I’m going to try to post video of my project to replace the cooling fan on a Ford Edge. Ford gets about $800.00 or more for this. It happens pretty regularly, just go Google it. The parts online are about $200 – $300. So, with some work, you can save a handy $500.00. However, it’s not simple, quick, or easy. Ford Edge Cooling Fan Replacement
This is part 1; it goes through the symptoms, and a quick look at the new fan. Some initial tips; the symptoms here were that the fan ran at HIGH SPEED whenever it was turned on. It never would slow down to low speed. This entire fan is controlled by the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) or “computer”. Ford Edge Cooling Fan Replacement

Well, I wanted to change air filter on Ford Edge, so I shot some video. Here is how to change the air filter on a Ford Edge. The video is at the bottom. Now I can run for 4 years on this filter, and the Edge will be wore out by then. It’s supposed to be cleaned once a year. Minimal maintenance.
AMSOIL Ea Air Filters represent a major breakthrough in filtration technology. The revolutionary nanofiber technology used in AMSOIL Ea Filters captures more dirt, holds more dirt and allows better air flow than conventional air filters. AMSOIL Ea Filters improve engine performance and help engines last longer.
AMSOIL Ea Air Filters rank among the most efficient filters available to the auto/light-truck market. Ea Air Filters’ synthetic nanofiber media removes 5 times more dust than traditional cellulose media alone and 50 times more dust than wet gauze filter media. AMSOIL Ea Air Filters have a service life of 100,000 miles or four years, whichever comes first.
Better Air Flow
AMSOIL Ea Air Filters allow more airflow than filters that use cellulose media alone. Cellulose fibers are larger than nanofibers, and have larger spaces between the fibers, causing contaminants to load in the depth of the media and plug the airflow path, which results in higher restriction and less capacity. The synthetic nanofibers in Ea Filter media have submicron diameters and small interfiber spaces, which result in more contaminants being captured on the surface of the media and lower restriction.

AMSOIL Ea Air Filters hold up to 2.5 times more contaminants than cellulose air filters. Since the nanofibers in the media are so small there are more pores per square inch, allowing for higher dirt-holding capacity and lower pressure drop when compared to cellulose filter media alone. Thinner media fibers produce more uniform pore size distribution, improving the filter’s overall quality and ability to capture and retain particles. Testing shows that Ea Air Filters hold 15 times more contaminants than a wet gauze-type filter.
Cleanable – Longer Life
When cleaned according to AMSOIL specifications and used in normal service, AMSOIL Ea Air Filters are guaranteed for 100,000 miles or four years, whichever comes first. Ea Air Filters remain effective for 25,000 miles or one year before requiring cleaning. This coincides with the AMSOIL 25,000-mile/one-year motor oil drain interval, adding even more convenience for motorists by consolidating routine maintenance. (See below for cleaning instructions.)

AMSOIL Ea Air Filters provide superior air filtration for vehicles in the auto/light truck market.
Ea Air Filters should be cleaned every year or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. Carefully remove the filter from the housing. Clean the housing with a shop towel, being careful not to knock contaminants into the air inlet. Filters can be cleaned by carefully vacuuming the filter media on the dirty side, or by holding the filter with one hand and carefully blowing the filter media at a 45-degree angle on the clean side using low-pressure shop air (15-20 lbs. psi).
AMSOIL Ea Air Filters are guaranteed for four years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. The guarantee applies only if the filter has been serviced according to AMSOIL recommendations. In off-road, frequently dusty or other severe-duty applications, clean and change more often as determined by operating conditions or as indicated by restriction gauge.
AMSOIL warrants that its filtration products are fit for use according to AMSOIL’s recommendations and warrants its products to be free of defective materials, design and workmanship.
To determine the fuel economy benefits of its synthetic lubricants, Amsoil conducted the industry-standard SAE J1321 In-Service Fuel Economy Test Procedure.
First, the baseline rate of fuel consumption was determined for two nearly identical Kenworth® T800B diesel trucks and 53’ trailers from Ford® Motor Company’s* Rawsonville, MI fleet. Texaco brand conventional lubricants were installed in each vehicle’s engine, transmission, and front and rear differentials. Both trucks simultaneously completed runs on a 40-mile test route representative of real-world driving conditions beginning and ending at Ford’s Rawsonville fleet maintenance facility.
Fuel consumption was recorded from each vehicle’s engine control module (ECM)
following each run. Although both vehicles were operated using the same conventional
lubricants and according to the same procedures, the test truck consumed an average
of 0.37 more gallons of fuel per run compared to the control truck.
The test truck alone was then thoroughly flushed of its conventional lubricants prior to
installing AMSOIL synthetic lubricants. Both trucks simultaneously completed runs on
the test route according to the same procedures used during the baseline segment. Fuel
consumption data was again recorded from the ECMs. The switch to AMSOIL synthetic
lubricants eliminated the 0.37-gallon difference in fuel consumption per baseline
segment run, resulting in 6.54 percent improved fuel economy.
Based on the assessment of 24 published reviews and test drives, the 2012 Ford Focus has the number 4 ranking out of 33 affordable small cars. The Focus is completely re-designed for 2012, and up to now the reviews are upbeat and positive. This is due not only to the wonderful echange to both the exterior and interior, but it is simply more fun to drive.
2012 Ford Focus
The Ford Focus was obviously a preferred car when it very first came out in 2000, but it lost its appeal with the improvements of its competition. At this point, some 11 years later, Ford is convinced its Focus will again become one of the top choices among smaller cars. They realize the competition is serious, what with the Chevy Cruze, the Honda Fit and the Mazda 3, but they’re more than ready to take them on. Ford’s hopes can be mostly based on all the high tech improvements to the interior of the Focus. Among the latest features are a rear view camera, a semi-automatic parallel parking system together with their keyless ignition and entry systems.
2012 Ford Focus
There’s also a new configuration of 5-way touch pads on the steering wheel, resulting in a whole new driver connect technology. On higher-end versions you’ll additionally find an 8″ touch screen. 2012 Ford Focus
You will find two more features previously commonly found exclusively on higher-end models like the Ford Edge that are now included, MyFord and MyKey. Course-plotting, entertainment, and communication are built-in by MyFord into a touch screen console. When your teenager is driving the car, MyKey definitely will restrict the speed of the vehicle and the volume of the stereo as a safety feature. Another exciting function for a car of this category is its torque vectoring control. This feature is great for driving enthusiasts because it boosts vehicle stability by adding brake force to the wheels during turns. 2012 Ford Focus
The completely new appearance of the Focus’ exterior has received kudos from the industry. It is sportier than the earlier models and also more intense, to be more like the Honda Fit and Ford Fiesta. Nevertheless, the question is if the Focus will survive once the great reviews and all the excitement have faded. You’ll notice quite a few alternatives in the small car market, so no one will be able to be sure what will happen with this car. They have three principal competitors in terms of features and utility, as well as affordability – The Honda Fit, the Hyundai Elantra and the Chevy Cruze. 2012 Ford Focus
When the Ford Focus may be a car you are looking at, you should check out all of the competition first. Even so, the focus is the best car for many of us, what with its 2012 redesign and new features. It might not be as large as you need, but it’s certainly cost effective.

The Dual Remote Filtration System (BMK23) was installed on a 2008 Ford Expedition equipped with a 5.4L V8. Since it’s 2WD, there is a lot of room for mounting in front of the axle, behind the front bumper. The kit comes with all the necessary hardware, but I custom made part of the bracket in order to fi t it where I wanted. A spin-on adapter was used to attach the feed and return lines to the engine. Installing the system behind the front bumper requires no more than 18” of hose for either line. The EaO15 Full Flow Filter and EaBP90 By-Pass Filter used sit well above the frame rails and are easy to get to. System capacity increased from seven quarts to almost nine.

Ford issued an “automotive maintenance myths” statement March 12 that labels the idea that cars need oil changes every three months or 3,000 miles as a myth, though fast lubes caution that such an interval is still smart for many vehicles driven under severe conditions.
“That used to be true, but not with newer cars,” Ford stated. “Because of synthetic oils that don’t break down as quickly, consumers actually don’t need oil changes as often – more like every 5,000 to 7,500 miles – or even 10,000 on the new 2011 Mustang depending on your driving habits.” The 2011 Mustang features a die-cast aluminum deep-sump oil pan that Ford claims provides for up to 10,000-mile oil change intervals
The company’s current recommendation is 7,500 miles per oil change, said Ford Car Marketing Manager Robert Parker. “Special operating conditions are 5,000 miles, 6 months or 200 hours of engine operation, whichever occurs first, and that’s for severe usage like taxis and things of that nature,” Parker told Lube Report.
Ford noted that there may be two recommendations for oil change intervals – one for normal driving and one for hard use – and advised checking one’s owner’s manual to be sure. The c
