Question about 2011 Ford Edge
I have an Edge 2WD Limited with a 3.5L V6. I am preparing to do a tune up in which I have all 6 plugs and PCV Valve. I need instructions for the install of the plugs which most likely involve removal of intake manifold and other parts. I don't want to get into the job and realize I needed parts and not havce a vehicle to use to get to the parts store. I have worked on older cars a little so It doesn't have to be explained in lowest knowledge terms.

It is located at the back of the engine near the fire wall. It is gray with a T connector at the top with two hoses coming off of the T and going forward into the intake manifold.

I dont think it is the PCV but its a good idea to replace the PCV at least once a year either way, and its very cheap, usually $2-$5 at autozone.

I just changed the plugs (and one COP coil) on my 2002 Escape V6. Yes, you have to remove the upper intake to get to the 3 plugs on the rear bank. It's not very difficult. The o-ring -like gasket set is about $10 from Autozone.

Short of actually getting my hands on your truck to do the diagnosis myself... These are the things I can think of off-hand that would cause your P0174 and not necessarily set other DTCs.
- A faulty upstream Bank 2 O2 sensor or wiring (though you already have this base somewhat covered and Ford O2 sensors are tough, usually don't see failure except in cases of contaminated fuel or excessive use of over-the-counter fuel additives)
- A bent, disconnected, or broken Intake Manifold Runner Control rod or butterfly assy on Bank 2
- An exhaust leak on Bank 2 (esp. since you mentioned headers)
- An intake manifold leak either at the gasket or injector o-rings on Bank 2
- A weak or partially stopped-up injector(s) on Bank 2. Though I find this unlikely since you mentioned there was no misfire.
- A plugged or restricted Catalyst on Bank 2. Also seems unlikely given that you do not experience misfire or low power concerns.
- A faulty Powertrain Control Module. This option, though not unheard of, is VERY unlikely in my experience with these trucks.
If I think of anything else I will let you know. I wish that I could help more, remote diagnostics without all the needed tests and information on a problem such as this amounts to little more than conjecture.

Testimonial: "Nicely explained and usefeull information."
The valve is located under the thermostat housing facing the front of the car. There is very little room to work with here. You'll have to pull the hose up from the valve then pull the valve out.
