The PCV Valve regulates the flow of crankcase fumes into the intake manifold so they can be burned and help maintain proper crankcase pressure. If not replaced regularly, the PCV valve will become clogged which reduces engine performance, reduces fuel economy and can cause oil leaks, as well as, other issues.
The Breather Element is typically a paper or foam element that helps filter the air pulled into the engine crankcase by the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system. All dirty air filtration components will reduce airflow, which could lead to poor acceleration, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy, oil leaks as well as other issues. Not all vehicles are equipped with a PCV valve and/or breather.
