Crankcase Breathers

Now days on the vast majority of road going cars and vans a crankcase breather system or crankcase ventilation system is used to improve emission levels. In order to affect a controlled system a PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve is used to monitor the pressure in the crankcase and as this becomes too high this valves releases the excess pressure into the intake system. One thing to understand is that all internal combustion engines “leak” a small amount of combustion charge past the piston rings. When introduced into the intake system (via the PCV valve) this charge of leaked combustion gases will generally reduce the main intake charge or fuel and air mix, thus reducing the efficiency of the intake charge. This will cause loss of power and in worse case scenarios “pinking” and “detonation”.
