Your car has a range of different safeguards and valves that work to make sure your engine gets the right amount of air while it is working, the PCV valves do that. There are a range of different valves that help to regulate the amount of air that your engine gets as well as prevents contamination in the engine. The PCV valve works to help make sure that the air that is getting forced into the engine is clean and filtered. When the PCV valve goes you risk a myriad of issues like engine oil contamination, build up in the engine, high fuel use, oil leaks and more. In most cases, the engine gets its clean air through the engine air filter, but the PCV system does supply filtered air to the engine.
The PCV valve in the engine is small, inexpensive and is also important to the engine. Without it, you do run the risk of major issues within the engine. This valve can be replaced fairly easily and at little expense and should be a part of your routine maintenance. This is a fix that can prevent issues like oil leaks, contamination in the engine and so much more. Since this is a small part, replacing it does not cost that much or take that long with the help of an experienced team.
Delaying this type of service is going to result in a few different issues that you will have to resolve. You may have engine oil contamination, higher fuel use in your car, you may have a car that misfires or has trouble starting. You may also notice that your car misfires when it idles.
