They also informed me of black fluids in the power steering and brakes. Be aware, the transfer case isn't as easy as the differential. That's next on my list. It's actually not that hard. I feel like I got more in than came out, but maybe not. . This interval may be up to one year or 10,000 miles 16,000 km.
Thanks mharvey for the offer. Now I want to do a fluid change on my Flex so I was wondering If there was a difference between the units whereas I may able to do an extract on the Flex. Some folks report oil comes pouring out. I used a vacuum extractor, then refilled to fill plug. On my 02 the rear diff gasket was leaking a little.
I truly feel as if I have been played a fool. The other one is in the rear cover and you fill it to bottom of the hole. It states to fill it just below the fill hole so I figured as I was pumping the fluid in, once it reached that mark it would start coming out under the hose but it never did. But when I marked the container at the old fluid line, and refilled the case with that amount, I had to add quite a bit more. I sucked out my fluid with a Pela 6000 oil extractor. Vehicles driven with moderate to heavy load or used for towing, driven in mountainous or off-road conditions or that are prone to extended idling or extended hot or cold operation fall into the severe maintenance schedule and should expect the message prompting them to change their oil to appear approximately every 5,000-7,499 miles 8,000-11,999 km. I would check the fluid level.
I took it to the dealership and they tell me it is because I replaced the two tires they kept telling me to change and not all four. Tis a sad day indeed. Loosen that top bolt, but don't remove it right away so you don't drop it in the pan. Posted on Oct 31, 2009 You must have a 4 Wheel-drive. The lubricant must be even with the bottom of the fill opening.
Differentials are fairly indestructible but if run without oil will fail. And if I can help it, the last Ford anyone that I know will buy. I have always been told how reliable this car is and now 2 pricey things need to be replaced within a 4 months period. It was a misprint on my part, the engine is a V6, not a 6 liter.

Drill and tap, extract, or displace it? Even up to the hole, there should be plenty of oil in there to be sloshed up around all the gears and get to the bearings and not get hot. A top-of-the-line Titanium Escape with a 2. I drove to my next location and the noise persisted. I put 75w140 valvoline syn. As soon as I get an internet hosting site, I'll post some pictures of the placement of the relevent fill and drain holes in this thread in case someone on the site needs a visual reference and stumbles across it. I'm glad that I decided to dump the fluids sooner rather than later, as there was tons of metal flake in both fluids.
The power steering was effected when part of the power steering system fell out of the car when the vehicle was put in park. I have done research about this and other owners from 2017 with 4wd have been having this problem to an uncertain end not knowing if this is going to damage the Escape in a few years or in a year. The manual shows to refill with a max. It does have 'intelligent 4wd' where when the Escape is driving on normal roads, the front wheels are only active, but then all four wheels are activated when going on rougher roads. Then remove the last bolt and the pan.
Here is where the difference comes in as to how fluid much to add. The fluid that came out was actually not bad at all. I just went to a Mr. I kept hearing a knocking noise. I didn't change or refill the fluid because I only have a liter on hand and it states to refill with a max of 1. I called the dealership back and expressed my concerns. I'd forgotten to get some sort of pump, so in the end I ran a piece of hose from on high down to the fill hole, and filled it until it ran out.
