I kept reading that service report like...Got the car back from the dealer after the timing cover leak fix. We'll see if it actually fixed the problem.
Any more info on those tires (ie size, model & price)? Where did you order? I'm always on the look out for cheap performance tires and I'm wondering if these could beat my go-to Federal RS-RR's.Cheap Chinese Sailun tires did amazing for the price.
That’s the old Intermediary seal you have on your car. New one is CN1Z-7H424-B I think.Changed the oil in preparation for my autocross this weekend. Unfortunately, also found a leak in the intermediate halfshaft PTU seal...

The dealer replaced all the PTU seals at 10K miles under warranty when I got my head gasket recall done. 22K miles later, and it's leaking again... Luckily, haven't hit my 5 years yet (December 2021). So I'll be getting it fixed under warranty AGAIN in the next coming weeks. Fortunately, my next autocross (after this weekend) won't be until October. Hopefully this doesn't continue happening this often after my warranty expires...
That's weird. I found the invoice from the warranty repair, and that updated part number is listed:That’s the old Intermediary seal you have on your car. New one is CN1Z-7H424-B I think.
See post number 2 of this thread:
Has anyone here changed the PTU seal on the passenger driveshaft? Anyone know the part number? I believe the seal has been upgraded since release of the car. Is it just a matter of pullling shaft out, pulling seal... installing seal and putting shaft back in? Seems to be this one: 2016-2018...www.focusrs.org
It sure looks a lot like the old seal to me?
Good catch! It sure looks different. I'll have to have a chat with the dealer then... Thanks for the links!It sure looks a lot like the old seal to me?
Check out this thread:
So attached is a picture if what came out of my PTU for the passenger side and then a picture of what part I was given as a replacement. They look very different and am hoping it's rightwww.focusrs.org
The new seal looks like post #120 in this thread:
So following this a step further, since I am now on my second PTU replacement, new seals twice and a new half shaft ... What seal should have been used that you recommended. Can it still be used and can we get them to install aftermarket in place of the "wrong" seal to use? There's a lot more...www.focusrs.org
how long was each session?Whatever comes with the normal kit from AEM, I think 1.1gal or 4L. I went through 4 3.78L jugs for 5 sessions lol. Madness.
it’s ok I got awd off a few times after hot laps. The car needs more cooling. Oil went to the 3/4 mark but never higher, coolant never rose past Half. You can tell the WMI help keep IAT and EGT’s down
LOL. 🤣The ceramic coating probably doubled the car's value! Lol j/k
