long trip. Someone out there please help. I have already put 1500 into it and am gonna have to put another 2000 to get it up to par and still don't know how long it will last.

Put leaking on 2012 ford edge only 64000 miles. Found out it had been replaced before I bought it to but was not on the carfax and they used Used parts and they want to charge me to fix it. I consider that falsifying documents.

I am having an issue with a bad PTU on my 2008 ford Edge AWD. It currently has 86000 mile on it. I purchased it new in August 2008. I had it inspected at Meineke on 9/10/2016 and the mechanic showed me that the unit was leaking badly. He stated that almost every Edge that has come into his shop has had the same problem with the PTU. He stated that the cars either have a new PTU or its leaking and needs repair. I was quoted a price of $1665.00 to replace the unit since he claimed that metal filings were in the leaking oil. I am so disappointed to find on the internet that so many people are having the same problem with this car and Ford is not willing to help at all.

3 months ago, when power train warranty was still in effect, engine light was diagnosed as a gas tank sensor. In reality it was the PTU which went out and cost 1600 dollars to replace. Once replaced engine light ceased to be on or a problem. A proper diagnoses the first time would have been under warranty!

Since I had an issue with an earlier model AWD Ford Vehicle, I requested that my dealership check the fluid level in my 2010 Ford Edge AWD PTU at 55,000 mi. The dealership said it wasn't necessary. I again requested that it be checked at 58,000 mi. with the same response. When the PTU failed at 60,000 mi I was extremely upset and contacted Ford. They replaced it for $100. I was very fortunate to have the experience that I did considering all the horror stories that I have read. I now regularly change the oil in my PTU every 5000 mi myself and had no further issues. 110,000 miles and going strong.

I have a 2011 Mercury Milan. The PTU failed, leaked and began to make noises around 52000. I received a new PTU since the car was under warranty. The same failure, leaking and noise is happening again at 116000 miles. None of my local dealers want to help and Ford Customer service isn't much help either. The sad thing is all the service advisors, customer service reps and even the techs realize the issue with the PTU's and there is nothing they can do to help.

Two days ago, I brought my 2008 Ford Edge Limited AWD in for the gas tank recall. During an inspection of my car for this recall it was discovered by the technician that the PTU was leaking. I am currently having the car inspected by my mechanic for the leak. But from what I am reading it is a very common problem with these cars. So it looks like a repair is going to be in order. NOT looking forward to this bill since I just had to replace the water pump which is a major job!!!

I have a 2014 Ford Flex that has been babied and serviced regularly. On 8/2/16, I took it in for it's regular service at 62,993 miles. The dealer found a "small leak" in the PTU. I told them I would gladly pay them to fix the leak that day because my family (myself, my husband & 3 young daughters) was going on a long trip and I didn't want anything to go wrong. The dealer assured me, several times, that the leak was tiny and we could fix it at the next service. On 9/2/2016 I was driving 80mph down the highway and my car started stuttering and then shut down completely. I heard the rear drive line break. Got out, looked under my car to find flames, caused from PTU fluid leaking onto the exhaust. Luckily no one was hurt. I have been without a car for 2 weeks and now it sounds like I am looking at $7500 worth of damages. I am FURIOUS and Ford won't do anything since I am out of my powertrain warranty. This car is 2 years old & has been kept immaculate the whole time. Please help me fight Ford on this, I am at a loss.

I purchased a 2013 Ford Edge from a Ford dealer in May. 2016. . I did buy an extended warranty thank goodness! One month ago it started smelling a bit- like something was burning. Got worse a few weeks ago. Took it in and it was the PTU. They replaced the whole thing. Without our warranty we purchased, instead of paying a $100 deductible, it would have cost us over $1700.00!!!
Is it just the factory installed PTUs that need to be replaced? Hopefully the new one will last. These should be recalled and everyone reimbursed.

Now My 2009 ford flex started to make a noise and it sounded like a tire. I took it to Dunn tire on 6/4/16 and he check and said tires were good that the noise was in the front differential I would need to take it to the manufacturer. I called ford and set an appointment. I went to ford on 10/6/2016 and they said that the put needed replaced at 2000.00. I told them my car was just in and can't afford after the 3000.00 plus I already put into it a few moths ago and they should have noticed it then. He said these things just go. I could probably drive it for awhile before it brakes down and find my self on the side of the road... I can't afford this right now

On 4/17/16 told my PTU is Leaking. Replace PTU Seal ($684.86). Two months later I'm told I needed Gasket and ASY Injector ($509.97). Now here we are 5 months later and I'm told I need to replace the PTU and my . All of this work is being done through Ford Dealership.

2013 Ford Explorer Limited with 70,000 miles. My PTU failed and the only reason I knew was it was making a weird noise. I had no leaks or other way to know. My repair insurance required it to be opened and broken down which is how we found out what it failed. The fluid inside the sealed non-leaking unit had turned to sludge and everything was burning out. My repair insurance (Endurance) is refusing to cover the repair because the fluid inside had turned to sludge but I had no way to know the sealed unit was going bad and it had no leaks. This is going to cost me $1000 for the unit and $300 for the labor. The repair shop is giving us a break because they feel bad we got screwed by our repair insurance company.

2011 Ford Edge Sport with 112,000 km. I had no signs of a leak or issues prior but according to the Ford service technician my PTU blew up (torpedoed) and damaged other parts of my vehicle resulting in $4500 + tax bill. While driving on a highway I first smelt burning smell, then smoke came out of the engine and then a sudden loss of power.....and by the time I pulled over it felt like pieces had blown off the bottom of my vehicle. I had paid to get a 5 year warranty and of course it had just run out when this happened. With such an obvious issue why is Ford not doing anything about it.

Is there actually going to be any lawsuit regarding this? I have 3 mechanic shops that have been involved, pictures of the inside of the PTU that shows it appears there wasn't enough lubricant in it to begin with. If my vehicle was under a load there was just a hum from the PTU, but when the load was taken off and the vehicle raised it sounded like it was going to shake and explode off the vehicle. I had NO leaks. It's a sealed unit, there is no excuse for what occurred than it's a defective part. They don't even sell a rebuild kit, you have to replace it.

2007 ford edge sel 165,000. First it's the coil pack issue that burns up the ECM, $2000, should be a recall, now the PTU is leaking and runs like there is a miss! Really Ford, we pay tons of money for extended years of payments to afford buying these vehicles! It's time to step up and handle the issues for your comstomers!!

2008 FORD Edge AWD. Started making a slight grinding sound at about 150,000 miles. Changed the fluid in the case unit myself. Found some metal
flake particles in the old fluid.
Installed new fluid in the PTU.
Car ran fine for about 4 weeks. Started noticing a squeaking sound that sounded like a bad shock. Took the car to the dealer to look it over and $95.00 later they told me that the PTU was bad and it would cost $2,300 to replace it.
Car drives fine no power loss on the front or rear drive. Just a squeaking sound when the car takes a slight dip or turns to the left.
Took car home and jacked up the car to check it out myself.
No leaks, no metal powder by the seal or shaft ends. Nothings.
Checked CV drive shaft gear backlash seems normal.
Think I'll ride this one out.

Ford Edge AWD 2010: I just got my PTU fixed two weeks ago, then my car is still having the same issues, after it was fixed. Now the Ford dealer is telling me the back PTU broke. (didn't know I had front and back PTU?) ok, then, what is the status on this lawsuit?

I just had the PTU in my 2010 Ford Edge Limited replaced 3 days ago at 54,000 miles. The cost of the repair was about $1800. What is frustrating to me is the fact that I took the vehicle to the dealer about three months ago because I was hearing an unsettling intermittent squealing sound. We couldn't reproduce the sound while at the dealer service department. I felt that I was treated as though I might be imagining the problem. I was assured that the car was fine. If there is a history of this problem, I wonder why they did not take a look at the PTU to see if it had a problem.

I own a 2008 Ford Edge, which I recently took to a Ford service shop for a fuel tank safety recall. They informed me I have a leaking PTU that would cost $1040 to replace. After reading about the numerous PTU issues on the Ford Forum, it's clear Ford needs to cover this recurring problem as it’s a safety issue b/c the AWD fails when the PTU fails.

I own a 2014 Lincoln MKX, The dealer repair shop just called me and said that the PTU Unit is leaking and that they need to order one to replace it. This is the 2ND PTU Unit replacement on this vehicle in less than 6,000 miles! Still under warranty, but how often will this happen? I think the Company has a REAL problem - hope they continue to cover the expense even after the warranty has depleted!

We just bought a 2013 Ford Edge Sport with 22,000 miles last month. Started smelling a burning oil smell through the ventilation. After googling power train warranty from Ford, I noticed PTU popped up as it being a problem. I called Ford and made an appointment. Took the Edge on and as the female service writer of the power train warranty would cover the PTU of there was an issue. She stayed that I did not have a warrany, as I stated the bumper to bumper expired last month, but still have the power train warranty. She stated they will have to what parts are covered. I told her are you kidding me. Hours later I was advised that the PTU was shot and I was SOL. I will never buy a Ford ever again. I have a 2007 Ford F-150 with the 5.4 nightmare. I should have learned my lesson not to buy a Ford again, but I thought I would try again, boy was I wrong. Ford does nothing for there horrible engineering flaws. FU Ford

I have a 2007 Ford Edge. The ODO Data Error message displays, odometer stops working, wrench light illuminates and as far as I push on the gas petal, nothing but engine ramps up like its in high gear. Car instantly will not go. I attempted to put into park and it sounded and felt as if the transmission was about to fall out from the car. Very hard thump sound when I did get it to shift. When I placed back into Drive, there was a short delay before the transmission actually shifted and again, it sounded as if the entire thing was about to fall out from under the car. Next, when I attempted to accelerate on the gas, no movement, but the engine was clearly running as the RPMs showed. Eventally, after holding down the gas petal to the floor for a few seconds, the car shifted and began to drive normally again.

I have a 2010 Ford Edge SEL AWD. I am having the same problem with the black grease leakage and the propane like smell. The problem started at 110,000 miles. I took the vehicle in and the dealer told me that it was the PTU. I could not afford to fix it. I had them fill the case with whatever the grease was. They showed me that the grease was coming out of the vent. There is no way to flush the system because it is a closed/sealed unit. The problem persisted I have 133,000 miles on the car now. I am now starting to experience jumps on acceleration. I am sure it is the PTU. The dealer told me that later units allowed for flushing. But the one on my car does not. I know I'm going to have to replace it but based on what I have read it is a recurring problem even with the replacement units. So I am going to drive this vehicle until the point of total failure. This is definitely an engineering or product quality issue and should be addressed by the manufacturer.

Brought the vehicle brand new in Apil 2016, a 2016 Ford Explorer Sport. I have had it returned to the shop 4 times since. Last week it was back in the shop because of a horrendous smell coming from the vehicle. I've had 3 different smells, an exhaust smell (sulfur), a burning oil smell and a burning smell because of the under body anti rust that was over sprayed onto the hot surfaces. Last week the Ford dealership replaced the PTU. I was told it stunk their entire workshop and offices out. God knows what toxins have been flooding into the cabin as I drive my kids around. I have been driving it over the weekend and the smell is back. This is absolutely ridiculous. At the moment it's under warranty but not for long. What will the trade in value be, people do their homework. I, like all of you want answers and protection.

I have a 2008 ford edge. I received a letter saying there was a recall on the gas tank. I was already smelling a burning smell coincidentally around the same time the letter came. After taking it to the dealer I was told that the ptu seal was cracked. After telling them to fix it they called me back saying the whole ptu needed to be replaced for 1700. I still haven't gotten it fixed.. I will never buy a ford again

So my 2013 Ford Edge SEL AWD has been leaking this blackish oil for a little while now and ive had this smell in the cabin like burning oil (noticed it when I first got the car used over a year ago but has been getting worse) (Maybe that's why someone was selling it?). Anyway, I recently had an oil change done so I went back to see if maybe it was a leaking seal or something. They said my oil was fine and that the thick black metallic oil dripping is coming from my gear box and that I should get that checked right away.

I brought it to a mechanic and he called me the next day saying that I needed a new transfer case (or PTU power transfer unit). Apparently it controls the all-wheel drive aspect of my car and he told me this is very common in similar Fords with AWD. The oil heats up and has no venting hole and gets spewed out somehow and it looses oil until it dries up and your shit out of luck. That spewing hot oil is what was causing the bad smell in the cabin. Apparently there’s no fix to it or aftermarket product available so he would have to order the part from Ford and it would cost me just under 2000$ to fix. I told him to hold off and made some calls and research.

Apparently, this has been happening for quite a while now….

I called Ford and booked an appointment to get my PTU changed. I found out today that luckily this is covered under the power train warranty (less than 100,000km/5 yr). But what gets me is the fact that this seems to be a recurring problem since it’s an engineering malfunction and not to a specific part so it will happen again. No recall on this.

I just hope they realized this is serious issue and something must be done about it. Once I get my car back, I might be looking switch and staying away from Ford. Its a shame, I really enjoy my Edge.

2009 Ford Edge AWD 75K miles. No PTU failure yet, but after reading everything here, I decided to check and maybe change the gear oil in the PTU. I tried to suck the oil out using a pump, but could not get anything. Top it up with specified gear oil. It took 10 fl oz. The PTU only holds 12 fl oz. when dry. Can 2 fl oz of old original gear-oil keep in from failing? So far it has, but I'm sure the PTU is damaged and its day are numbered.

My 2011 Ford Flex, transfer case fluid is leaking, some of it getting on exhaust causing burning smell. Drive shaft to rear end is making a terrible noise. I do not wish to pay a lot of money to fix this, being that it's a factory malfunction. And I took it to Big O yesterday, spent 3 hours there with my two year old. I spent $400 to replace breaks and a rotor, but did not fix the problem, they said they could NOT fix it. It's my only vehicle currently, and I am not sure what to do.

2007 Ford Edge PTU started leaking and stinking. I am a mechanic so I pulled it out, tore it down and rebuilt it. I modified it so I could drain and refill it with gear oil.

The car now has just about 150,000 miles on it. The PTU started leaking at about 90,000.

I have a 2010 Edge that I purchased almost 4 years ago (May 2013). A short time after I bought it we noticed that occasionally it would experience a "hard shift". I brought it to a dealer where they charged me well over $100 to check it out and tell me they couldn't find anything. A few months later, it happened again so I took it to a different dealer, explained my frustration with the first dealer and had them check it out. They too, found nothing, charged me over $100 and told me to come back while it was doing it. Really??? I told them I was concerned that after the warantee ran out that a problem would surface. Sure enough, I am smelling a burnt chemical smell and see a puddle of dark brown/black liquid under center of the car while in garage. This car has been extremely well maintained and treated properly. I was hoping to keep this car a few more years. Now what?

2008 Ford Edge - I noticed a fowl oil burning smell several years ago it was a PTU seal leak on passenger side that cost me about $500.00 + tax to repair. A short time later I noticed the same smell and suspected the mechanic missed something and expected a warranty repair. Turned out to be a new seal leak .. this time on the drivers side that cost me another $500.00 + tax. OK ... problem solved right!? No..... having problems with it again and told the PTU needs to be replaced and if I keep driving it .... I'm warned could damage and possibly need to rebuild my transmission. What does a PTU cost here in Canada? Checked with FORD a week ago and told a new PTU costs $1200.00 give or take plus labour (I'm told is 7 hrs approx of work). After spending about $1000.00 + in repairs and now needing to replace the PTU + labour the total surrounding a PTU only is coming to astounding figure of $3200.00 for one part that essentially, without it, the vehicle cannot function.

As this seems to be one of the most common of issues with FORD AWD vehicles and understandable wear and tear as fair, FORD should at the very least be responsible for the part cost of replacing the PTU.

Same problem(s) as mentioned above. Bought the vehicle used (80K miles) from a local dealer six months ago. 2007 Ford Edge AWD SEL. Pretty disappointed as this is the second issue in 3 months. First it was the two transmission sensors (Speed output and Turbine speed) and now it appears to be the PTU and accompanying seals and/or gaskets. Again, pretty disappointed. If this is a known issue, the consumer should NOT be held responsible. FORD MUST stand by their product. -- JMS

I have a 2011 Lincoln MKZ that I just had to take to dealer 2 days prior to Christmas to learn that it would cost $1852 plus tax, and possibly $960 for a new drive shaft to fix a problem I had no idea was coming. On top of that I'm being told my tires which I purchased all new in 2014, Vehicle in in 2013 which I'm still making payments on. This has come at a horrible time as I've been struggling with debt all year. I find hope in the fact I'm not the only one who has experienced this issue and that others have reached out to Ford/Lincoln for some type of acknowledgement, be it a recall of some type, improvements in the technology something. I also had same costly issues with my Ford Explorer and am now visiting never again purchasing a Ford unless some type of relief is provided. This power take off unit issue is obviously inherent in model design.

2011 Ford Edge AWD Limited: I took my car in for brake recall and advised that I wanted them to check over the car really well because my warranty was going to expire. That was at 72,000 miles. I drove it to Florida fro Illinois and back, to discover a leak in my garage. A thick black fluid. Like everyone else, I took it back to the dealer and they discovered two issues. 1. PTU leak and 2. High pressure hose power steering leak. I was now at 78,000 with no warranty. My power train ended at 60,000. I've been advised that it would be 1300.00 for the PTU and 500 for the power steering leak. I called Ford to see if they could assist, they entered my complaint and sent it back to the dealer. The dealer entered in the system that there was nothing they could do to assist and closed the issue. I have yet to have it fixed.

Not happy with Edge, telling my mom NOT to get one!!! Ford should stand behind this PTU issue, to many people having this problem!!!

2007 Edge It started with a grinding humming noise while turning mostly. A week later it sounds like a can of bolts knocking around, and that the car is backfiring and jerking. Its extremely loud and scary. We are not going to drive it anymore until we get it to the shop. I'm guessing the PTU is the issue.

PTU starting going out before Christmas. You smelt a burning gas type smell and then started grinding really bad. 52,000 miles on the vehicle and it gets babied. Dealership luckily said it was under warranty still but has had the vehicle for a week now. 2013 FORD EDGE LIMITED. Louisville, Kentucky area.

I have a 2007 Lincoln MKX, I purchased this vehicle used almost 5 yrs ago and have not really had nothing to complain about until now. After owning the vehicle for a few months I noticed a smell in the cabin that was like natural gas or propane, I brought it in for service and was told the ptu had a slight leak but I would have to pay out of pocket because they claim the previous owner already brought it in under the recall. Well the vehicle seemed fine so I rolled the dice-actually the smell went away so I figured all was well. Two weeks ago it started making a hum and then a grinding noise, I thought it was a bad bearing or calliope so I had planned to bring it for service next week. Yesterday the propane smell came back in full force, it nearly choked me. I tried to leave for work this am and the grinding is deafening. Just got the repair estimate-need a new transfer case, $2500 to fix. I love this vehicle and will get the repair done but I'm annoyed that this seems to have been an ongoing issue for years and nothing's being done about it. Hopefully I can get another year out of her after this repair.

2013 Ford Explorer Sport with 90,000 miles and a PTU that is cracked in half. Dealership initially wanted to charge $2600, but so far we have "negotiated" down to $1600. We bought the car used 8 months ago. It doesn't seem right that there are this many issues and they continue to sell the vehicles with no indication of an issue. I also found a form that I signed at 1:00 in the morning after dealing with finance that says I would not participate in any class action lawsuit. Seems very fishy to me. Ford put it off on the dealership and the dealership is putting it off on Ford. Lovely.

About 2 months ago I purchase a used 2013 Ford Edge Sport with about 17K miles on it. About a month a ago I began smelling fumes coming through the vents while driving, but particularly at stops. At take off I began hearing a rubbing/grinding sound on the passenger rear. I reported it to the dealer and just took it in on Friday. Clearly they knew about this problem but sold the car to me anyway. Fortunately, and unfortunately, I purchased a bumper to bumper warranty after negotiating a desperate salesman down to cost. Something told me to look into this matter and I stumbled across this class action. Though they are fixing the problem, I can only wonder if it's a permanent fix? I will be monitoring this issue. We should be reimbursed every penny spent on repairs and cost for time.

So it was replaced, I got my oil changed and was informed I had a leak is how I even knew there was an issue (thanks Jiffy Lube:). Fortunately I have an extended warranty on my 2011 Ford Edge (AWD) so my cost was 100.00 out of pocket (thank goodness).

PTU has gone bad presently at dealer to be fixed. $1810 cost. Ford makes this part almost impossible to get to because of the way it is mount it around the exhaust system.

Like everyone else we are bearing this cost what no assistance from Ford Motor Company we bought a extended Ford ESP Company warranty for 75,000 miles. At 86,000 it goes bad

Apparently there is a technical bulletin out that's talk's about a smell when accelerating. This is one of the symptoms that the unit has when it is going bad.

So our vehicle was not serviced at a Ford dealer it was serviced and never was there any indication that there was a leak of this unit.

So why is it for being sued for a class action suit

The driveshaft broke within the first few weeks of owning the vehicle. Not to mention wheel bearings on all four, front tie rods. I get some of this is normal wear and tear but come on.

Replaced the PTU on a 2011 Edge in December 2016 at a cost of $2100. Service Techs asked if I ever have had it serviced. Said no, as the manual does not require it. They stated that the fluid should be drained/changed every 50,000 miles to prevent the issue of burnt oil and damaged PTU's.

2007 Ford Edge PTU failed. Got a quote for 1500 from the local Ford dealership. From what I've just found in a few minutes of researching this, Ford should claim responsibility since it is a well known design flaw. This is outrageous and I would like to be part of any class action as this PTU issue with the AWD edges.

We had just been told on 2.8.17 that we have a leak in our PTU/Differential in our 2010 Lincoln MKT with 90,000 miles on it. Obviously we are out of warranty and the mechanic we took it to can't determine exactly what the issues is without charging us first to take it apart to investigate. We are seeking a second opinion, but seeing all the posts here and all over the web it seems this is a faulty part. If the fluid is lifetime and not on a recommended change schedule, but then leaks and causes smells and grinding, it seems to me to be an issue that Ford should address and fix. Been a loyal Ford person, but between this and my issues with our Explorer I may go to foreign vehicles that you can put more miles on before there are any costly repairs. Very disappointed.

We bought a 2013 edge SEL AWD in Otober 2016. It had 46000 mi on it. Early January 2017 we had a ptu seal leak. The dealer we bought it from replaced the axle shaft and seal. We drove it 300 miles to our son's place in Wisconsin and it was leaking again. We had another seal installed by Ford dealer in Baraboo Wi. We returned home in Mn a couple of days later and it was leaking again. We took it to Ford dealer in Paynesville Mn. They replaced ptu assembly ordered from Ford. After about 50 miles the ptu was hot and smelled like hot gear lube. Took it back and they found that the replacement ptu was bad. The dealer ordered a second ptu assembly which will be there in a few days. There is no excuse for this happening to a vehicle with about 50000 miles on it.

I have a 2007 Ford Edge and it has been "Banging" into gear the past year. Some say it is the transmission. Others say it also can need a tune up. I saw on another forum a guy who experienced the same problems as me, said he brought his edge to a transmission shop and they diagnosed it for 90 minutes and said it was an engine misfire. He replaced the spark plugs, Coils and Pvc Valve and it worked. So it may be different for other Edge owners. But this is scary when it bangs and is very loud. Especially on the highway. I read hundreds and maybe thousands of complaints about this problem. Thank you for posting this. I feel every Edge owner should be compensated in some way.

First of all, I bleed Ford blue, always did and always will. I bought a 2005 Ford Freestyle and at around 110K miles, the transmission failed. I then bought a 2006 Ford Freestyle and at around 80K miles, that transmission also failed. I Googled it and found this affliction was common to most Freestyles. I am a certified auto technician and a retired automotive instructor. I pride myself on meticulous maintenance of my vehicles and was caught off guard when I found out that the transmissions were virtually non-serviceable.
Moving up, I decided on a 2010 Flex. Super car by most standards, although replacing 3 blend door actuators was a bother, I chalked it up to routine maintenance.
At 90K I noticed a slight vibration that could not be pin-pointed. Yesterday, it became obvious. First was a horrible burnt oil smell followed by dripping fluid followed by a destroyed PTU. Out of warranty, I have to burden that cost also.
I believe Ford should be financially accountable to some degree for the component failure that is common to the majority of a specific product line.
A side note. I discovered the transmission failure of the Freestyle was due to a cost saving maneuver. There was an internal bronze bushing that was originally designed to be a caged roller bearing. If the bearing were installed, this CVT transmission would, by far, outlast the vehicle many times over. If anyone experiences this situation in the Freestyle, be sure the Tech uses the available roller bearing in place of the bushing. I didn’t get into the Flex PTU as of yet to determine what it shortcoming is.
I would be satisfied if Ford would reimburse us for either the labor or component cost for the Flex PTU situation.

Yet another 2011 AWD Ford Edge with PTU replacement. 84,000 miles. Having another time bomb installed at my cost of $1850. When will this get resolved? It's obvious the part/assembly has an issue. You can basically call the part a consumable like tires or brakes. Most Ford service centers probably keep a few on hand knowing the next one is coming in any day.

Pretty poor on Ford's part. You can call and create a case number but then they kick it back to the service manager at whatever dealership you're dealing with like it's their problem. It's not theirs or the dealership's problem. FoMoCo needs to step up and make it right. First Ford I have purchased and will be my last for sure. You had a chance to earn me as a customer but chose not to do so. Stuff happens. It's the reaction and resolution to that "stuff" that matters. It doesn't seem to be a big deal to Ford and they will just keep collecting the 1600-2000 every time they install another one. It's just a sign of the times. Companies are too big to make accountable anymore with all their lobbyists and special interests and the working folks get screwed. Usually when you get robbed it's with a weapon.

2010 Ford Edge. 3 replacements down and researching the best price for another one. 4 ptu's in 7 years with absolutely no other issues is ridiculous. The only reason this 3rd one is still going with all the clunking is because every other weekend I siphon out the old pasty oil and fill with fresh oil. Never realized that the oil would turn to PlayDo in my ptu. This is cause for a lawsuit and they should have a suitable upgraded replacement with no cost to install.

I have a 2008 Forde Edge. I have had it for not even 4 years yet and I have dumped so much money into fixing this vehicle. I had it serviced at the Ford dealership in July 2015 because my transmission locked up. They replaced the control asy, all the sensors, core return, and a valve replaced. Today I had my breaks done and my mechanic informed me I had a small leak. I save all my peperwork, so I pulled out the invoice from 2015 from Ford. I noticed on the back a multi point vehicle inspection. In the comments it says "ptu slight leak". I googled it and found this site.

I have a 2007 Ford Edge 85K miles, car lost power on the freeway going 65 mph heavy rain and surrounded by semi trucks, barely made it safely to the side. Car towed and was told it was the PCM which is faulty in this model and should be recalled, needs replacing with 6 coils as well. Then a Ford service after having my car for 18 days now says my engine has ceased and I now need a new engine. This is my 8th Ford, and this is how I am treated??? Horizon Ford says they could possibly fix it for a MINIMUM of $10,700. I am living day to day on social security I CANNOT afford this!!! Ford needs to stand by its product.

Just found out that my 2010 Edge SEL AWD needs the PTU replaced not even one day after I had a PTU seal fixed for over $700.00. I haven't got the quote for the PTU yet. I'm sure it will be high. Ford needs to get involved and extend the warranty on this part.

Bought a used 2007 Edge a little more than a year ago. I have 113,000 miles on it and just replaced the front axels. Now it seems, I may have to replace the PTU. I have been smelling something lately that reminded me of rodent urine, and when I took it in for an oil change last week they said I had some leakage in the pan. Now I am noticing more smell and very large red spills under my car. What really sucks is this car was a much needed replacement to my 2004 Buick Rendezvous with a bad tranny x2! I'm still paying for that in my car loan. Not in The position to fix this car. With all these complaints, Ford needs to recall the parts!

My 2013 Edge AWD had a PTU failure at 82k miles. Looked up the problem online ms found it was very common for the AWD owners. It was determined that the unit was designed with too small of a fluid resivoir which caused the seals to overheat and leak. In turn causing unit failure. I was quoted approx. $2200 for parts and labor. My first question was is the new unit to be installed a redesigned unit with serviceable seals? I was told it would be just like factory one. Doomed to fail! With this being a known major design flaw and very common problem, if I wasn't getting a new unit that was redesigned not have that he same problems then I shouldn't have to pay for the parts. Was told to call Ford and open a trouble ticket and let them decide. Ford covered the flawed PTU and coveted the dealers labor. Now I'm just waiting for this one fail like the original did.

Mine was just fixed. 2014 Ford Flex AWD. # hour waiting time. It did not cost me a dollar. They said it was under warranty. I first thought I was leaking oil and was going to get that fixed on this past Saturday's Oil change. Then they told me about the PTU.

I have a 2013 Edge AWD and had the PTU replaced after it was found to have a crack last fall. Just took it in for an oil change yesterday and the black liquid of death is back. Seems the PTU is leaking again only months later. I take it in this week to get it replaced again!!!

We have a 2011 Ford Flex Limited with the 3.5L Ecoboost AWD with 95,000 miles. We have been told that the PTU needs to be replaced after differential fluid was found on the garage floor and traced to the PTU vent as the source of the fluid. The Ford Dealership is quoting us $2100 for a PTU replacement. We are taking it in to a Ford Dealership in Sterling Heights Michigan for the PTU to be replaced.

Purchased a certified 2015 Ford Edge in December 2015 fromna Ford dealer....noticed a biting smell within a couple of weeks ...after the purchase but it wasn't really bad but stronger at times ...didn't think it was anything serious since I had just purchased it...took itt into the dealer for oil change in March and told them about the smell ...they acted like it was no big deal and made an appointment the. Ext week ....I am so upset that I just made the purchased and now this ....my car had 31,000 and was around 33000 when I took it in ....I am very disappointed but glad it was still under warranty

I believe we have just discovered a transfer case leak in my 2011 Lincoln MKX. We learned of it Friday and I have been leaving messages with the dealership ad have not received a call back. To complicate things for me, the dealership has just recently ended their relationship with Lincoln so I am concerned with how I am going to get the car repaired properly.

I purchased a 2008 Ford Edge in late August 2016 with only 32,000 miles on it and my transfer case pretty much just broke in half. $1500 to repair. I spoke with a man that worked for the Ford dealership for 30 years in the service department and he said this happens all the time! Why hasn't this been recalled yet?


Joyce L. said

My 2008 Ford Edge is at the dealership now being looked at for what seems to be a PTU issue. I took it to another car shop first, but was told the PTU work can only be done at the dealership. This is sounding suspect after reading through so many similar complaints on this site. I do hope this law firm is able to hold Ford accountable for this faulty part!

I have a 2009 Ford flex that was having problems at about 25,000 miles. The dealership kept telling me they couldn't find anything wrong with it.

My wife has a 2012 ford flex with 60k, we heard a noise under the car and took it to the dealer and they told us is the PTU, that it needs to be replace. They are charging us $2,049 to replace it. We only drive the car locally and we don't tow anything, I've notice a lot of flex with this issue. I called customer service because we are just 4 month out of warranty, they told me to contact the dealer to see if they can do anything, i called and the dealer told me that there's nothing they can do, to call customer service, so i called again and they told me that my warranty finish 4 months ago, that there's nothing they can do. This is the 1st and last Ford i purchase, it just scares me that we as customers looking for a American vehicle we have to think about this issues when purchasing a car, is not worth it. I work in the Auto Parts business and i always told my customer to buy Ford and when i sold Parts i always sold the recommended (Motorcraft). I guess it doesn't matter, because the Dealer and their customer service will never help you and the only thing you'll hear from them is am sorry there's nothing we can do.

So for the first few years every so often I would get a burning smell after driving fast on the highway. I went to ford and they said it was a seal that had gone so they repaired it and off I went. Happened again same thing. Then it started to leak on my driveway so they fixed it again. Quite a while went by and I noticed this thick black stuff leaking out if my car. I went to my local mechanic and he explained the flaws in these transfer units and told me the dealer or the person who repairs it last packed it full of a grease and it was a mess and needed replacing 2400.00 repair.

2007 Ford Edge Plus, bought this car used because it looked like a new car, super clean and love the way it drives. It does have a lot of miles on it, 165K to be exact. I had it checked at my Ford dealer, they said it was a very solid car, no issues with the suspension, looked new and the engine runs very strong, no issues. They did tell me to keep an eye on oil leaks. Had the power steering hoses replaced. Now the PTU is puking and was told that it would be $1,730. Obviously, Ford knows this is a problem. I did a Carfax on this car and it did not show any issues like the PTU. I can't believe it made it 165K without needing the PUT replaced. It's an AWD car. New It's not making ant noises and drives perfectly, but I'm sure it won't be long before it fails. PTU on order. What the hell else can I do. It's a good thing I didn't pay a lot for the Edge. We have a 2017 Ford Explorer AWD, I will trade it before the warranty runs out.

2011 Edge Sport AWD same issue, seems suspect that a car this expensive can barely manage to make 100K before large expensive parts start to break. Refilled with gear oil and will change it out a few times over the next few months to see if I can avoid replacing it entirely.

Well my 2009 Lincoln MKX only has about 51,000. They are telling me I need to pay 3000 plus for cam phasers. I started researching. My car also make this noise after 40mph. I don't want to have them take the whole front apart. Get in there and start adding all these others charges. It's crazy. Only 51000 miles. It took me an hour to read through some of the problems people are having with their ford vehicles. How can they get away with it?? We have to make it public. Get the news involved. I don't want this car anymore!!

We are in the process of replacing our Transfer Case/PTU as well. 70,000 Miles on our 2008 Ford Edge Limited, and it started leaking fluid heavily. Thought it was oil leak, but upon my mechanic's inspection it was a transmission issue. Took it to transmission shop and told us it needs to be replaced. $1,600 for re-manufactured part and labor. We were not expecting to make such a hefty repair on a vehicle's transmission system with less than 100k miles. With the price of vehicles nowadays it should not be this epidemic of a problem.

I noticed my 2010 Lincoln MKS was leaking a tiny amount of what I thought was oil in my garage. Took it in and of course it was not oil. 53K miles on it and I had to replace the PTU for $1700. He said even though only a little had leaked out it holds such a small amount that it does damage almost instantly. I take excellent care of my care. Transmission shop tells me they keep these parts in stock now as they see it all the time on cars built on this platform. Ford needs to do something!

I have a 2013 Ford Explorer AWD with 81,000 miles. I noticed some fluid leaking on my driveway. I verified that it was engine oil from the pan or plug. I took it in to my local Ford dealership. They said it was the PTU leaking because the the tread on my front tires were 3/32" different from my rear tires. They still have great tread and should last another 20,000 miles. I'm going to take it to another mechanic to get a second opinion. It very well may be the PTU, but I think the dealership's story is a bunch of BS.

I have a 2014 Ford Flex that I purchased used from dealer in Utah. It has had the stinking propane like smell from day one, that was a year and a half ago. They test drive it but it never smells for them! They told us we needed to change the transmission oil needed to be changed and so we did and now the PTU needs to be fixed. I'm glad I purchased the extended warranty so will cost me about $100.00. It is inconvenient as we have to travel quite a ways to get things fixed. I hope this doesn't keep happening because I like my car. My husband wants to get rid of it now. I don't feel like the dealership even cares. With this many complaints I'm surprised that hasn't been a recall.

I have a 2010 awd flex. My steering rack was leaking and after a hose replacement at the dealer the leak grew worse. After leaking for two years I finally had it replaced by my Mechanic. In the meantime I have replaced all the hub bearings, no, not with ford bearings (as they have been a problem) but with timken hub bearings. My vehicle has also developed that sickening nuts and bolts in a blender sound at around 120k. I thought it was the cv joints but was hoping it wasn't the transmission. My mechanic confirmed that it was the front differential (ptu). I was going to buy a used one but on reading this forum, I'm going to get a new one. I can't afford a new car after paying $40k for this one that I thought would last longer. I'm going to have a metal shroud place between the ptu and the exhaust heat or catalytic converter to have the heat wicked away from the ptu and extend its sad badly designed life. In the interim I'm going to be saving for my first foreign car. I've had several Fords a few GMs and 3 Chryslers. If the company is corrupt the the service is good. Then quality is up and service is bad. Then the company wants to do the right thing, but now quality is bad and service is worse. With Ford, its always a mixed bag. So I'm giving up. I really love my flex though. I just wish ford would own up. I would pay 2000$ More for quality than pay 2000 and more for repairs and lost faith in a company.

2008 Ford Edge. Multiple same issues as trustworthy consumers above. Ford= Found On Road Dead. How do they let vehicles transporting children loose acceleration power or worse yet loose braking power due to transmission errors and "speed sensors". Replaced multiple times but that did not solve problem. Now told transmission needs replacement?!? Too many wheel bearings to count. Leaks (ptu?), loose this and rusted that. The list of repairs is endless. Mechanics have even turned me away, they won't work on it. Now paint is peeling off in chunks ugh! $$$$ Come on!!

Bought a 2016 Ford Edge with less than 20k miles on Memorial Day Weekend. Home visiting my parents when the overwhelming smell of propane filled the cabin. A quick google search, and many disgruntled Ford customers, correctly suggested a burned up PTU. I've been waiting for 3 days to see if they can even get the part before the weekend. Luckily it's a CPO. Very unfortunate and disappointing that this is commonplace with Ford Edge.

I have a 2013 Ford Edge I purchased with 48K miles in Sept 2016. It is now June of 2017 and have close to 70K miles and the PTU has failed because there is no way to change the oil in this unit and since it sits behind the exhaust system, the extra heat causes ( as Ford states "Life Long" oil) to break down. Now I am looking at a $1600 repair. I noticed the problem 2 months back with tar like sludge spots in my garage but there is no way to access and maintain so it is a waiting game. I understand Fords that are sold in the Mid East have a drain plug. Bad deal for the US Ford Edge Owner.

I just purchased a 3013 Ford Edge on April 21,3017. This was a Ford Certified used vehicle bought from Karl Flammer Ford in Taropn Springs, Florida. Before I even made my first payment I notice it's leaking transmission fluid. I call the dealer and they say it's been more than 30 days since I purchased it and I will need to take it to take it to dealer and use my warranty through Ford. Well I had bought an extended warranty at time of purchase plus it's still under the 60,000 factory warranty. I take it to my local dealer they say it needs seals replaced, which have to be ordered that takes 4 days. So I take it in they replace seals I pay 100 bucks for deductible and think it's fixed. Get home it sits there two days before I start to drive it again and see it's still leaking transmission fluid only worse than before. So it's Saturday the service department is closed so I have to wait till Monday to speak with them, it's now Sunday night at 4 am so can't sleep because I am worried to death. You see I am retired and disabled this is the first car I have had that cost this much money. I had been driving the same car since 2005 but it was 16 years old and starting to have problems so I got this 3013 Edge think I wouldn't have to worry about anything for along time. But I should have kept my 3001 Expedition because it had never had these problems it had and still is going strong mechanically. I am so upset I can't afford to be making a car payment and constantly having repairs on top of that especially from a vehicle that was Certified by Ford to have no problems. I do not understand how they could Certify a vechicle that obviously had this problem when they sold it to me. Please let this be resolved and Ford fix this problem for all of us.

2012 Ford Edge AWD required a new Power Transfer Unit (PTU) to be installed at 89,000 miles due to a leaking seal followed by full failure of the PTU. Seems Ford has had many problems with this unit as the new PTU installed in my vehicle was the 'fourth and latest design' of this system available from Ford.

Though the PTU is not required to have the lubrication changed due to Ford's claim that the factory fluid is good for the life of the car I had the fluid changed as a precaution with Ford specified lubricants at 50,000 and 85,000 miles. Unfortunately, the PTU still failed (as predicted by the many upset owners of this Ford product). Repair was nearly $1,800.

I have a 2009 awd ford edge. I had the transmission serviced at 30,000 and 80,000 miles. My PTU began leaking and was replaced at approximately 117,000 miles. It cost nearly as much as a rebuilt transmission, parts and labor came to $1600. My impression is that the PTU is not serviceable, only replaceable.
