They let the engine breath. Mine were blocked and I was getting weeps from
the pipe joints and the rocker cover gaskets - replaced them and all was
well. They're only cheap but I'm going to wash the ones I've just taken off
in petrol - not so sure about setting fire to them though. As long as the
pipes aren't actually blocked I'd just drain them out - they'll get oiled up
again soon enough.
