Need identification

Can some please identify what this steel pipe is and its purpose and where both ends of the vacuum lines are suppose to go..... Just had engine installed, SAV had no vacuum. Discovered vacuum hose was disconnected. Found what I believe is the electric valve for the SAV vacuum hose to connect to but a hose to this steal pipe is connected to it. I think it is wrong... I need help. Had code p1421 and p1423. I sure its because of the lack of vacuum.... FYI the air pump is perfect before some may ask....

Regarding the M52 fuel rail vacuum lines, I believe the connection facing towards the front of the vehicle connects to the CCV (#6 in the first diagram below), and the connection facing the rear, towards the firewall, should connect to the fuel pressure regulator (#3 in the second diagram below).



Hope this helps.

A lot of the vacuum hose diagrams are backward...so let's append this to the right thread, out of the list below ... probably this one is best:
> E39 (1997 - 2003) > WHERE does the CCV vacuum source port go for the E39 CCV valves that are not plugged?

I'm not sure, from the picture, which side of the engine that "pipe" is, but, mine has a PLASTIC pipe on the passenger side, which goes to the SAP system.

A few questions, What is meant by M54? My car is a e39. The hard tube i posted in the picture is for the CCV I discovered while searching the web. What is the effect of driving around with no hose on the fuel pressure regulator. Where is the fuel pressure regulator on my 2000 528i .

Advance Auto, Auto Zone, etc will/maybe clear your codes. Before I bought my own code readers I would borrow theirs and do it myself. I'm not sure if there are limitations in your state for that.

Well my repairs must have been a success. I done the repairs yesterday, and the light stayed on all day yesterday... but. When I went to pick up the wife from work this morning, the SERVICE ENGINE SOON light was on when i started it, and about 3 or 4 minutes later it went out on its own... I know the codes are still in memory,but the problem is solved and thats why the light went out.....thanks to all you guys for helping.....

Roger:

M54 is the motor designation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_M54

Your 2000 528i originally had the M52TU engine. If you know for a fact that the new replacement motor is the M54, then it is either the M54B25 or M54B30 version.

I would purchase a code reader that can also reset your oil service lights as well.
