Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 99 ford escort se I don't know what to do I've read that ford made 3
different engine blocks I guess I had the first gen and I didn't know at the time
and still really don't but I got the third gen I don't know my original said
SplitPortInduction2000 and this new one says 2.0 L SplitPort I don't know if I
need a new engine and I know I'm not making sense but the pcv hose
doesn't connect anywhere do I need an entire new engine?

It's the same enging in 99 it was called SplitPortInduction2000 and from 2000 to 2004 the same engine was used in the Ford Focus, it was called"Split Port" there were 7 displacements produced. Will it fit, I think so, does the new engine have a PCV yes, but you will need to locate it..

And as well from the first picture which seem to have an "extra" part that's circled in orange on the new this one circled in purple is the old cover which is nonexistent

On the new engine from the junkyard there is no connection for that hose for the pcv valve I looked and it's not there the engine is in the car it will start and run but it acts as if it has a very bad misfire I check the coil and I have the firming order right I have to hold the gas for it to stay running would the pcv valve hose not being hooked up cause this

It could because of not having the PCV valve installed, Let me lok to see if I can find something on the engine tyou have and where it is installed, There has to be a PCV valve on the new engine, I could swear it's on the side of the engine, Stand by let me look...

111,755

OK, Oh the PCV valves I stand corrected, look at the photo and this is where the PCV valve is on you new engine and where it goes, Let me look for where that other hose may go !

111,755

Looks like that other hose goes to the breather/Air filter Box from what I can see, look at the photo...

150

Are the intake manifolds different from the 2 pictures you look you can see there is 3 little black nipples where the hoses connect mine new engine has the 3 nipple connector and on the picute you posted it has only one coming straight up out of the intake manifold

111,755

The first photo I think it goes to the EGR Solniod, second one I think Is the PCV we were tha talking about, hard to make it out in the photo

150

I'm talking I'm talking about the little black nipples they're like a three-way like a Y. I know where the EGR vacuum holes goes I know where that runs
