I am due for another oil change shortly and may try this to see if it helps the situation. Based on this info I will still connect the rubber hose just in case and can close it off later if it creates a problem. Very annoying, like having a hole in the air inlet system. Not much faith to be truthful, but then cost was minimal and worth investing a little time. I used the updated braided version I had left over from last year when I changed all the rubber hoses. On the other hand, my 2006 X5 3.

Replaced with 5w 40 fully synthetic. The first time I tried it, the distribution unit was just piped into the valve cover tubing. Hook the mounting bracket back into the two slots on the chassis. I'd like to forward their gratitude to you also. On one hand, I believe you guys who report less oil consumption.

So no need to connect the hose to the valve cover vacuum outlet. The E53 does not have electronically controlled calipers. The Repair Cost graphically displays approximately how expensive the repair will be to perform. If so, it does seem like a relatively simple fix. E46 general module coding is possible.

So, I am not sure how this mod reduces oil consumption. After eliminating the usual suspects i was left with nothing but the dreadful prospect of an engine job. Then went on holiday to Northumberland total mileage 1,400 mainly on motorway driving at legal limit. This is using M1 5W30, which is a little on the thin side for this engine. Low oil light doesn't come on when you're down a quart. I am using the M56 valve cover on my newer engine now, and like that, but you would need to find all the parts to make that work. With everything out of the way, you will have to undo the bolt that holds down the dipstick, and 2 nuts and 1 bolt that holds down the wiring harness conduit.

It is a vibrant and active community populated exclusively by homosexuals, closeted homosexuals, and 4ngie. Bluebee made a post asking why these ports are capped, why the M52 engine has a rubber hose connected to it, but not the M54, etc.

I have not been monitoring since but I do add oil very frequently growing weary of that so I suspect it is about the same. Yes, I know it does not meet the spec, but I never seem to go past 5000-6000 miles anyway. I can't explain why elevated vacuum and catch cans work for some people. As the difficulty level rises expect the repair to demand more time, use more specialized tools, and require a better understanding of mechanics to complete the job. He's told me , that the springs in the newer systems are too strong to keep oil usage in check.

M54 oil consumption solved (better than catch

This thread is a worthy continuation of 02 Pilots thread. I then tried it after using a catch can system, that I devised which works much better on my newer engine, and it worked about 6 months also. It seemed to work for a very short time but really, it didin't help much. Coding and serious diagnostics should always be done over a wire in my opinion. As these little beasties collect in your fuel filter they restrict the flow of gasoline, causing a drop in engine and a loss in performance and efficiency. I didn't install the Catch can on this engine.
