Jase Depperschmidt: I have a BMW 745i V8 with 181,000 miles. Since I bought the car last year (used), I am having a terrible time with my car gradually burning more and more oil. Anytime I idle, it burns oil. I just recently bought a valve cover breather, and valve cover gaskets for all cylinders from a bav auto sales rep after discussing symptoms with a guy at my local NAPA (who recommended you). Do you think that after I replace these that it will fix the issue? Really hoping so; the car is in great shape besides this issue, but I am having to put two to three quarts of oil in every 3 weeks or so.
Andy Milner: Older M60's have fewer pipe connections but the replacement unit will have pipe holes that must be blanked off...If you don't it will have vacuum leaks through these unused connections and be worse than it was before you started! Beware...owing to all the oil around the failed part you will drop your spanner and a bolt during this proceedure. Best tip is to take off your gloves to get a better feel and accuracy when doing this job and blue towel the oil out of the inside of the manifold
rosetta rooplall: Thank you so much, was a great help.
Recklessness97: Thank you for this perfect diy. My 03 540i msport is having rough idle problems. When it cold starts the RPMs will drop and go up over and over again until it reaches operating temperature. You can hear the engine almost die then come back to life also there's quite a bit of engine vibration that can be seen and felt strongly in the cabin on cold start. I believe my car has vacuum leaks so I will be doing this job as well replacing the idle air control valve and the throttle body gasket and throttle body housing gasket. I want to replace the intake manifold gaskets but that's out of my skill range and looks like a lot of work. Hopefully the above fixes my problems other wise I'm off to the dealer for manifold gasket replacement. I can hear my wallet crying already lol.
David Lewis: Bolts stripped what can I do?
Fernando Alvarez: best diy video I've ever seen. Please post more!!!!
James Young: Awesome video!!! Best one yet on doing this job. Thank you so much!!!
waller647: Awesome 2 part video, thank you so much.....
Thiago Salgado: What codes was it showing? P0171? P0174? I've got theses codes. Also, my car gives me a sound of a suction when I hit the throtle. And more, around 3400-3500 rpm on a hard accelaration, I get a hesitation from the engine... like it was out of air/fuel...
IntrigueDynamite: This procedure is best implemented in a Professional Auto Repair shop, where there may be a customer's unwillingness to pay the extra dollar, BUT, for the sake of anyone attempting to make the repair themselves, TAKE THE MANIFOLD OFF!! Replace the intake manifold gaskets while you are doing this job, as well as the O-rings and the front cover gasket as well. The galley pan gasket is optional, but not a bad idea, when doing this job as well. Nothing more aggravating than having to go back and do the same work to replace a small part that should've been replaced the first time around. However, this is a good video, and patient instructional, Nice Job. ;) ASE Master Tech.
Marek Dominik Polak: hello I have a question (problem) replaced the PCV and all was well about half a year, recently pull out the dipstick and here'm hearing some gurgling and sucks her finger, what could be the cause of this? PVC is it again? Regards
calvin haugabrooks: I got a cap with my pcv kit from you guys. What is it for? And I have a m60 that dosnt use the second vaccum hose so how do I seal it?
rudebuoy007: I ENJOY THESE VIDEO FROM BAVARIAN AUTOS, EXPLANATIONS ARE VERY INFORMATIVE, CLEAR AND CONCISE....KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK BAVAUTO. LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE. DO HAVE ONE QUESTION THOUGH, AND IT IS LIKE PULLING TEETH. I USE TO HAVE OIL CHANGE DONE AT CAR WASH PLACE FOR A FEW YEARS, CARE WAS NOT TAKEN TO REMOVE THE OIL HOUSING CAP AND AS A RESULT, THE MOUNTS WERE SHEARED OFF....LOOKED LIKE THE EASIEST THING TO REPLACE, BUT I AM CATCHING HELL WITH REMOVING IT...DO YU HAVE A VIDEO TO SHOW HOW IT SHOULD BE PROPERLY DONE, BOUGHT NEW MOUNTS BUT CANT GET THE OLD ONES OFF...PLEASE ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE MOST APPRECIATED.
Ceelo totheworld: Exquisite 2pt video ! I would love to see you guys do a m62tu v8 vanos repair since it's so common
jorgemarr: Excellent two part video
alawabidingcitizen: Thank you. I ended up replacing the whole cover not just valve. Result: Still smoke puff at start up, sometimes. Suction from dipstick went from too much to barely feel it. Engine sounds softer. Could it be the front intake manifold cover? The thick hose that attaches to the bottom of the cover from driver's side with a spring seemed wiggly as if it wasn't connected to anything on the other end? Is that normal? Bottom of front manifold cover is a little oily?
Bavarian Autosport: Yes, by far, the most common fault is that the diaphragm ruptures. In this case, you can indeed separate the diaphragm assembly and just replace it, without removing the complete check valve cover assembly.
alawabidingcitizen: Thank you for the detailed video. My 2001 740i is doing the start up smoke sometimes and I'm ready to act yet haven't bought the part nor decided which way to do it. I would like your advice on this: Since there is no moving parts other than the valve - which is the supposed faulty part - and since it can be difficult for someone like me to go through surprises that can arise, including hoses and not having every tool out there, can I just buy the valve and pop it up and replace it? Thanks much!
Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
