Now throw a duck call on the blow off valve.
It's stupid easy to make these chirp...the factory BOV's just recirc into the intake. You cap the intake pipe where the BOV hose was and hose clamp a duck call or train whistle or whatever you want.

Not my car running rich every shift
Would that matter on a MAP car though...I agree on a MAF car, that's already metered the air, but on the MAP car it's recirc'ing to before the turbo

I'm aware. I owned a 13 SHO for a couple years. Venting the valves was the first thing I did. I put duck calls on both of them for a few days. The looks from people were great. Kinda want to put one on the f150.

In a MAF car, it creates a sudden rich condition when shifting/when the BOV opens, it's lost pre-metered air, whereas recirc'ing, it gets put right back into the intake post-MAF.

On a MAP car, like the EcoBoost, it shouldn't matter, because the MAP sensor is reading manifold pressure instead of measuring airflow.

Oh hey it's you... I've been obsessing about this PTU... my fluid was OK, I plan to change it again at next oil change.... But I'm thinking of filling it with diesel and driving it around, then servicing it again and again....

What miles and was it ever serviced? How did you know it was puking?
I never serviced it, could have been before I bought it. Started flinging a very thick black goo all over the back of the engine and trans, was at about 130k?

Yeah I assumed it was never done. There didn’t seem to be a rhyme or reason to the failures and non-failures, even guys that were doing services still had failures, and other guys hasn’t done anything and lasted 200k.

That's mostly water. It will catch more water when it's cold out. Water won't hurt anything.


I think the internet way over-reacts to the PTU thing. Some guys change it will every oil change will is silly, IMO. If Ford's "lifetime" fluid breaks down and looks more like dirt than oil, then the PTU is toast. But if you change it occasionally and the fluid you take out is still liquidly, I bet everything's OK.

Unless your PTU has a drain plug, getting all of the oil out is difficult. Change what you can and don't stress about it. If you flush it with diesel, makes sure you can get it all out. I can only get about 8 ounces out of mine without a drain plug.

I was back under there today to install a new vent on the PTU. I've never seen this style vent, it's a tube. All the others I've seen are the typical crushed stamped metal cap.. Hmm... Wonder if this is a reman unit already being the fact the fluid that came out was very ok and this new vent
