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.

Oil change today. 196,573 miles on my 2008 mariner v6 base. Also changed my pcv valve.

I had bought one a few years ago to replace when I did spark plugs. After inhibitions, and misplacements, the moons aligned and was able to replace it without removing the upper intake.

Had a noise in the r/s front which turned out to be a bad wheel bearing. I removed the knuckle & took it to a local machine shop to have the old one pressed out & a new one pressed in. I am going to re-install the knuckle tomorrow.
