Do you notice the smell of the oil vapors since installing the UPR catch-can.
I didn't notice it too much, but now my coworker, whom I sold the EX too says the smell is more apparent.
I will likely uninstall the catch-can for him, as he doesn't care to have it on.
I agree, but the cheapos used by Ford will all fail at the same spot...the plastic cap!
My EX Sport was sold to a coworker and he had to replace the passenger side, at 40K miles (just outside of the comprehensive warranty period).
There's a reason why Ford is changing the rears to an all forged...
I'm calling it now...
Soon the front stabilizer links will be recalled also.
The cap of the ball-joint is also plastic and can break easily.
Ford should have used forged steel for all of the stabilizer links.
On my first DIY oil change (after I used the freebie at the dealership), I had to tighten the hose clamp of the charge pipe the one turbo that is near the front bumper, as it was barely holding the pipe in place.
Ottawa, Ontario resident here and before I sold my 2016 EX Sport, the rear toe link recall was performed last year (minus the alignment) when it went in for a failed PTU and tranny.
I didn't even ask the dealership to do it specifically, as they mentioned that it came up under the VIN search...
When you say you can feel it in parked, do you mean the EX is still running and you are turning the steering wheel left to right and the sound is present?
I would also check the stabilizer end links, which is very easy to replace.
