This is the second oneof these that I have seen. And this next one looks like he has the tubes hooked up backwards?

Seen another post where the guy had two. One on the clean side and one on the dirty side. He did say if you have only one to put it on the dirty side. Have no idea what that means. Am still on the fence about installing one.

I’m wondering the same thing. I don’t know if it is worth it completely. What I have seen it is a good idea for longevity keeping the back of the valves clean not recirculating the crap back in to be burned. The two videos I listed have the in and out of the catch cans going different.

Most of the kits are for the clean side line not the PVC dirty line. But with a longer hose maybe the kit would work on the PVC side too?

Same here my ranger had the 2.3 EB I never did and it was fine for the 3 years I had it. I did read it is good to run 93 in these every once in a while and drive spirted to clean stuff out. How much truth there is IDK I just feel like if there was a need for one ford would have put one on. That is my 2 cents

They actually recommend top tier gas which is a fuel quality program meant to insure the gas has the right detergents so it's less likely to cause buildups.

I hope you're not expecting the designers of these things to be automotive engineers. If you are doing this, you only need one on the PCV line, the concept is very simple. I really don't know if you need one or not, but if it's a simple 1 line one it can't hurt. There is no need to put one on a new custom oil fill cap, pressure under the valve cover is the same as the crankcase, and the ones I've seen don't give you another PCV valve, which is necessary - you don't need to pull a vacuum on your crankcase. Cars don't really backfire any more, but backfire protection is also part of the purpose of PCV valves.

And please for the love of God don't buy one that is vented.

Ford also states that the transmission fluid on my 2014 FX four is good for The lifetime of the transmission. So when the transmission fails I guess that’s the lifetime. I change all my fluids way before they tell me too, and even when they told me not to. Just plain common sense.

Is the PCV side then considered the “dirty” side? I would like to install one of these if it offers even the slightest bit of increase in engine lifespan.

I don't know why there would be a difference

I would know even less I assure you! I’m just asking because there’s so much “information” available online etc, it’s hard to know what’s the best option.
I’ve seen people installing a dual catch can system even.
The last vehicle I had suffered serious carbon buildup, and I had to replace the engine. If there’s an optimal, or “correct” way to utilize a catch can system in the maverick in order to increase the life of the engine I would definitely like to implement it in mine.
Your knowledge/experience is appreciated and welcomed!
