Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site, I will be happy to assist you today.


Not an actual PCV valve.



Crankcase gases are removed from the cylinder block (and cylinder head to an extent) to an oil trap (1) where oil is separated from the crankcase gases and returned to the oil sump. The hose to the cylinder head equalizes differences in pressure between the upper and lower parts of the engine.

When the Turbocharger cuts in, crankcase gases flow through the crankcase hose (5) through heating nipple (6) to the fresh air intake.

When there is little load on the engine or when it is idling there is no under-pressure in the fresh air hose upstream of the Turbocharger and only a small quantity of crankcase gases are formed. Because of this a vacuum hose (7), to lead crankcase gases directly to the intake manifold at low loads, goes from the heating nipple to a calibrated intake downstream of the throttle.
