TSB 13-9-6, 2013 Explorer AWD PTU Leak

Just thought I'd let all the AWD Explorer owners know there's a new TSB out today.

"Some 2013 Explorer, Taurus, and MKS vehicles
equipped with all wheel drive (AWD) and built on or
before 1/25/2013 may exhibit power transfer unit
(PTU) fluid leak. This concern may be due to a
PTU vent hose which is missing or disconnected."

Hmmm...another TSB that may be applicable to me again. Thanks!

If anyone can get the detailed TSB, then please share. =)

The only other information is telling the dealer what to do to fix the item.

If you want, I can email you the .pdf

I received an email from the new owner of my 2011 Limited last week saying that a week after he bought it, the vehicle had a PTU leak that required replacing some gaskets.

What are the symptoms of this leak? Does a check engine light or other warning come on? Just like to be prepared just in case...

The new owner said he heard some 'motor noise' and then found fluid on the driveway when his problem occurred. No other indications that he mentioned.

Thanks, I always check under where my cars are parked for fluid leaks regularly - as well as off course under the hood.

This tsb is for the vent hose, not the rear seal that most have that leak.
There is already a thread for that one I posted pictures to.
