Operation

Specific to:

Toyota Camry 2009-2010

The PCV system consists of the breather tube and the PCV valve. The breather tube connects the crankcase to a contained fresh air source such as the air cleaner. Air passes into this tube and into the engine after being filtered through a spark arrestor screen in order to prevent the possibility of an explosion within the engine in the case of a backfire.
