    If someone could show some pics of the vent pipe that would be great. The other posts that show the vent pipe are no longer available. Also...to drain the ptu oil nothing needs to be re installed over can access from underneath?.....the vent pipe is for re-filling.

    I just had my PTU Fluid changed. I purchased my 2014 PP SHO used with 80,000 miles. I was reading these forums, and was concerned. I found a good mechanic, to change it for me, its about a two hour job. Not that difficult if you have all the tools and a lift. Lift car and turn wheels full lock to drivers side. You have to remove the catalytic convertor to do the change. I watched the whole process, should have taken pics. This was his first PTU oil change for a Taurus, he used his computer and got instructions from Ford and looked at a couple of Youtube videos. All in under 2 hours. $140, worth it to me. And for the record the oil flowed out easily, 12 ounces. It was dark, a little metal shavings, but not sludge. So now I will change again at 15-20k since I did not see any issues, and not to overspend on changes.
