    Leaking PTU Vent

    It's a bit of a chore to get it out but not too bad. Used a Chilton's manual and the step by step went well. Had to remove the rh half-shaft and rh exhaust. Tried to leave the catalytic converter but it's easier with it out of the way. The upper PTU attach bolt is hard to get to but with the...

    Leaking PTU Vent

    Guess I'll respond to my own quote then move on. I do believe in info sharing. Split the case on the PTU and there is no gasket, only grey RTV.

One diagnosis from ford is that the system is over filled, which this is not possible. It says it could also be...

    Engine Support bar

    I need to remove the transmission in my 2012 explorer to change a rear main seal. The procedure calls for an engine support bar to hold everything (the engine) in place during transmission removal. HAs anyone used a work around for this tool. Can the engine simply be supported from the bottom...

    rear main seal

    I have a 2012 explorer with the v-6 engine. The main rear seal appears to be leaking. Not a lot out there but the job looks fairly straight forward. Drop the tranny, remove old seal, and replace. I've not actually pulled a transmission before but cant image it being too difficult. Ford wants...
