Default pcv or not?

so on my first saturday off since february, i finally got a chance to get to a fird dealer... got the valve, and lo and behold the oold one has no valve. it is just a pipe end that is hollow. it does have the right thread but thats it.

does this mean that i gave tge heated type? or did the original owner just do away with it? so i put the new one in because two is better than one and if there was none, 1 is also better...

Passenger side is the PCV valve. The driver side is just breather that is before the throttle body. PCV works under vacuum, the breather is clearing the crankcase under throttle.

Ford only had a PCV on the passenger side! And the one that came on your truck new doesn't look like either of the two you have pictured.

This is what you need!

so the age old question answered. it IS on the passenger side... it was gummed in there. i had to finess it out. but the old one was motorcraft and probably original. same as the new one, just not blue... the drivers side is just a fitting. thanks for your input guys. right as usual, dealer not so much...

I do mechanic work on the side. 90% of the work I do is on 99-03 F-150s. I have NEVER seen a blue PVC valve. OEM is all black plastic, some aftermarket ones have metal bases with black plastic barb.

The new ones are blue. Because they dont push in they twist in to the valve covers. Hell I recently replaced the PCV for my truck and it completely plastic.
