2013 Ford Edge Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2013 Ford Edge


A leaking axle shaft seal and / or PTU cover seal can cause transmission (red) or Power Transfer Unit (PTU) (brown) fluid leaks at the axle area. The axle shaft seal and / or PTU cover seal may be leaking and should be replaced as required.

Adhesive for foam blocks in the headliner can fail leading to poor fitment of the headliner and a possible rattle around the sunroof area. The foam blocks attach the headliner to the mounting brackets. Access the headliner and re-secure the foam blocks to the brackets using cable ties / zip ties.

Had the PTU replaced at around 120K after a 2month wait for the part. It cost about 1,800.00!! Here I am with 145K and the PTU is on its way out AGAIN. Two units in 2 years. Visiting Honda dealers this weekend. Never ever will I buy another Ford. The dealers are not very helpful and act like they are surprised at the problem. Ford will not help at all. I had a Honda years ago and not one problem with it. I can't wait to get rid of the Edge.

The check engine light is on, when I step on the gas I feel the engine sputters and I loose power. The light is on now and I need to drop of to the shop this week. Not sure what's up with it?

The transmission feels like it slips and suddenly catches the gear and it's a big clunk. Sometimes I get a couple clunks as it switches between gears. The longer trip I make, and as I go up hills the worse it gets. I have it in the shop and I have drove with a mechanic and he said there ...

In the affected vehicles, the halfshaft retention clip may not have been properly installed. As a result, without prior warning the halfshaft may move outward and disengage from the linkshaft while driving. This would result in loss of engine power to the drive wheels. Dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure that the halfshaft is properly retained. If it is not, dealers will replace the linkshaft and also replace the halfshaft if it shows evidence of spline damage.

Vehicles equipped with a 2.0L engine are being recalled because a crack may develop in the fuel line pulse damper housing. This could result in a fuel odor, weepage, or a continuous leak while the fuel system is pressurized. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel line with one that does not include a damper. This recall supersedes NHTSA recall #12V438000. All vehicles repaired under the previous recall need to have the current remedy applied.
