No, it would have the opposite effect. you would lose pressure that normally routes to the pcv hose.

PCV valve should be at crankcase or camshaft casevalve cover?

Hi Eric:
Depending on the engine, the PVC has different locations.
There are holes through the block and head that connect the crankcase to the space under the rocker arm/valve cover.
Check to see where your oil filler cap is located. If it is in the rocker arm/valve cover there has to be a way for it to get into the crankcase.

Watt is a cpv valve on aford f250 engine

PCV - positive crankcase ventilation.

one way passage for gases to escape in a controlled manner from the crankcase of an internal combustion engine.
This is necessary because internal combustion inevitably involves a small but continual amount of blow-by, which occurs when some of the gases from the combustion leak past the piston rings (that is, blow by them) to end up inside the crankcase, causing pressure to build up in the crank case. For control of the pressure inside it, a PCV is used to vent the crank case


Hope this is helpful :-)

Excessive crank case pressure. engine built up pressure and blew valve cover almost all the way off, cracking it in several places

Your engine should have a Positive Crankcase Ventilation or PCV valve on it to prevent this type of thing from happening. While I am not familiar with you engine, you should be able to locate a rubber line running from your valve cover to the air intake system. It may be part of the oil fill cap or a separate valve. It may be a separate piece then you can test it by shaking it. Inside is a metal stopper that should flop back and forth very easily when shaken. This is probably plugged. They can be washed out with gas but it is best to replace them on a regular basis, as you can see.

Oil leaking into the mass air flow hose

High crankcase pressure due to worn rings or a plugged crank case ventilation valve (PCV). This can also be caused by an overfilled oil level

The oil dip-stick is blown out of its seat when the compressor runs

Without knowing what make or model you have, check the following:

1. Some, not all, compressor dip sticks have venting holes for the crankcase. If the vent holes are plugged or the check ball is stuck the dip stick will get forced out when the piston comes down.
2. Make sure the oil level is where it's supposed to be. Too much oil in the crankcase will cause the motor to work harder and the excess oil being splashed around the crank case can overwhelm the vents in the case or dip stick and again blow the dip stick out.
3. Worst case, you have worn or broken rings on the piston(s), a hole in a piston or a badly scored cylinder(s) and air is leaking past the piston and creating pressure in the crank case and blowing the dip stick out.

Oil in air filter wot causes this car in qustion is a jag xj8

This issue is caused by crankcase pressure issue.
Normally filtered air enters the engine, runs through the crank case and then is pulled into the intake through the PCV valve. Durning hard acceleration, the PCV valve closes (to prevent explosion of fumes in crank case and blowing valve covers and pan off) and the PCV system reverses, with fumes coming back through the filtered intake.

Usually there is minimal oil that gets back into the air cleaner.

So, when somthing goes wrong, like excessive blow by, for example, the crankcase pressure overcomes the PCV valve and intake of fumes capability, and oily starts showing up in the air filter.

Investigate the crankcase pressure and PCV system.
