The culprit fuse was under the hood - 20 amp fuse called "backup". Discovered nice cache of spare fuses and fuse puller tool in the under the hood fuse box.

I would be concerned that this issue is serious. Given all the parts that have been replaced already.

First get a leak down test performed to narrow down a possible cause. Both sides of the engine will require this test.

this will help determine a course of action
Here is a list of possible causes:
1. a plugged or restricted catalytic converter(s)
2. carbon buildup on the valves causing them to not fully close
3. issues with the active valve control system
4. less likely but possible the timing chain might have skipped

Yes, 86K is unexpectedly soon for a valve job. 200K is more likely. You've replaced the usual suspects, so its time to look further. Valve (or head gasket) problems can be identified with a dry and wet compression test AND a leakdown test. You really don't want to pay for a valve job (i.e both heads, gaskets and timing belt while you're there...) if its not needed. Other things to look for are vacuum leaks and exhaust leaks (odd effects can with these). Watch the coolant level: if its going down, its either leaking or burning == head gasket on the way out. Burnign coolant also creates while smoke. If the gas economy is way off, the catalytic converter could be damaged (unburned gas in the exhaust wrecks the cat).

The heater core may have to be replaced rather than flushed.

if manual ( not specified) reverse gear is a spur cut gear and will be noisy when engaged
gets worse if the gear has been engaged inadvertently or slashed by mistake as small pieces of the teeth get chipped off and the result is a noisy reverse operation
nothing to worry about til it starts to clunk as you are going in reverse

Hi! I've owned a 2013 Tribeca for over a year now. I purchased a bluetooth OBDII reader and use Torque Lite on my android smart phone to read and understand the codes. You can also clear off logged faults. I was on the freeway this summer and got a worrisome transmission error code, checked the code, cleared it, turned my car off and back on, everything was fine. If someone recently changed your sparkplugs, they may not have re-attached something properly. You can try removing the negative/black cable off your battery for 10 seconds then re-attach it securely and see if that resets the code at all. If not, take it back to the mechanic that changed your plugs.

Should not be hard to find. Simular to your engine, it will be on the transmission housing somewhere in reach.
