How difficult to replace CCV valve in 2002 X5

My check engine light is on, and occassionally in heavy traffic, the engine runs rough and eventually stalls. When I turn off the engine and wait for 5 seconds, start again, it runs normal until the next instance. Could this be an indication of bad CCV valve? How hard is it to replace CCV valve? I have replaced the intake boot, and looking at photos it looks like the CCV valve is just right next to the throttle body. Has anyone replaced their CCV and would let me know what to look for, or if this might be caused by a different part I would love to hear? Thank you

Have you resolved your issue. My vehicle does pretty much the same thing. I've replace the air intake boot, the ignition coils, spark plugs and I've taken off the DISA assembly and cleaned it.
