Strange Smell


Asked by Blueoval07 Feb 16, 2009 at 10:51 PM about the 2007 Ford Edge SEL AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've noticed a strange smell almost like a solvent or chemical smell...  when I stop at a light, when I pull out it goes away. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem, if so, what is it?

It's no big deal , I think thats your Power Transfer Unit low on fluid , they had a recall on them I think if you needed it , and it's covered under warranty if you need a new one . They had problems early on because they had seal leaks and the fluid would go out, the unit would heat up , and you get the smell. You have an 07 ' as I noticed ( like myself ) and I had that problem, but wasn't too bad, was a matter of getting it topped up ( came low out of the factory for some reason or another ) . I hope it's not something else however...
