PCV Valve by FRAM®. The Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system prevents the release of harmful emissions, helps keep engine oil clean and prevents excessive crankcase pressure, which can cause oil leaks. Maintain peak PCV system performance with a FRAM PCV valve.
- Essential component of the PCV system
- Regulates flow of crankcase vapors into the engine
- Prevents excessive crankcase pressure which can cause oil leaks
- Prevents sludge buildup
The PCV system takes crankcase gases created by churning oil and cylinder blow-by and directs them into the engine where they are burned along with the air/fuel mixture. This keeps harmful emissions from entering the air we breathe and prevents the buildup of crankcase pressure. The PCV valve regulates the flow of these vapors. A clogged valve can cause pressure buildup, which can in turn cause gasket failure and oil leaks, and also cause sludge buildup, which occurs when moisture remains in the crankcase and contaminates the oil. You can keep your PCV system operating properly with a FRAM PCV valve. You'll get extended oil life, an oil-tight engine, and meet emissions requirements.
The first FRAM® filter was designed about 80 years ago by two chemists, Frederic Franklin and T. Edward Aldam. These scientists created a unique created a unique replaceable oil filtering element that was easier to use than standard filters which were difficult to install and change. Today FRAM is a leading manufacturer of oil, fuel, air filters and PCV valves. It offers a wide range of high-quality filters for passenger cars, SUVs, light trucks and commercial vehicles. The company utilizes a number of patented technologies that ensure maximum engine protection and superior engine performance.
