No M54 love?
Please review my thread: http://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/sh...o-Improve-Ride
A bit of a bump, but, I have to replace the CCV on my 528 with an M52TU engine. As I see there's a big difference in the M52 and M52TU intake manifolds So I guess there's no way around it but to disconnect the intake manifold. So two questions:
1. Can I get the manifold out of the way without disconnecting the fuel rail, much like in the first guide?
2. While I'm doing the CCV, what other things should I replace besides the CCV? My best guess is that my manifold gaskets are done for after 155k miles, at least I doubt anybody replaced them midterm. What else could do with replacing? Any hoses? What can I replace on a budget, or is it best to not cheapskate around this or I'll be demolishing this again?
3. Is it as hard as it looks? I'm guessing on a scale 1-10, 1 is replacing a bulb, 10 is an engine rebuild, this looks like a 6.

Anybody? I've scouted around a bit, and as far as I can tell, you can reach the CCV if you remove the throttle body, but I wasn't able to pull it out because the hose that leads to the vanos cover was in the way. Any tips here? or is there just no way but to get it out the old fashioned way?
Time for me to change the CCV.
Live the e39..!!
Its a piece of cake, I swapped in my m50 manifold in a few hours.
What kind of warning signs does the ccv give you when its going or gone bad?
have a small oil leak. Hard to diagnose if if its either the CCV or Oil filter housing Gasket (OFHG) because the leak is between the two on my E39. The leak starts between CCV and OFHG and reaches the oil pan but its not the oil pan. I did the CCV test with oil cap no noise or major air pull when you put a plastic bag on it. Its my e39 2003 with 130K.
Great diy. I just finished replacing the seperator on my 98 328i without removing the intake. I got it to exit the front. Thank you for contributing.

One suggestion, do not use the knockoff ccv valves! For the most part they are completely worthless and will cause you to replace it over and over until you buy a oem one.
hi james im going to do mine too. does the ccv come out easily

also are there only two hoses one at front and one at bottom of the pcv to remove?
