What is the crankcase emissions control system?

In order to comply with the Clean Air Act and reduce pollution that contributes to environmental damage and the creation of smog, your Accord uses several different emissions controls systems. Your crankcase emissions control system is responsible for maintaining positive pressure inside the crankcase. The system moves exhaust gases from the crankcase and through the intake so that they’re re-burned. This not only reduces emissions, but boosts fuel economy.
