Get him to change all the hoses around it and yes, it is a pain - too little room to work on!Anyone ever changed the ccv on a 3.0L? Finally got my car into the shop. That was his diagnosis. I feel like I can probably do this one myself considering it was 480 with parts and labor.
Any tips or help would be appreciated.
Good to see you got it running fine. Fun job isn't it? The two screws for the actual valve to the block were a biotch to me, they tight an noisy like they were gonna brake on me, then the shield that separates the DSC/brake bboster from the engine bay was hard to get back in, but again this was in a 3 series so not sure if the x3 is a little easier because of more room. What I jnow the engine tight spaces are the same and not fun!after 8 hours, 2 unnecessary Autozone trips, and halfway redoing the whole job because the ICV electrical connector did not completely seat, the car is FINALLY running good. Thanks for all the help guys, especially x-3terrestial.
