Why does one choose to get sick in the middle of summer!! Z   :doctor:

sounds like a bad choice!
as I sit here with my shoulder and bicep in a sling and of no use for me for the next 12 weeks. Good news is I now can wipe my azz with my left hand (right handed) without it looking like a 5th grade art painting.
This is now a few bad choices! As I could have done it last summer  :hmmm:

Brother the struggle is real. I had my right arm basically rebuilt from the shoulder down in feb. I had to use my left for roughly 8 weeks. The first 2 weeks were so bad, I basically gave up and just went in the shower afterwards.

Oh yea the dr told me he was performing surgery again 3 days after what I had done. I find it hard to believe it took me 6 weeks before I could even hold a pen. And that was with PT. Monsoon season for real. We are getting hammered in NH today with thunderstorms.

Been brutal here too with rain yesterday and today.  Yesterday, we had lightning and thunder, thought for sure the MOAB had exploded right above our heads, LOL.

I have been on the fence in regards to this Modern Billet Chrome Underhood Dress-up Kit and purely for Aesthetics!
The only issue is it does require a bit of modification AFAIK!

I think Ford Racing also makes a similar alternative and might take that route since Underhood products are very limited on this platform! Dunno. Z

Dealer called and said my Explorer is done. A leaky PTU was one of 4 concerns I brought it in for. They said the leaking PTU was re-sealed and didnít need replacement. Anybody know what determines reseal vs replace? I had always seen that the dealer tends to replace at any sign of leakage, and rarely heard of them re-sealing.

Since itís a warranty claim, is the MoCo trying to get me past the warranty period with a lower repair bill?

The ptu has 3 seals + the vent.  3 of them can leak ptu fluid.  1 can leak trans fluid.  So it depends which seal was leaking.  Internally, if an idler bearing assembly is determined to be at fault, they have a kit to replace it without replacing the ptu.

Cool, thanks, Z! From what I could tell it was only the rear seal at the driveshaft that was leaking. From Ford Tech Makulocoís videos it was the least common one, but he did comment that it leaks ďoften enough.Ē :)

My SHO was leaking transmission fluid on my garage floor after only having 300 miles on it. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the inner PTU seal under warranty and not the whole PTU. I wouldn't be to concerned unless it stated leaking again.

In my "experience"/data gathering, it is usually a leak at the vent, a leak at the PTU-axle seal, a leak at the PTU-transmission seal, or a leak at the PTU-driveshaft seal, in descending order.  The PTU-driveshaft seal is WAY down the list of probabilities on our family of AWD systems.  More likely that the rear pinion seal at the RDU will leak, or the carrier bearings of the driveshaft will disintegrate :)

I didnít see anything from the vent. That was my first guess that it puked up top and ran down, but it looked dry on top. I only saw it around the driveshaft/rear seal, and the service rep confirmed thatís where they found the leak. I first changed the PTU fluid at 30k, and every 15k after that, and it still wasnít enough to keep it from leaking. I also wonder if the other dealer somehow damaged the rear PTU seal when they replaced the timing chain. They pulled the whole motor/trans/PTU for that service...

Iíll keep playing the game for now, but unfortunately for me, the Exploder will be traded in on a minivan just before the extended warranty runs out.

It is possible that the seal was damaged during the timing chain service.  Check the invoice to see if the seal is listed on there.  That particular seal has to be marked/indexed at the time the driveshaft is removed, and probably was not during this service.
