BMW 330i 325i E46 CCV Replace & Intake Removal (Part 1) - See It Clearly! P0171 P0174 Repair

2300 ratings | 399099 views
Frustrated with those other CCV replacement videos where they basically tell you to fish those tubes through the intake manifold blind? Well in my video I go ahead and remove the intake manifold, which lets you get access to replace a lot of vacuum lines and other components, and in doing so I give you a view of exactly how to fish the CCV tube through the manifold and connect it to the oil separator so that you can SEE what you need to do clearly, should you decide not to remove it. In this video I work on my 2002 BMW 330i. To see the video on how to remove all the usual suspects: https://youtu.be/Zt3XFkd97dc I also clean the throttle body and idle air control valve, which really gave me a boost in responsiveness, by the way. In part 2 I will show you the various vacuum lines you can replace as well as the intake manifold gasket and I show you how to put everything back together. Look for that next week!

Thanks 50's kid - excellent video. My son and I performed this replacement yesterday in about 7 hours. Unfortunately I still have the smoking issue but no longer have the vacuum leak codes nor the misfire codes. I did not have a one way valve to insert i the drain hose so I'm going to simply disconnect the drain hose and see if I still have the smoking issue on the off-chance that my new CCV is defective (although not likely since the vacuum leak codes are gone). Any advice on the continues smoking (blue and white smoke)?

Is this process similar to doing it on a 2005 x3?
don hezca (16 days ago)
I got a oil leak on my x3 but after watching this I think I will just donate it to a recycling place. I'm a handyman but this just looks like to much.
Kevin Lambert (18 days ago)
Just finished this job. It seems overwhelming at first but just follow the steps and all will be fine. I have a Canadian model and noticed some differences, a vac line or two and a wire connector he had that I don't. After putting everything back together and starting the car it still ran shitty. I checked a plug on the back of the manifold that I new was brittle and split and taped it up snug and slid it back on, now she runs pretty good. MAF might need cleaning.. not sure though. Anyway, thank you 50's Kid. You're a hero

Great clip and what brand of parts do you recommend for the CCV? Thank you.
Jordan Sass (28 days ago)
I recently had this done on my vehicle, I got it back and it started smoking white. Watched your videos and I can’t see any oil leaks, or coolant loss. My 2009 328i then started burning oil excessively. About 1L/100KM. I can’t seem to locate the issue. I was driving on the highway and it just burned that much so I pulled over immediately. Could it be the piston rings or the CCV? It’s not leaking anywhere as after I noticed it losing oil previous the highway trip I parked it after a short drive with cardboard underneath it and there was none

jeez its a hell of a thing back aching legs burning.. what troubled me the most was i forgot to disconnect the purge evap cable and then the the big connector on the bottom which has the bmw anti tamper hose clamp but after those little battles ... rest was easy enough though .. i left the injectors and the rail on the manifold and then when it was loose found it much easier to remove the fuel line

Great production value, thank you. Thanks for the different angles, "b-role", and closeups. Also, thank you for going through the struggle (getting the tube on) as well to show options. Also, thanks for showing us how to clean properly as well and not just talking about it.

For 2006 BMW 330i, is it possible to replace all those pcv hoses with something better? Maybe hard rubber hoses compared to the brittle plastic ones being used? I was thinking of just using clamps with those. Also, how high is the vacuum in those lines?

The power streeler wheel is a very sensitive component and very hard to replace. I would get that checked ASAP... I wouldn't want my streeler wheel covered in oil.

Hey I got told by my mechanic that the pressure at intake was reading low. I ordered a new map sensor but cannot find where it goes. Am I completely wrong, or does the m54 have another way of reading intake pressure? Thanks

20:42 I took off the 2 plastic pipes to inspect them. Both were cracked and fell apart, leaving the end pieces (both pipes did this) with the o-rings stuck inside the engine block. I had to dig them out with picks and screwdrivers. I had no idea they were in THAT bad of shape. I'm glad I pulled them out to inspect them or I might have put everything back together only to have to take it all apart again once they started leaking coolant.

I ended up removing the ccv system and routing a line from the valve cover port down to the ground to avoid smelling the vapors. I Sealed off the two small ports on top of the intake and put a cap on the oil return line port @ the dip stick. 6 months and probably 5 thousand miles later it seems to be runing ok. I'm no enginer- I dont know how much vacuum goes through the system but I need to know what and how much damage it might cause. # 02 E53 X5 @240k

Great video and easy to follow. With the Euro 328i models and the brake booster etc on the opposite side it's a little different. Also the fuel lines are different as there are two lines with one being a return line. The sucking air jet pump is underneath the inlet manifold just above where the metal flap that goes down onto the engine block. The evap solenoid hose and the line to the sucking air jet pump should be fitted before the inlet manifold is put back on. By removing the panel that covers the heater fan motor I had plenty of room at the back of the engine and didn't have to disconnect the fuel lines.

Spell check.... not pool peek, but an oil leak....
steve goosney (6 months ago)
Hi Jason, I've been watching you videos, my wife and I bought a 2002 325i for our kids to learn to drive in... it had a pool peak, thus how I found you. On this video you discussed the disa valve, I think that is what you called it, rockauto calls it an intake manifold actuator... when I turn the flapper and put my finger over the hole, when I let go of the flapper it turns back to where it was.... assuming that means it's dead....? The rebuild kit I've found only has the flapper parts.... your thoughts? Thanks! Steve

Joe Monico (6 months ago)
Your videos are much appreciated! When reinstalling the intake manifold....injectors and fuel rail specifically. Can I assemble the injectors into the rail and slide on the circular retainer clips and then press the whole rail/injector assembly into the intake? I ask this because I'm afraid of sliding on the retainer clips onto the injectors, afterwards (if pressing the rail onto the injectors with injectors having been placed first) and losing the retainers inside the engine - especially with the rear injector and the confined space. Have you tried setting the assembled injector/rail before? Thank you in advance.

Sir, YOU SAVED MY WALLET AND MY LIFE with this video. I fixed all of my vacuum leaks and my car purrs like a kitten now. My level of confidence for getting deeper into my engine has increased tremendously. Now that I have done this, I’ve noted several other jobs that I want to undertake to fix my 2004 325CI. Thank you!!

328i. If you have a 328i, the throttle body is different! The throttle body on the 328i is not electronic. Well, the position sensor is obviously but the movement of it is done via a cable that goes from the thottle pedal to the throttlebody.
Jose G (7 months ago)
Hey 50sKid, I followed both videos to the T as I had to change the coolant pipes below the manifold. Great video btw, changed out CCV and replaced vacuum hoses as well. Took it apart and put it back together, started up rough but smoothed out shortly after. About 40 or 50 miles later I got a check engine, P0332 and P0327 Knock Sensor 1 and 2 Circuit Low Input. I'm not sure what caused this other than me degreasing the engine and maybe getting the connector or the sensors wet but they should have dried by now (its been a week). Took to my mechanic, there's no knocking or anything but engine is low on power, he says that it should go away once it dries (a week or so) Any thoughts?
Michael Phillips (7 months ago)
I love your videos. However, just FYI, but what you refer to as engine grounds at 20:21 are actually the knock sensors.

Thank you so much for your videos! I am a new owner of an 04 325xi, and have replaced all the hoses, boots, cvv, fuel regulater, disa, and the mas. The car runs a lot better the first time you drive it each day. As soon as I turn the car off and turn it back on there is a delay when pressing gas pedal from a complete stop. The car stalls, or almost stalls and runs very sluggish the rest of the day. I’m thinking it’s a sensor because it drives great for the first drive of the day. Please help!!! I’m getting so frustrated and about to get rid of this car but I do love it. You can contact me at [email protected] if you have time. Thanks again so much for all your videos. I am not a mechanic and thanks to you have been able to do everything so far. Thank you for your time. Brad

FYI @50sKID —- DO NOT TIGHTEN YOUR Trottle Body to 11 FtLBS!!! You WILL SNAP THE BOLTS if you have a 2000 528i E39. Might be a different bolt on some of these engines but I could feel the bolts stretch as I kept tightening and against better judgement kept going thankfully I didn’t have to drill it out or have stripped threads on the brass insert on the intake manifold. I set my torque to about 5 and just left it at that. I had to go to Pull-A-Part to get the right bolt and even on a Throttle Body that had never been removed (I’m making a huge assumption on this) It wasn’t nearly 11 FtLBS.

Are E46's still worth quite a bit in USA/Canada? I love your videos and I'd love to do all this work to mine but they're so cheap it's literally not worth it unless you have a unicorn top spec 330ci. My 325ci Sport cost me £1200 and have already spent over £1k in servicing and maintenance still needs loads doing and is simply not worth it. Super sad

BTNHarmony18 (11 months ago)
50s kid, couldn’t have done it without you. A couple critiques and words to the wise. I greatly regretted not marking my electrical harnesses. It takes mere seconds to set up a key system with duct type. Just mark both the female and male connectors with 01 or A, whatever. Putting everything back together will be much simpler. Also, it is very important as you go to mark plastic baggies with wear the bolts/nuts come from. Again, this makes everything so much easier and less stressful on the backend. I had some trouble identifying vacuum lines because they were already severed. If any one needs help on that just message me. Lastly, I did not remove my fuel rail, I simply pushed it to the back, worked fine. Thanks for you me hard work buddy.

50s kid: Thank you so much for your videos. I was able to replace the CCV over a 10 day (following your video to a "T" and ordering all replacement parts/correct tools. I really appreciate you doing this: you've saved me thousand of dollars. *** A note: When I fired the car back up, the ABS, DCS lights came on. I checked on Youtube for those areas and the fix was to: put the car in "N" and turn the wheels left and right....I guess air bubbles where in there? Bam, lights went out in about 8-10 seconds. Once again, you are the best and thank you very much for the video/s.

Big day today, Some TLC for my chariot - 2001 325i 133K kilometres, full cooling system refresh (except heater core), all new gaskets and vacuum lines, CCV, crankshaft sensor and both camshaft sensors, clutch fan delete, OFHG, Oil and filter change, Transmission oil/filter change and pressure valve update..... 11 hours to do the job including fixing things that broke when I tried to remove them... the plastic pipes under the intake manifold broke when I tried to move them. But all worth while, the old girl is running like a Swiss watch now. My thanks to those who put up videos especially the 50sKid....I appreciate your efforts Jason, makes it easier when you know what to expect and how to do it... saved myself about AU$1.5k in labour charges.

hi,I watch your videos and I think they are very informative,but I have a question about the disa valve is it supposed to operate all the time, even if you don't rive up the motor too 3-4 k rpms ? I read about it in bimmerforums mine works when I test with 12 volts running threw it and test the harness and juice running threw it ,but my scanner says the disa valve help ,help any kind of info would be greatly appreciated

HELP! ANYONE! First off awesome video. Thanks for taking the time and explaining everything as you go! My father and I just finished putting (we hope) everything back together. However once we reconnected the battery something began spooling up in the engine compartment. I stuck my hand inside and found that the starter was spooling up and hot to the touch. Mind you the car is still off. Turning the car on has no effect just a constant spooling sound from the starter. Any and all help is appreciated!

Mike Raphone (1 year ago)
great information. I removed the top pipe connected to the valve cover inserted a hose that fit inside that and lite up cigar. Blew the smoke down in it and saw it come up from somewhere below. After getting the junk out of the way I tried the smoke back inand saw the smoke coming up from the sock kniotted material that goes around the pipe going from the valve to the dipstcik.I assume if the pipe did not leak it would have been a simple test to see if the ccv system would have some back pressure.Anyhow the smoke came out so time to replace the plastic.

Just finished the job for the second time. Removing the Intake is the only way to go, trying to jam a cold weather kit in with the manifold in place is too difficult. I ended up cracking the middle between the cyclone and the diaphragm on install. These directions are perfect! and yanking the manifold is pretty simple. Have your gaskets and a new CCV kit ready to go, and you'll have everything right in a few hours. Thanks!!!!!

Great videos mate i have oil consumption problem 1L for 1k mile its from ccv system ? If no how can i diagnose that my ccv is failed and need replacement ?
Hey man, first of all thanks for the great videos! I've referenced them all through a head gasket repair and now the car is running great but I've been chasing a P0171 for a day now and everything appears to be good as I just went back through checking all hoses and connections but before I pull the valve cover to check gasket for leaks or cracks in the cover I noticed the oil filler cap looks a little suspect. I think it may be bad, this would cause enough of a vacuum leak to eventually throw a code if it wasn't sealing properly, right?
Last update. Code P1188 kept coming up. I finally built a smoke tester and found a huge hole where the valve cover had cracked by the center grommet. New valve cover and finally all systems ready for smog. I wish I had done the smoke test sooner.
Okay, so the new gaskets are sealing good and the new cap as well. Still threw codes so I turned my attention to the O2 sensors and what did I find out? I found out that I'm a dumbass. I somehow had bank one O2 sensors in bank two and visa versa. Swapped them and cleared the codes and its been 35 miles of driving with no errors. I'm surprised that it ran so well with them reversed. Anyways, runs great now.
Think I found the source of my frustration. I decide to pull the coil packs for cylinder 1 and 3 as everything is pointing to bank 1 and the misfires are on those cylinders and low and behold the coil boots are covered in oil. Pulling the valve cover now. I suspect the center gasket is toast.
Thanks for the confirmation. So I take an inspection of the hoses without removing too much and decide to put it back together and use the oil cap from my daughters 325i. and it immediately threw 3 codes. P1188 and P0301 and P0303 misfires. Do you think on of the bank 1 02 sensors could be bad and sending bad databack to the ECM to lean out the fuel? I thought of going to buy the supplies to make a smoke test to rule out the possibility of vacuum leak but I can just borrow 02 sensors from the 325i if need be to test. I'm not sure what direction to go with this now. Your thoughts are appreciated.

Don't forget the upgraded COLD WEATHER oil dipstick tube. It is not usually included in the cold weather CCV kit (which I had done 3 years ago but I found later I had the factory oil dipstick tube, which the CCV drains into and can easily get blocked). I ordered the genuine BMW part, and had it installed with a new oil O-ring to connect it to the oil pan (very very hard to get the O ring to seat properly).

Ah, good tip.

in my opinion its much easier with oil filter housing removed. So best way is do both jobs(ccv and oil filter housing gasket replacement) at the samew time.thx for great video Jason.

Hey 50skid, I saw you linked the Radium Engineering catch can kit. Do you know how quickly these fill up / How often to drain? I recently did a CCV job like in your video (Thank you so much for your videos, they help a ton!), but I just wanted to prepare for the future and might switch to a catch can when my CCV cracks again.

Great explanation and video, mate. Thank you. If you have time, can you please give me some advice? I am Perth Western Australia and have an E46 318i with an N42 engine. ON starting from cold (it doesn't get very cold here though) the engine stutters and the accelerator pedal position makes no difference. It will stutter for about ten to 15 seconds and then die. It may do this twice. Turn the key off and then start again and it will run smoothly. I have replaced the MAF with no difference. Any ideas?

I just replaced my ccv I did not disconnect the battery prior to starting the job, I removed all electrical connections while the battery was connected. Everything is back together, when I started the car it was idling around 1200rpms it warmed up and dropped to maybe 1100, way too high. Then when I put the car in drive I got no throttle response when pushing the gas pedal, it can get up to about 40mph slowly. Did I mess up any settings by not disconnecting the battery before I disconnected the throttle body or did I just plug in something in the wrong spot since I've read about ppl doing just that and having this issue? This was not a happening prior to

50sKid so I tried to move the car to start going back through my connections and it wouldn't start up now. I had it running Wednesday evening although it wasn't right it did at least start up. I read on forums where if you have some connections plugged in wrong it can blow a 30amp fuse for the fuel pump...have you heard of this? My battery is less than a year old fyi. Or could a jump in these freezing temps in the Midwest be needed?

Jelani Perry you plugged something in wrong. Maybe the disa valve connector is switched around. Go back through the job.

I trying to figure out if my head gasket is blown the 2 cooling lines that run under the manifold are leaking. Theres no white smoke or rough idle, and it runs great. But I loose coolant like crazy, any ideas?
50sKid (1 year ago)
+JAMES EARLY well you can use a leakdown test to see if air is leaking into the radiator, however it does not always work perfectly. For instance, I’m rebuilding the Toyota 4Runner engine right now and it was leaking coolant into the cylinders like crazy yet the leakdown test didn’t spit out air into the radiator because the head gasket was blown right in the area between two cylinders so the path of least resistance was into the adjacent cyl. But in your case it may work. You can also get a chemical tester that is sort of like a big turkey blaster that sucks air from the radiator and sees if it turns a fluid a different color if it contains exhaust gasses. Search YouTube for videos on that. I would try the leakdown test first.

Starting at 14:49, there are a couple vacuum hoses connected to the back of the manifold that you take out prior to removing the manifold. Well, as it turns out, I don't have those hoses. I have 2005 330Ci ZHP...Do you know why I wouldn't have the aforementioned tubes?
50sKid (1 year ago)
They just changed a few things, don't worry about it. If you have caps there, leave them there. Just make sure nothing is open all the time--that would be a vacuum leak.

Did you need to re-program the throttle body?
50sKid (1 year ago)
No you shouldn't need to do that unless you replace it with a different one.

My fuel rail is a little hard to take off. I have an 03 325ci. Is it okay/safe to put some type of oil to make it easier to take off or just keep trying to pull it off?

So my crankcase vent hose broke while I was taking out my intake manifold. Is it possible/safe to use a different hose like a rubber vacuum hose to replace it or do I really need to have that exact hose?
50sKid (1 year ago)
Yeah that will be fine but I do prefer silicone spray as it is rubber safe. Also try wiggling your fuel injectors side to side to break loose the o-rings

Hi Jayson im just taking a chance if you could help me out? What i did is change the ccv,cleaned the TB and ICV and make sure all connectors are tightly intact. After i connect all connectors and the engine did start for some reason gas pedal has no response i mean if step on it my feet goes way down but no response its like no sound bromm...you know sounds on pedal when you step on it. I got EML light on, Triangular light is on,ABS is on,Seatbelt light in on. I do have misfires1 and 2 cylinders and visible large cracked on my upper intake boot.Do you think its the throttle body? Sound of my engine is like catching its breath. But it doesnt die just no response from the gas pedal/Throttle. Thank you very much.

50sKid Hi Jayson Does an e46 325xi 2001 has a throttle accelator cable? Thank you.
Natalie Jane (1 year ago)
Jayson this it what my engine sounds like. Thank you for the your time. https://youtu.be/dDo-huqOxAQ

Jayson, what is the connection of a cracked intake boot from the throttle response? My gas pedal is so ease to step all way down.
Natalie Jane (1 year ago)
50sKid thank you
50sKid (1 year ago)
Well if you have a cracked intake boot that would be a massive vacuum leak and that would explain it.
