PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) Valve is a one-way valve that facilitates the steady flow of air inside of the crankcase of the internal combustion engine. When the forklift engine starts, the crankcase collects gases that flow through the piston rings. These gases can cause problems on the forklift components, especially on the forklift engine. If these gases creep into the engine, the corrosive acids and small dirt can clog the passages thus affecting the engine’s emission levels and its longevity. The PCV valve protects the components from the gases by keeping the air in the crankcase clean, which results in a cleaner forklift engine.
The PCV valves should be regularly cleaned and opened. If there is an incorrect air flow or the valve does not function properly, the forklift engine would be negatively impacted. If a replacement of PCV valve is required, the work should be performed by a certified professional. The flow rates differ from engine to engine. If an incorrect valve is installed, serious engine problems may result, such as drivability issues. As a rule-of-thumb with regards to the maintenance of the PCV valve, one should replace the forklift PCV valve at the same time as when the spark plugs are being replaced. The PCV valves are known to last long, due to the small amounts of oil droplets that keep the parts properly lubricated.
