You are in the Ford Edge
What is this discussion about?
Ford Edge, SUV
Jan 17, 2008 (2:04 pm)
My ford edge with 9k miles was smelling like exhaust inside the car. Ford found and fixed a rear axle seal. This took about 2 weeks because of the holidays and another part being defective and in short supply. The car still has this sporadic smell of exhaust or burning inside and outside the car. One time, smoke was coming in through the vent.
My ford dealer said to bring it back when it is making the same smell again. The problem is that it is sporadic and of short duration. Any suggestions? Anyone else experiencing this problem?
My dealer does not have a loaner available unless they know what the problem is.

I am reading more about this every day. Seems to be a problem with the seals in the transmission. Please check the posts in Blueovalnews.com, go under Edge Forums then TSB's Maintenance section -scroll down and you will see what I mean. I hope they get a handle on this problem. Dont wait to get it fixed.

Thank you for referral to Blueovalnews.com. Nice to know that I'm not crazy. The problems are very similar and I expect not a coincidence. Will follow-up with my Dealer more informed.

Thx.. I had the similar problem with my 2007 edge couple of months back where the wrench light came on and used to lose all power. I would stop and start after a few minutes and everything would get back to normal. This happened a couple of times, so I decided to take it to the dealer. They reported a speed sensors malfunction in the trans... unfrotunately, this is not under warranty from a mileage standpoint (115K kms) but less than 5 years, so ford is picking up 50% of the cost.
Did you ever face any more problems after getting this issue fixed with your edge? Honestly, I love my edge too... One last ques: how many miles/kms do you normally get on a tank (mix of hwy and city)? was there any improvement after getting this fixed?

Who did you contact to get the 50% off. My car is 4 years old and I am at 90K and I am having the same problem today.

The dealer has to request assistance from Ford. It's called an AWA - After Warranty Adjustment.
