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: Thanks for the great comment Allan.
Allan James: good tip indeed
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.
AskTheCarExperts: Hello, Not too difficult. Definitely a good DIY for most people and an easy check to see if you have this failure.
sykocis: Why does everyone say that this is a difficult job to do? Am I missing something? It looks fairly simple.
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 second post<-------
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: 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.
E39M5SPEED: I have a 2005 x5 4.8is. My CCV's did not have a vacuum lines attached to them , is this right?
wtf: 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: 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.. thanks again
AskTheCarExperts: Hello Sunny, You are welcome. Did you also have bad CCV valves on your BMW?
sunny gill: thank you so very much for putting this great video up...thank you thank you
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 out :)
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!
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.
Johnny Jones: This video also applies to the N62 V8 engine as found in a 2006 550i Sport Sedan.
