Slide3:

Internal combustion engines have a blow by mechanism which occurs when some of the gases formed during combustion process escape past the piston rings into the engine’s crankcase.

Slide5:

This is done in order to ensure that there are no oil leaks in the car as excess crankcase pressure can cause oil leaks.

Slide6:

Generally the gases are sent through a PCV valve and sometimes through a crankcase ventilation filter or breather filter.

Slide7:

The crankcase ventilation filter is one of the only components of the crankcase ventilation system and is an important component in maintaining the functionality of the system.

Slide9:

Oil leaks

Slide11:

The crankcase filter filters the blow by gases to make sure that they are clean before they are sent back into the car’s intake manifold.

Slide12:

In due course of time, the filter can get dirty and restrict the air flow and can affect the pressure-relieving capacity of the system.

Slide13:

Consequently, if the pressure inside becomes too high, then it can cause gaskets and seals to blow causing oil leaks in your car.

Slide14:

High idle

Slide15:

Another common symptom of a potential issue with the crankcase vent filter is experiencing an excessively high idle.

Slide17:

Moreover, a high idle is a potential indication of more than one issue in the car.

Slide18:

Decrease in engine performance

Slide19:

A decrease in the engine performance is another symptom of a potential problem with the crankcase vent filter.

Slide21:

You will experience a decrease in power and acceleration when you will be driving at low engine speeds.

Slide22:

Conclusion

Slide23:

The crankcase vent filter is an important component of the crankcase system and is responsible for maintaining the functionality of the system.

Slide24:

Whenever you experience any of the above-mentioned symptoms, then take your car to the automotive shop to fix the issue.
