Does 2.0 Need a Catch Can?

Recommended Posts

 I have read where in a lot of turbo engines need a catch can. Recently there was a thread on a Ford 2.7 engine needing a catch can. So my question is does the Ford Edge 2019 with a 2.0 engine need a catch can? Sometimes I take very short trips adding to my concern.

 And an additional question to  Mr Kirby ,  what is the difference between this forum and the Ford Blue Oval Forum.

It's not only turbo charged engines that benefit from a catch can, ...... all engines that have the Positive Crank Case Ventilation plumbed into the intake manifold benefit from a catch can.

 

Turbo engines typically have more piston blow-by, so the catch can does a little more work on them.

Short answer:

Yes if you want to keep your 2.0 running for a long time. Coking can cause hesitation, rough idiling, bad mpg, etc. A catch can will help stop inpurities from sticking to the back of the intake valves.

the link you posted isn't for the 2.0.  This one should work.  I'd imagine the cabling is going to be slightly different:

I used TeamRXP that catches stuff in boost & in vacuum. It's a little more expensive, but worth it imo.  You can also get a more 'normal' one, but I don't know a good brand off the top of my head.  A more 'normal' one would just be a simple connection between the intake manifold & engine block.  The TeamRXP one has 3 lines coming off the can.  I notice on my 2.0 that I catch way way way more in the winter, than in the summer.  Probably due to the condensation & cooler/denser air.  Same on my CX7, which has a 'normal' can on it.

I have a 2017 2.0. and the online videos seem to use an older escape with the old design 2.0.

 

Has anyone installed the JLT on a newer design 2.0?  Is the procedure essentiall the same?

Thanks

I don;t know about 2.0 but I installed one on my 2020 St.  It is catching oil as designed and was very easy to install.
