The engine air filtration system aids in filtering the air’s contaminants and helps to ensure the correct air/fuel mixture. The Engine Air Filtration System may consist of the following components:
- Engine Air Filter
- Breather Element
- PCV Valve
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.
Bowman's Auto Service recommends regular inspection of your air filtration system components and recommend replacement, as necessary.
