sykocis: Why does everyone say that this is a difficult job to do? Am I missing
something? It looks fairly simple.
Johnny Jones: This video also applies to the N62 V8 engine as found in a 2006 550i Sport
AskTheCarExperts: Hello, Not too difficult. Definitely a good DIY for most people and an easy
check to see if you have this failure.
Johnny Jones: P.S. this procedure is MUCH, MUCH easier if you use a paint can lid pry
tool (free at the paint store usually), rather than a screw driver. Simply
place pry tool at bottom of each of the six clips, it requires almost no
force to safely remove the lid. Also, the lid without the hose nipples will
work fine as a replacement if there aren't any hoses attached to the
original nips, it still vents exactly the same!
Lonnie Brown: Part2 It idles really rough and I will get an "Engine Malfunction" after a
minute or so, I restart it and itruns fine. A sweet smell coming from the
exhaust but no oil in the anti-freeze. I'm having misfires P0305 & P0308.
No compression coming from the right exhaust. I'm thinking it's the CCV?
The only other idea I have is it might be bad coil packs. I thought it
might have been the head gasket but it doesn't overheat and there is no oil
in the anti-freeze. What do you Think? Thanks SGT Brown
Lonnie Brown: Hello, so nobody seems to know what the hell is going on with my car. I've
taken it to several garages including BMW themselves and they weren't even
sure. I am hoping you can help me. Symptoms: Use to smoke bad (white) after
the car has been idling for a minute or so and it would stop as I drove it
but it doesn't even smoke anymore all of a sudden. ------>Continue reading
sunny gill: thank you so very much for putting this great video up...thank you thank you
AskTheCarExperts: The most common cause of white smoke after idling for a while on an E65 7
series is failing valve seals causing oil to be burned in the exhaust. For
the misfires you should swap over components and see if the misfire moves.
gda86pl: i've replaced them yesterday and my idle is better in my 545i, but still
not idealy smooth, any ideas what can couse rought idle?
AskTheCarExperts: Great Information John! Thank you for posting, I am going to have to try to
use a paint pry tool the next time I see one of these in the shop to try it
AskTheCarExperts: Glad I could help Sunny :)
gill kill: hi this is sunny using different user name ... and yes I was getting check
engine light that READ Service engine soon Emissions Related fault.. i used
scan tool and got code P2189 System Too Lean at idle speed (Bank 2)... I
changed the part shown on this video(11 12 7 547 058) and Problem solved..
AskTheCarExperts: Thanks for the great comment Allan.
E39M5SPEED: I have a 2005 x5 4.8is. My CCV's did not have a vacuum lines attached to
them , is this right?
AskTheCarExperts: Could be quite a few things, an air leak, plugs, injectors. If you have a
check engine light you should have it scanned to try and see what the fault
code will lead you to. It should help trace down the failure.
AskTheCarExperts: Hello Sunny, You are welcome. Did you also have bad CCV valves on your BMW?
AskTheCarExperts: Hello Ariel, Sorry to take so long in responding. You most likely have this
fixed by now. Glad you found my video. This may also be valve seals leaking
which is very common on the N62 engine. Hopefully it was just the CCV
valves. It is part #13 in the diagram. Hope this helps!
AskTheCarExperts: Hello John, Thanks for the comment. You are correct that this same issue is
for the 2006 550i with the N62 engine. This would apply for any vehicle
with the N62 or N62TU.
AskTheCarExperts: That would be normal. Not all the CCV's have the vacuum lines. But the
replacement part still has the nub for them but is sealed.
Allan James: good tip indeed
