Crankcase Ventilation System

OEM Crankcase Ventilation System

The amount of pollutants in the crankcase oil increases every moment the spark plug ignites. The principal by-products of gasoline and air combustion are unburned hydrocarbon by-products, carbon monoxide, and nitrous oxides (NOx). Blow-by products are substances that are blown around the piston rings and downwards into the crankcase. When these gases interact with the oil vapors in the crankcase, they produce some terrible compounds that can and will harm your engine.

The blow-by products in the crankcase must be eliminated. We cannot, however, simply release them into the air. So, what are the possibilities available to us? Until 1965, most cars and compact trucks included a vent, also known as a road draft tube, that ventilated the crankcase to the atmosphere. Following 1965, all cars were required to have a government-mandated device installed.

What is it?

The crankcase ventilation system of an internal combustion engine removes unwanted gases from the engine's crankcase. The system usually includes a one-way valve, a tube, and a vacuum source (such as the intake manifold). Gases that have fled from the combustion process and traveled through the piston rings are referred to as "blow-by." In older engines, these gases were released into the atmosphere via seeping through the crankcase seals. The first dedicated crankcase ventilation system was the road draught tube, which used a partial vacuum to suck gases through some kind of tube and release it into the environment.

PCV systems, which were first used in the 1960s and are now present on almost all new engines, return crankcase gases to the combustion chamber, minimizing pollutants. Two-stroke engines with a crankcase compression configuration do not need a crankcase ventilation system since the engine's normal operation includes sending the crankcase gases to the combustion chamber.

PCV Valve

The PCV valve, or positive crankcase ventilation, is a simple mechanism that permits filtered fresh air to enter the crankcase. The PCV valve uses the engine's vacuum to suck air through the crankcase and reintroduce it into the intake manifold system. The unburned hydrocarbons and nitrous oxides that passed through the rings now have a second chance to burn entirely. The engine's pollution management system in later cars can manage them. This method works well and requires minimal maintenance. However, a lack of knowledge mixed with the fact that the average motorist does not open his engine hood at every fill-up can lead to serious problems. Furthermore, failing to comprehend how and why the oil breathes can result in pricey car repairs.

How does a PCV system work?

Engine oil pollution, sludge build-up, leaks, high fuel consumption, and several other engine troubles can all be caused by defective or overused PCV valves. This could cause serious damage to the engine.

What happens when a PCV valve goes bad?

Defective or overused PCV valves can cause engine oil pollution, sludge build-up, leakages, high fuel consumption, and a variety of other engine issues. This might induce severe harm to the engine.

What are the signs of a faulty PCV valve?

A defective PCV valve could be the cause of misfiring or missing spark plugs when idling, excessive oil consumption, black smoke, or unclean spark plugs.

What is the most common problem with PCV valves?

Clogging, which stops the valve from draining moisture and blow-by gasses from the crankcase, is one of the most common problems with PCV valves. As a result, a sludge accumulates, raising pressure and possibly leading seals to burst due to the hot oil.
