kristian smith: Does my bmw e46 318ci coupe have a oil separator crank case valve ??
Tilan123: Thanks :)
C. K.: I am not surprised at the labour charge. It took me about 10 hours to do this. So the book estimate is probably about 5-6 hours labour, which comes up to about $500, so your estimate was good.
Esialpha: lol...nope. It was an actual estimate. It was the labour.
Tilan123: LOL are you trolling? Mine costs $79AUD GENUINE.
Esialpha: My BMW dealer wants to change me $831.03 to change my crankcase vent valve. Is this the normal price?
jonnyweston: Good man yourself,
That'll help a number of people find it easier!
Again - great video!
C. K.: Thanks. Done.
jonnyweston: Hey there,
May I possible suggest the renaming of the video from
"CVV - Oil Separator.wmv"
"CCV Valve - BMW Oil Separator" - cause that's what BMW call it - a "C"rank "C"ase "V"entilation Valve.
Might help the helpful video come up in google or even the youtube search a little quicker.
thanks - great video!
Blackwaterdogs: The insulation is worthless.....it only has value when it`s supporting a temperature difference between 2 areas. Once the hardware cools down to the ambient (air) temp, the insulation has absolutely no value.
tunett123: I have a 2000 BMW 328i with rough idle when vehicle is cold. Will replacing this valve help?
Jgizzy -redacted-: Def not spend $60 more, I will just spray the normal CCV with rubber coating spray to insulate it from the cold. Thanks for showing us the difference.
1989alie30: how does an oil sperator sounds like? mine grinds sometimes.
