Mid-2016 Ford modified the PTU...againI thought it had gone 2011-15 sealed, 2016 fill plug added, 2017-2019 drain plug added. But I can't remember the source on that, so grain of salt and all that.
Mine is a March/April '16 build. The PTU's were modified again around June '16 so yours probably has the updated PTU.Hmmm, when did Ford update the PTU?
I just had my dealer look at mine because of the trans issues and have him confirm the PTU was in good working order. He said mine didn't have the drainplug, just a fillplug. Mine is a June '16 build.
They checked my fluid and it's in good shape. He said it's supposed to be serviced at 90k miles.
Yes from the sounds of it. My city's police department had three of their five '16 Interceptors have their PTU's go bad. Theirs were built around the same time as mine, two of them were district cars and one was a detective car so not driven as hard. The PTU issues along with the Carbon Monoxide leaks caused them to switch to Tahoes. Now they use the Interceptors as detail/spare cars.Both non and watercooled versions are crap?
