Owners also have the option of buying a new crankcase and some choose to do that.
"Whether tens or thousands of engines will have to be tested in order to create a database," says Mentele, "depends on the number of variations expected as favorable versus those that are considered defective, and what you are looking for." Direct injection, port injection and hybrid (direct and port) injection can affect blow-by, and--if the engine doesn't have a PCV valve--the crankcase will look quite different.
This would not only raise awareness on the degradation of soil lay a combined practice of crankcase oil contamination and tillage but could assist critical stakeholders, farmers, agronomists, and other land users as well as policy makers to develop best soil management practices that would enhance durable productivity.
