Furthermore, what is too much Blowby?
That means that the engine is producing too much blow by--that the pistons, rings, or cylinder walls are all worn out and that too much exhaust is getting into the crankcase. That means it's time for an engine rebuild.
what is normal engine Blowby? When measured in cubic feet per minute (cfm), a 12-liter engine in good mechanical condition can experience at idle 1.5 cfm of blowby at normal operating temperature but 3.5 cfm when cold. Under full load, the blowby may be 2.7 cfm.
Just so, what causes Blowby?
Blow-by occurs when the explosion that occurs in your engine's combustion chamber causes fuel, air and moisture to be forced past the rings into the crankcase. Soot and deposits left over from incomplete combustion that collect on the rings can also inhibit their seal worsening blow-by.
