Transmission Noise problems of the 2007 Ford Edge

Two problems related to transmission noise have been reported for the 2007 Ford Edge.

car   Transmission Noise problem 1
Failure Date: 10/01/2012

My 2007 Ford Edge had been having what people refer to as a slipped transmission. At first it would not accelerate, and it would only go in reverse not forward. I turned it off and on twice and then it seemed to operate normally. I took it into the dealership the next day and I was first told there was no issue, then it happened again, this time it would also do a violent jerk as if I'd been rear-ended. The service dept replaced the computer chip (not sure which one but something to do with the transmission). A couple of weeks later it again failed to accelerate but this time it would not restart without a loud grinding noise. After towing it to the dealership, the transmission was completely replaced. However it has since started doing the exact same thing, bumping as if the car had been rear-ended as the car is in motion, in various circumstances. There are numerous complaints about the same issue on different forums. . Read more...

car   Transmission Noise problem 2
Failure Date: 12/06/2011

The ptu (power take off unit) on my awd Ford Edge is leaking and needs to be replaced- per the dealership- it smells and the transmission clunks/ makes noise. These are all known issues to Ford and they refuse to fix the issues. The foam seal between my windshield and dash board is coming out of the gap and causing visibility issues as it is distracting- another Ford known issue with multiple TSB's and they refuse to help without me paying out of pocket for their issues.
