Ford Edge Technical Service Bulletins (TSB)

TSB 10-22-4 – AWD vehicles – Shudder/chatter/vibration on turns or thump/clunk noise on light acceleration – 6F35 Transmission
2010 Ford Fusion – 2010 Ford Taurus – 2010 Ford Edge – 2010 Ford Flex – 2010 Mercury Milan – 2010 Lincoln MKS – 2010 Lincoln MKZ – 2010 Lincoln MKT – 2010 Lincoln MKX
Problem – Certain vehicles built between 10/1/2009-12/31/2009 equipped with all-wheel-drive, may experience a shutter or vibration in the driveline during a tight turn. They may also experience a thump or clunk noise during light acceleration. These symptoms may also occur under 40 mph (64 KM/H), when driving uphill or towing under heavy acceleration.
Solution – Installing a properly remanufactured PTU (Power Transfer Unit— a simplified transfer case) may solve this problem.

TSB 11-12-10 – Sluggish acceleration from 0-5 mph (0-8 km/h) followed by harsh bump or slip on takeoff – 6F35 Transmission & 6F50 Transmission
2010 – 2011 Ford Taurus – 2009 – 2011 Ford Edge – 2009 – 2011 Ford Flex – 2011 Ford Explorer – 2010 – 2011 Lincoln MKS – 2009 – 2011 Lincoln MKX – 2010 – 2011 Lincoln MKT
Problem – Some vehicles may experience sluggish acceleration or a hesitation feel during a rolling stop, followed by a harsh bump or slip feeling. This can be caused by a design flaw in the 6F35 valve body / 6F50 valve body.
Solution – On transmissions originally built for Mercon LV transmission fluid (listed on the dipstick), the valve body will have to be modified by deleting one hole in the valve body separator plate, and removing the check ball in the area of the deleted hole. If this modification is not performed properly, the transmission may experience a loss of reverse or a 2-3 shift flare.

TSB 15-0047 / 17-2219 – Push button start – Shift to Park or Transmission Not In Park message – discharged battery – unable to remove key
2011 – 2017 Ford Edge – 2011 – 2017 Ford Explorer – 2011 – 2017 Ford Flex – 2011 – 2017 Ford Police Interceptor Sedan – 2011 – 2017 Ford Taurus – 2011 – 2016 Lincoln MKS – 2011 – 2017 Lincoln MKT – 2011 – 2015 Lincoln MKX
Problem – Vehicles equipped with a floor shift selector lever and push button start, may display a ‘Shift To Park’ or ‘Transmission Not In Park’ message, even though the transmission is actually in Park. It may also not be possible to remove the transmitter key, and the battery may discharge due to the warning message remaining illuminated.
Solution – Install new park detect switch

TSB 10-21-2 / 10-17-4 – Slipping, 5th gear starts from stop, PRNDL display error, backup camera on while vehicle is in Drive – 6F50 Transmission & 6F55 Transmission
2009 – 2011 Ford Taurus – 2009 – 2011 Ford Edge – 2009 – 2011 Ford Flex – 2009 – 2011 Lincoln MKS – 2009 – 2011 Lincoln MKT – 2009 – 2011 Lincoln MKX
Problem – Certain vehicles may intermittently experience slipping, 5th gear starts from a stop, the electronic PRNDL display may flash errors, and the backup camera may be on while the vehicle is in Drive.
Solution – Install new Ford transmission range sensor / TR sensor.

Can I drive with a transmission problem?

If your Ford Edge can still make it up and down the road, you might say “It’s fine, I’ll just drive it until I can get it fixed”. But that is not always a good idea, depending on the symptoms. You see, there are a lot of (very expensive) moving parts inside of a transmission, and if something isn’t right, continuing to drive with a transmission problem could damage something else.

How often does a Ford Edge transmission need to be replaced?

The overall lifespan of a Ford Edge transmission largely depends on how well it was maintained. Factory design flaws also factor into this equation, along with how/how hard you drive. But on average, we’ve seen the Ford Edge transmission last for between 130,000-180,000 miles. A high quality replacement transmission however, can last considerably longer if all of the factory design flaws have been addressed and the vehicle has been maintained.

How are Ford Edge transmission issues diagnosed?

It is fairly easy to guesstimate what the root cause of your Ford Edge transmission problems might be, but you won’t truly know unless you have the right tools and experience. A good mechanic or transmission repair center will be able to connect your truck to a computer and find out which diagnostic trouble codes (DTC’s) have been stored. Once they know what to look for, they can perform a visual inspection to verify the problem.

How is a Ford Edge transmission replaced?

In order to replace your Ford Edge transmission, the truck has to be lifted from the ground in order to gain access to all of the parts that will need to be unbolted. Then the transmission can be lowered to the ground (typically with a transmission jack), so the new transmission can be installed. Once it is in place, for the 6F, the vehicle PCM will have to be reprogrammed / reflashed to accept the new transmission using the latest solenoid strategy ID.

How to Solve Ford Edge Transmission Problems

Solution A: Buy a Used Ford Edge Transmission

The quickest way to fix your transmission problems is to simply buy a used transmission or used transmission. These can be found at most junk yards, and they often come with a 30-90 day warranty. However, there’s no way to determine the actual condition of the internal components, so you could be spending a bunch of money to have the exact same problems. Plus, that warranty only covers the transmission if it’s defective, not the labor costs that you’ll have to pay.

Solution B: Buy a Rebuilt Ford Edge Transmission

Another option would be a rebuilt transmission or rebuilt transmission. A local repair shop will remove your transmission, then install a bunch of new parts during the rebuild. The problem here is, the skills and experience of each transmission rebuilder will vary widely from shop to shop, so you could have problems from something that wasn’t adjusted properly. And the 1-2 year warranty might only cover you at certain transmission repair shops, in a specific geographical area.

Solution C: Buy a Remanufactured Ford Edge Transmission

Many owners depend on their vehicle to commute and get things done. Their gasoline engines are designed to go 100’s of thousands of miles, so it makes sense to invest in a remanufactured transmission.

My 210 Ford Edge has sluggish acceleration which makes a sort of tapping sound. My mechanic told me to get rid of the car all together because the problem could be a money pit. I reall like this car an wish I could just get it fixed at an affordable price.

I just bought a 2018 (rental) the first it’s very sluggish getting on the fwy, then it goes fine?. Second going from a stop to moving fwd there’s a clunk the rear of suv drops then gets in gear and goes fine.?


I have an 08 edge with 125 thousand kilometers
It make a loud clunk occasionally when accelerating over 120. On warm days it sometimes will not go into forward or reverse but car cools car runs like a charm. Tow truck driver thought it could be transfer case.

My 2015 edge slams into reverse when I first start it

When driving at 70 mph on interstate the abs esp and wrench lights come on. I feel no difference in driving and hear nothing. when I get off of exit and slow to about 45 the lights begin to go out,usually abs first, then esp and a few minutes later wrench. no codes come up when checked.
Then the first couple of times I use the brakes they get a stutter and then fine.
All fluid levels are good. Any ideas.

It is a 2017 Edge

I’m having a problem with my Ford Edge 2008, it has around 165000 miles , the wrench light come on and I took it to the shop They did an inspection and a code p2704 came on,so they told me I need a new transmission and the cost to repair is $2500, Does that sound ok?


My 2008 Edge has the same thing lately. The wrench light comes on, the car drives slowly and it strains, then it stutters for a while before working properly again.
If has 180,000 miles. If this is gonna cost me $2500 I’m gonna cut bait and get rid of it. The value of the vehicle isn’t $2500 st this point.


My 2019 edge ST clunks when putting it in reverse from park or from reverse to drive I am fully stopped and the problem is intermittent

Matthew Shane Mahon

I have same problem


Me too anybody find a solution??

Edward Malone

Most likely universal joint


They dont have u-joints. These cars use a non greasable non serviceable CV joint style drive shaft.

I had an issue with my Ford Edge 2013 SEL with 77k miles (recently purchased.) It would take a long time to engage in first gear when going from Park to Drive. In the event I was stopped at a light, a tenth of the time when I pressed the gas it would slip out of gear. The solution was to have the transmission rebuilt (thank god for the extended warranty.)
