PCV VALVE SERVICE
LubeFX+ ensures you have the correct PCV valve service. PCV Valve routes and regulates air and fuel from the crankcase back through the intake manifold to the cylinders rather than allowing them to escape into the atmosphere.
The PCV valve routes and regulates air and fuel from the crankcase back through the intake manifold to the cylinders rather than allowing them to escape into the atmosphere.
When your PCV Valve is due for replacement, there are three things to know: 1. If you are losing oil at the top of your air intake or engine. 2. Loss of power. 2. Reduced fuel economy To help keep your PCV valve in excellent working condition, come to see one of our Lubefx+ service experts today! No appointment is needed.
THE PCV VALVE IS PART OF THE ENGINE AIR FILTRATION SYSTEM, IF EQUIPPED ON YOUR VEHICLE.
The Engine Air Filtration System may consist of the following components:
- Engine Air Filter
- Breather Element, if equipped
- PCV Valve, if equipped
The Engine Air Filter reduces harmful dirt particles from entering the engine’s air intake system where they may cause engine damage.
The Breather Element helps filter the air pulled into the engine crankcase by the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system or a metered orifice.
The PCV Valve or metered orifice regulates the flow of crankcase fumes into the intake manifold so they can be burned and help maintain proper crankcase pressure.
As engine air filtration components become restricted, airflow is reduced, which could lead to poor acceleration, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy, oil leaks as well as other issues.
