    Hello All, This is not my thing, - posting stuff. But I wanted to share some of my (torturous) experience with replacing a 'valve cover'. It started with the 'loud whistling sound'. This one coming from the port located at the crankcase diaphragm cover. Many of you already know that it's caused...

    Hi everyone, I need help solving this small problem. I have a 1994, 325i, e36 sedan. my current smog test showed high HC. I decided to start fixing the problem by finding and fixing all of the vacuum leaks. On the corner of the valve cover there is a breather hose connector with two nipples...

    Hello - yesterday I took my 2009 E90 328i in for the PCV recall and blower motor wiring recalls. They had my car for most of the day but I had a loaner so I was in no rush. This morning I was looking in the engine bay and there is still an undisturbed patina of light dust uniformly over the...

    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 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...

    I've been struggling with what seems to be a pretty obscure issue for quite a while now. After battling with some error codes on my 08 BMW 528xi (thread can be found at http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=758175), I was about ready to give up on troubleshooting the problem when...
  8. 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...

    So I replaced the starter motor in my 2000 323Ci and after reassembling the intake manifold and related tubing, the car starts but the engine bogs and struggles to stay running. I took apart the intake and found that there was an excessive amount of oil in the throttle body. This due to me...
  10. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi guys, I had my E53 3.0 Diesel oil serviced last week and a week later it starts giving out blue smoke, and a few days later i saw a small oil leak, cant see where its coming from cos of the cover underneath. It does not lose power and its not overheating so i ruled out headgasket and valve...

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and a new bmw owner. After months of looking I finally purchased an e36. It's a 96 318is with low miles clean car. Checked it out before buying everything looked good. I went ahead and started daily driving this week to see how it ran and it was doing great. A little...
  12. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hello I have a 1998 BMW E36 323is. At cold start, I experience a rough idle for first 30 seconds or so and white smoke coming out of my exhaust. As soon as the engine warms up to the optimal temperature, everything goes away. The codes that it gives me are P0170 - fuel trim bank 1 P1188 - A/F...
  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    ok, this is a long story so im going to talk about the main events of what happen, and try to keep it short.... A while ago, i noticed my temperature sensor was broken in the inside where two metal strings are both broken off, but I never had a problem or noticed one and eventually I ordered a...
  14. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hello. I just finished replacing the PCV on my 1995 740IL. While doing this job a couple things had to be disconnected: on the PCV the fuel vacuum hose at the top on the passenger side, The Brake booster hose on the top driver side, and another hose at the bottom on the driver side. While...
  15. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hey guys, I'm new here and I drive a 1999 740i. I have a few very important issues that I need help with, the first being a P1475 code. I've more or less put up with it since I couldn't find a fix but now I need to get inspection and the check engine light must go away. I've done some...
  16. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My mechanic is ready to charge me about $1,000 to replace the PCV valve. Evidently, this valve is attached to the rocker cover which also must be replaced. The car engine is a N46N. This seems extraordinary given the PCV valve is a small simple piece of kit. It's either crappy engineering or...
  17. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    My 2005 x5 3.0 has recently been leaking quite a bit of coolant. It then started to emit thick clouds of white smoke every once in a while upon start up. It was probably only every 5 or so times that we started the vehicle. I was worried that coolant was getting into the cylinders so we had it...
  18. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    HI There, was performing the standard PCV cover replacement which fails and I think were causing my misfire and performance issues. Not happy with eventually getting the Valve off the back of the intake manifold. I had a look in to see if there was any oil however i managed to disturb the...
  19. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    My 328is currently has about 83k miles on it. When fixing an oil leak, I noticed some build-up in the engine compartment (see photos). My mechanic said this was due to a PCV, which is supposed to pull out excess water out of the engine compartment. I live in Minnesota and at the moment, is very...
