Re: PCV valve hose

what I did was to leave the existing plastic piece in the intake and attach the new PCV and boot to that. So cut the zip tie and then you can separate the two. Zip tie back together.

Re: Hub replacement

You should be fine. The first time I changed hubs was on my '02 4x4 Ranger. It was fairly easy. The size of your socket/wrench might make a difference. It's really tight to get them in their on...

Re: Could someone help identify this oil leak?

I'm just going to leave it that way for now. It will be too expensive to have a mechanic do what is needed to get at it.

Front: 80W90

Re: Advice for a cargo light?

Take off your 3rd brake light and check the wiring first.
I have an '02 Edge. There is only wiring for the brake light up there. On each side it's just dead space. No sockets, no wiring.
