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 cankcase 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.

As part of the Valvoline Oil Change & Brake Center 20-point oil change service, we visually inspect the engine air filtration system components and recommend replacement, as necessary.

Valvoline Oil Change & Brake Center recommends an air filter service every 12,000 miles or 12 months.
