OK i'm getting drips of oil too in my garage... Was wondering what it was.. I guess a trip to the garage for myself as well.Just noticed a puddle of black oil under car. It flows right down onto the engine oil drain plug so i thought it was that. But looking up you can see it at the shaft seal on the tranni. Guess i call dealer tomorrow morning. My first American car since the 90's.
Just got my car back on Monday for this. Needed a new PTU as the bearing where the passenger-side axle shaft plugged into the PTU was shot. Everything had to come out to get to the PTU... 6500mi. I noticed the exact same coal black fluid on my drain plug during my 2nd (at 5,000mi) oil change.Just did my first oil change (2nd for the car) and my PTU is leaking at 4200 miles. I know it's not the oil pan because the leak is coal black. The engine oil was just dark honey colored. Taking it in Monday.
Me too, and I bleed Ford blue big time. But I've had issues with all 5 out of 6 of our new Fords since 2014 (2 mustangs, 2 fusions, and 2 escapes). My next car might be BMW or Kia , neither of which I think are ultra reliable either, but I don' think they are worse and Ford abandon me on perf sedans, so what other choice do I have. I did buy 8 yr 125K extended warantee............just For the first time in 25 yrs I'm starting to lose a bit of confidence in the brand. Hoping it's just that you mostly hear the bad on the forum and the actual numbers of these problems are relatively small.
