Re: What did you do to your Escape today?

April 30th, 2019, 5:08 pm

Saturday I did my first oil change and installed a Fumoto oil valve with extension (my commuter Ford Escort has one, and they work great). Got some time off before my next job starts, so I have PTU and rear diff fluid changes to do this week with all Royal Purple components. Trying to do a once-over with all of the fluids before summer comes; coolant and trans fluid in the near future as well.
Picked up a Class 3 Curt hitch on craigslist 2 weeks ago for $40 and should be able to install before the week's end. Will be looking for a cargo carrier for hunting season when the time comes. Fuel economy is great with my '11 AWD V6 so far. Should be picking up some AT tires before fall.

Installed my Class 3 Reese hitch this morning. Looks great.
Turns out the rear diff oil is brand new, so I won't touch it for now.

It was not today but was on Saturday I made a trip to the local Pep Boys to get the darn 9mm allen wrench I needed & replaced the front brake pads.
