Positive crankcase ventilation valve repair

PCV Valve Replacement Service

What is important about my Vehicle’s Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve?

The positive crankcase ventilation valve (PCV valve) is what expels gas away from the engine. These gases are sent back to the combustion chambers and plays a critical role in how your engine functions.


A PCV valve replacement is important as the PCV valve redirects fumes through the intake system, and if it fails, then the engine will have excessive gas. This causes the engine to struggle and can cause additional, more severe damage over time.

I was travelling and had a problem with the generator on my RV. Matt and the service techs at TLC got me in the day after I called and got it repaired in two hours, at a very fair cost. I stumbled into TLC after RV service outfits told me it would be a week to ten weeks before they could even look at my problem. I can't say enough about how well they took care of me.

Replacement Pcv valve
PCV valve repair near me

Are you in need of an auto PCV Valve repair?

Although a PCV valve is a small piece in any vehicle, it can cause a massive ripple effect of issues. If you’re experiencing any of the problems listed below, it might be time to take your vehicle in for a PCV valve replacement.

A few warning signs include:

  • Increase in oil consumption: With oil leaking out of your vehicle due to blockage, you will need to replenish the engine oil more frequently. 


  • Oil leakage:The excess moisture in your vehicle can lead to a bloackge in your PCV valve, which pushes pressure into the engine cylinders and lead to oil leakage.


  • Filter contamination: The filter is called the breathe element, and this filter can be contaminated by hydrocarbons and oil, which will cause the PCV valve to fail. You can have the filter checked, but you can also gauge this problem by your vehicle’s gas mileage. 


  • Decrease in engine performance: With the combination of high RPM, leaking oil and buildup of pressure, your engine will struggle to work as normal, so your vehicle’s overall performance will decline.


  • Hissing noise: This can happen as a result of the PCV filter being clogged, which can interfere with the PCV valve.  


  • High idling speed: With the lacking air flow, the damaged PCV valve can cause your idle RPM to rise more than usual. 


  • Check engine light is on: Lastly, if you notice that your ‘check engine’ light on your dashboard has turned on, have the problem diagnosed immediately, even if it might not be your PCV valve that is causing the issue. 


  • Lean or Rich Mixture: A damaged PCV valve can lead to the air and fuel mixture being wrong, leading to engine misfires or gray smoke coming from the exhaust. 


  • Engine Misfiring: As just mentioned, a lean mixture can lead to your engine misifring, as a result of the cylinders not firing up properly. 


  • Engine Stalling: Your engine stalling may also happen due to lean or rich mixtures. 


  • Rough Acceleration: Struggling to accelerate your vehicle will often happen on both high and low RPMs, but you most likely will not notice on higher RPMs, unless idling.

Why does it matter?

A PCV valve replacement service can solve a number of issues, including fixing the odd noises your engine might make. 


Having a PCV valve replacement service will stop oil leakage and excess pressure from benign trapped in your engine. Your engine should also return to normal operation, including a decrease in idling RPM. 


The rate of PCV filter contamination will also decrease

The benefits of PCV Valve Replacement

Saves Money

Replacing your PCV valve will prevent any further damage to other portions of your vehicle, including your engine.

Restores Comfort in Driving

With a new PCV valve, your engine will work properly, without making a hissing sound, or other abnormal noises.

Restores Engine Efficacy

Because oil is being properly supplied, and the gases are being properly filtered out, your engine’s efficacy will return to normal after having a PCV valve replacement service.

Decreases Oil Consumption

With a PCV valve replacement service, your vehicle won’t consume or leak as much oil, cutting down the cost and frequency of oil changes.

Prevents Further Damage to Engine

By having a PCV valve replacement service, you prevent additional damage from pressurized gases to your engine. This prevents the need for additional inspections and repairs.

PCV Valve Inspection

If you don’t have the engine oil changed on a regular basis, then your PCV valve is at risk for failing


Your engine may also stall or misfire, if the damage to your PCV valve has been left unattended for some time. If the PCV valve is not replaced, however, your engine will release more pollution, as well as be more likely to quit faster. 


In the vehicle’s crankcase system, there is also a ventialiation process that has a filter. If you are having to get a PCV valve replacement, then it could be useful to have the mechanic check the crankcase breather filter as well. 


The crankcase breather filter keeps debris and other contaminants out of the gases that flow in and out of the vehicle’s engine. A clogged filter will lead to gas contamination, which leads to higher RPMs, oil leakage and overall decline in engine performance.
