    dont know what front cover is but on the side of the engine with the oil drain bolt is all splashed with oil with the bottom six bolts looking like they might be leaking.

    Don't know what happend to the photos that show this much better.

    Problem motor has only had 8 thousand miles on it and already leaking the first one had bad bearrings there should be no issue on this one not so soon

    Don't think the dealership can blame the oil... that would be absurd.

    If it didn' have oil, it would mot be leaking. So yes it is the oils fault.

    Front cover = timing cover. How you access the timing chains, coolant pump, and oil pump.

    Here is a diagram of the FC from a 2009 Edge as example, you can see the bottom bolts and see why I am thinking the sealant may be the issue. Oil travels though, you have to check everything from top down.

    That is much blacker than others I have seen. Usually it is like water with a slight brown discoloration but you can see thru it. Looks like you have a lot blow by in your engine.

    Replaced the front door speakers today. First door took an hour, second door took half an hour. Now these two speakers overshadow the others with much better sound so...the rear speakers will be next.

    Mine may be boring...but helps with my OCD. I got a Sandisk Cruser Fit thumb drive for my music. The whole thing is only about the size of a fingernail and doesn't stick out like a normal thumb drive when plugged into the USB ports in the console. I figure it'll be harder to break this one off...and it looks better, too. Yeah...OCD should be my initials...

    Sorry to hear, glad you are not seriously hurt
    I have read reviews saying the SanDisk Fit drives did not like continuous reading, like music playing would do. They overheat and fail early. Although I had one for over a year with no issue. I have a Samsung Fit now. It does get in the way less and I'm less worried about breaking it off.

    Rear diff fluid changed and PTU drained and filled again. Rear ends fluid wasn’t bad at all. PTU still needs some love

    Good info...I'll keep an eye on it...

    4 wheel alignment ($79) two weeks post H&R install. I did NOT need to use my SPC adjustable rear camber bolts.
    Left was 1.8
    Right was 1.6
    The only thing out of spec was the toe.
    The mgr told me to keep the bolts as the springs will continue to settle a little more.
    The car feels, drives, rolls a lot more easily. More pleasurable to drive !
