  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey all, so I've been prepping to take care of my valve cover gasket leak and have a question. Background - Took a look and it appears all the typical seals are leaking; VCG, Valvetronic motor gasket, and eccentric shaft sensor gasket. I do have a slight hesitation under moderate to heavy...
  2. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hello guys, I would like to share a very easy and successful DIY for CCV/PCV/CVV with you all. Those who have experience; squealing noise coming from the engine bay when you stop and put your foot on the brake pedal, rough idle when start the engine, or/and lowering engine oil level, you may...

    I have a 2003 325xi and the other day i took it to the dealership for a diagnostic. Well it turns out theirs a crack in one of my separator hoses but being un educated with cars i figured it could wait. A little whilw after i noticed my car was missfiring so i took it to aitozone and they told...

    Tonight I thought I'd change out the CVV on my 2001 540i. Wouldn't you know the very last bolt got stripped (I'll be swapping those T30s for hex heads, thanks to another post I read). **So now I have to pull the intake manifold to complete the CVV job. What advice do you all have for me...

    Hi Everyone! A little history (you can skip this and go to the solution if you want): I own an E39 with M54B30 engine since ~3 years. When I bought the car I***8217;ve replaced the whole CVV system and every gasket in the engine housing (except the cylinder head gasket) because oil was...

    Could a faulty CCV cause the oil filter housing gasket, oil pan gasket and thermostat to spring leaks? In Jan '13 my valve cover gasket started leaking and I had it replaced. Feb. '13 the CCV in my 2001 530I went way bad and caused oil to be sucked into the intake, requiring a new crank case...

    I was in the process of changing the CVV this morning. I was at trying to remove the valve from its hiding place and heard a snap. I thought the valve or one of the hoses broke, but no I broke the connector off the end of the Oil Pressure Sensor that screws into the Oil Filter Housing. The...

    So last Sunday was Father's day here in Australia. My wife bought me a 200 pc tool set that is simply awesome. Her only mistake was letting me talk her into giving it to me on Saturday. The weekend was perfect - warm, sunny and just right for replacing my CCV, vanos oil hose and the OFHG. They...
  9. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    Hey there, I am looking for a picture of the wiring harness that is by the Idle Control Valve in my 1999 528I (E39). Something that explains where each wire terminates? If possible! I Replaced CVV/ Oil Seperator, and think I may have some wires crossed. No starty! No party! Know what I mean...
  10. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    My 2003 BMW X5 has a chirping noise at low idle. It goes away when I start to drive but around 500-700 RPM, it is very loud. I have recently replaced my DISA valve and searched on many forum topics which all the symptoms point to. I also have a suspicion it may be the CVV (Oil Separator)...
