Engine Air Filtration Service
Every time a vehicle's driver presses the gas pedal, they are controlling how much air and fuel
enters the engine. The Engine Air Filtration system aids in filtering the air's contaminants and
helps to ensure the correct air/fuel mixture.
The Engine Air Filtration System may consist of the following components:
• Engine Air Filter
• Breather Element, if equipped
• PCV Valve, if equipped
The Engine Air Filter is typically a paper element that reduces harmful dirt particles from
entering the engine's air intake system where they may cause engine damage.
The Breather Element is typically a paper or foam element that helps filter the air pulled into
the engine crankcase by the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system or a metered orifice.
The PCV Valve or metered orifice regulates the flow of crankcase fumes into the intake
manifold so they can be burned and help maintain proper crankcase pressure.
As Engine Air Filtration components become restricted, airflow is reduced, which could lead
to poor acceleration, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy, oil leaks as well
as other issues.
As part of the Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change, we visually inspect the Engine Air
Filtration System components and recommend replacement, as necessary.
