SSM 47576 – 2015-2018 Edge – 2.0L EcoBoost – Rattle Noise And Cracked Flexplate
Some 2015-2018 Edge vehicles equipped with a 2.0L EcoBoost engine may exhibit a rattle noise at idle.
This may be due to a flexplate crack around the crankshaft.
To resolve this concern, verify that the flexplate is cracked around the crankshaft using the inspection plate and a mirror.
If the flexplate is cracked, replace the transmission fluid pump, flexplate, flexplate bolts and torque converter.
Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 303-01A and 307-01.
When replacing the torque converter, ensure that the torque converter pilot hub is lubricated with Multi-Purpose Grease XL-5-A (ESB-M1C930-B) prior to reassembly.
For claiming, use causal part 6375 and applicable labor operations in Section 06 of the Service Labor Time Standards (SLTS) Manual.
