    Explanation of Solution

    Given information:

    Technician A says that if the PCV valve or connecting hoses become clogged, excessive pressure will develop in the crankcase and can cause oil leaks.

    Technician B says that if the PCV valve or connecting hoses become clogged, oil may be pushed into the air cleaner or cause it to be drawn into the intake manifold.

    The main function of positive crankshaft ventilation (PCV) is to recycle the blow-by gases (the gases that leaks from the combustion chamber and enters the crankcase) by allowing fresh air to flow through the crankcase. This helps in relieving the pressure contained in the crankcase due to the blow-by gases and it also prevents corrosion...
