2004 bmw x3 ccv

So, I had rough idling and i noticed a broken hose from my ccv valve to my dipstick. I replaced all the hoses and and the ccv. What a huge pain in the ass. I am quite sure all the hoses were atached to the ccv. It is tight so kinda hard to really verify other than feeling.

Anyway, now when i pull the dipstick out, i hear some distinct gurgling coming from the dipstick hole. I believe it is coming from the crankcase.

Any thoughts? Is this a major problem?

Thanks,

Sammy

I guess its also called the osv

There was a Ses light on prior to changing the osv/ccv and then i cleared it with an obd. The ses has not come back on since the replacement. When i pull the dipsitck there is rarely and vacuum compared to before the changeout. there is just a little gargling. i am wondering if one of the hoses is loose. Also, i did not blow air in through the dipstick like some forums suggested because I did not have any indications of sludge in the 5 lines i replaced.
