The rain came earlier than expected. I only got the ptu/transfer case fluid changed. The rear Differential will have to wait for another day.

I should take care of some of the rust. But that is a story for another day. At 188,870 miles, the transmission got 3 1/2 Quarts, the Ptu got 12 ish ounces, and the tires got rotated. Though, I probably need new front snow tires. The grease boots on the tie rod ends and stabilizer links seemed pretty packed from the spring.

what did i do to my escape today..........

it is more like what did my escape do to me today.......

for the past 2 months i have been wrestling with the dreaded no crank, no start issue.
so i let the car rest for 2 days while i researched yet more possible scenarios for repair. i am beginning to suspect the PCM as it is the controlled ground signal from it that completes the circuit to energize the starter relay and engage the starter.

my issue in a nutshell is that the starter relay is not getting energized to switch the power from the battery to the starter.
