Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.
What is the year make model of it please?
I see, thanks.
Are there any trouble codes stored?
Does the vehicle seem to have any running problems?
Winter weather has been a little rough this year, I know. See if you can get any codes out of it and if possible, see if there is a good amount of suction on the breather end of the PCV system, (at idle). We see some trouble out of the electrically heated PCV valves when the temps are very low, (they sometimes freeze or don't heat up fast enough). With the engine at idle the breather hose should be able to hold a small box top, (like from an oil filter) just to be sure it's working good. Thanks
Does it have the electrically heated PCV valve or water heated?
Also, is there a fairly good amount of suction at the breather hose?
I see, thanks. I haven't run into any that would do that, (yet) and if the PCV valve is new and has good suction, there shouldn't be that much blowby to allow oil into the air filter.
I will opt out and open it back up. Please DON’T REPLY to this post as that will lock the question back to me, someone should be along shortly, I’m sure, thanks and sorry I wasn’t able to help with it.

Thanks for doing all these inspections and tests for me. Based on them it looks like the fact the vehicle is setting up so often the piston rings and cylinder walls may be damaged causing excessive crank case pressure from blow by. I suggest a compression test be ran on all cylinders at this time. Can you let me know those results.
