PCV Valve Service
A positive crankcase ventilation (PCV valve) is an inexpensive component of a vehicle’s system – but also one that is often overlooked. Most auto manufacturers suggest that PCV valves be cleaned or replaced after 20,000 to 50,000 miles of driving. Often, a tune up at La Habra All Tune and Lube will include PCV valve service, Our customers appreciate this a great deal because the symptoms of a bad PCV valve are significant and far-reaching.
The PCV valve helps to prevent oil leaks and oil consumption by the engine. It also helps regulate the amount of air flow, which helps prevent oil from being drawn out of the engine, and helps remove moisture, which can be a major contaminant to oil.
With PCV valve service at La Habra All Tune and Lube, we’ll ensure that your valve is working as effectively as possible. A plugged PCV valve can cause many engine problems.
