Just Checking my Understanding

Hey Peeps,
Im trying to get an understanding of the information that I have read. I have a 2006 550i with 72k miles. This is my first BMW vechile and I am enjoying every second.

Just had a little white smoke coming out my tailpipe. No water in my oil but the oil was low. I have had a little shaking as of recently. Its very slight, but enough for me to notice. (usually when im idleing). I've read that if your losing oil, and if a little white smoke coming out that the crankshaft vent.. is prob the culprit.

I watched a video last night showing how to change it. This is the link. Just trying to clarify if Im really on the right track.



Thanks for any responces!
