Hi All, 


Heard many of horror stories of the SHOs PTU fluid getting extremely gummed up, and I wondered if it were the same case for the MKS. I know that it's quite a siphoning job to get the fluid out (and back in).


Does anyone know if the 2013 MKS Ecoboost has a drain plug to at least get the fluid out?

I don't know about the 2013+ models but sucking out the old fluid through the fill hole and refilling it is not a bad job at all.  It can be a bit messy but not difficult.   It takes longer to get the car up on ramps and make sure it is level than it does to actually do the job.  A hoist would be nice but most of us do not have one of those in our garages!
