Question about Ford Edge

1 Answer

I am looking to buy a 2010 ford edge 3.5 v-6.The odometer says it only has 1215 miles on it,and auto-check confirms this,however,the valve cover looks like it has much more and I'm suspicious that the engine may have been changed.I have the VIN number, where do I find the engine serial number to see if it matches to that vehicle?

The serial number on all fords engines is located on the block flange where the transmission bell housing bolts up, based on what I know u will not be able to se this without removing the engine. This engine cost about $8000.00 to replace and there are no aftermarket sources for an engine, so I think it is 99% safe to assume the engine is the original one,.

    Thank you for your quick response,but of coarse your answer is not what I wanted to hear. What I did,t tell you in my question was that this suv had been in a "MINOR" front center collision. Although there are no other signs of trauma under the hood,or anywhere else for that matter,I come back to the badly discoloration on the visible valve cover. It looks like "vein" tracks of oil on the surface of the valve cover but it will not wipe off.This is an aluminum valve cover on a 4 month old vehicle with 1200 miles. Because of the low price I can buy this 2010 Edge Limited AWD ($ 26000.oo) my fear is that the accident was more severe than I am being told and a donor engine from an otherwise wrecked 07,08 or 09 Edge was swapped. Do you have any other explanation for this valve cover that looks like 120,000 miles rather than 1200? Or another possibility, do you think I,m looking a gift horse in the mouth?
    Last question, if you think the above scenario to be un-likely, what other indicators would you look for?






    Thanks,Olfes

2001 Ford Taurus gas gage


This is a frustrating problem. For many years I have had to change the way I keep track of fuel in my car that has a defective fuel sender in a tank that is very hard to remove.

I always fill up and use my trip odometer to keep track of miles driven. This process once it becomes part of your routine is very reliable. I use three hundred miles as my trigger to refill and reset the trip odometer.

You need to check the owners manual for tank size. I always check to confirm the residual at fill up. Works great

Hope this is a help?

When shouldpcv be changed on 2008 ford edge


If you are able, get a original part and change it following the services / warranty list of parts, that the dealer change according the miles. If you buy the PCV in a regular auto store; more frecuently, maybe half the time. Hope this helps. Take care.

Where is the egr on 2007 ford edge


What code do you have? The book shows that the 2007 3.5L engine doesn't use any EGR valve, newer engines are designed to run clean without the need for Exhaust Gas Recirculation valves. Also keep in mind the emission control system is covered under a 7 year or 70,000 mile federal warranty, longer in Calif.

Initially you would need to check the following two things:
1. Re-check and confirm the valve timing by removing the valve cover. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations.
2. Re-check the valve clearance.

How do i read my 91 ford explorer odometer?


Are you looking at the odometer or the tripometer? If it only has 5 digits it does not read the tenths of a mile only whole miles. So just read it as milage like 10 miles not 1.0 miles.
