Is PCV Valve really necessary?

I have read your other post. I really don't think you were understanding some of the threads that were posted. As you say you have fumes in the engine compartment. The purpose of the PCV valve is to pull the gases from the crankcase and pull them into the intake manifold to reburn in the engine again instead of to the atmosphere. The PCV valve regulates the vacuum pulled thru the PCV system. That is why your idea will not work. Here is an article on crankcase ventilation to give you a better understanding than I can explain.
