    So I've removed all the nuts holding it to the engine and also the fuel rail, DISA valve (unnecessary, I know), Idle Control Valve, Throttle Body boot and that hidden nut on the bracket that's under the throttle body but there is still something that seems to be holding on to the manifold as it...

    Hi everyone, this is my first post, hope to be welcomed with my 02 530i 5 speed. About a month ago I did the CCV and the two hard coolant pipes under the manifold. After about 20 hours of work over 5 days I finally got the car started, and right away I noticed a coolant leak(hard coolant line...

    I was inspecting my X5 4.8i the other day and found the foam cover on the Crankcase Vent Valve was broken and had slipped up a bit to cover the vent. Would this be enough to create increased engine pressure? Would it be significant? I have circled the parts on the attachments. I appreciate the...

    Hey guys, I'm just about ready to pull all my hair out. I recently picked up a super clean 2003 540i M-Sport with 89,000 miles (Auto) and it was running a little rough. I replaced the coil packs, spark plugs, crankcase vent, valve cover gaskets, vanos seals, alternator and radiator and all was...

    Hi everyone. After doing a lot of research into changing the CCV system to an oil catch can system, i cannot find which is the correct PCV valve i need to buy for my engine. I was originally told i needed to buy FRAM FV345 PCV valve, however, i just fitted that and took the car for a quick...

    Hello, I recently bought a BMW 335d and after a drive one day I decided to check the oil level and noticed diesel exhaust fumes coming from the oil cap. (I became aware of the issue when the car was 100% stock) I'm confident that it isn't a blown head gasket because there are no bubbles in the...

    Hello everyone this is my first time posting but I'm a long time lurker. I've had an intermittent low oil pressure fault happening in my 2004 E60 M54 530I. The fault doesn't stay in the fault logs in iDrive but shows up there while driving if you have the fault tab open under the service...

    I recently purchased a 2001 BMW 540i with 171k and was aware of some problems but they have seemed to have been getting worse. Initially the car only smoked for a few seconds on start up, and you could see some minor smoking from the passenger side valve cover gasket. When i first checked the...

    Hey all, first post here as you can see. Great place you guys got here! So my poor girl is sad with a P0012 light. Doing some research on here and elsewhere, I've done these steps to help alleviate it: Replaced the camshaft position sensor on the intake side, Changed the oil, Cleaned out the...
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Trying to diagnose an o2 heater CEL. Replaced all 4 sensors 2 weeks ago. Started blowing my f4 fuse for the heaters, and I think the crank vent heater. Rather than rummage under the manifold I though, maybe I can isolate the ccv heater. Turned on the car, revved to 5000, fuse blew again...

    Hey guys I recently replaced my CCV on my 318ci 2003 model bmw and I now cannot start it! Now, I traced all the wires back into the air intake manifold sensors, made sure they were plugged in. However I didnt do this well as when I went to start the engine I saw that there was a cable...
  14. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hi, im new to this forum. I'm looking for a little help. I have a 2009 X5 48i. Recently I noticed after idling for a while it was smoking a little. Sometimes when I crank it up after sitting for the night, it smokes right when I start it. When I take off fast, it starts making a loud...

    I replaced the CCV - when I removed the intake manifold I discovered a rubber grommet laying on top of my valley pan. Not sure where it goes at this time. If this part looks familiar please let me know. Thanks

    Hey guys , I Recently picked up a 2005 X5 for basically nothing ... although it did have a hydrolocked engine. To make a long story short, the PO mechanic told him the engine was finished after his CCV had failed on him and hydrolocked. My intentions were to either rebuild or complete swap...
  17. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    So recently the check engine light came on in my wife's X3. I got it diagnosed at the local dealership and was told that I had lean banks 1 & 2, shooting codes PO174 &171. They gave me a statement saying i had a bad vanos oil line leak, bad oil level sensor, bad ccv (oil seprator) and all the...

    2002 BMW 330ci is the car I am dealing with. Hello all- I pray for help to this crazy issue that has popped up after some detailed repairs. Car was running rough at start up, but smoothed out after running a few minutes and drove fine. I pulled the codes and there were 2 indicating misfires as...

    Hey guys and gals, When I serviced my DISA valve late last year, I noted a large amount oily debris in the intake manifold. I***8217;d like to solve the CCV nastiness and improve the overall service of the system by replacing the CCV with a catch can I can drain at each oil change. In doing so...
