Part 1- Replacing a BMW 6-cylinder valve cover gasket
PART 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-TLgNCmTlY PART 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6MwYafETIA BLOG ARTICLE: http://blog.bavauto.com/go/vcg "Like" us on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/BavarianAutosport "Follow" us on Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/BavAuto "Subscribe" to us on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/BavarianAuto Visit our online store - http://www.bavauto.com/ All of the items shown in these videos are available in our online store at http://www.bavauto.com/. Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In this two part video series Otto will show you how to replace the valve cover gasket on the M50, M52, M52TU, M56, M54, S50, S52 and S54 6-cylinder BMW engines. These engines have been used in various 3, 5, X and Z models from the early '90s through the mid '00s. Note that while these procedures are shown on an E53 X5 (00-06) BMW with the M54 3.0 engine, they can also be applied to the E36, E46, E34, E39, E60, E85 and E86 3, 5, X and Z 6-cylinder models. Some will look slightly different or have slightly different hardware but, the basic points and procedures are the same. --- Part 1 - Valve cover removal steps: In this video we will remove the valve cover on a BMW 2002 3.0i X5. Part-2 covers the installation. For a list of the parts and tools used, see the accompanying BLOG post at: http://blog.bavauto.com/go/VCG 1) Some models require that the cowl HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) air inlet tray be removed in order to allow full access to the engine valve cover. This E53 X5 does not require removal of the cowl tray. 2) Remove the engine trim cover. Pry out the two round trim plugs on the trim cover. Remove the two 10mm nuts or bolts. Lift the plastic trim cover off and set aside. NOTE: This earlier "coil on plug" model has the coils secured into place via studs and nuts. On these models, remove the two 10mm securing nuts and pry the metal harness clamp upward to release the harness plug. The coil can then be pulled up and removed. Later M54 engine used the later "pencil style" coils. These coils do not have any bolts or nuts securing them in place. They can just be pulled up and out. See the "pencil coil" replacement video at: http://blog.bavauto.com/go/coils2/ 3) Release the securing clips and pull the harness plugs from the ignition coils. 4) Remove the nuts or bolts securing the coil frames to the valve cover and pull the coils up and out. See note above if you have the "pencil coils" that do not have nut or bolt securing hardware. 5) Unclip the coil plug harness assembly and set aside. Unclip the oxygen sensor harnesses and set aside. 6) Remove the valve cover securing nuts. Loosen and remove in an expanding spiral pattern, starting in the middle of the valve cover. 7) Gently remove the valve cover. Be very careful if applying any prying. this can easily crack the plastic valve covers. 8) Clean the cylinder head gasket mating surfaces with brake parts cleaner and a clean cloth. Now, click on to Part-2 and continue with the installation of the new valve cover gaskets and replacement of the valve cover assembly. --- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

DIY : http://germanautosolutions.com/DISA_DIY.html DISA (from the german "DIfferenzierte SAuganlage", means differential air intake) valve controls the variable length intake manifold giving better torque at low revs by closing, keeping the intake runner long. After higher revs above 4k, it opens up and makes the intake runners shorter for more horsepower.

How to Wash Your BMW Engine Bay & Diagnose Oil Leaks - Part 1 of 4
DIY GOALS: Degreasing and Cleaning Engine Bay, Checking for fluid and oil leaks DIY TIME: 1 hour DIY Special Tools: None needed (unless you want to remove the fan) DIY COSTS: About $10 for Engine Degreaser, Engine Detailer, Armor-All, Aluminum Foil, Zip Lock Baggies and other cleaning agents that you may want to use. The BMW M54 Engine and it's engine bay design are shared between several BMW Vehicles from 1998 through 2006. These are the E46 3 series, E39 5 series, Z3/Z4 3.0, X3/X5 3.0 and the early years E60 5 series. So this DIY for washing the M54 engine and checking for basic Oil leaks can be applied to other BMW cars besides the E46 3 series. In the DIY when I refer to the M54 I am referencing to all the cars. That said this DIY for Engine washing can be used as a general guide for any modern era BMW vehicle. I spent a lot of time looking for an online DIY for washing the Engine Bay of a car to find there was none. There was lots of various advice ranging like lathering down the entire bay with degreaser and power hosing it to hell and back. I also read advice saying never use water on an engine bay and to just use a toothbrush and rag with some light degreaser and WD40 to clean the entire bay. I did not have all week to clean the engine nor was I going to go in there like Rambo and power hose it down like many Youtube videos on engine washing tend to show. After combing through some better information and talking with my friend at BMW's Mt Kisco Dealership in Westchester, NY I discovered the best method was the simplest, cheapest and most safe. First lets clear up one popular engine washing debate: 1. Power hosing your car's engine bay is bad - This is both true and false. Some vehicles especially SUVs like Jeeps and Range Rovers are specifically designed with parts under the hood that can withstand a pressurized blast of water or the prolonged presence of water in the engine bay. Alternators and other electrical components on these SUVs and cars can be hosed down with liquid water and the vehicle will start and drive perfect even with the engine still wet. The alternator and "opened" electrical connectors in the M54 bay may or may not be designed to be watered down but do not take any chances. Also since the forever-dirty and leaking Power Steering fluid reservoir sits an inch or two above the alternator it will usually always need several bouts of degreasing and hosing down. So it is best to assume your M54 or BMW alternator MUST be covered up to be protected from not only water but also from the chunky grime and gunk that will be hosed off of the power steering housing. Keep in mind that all cars and engine bays are created different even between BMW vehicles so power hosing may be fine for some cars but for other cars it may not. That said, besides DIYing this job yourself, the BMW Dealership (They charge $125 and bill it under Car Spa) is probably the best place to get this risky labor done on your car since they would know what parts can or can't get wet. Whereas a car wash employee that makes $5 per hour who usually power hose engine bays when detailing cars may not remember to put your car on a pedestal as he drags the hose towards your open engine bay.

BMW E46 M3 Spark Plugs Replacement DIY 3 Series Spark Plug Change Bimerok
This do it yourself video shows how to replace spark plugs on 2005 BMW M3. This procedure is pretty much the same on all 3 series e46 chassis. The spark plugs that BMW uses on M3 models are NGK DCPR8EKP or Bosch FGR8KQC. I used NGK. You can get them from Advanced Auto Parts for $13 a piece where as BMW charging you $26 for the exact same spark plugs. Not that other non-M3 e46 models use different model spark plugs.

Testing for Leaking/Bent Valves
--Please Read-- :) Some of the best advice I can offer you about fixing your car is to search for an online forum related to your car, or even for your specific engine. If you have a popular car or engine, this can be an amazing tool in diagnosing and fixing cars yourself! -------------------------------------------------------------- Directions 1. Get kerosene, gasoline, or break cleaner. 2. Tilt head on its side, with the ports of the valves you're testing pointing up and exposed. 3. Fill the intake or Exhaust ports with the liquid you chose, make sure to use enough liquid to cover the back of the valve head completely inside the port. 4. Look at the valve surface in the combustion chamber for leakage. (Let it sit for several minutes) 5. If there is a leak, you could have a bent valve or just a bad seal of the valve to the head. You might have to replace the valve, or just use some lapping compound to lap the valve/seat to resurface. 6. Repeat for the other side if you wish. 7. This is a great time to replace valve seals if you have noticed they are worn too much. 8. If you have any questions, please post them here and I'll try to answer them quickly. -------------------------------------------------------------- You just tilt the head on one side or the other depending whether you want to test the intake or Exhaust valves. I'm testing the intake valves in this video. I did this way because I didn't have the leakdown test equipment, but also because I wanted to replace my head gasket anyway. I wouldn't say this is the best way to test initially if you suspect leaking or bent valves because it requires you remove the head. Try just a regular leakdown test first. But if you're taking it off anyway it's pretty nifty and doesn't require the leakdown test tools. There are several methods to do this, this is just the one I chose in my situation.

In this video we will remove and replace the valve cover gasket and re-install the valve cover on our BMW 2002 3.0i X5. Part-1 covers the removal. For a list of the parts and tools used, see the accompanying BLOG post at: http://blog.bavauto.com/go/VCG 9) Pry the old gasket pieces from the valve cover. Be careful not to chip or crack the valve cover. 10) Clean the gasket mating surfaces with brake parts cleaner and a clean cloth. 11) Install the valve cover gasket sections ( main gasket and the spark plug hole gaskets). 12) Apply the Reinzosil gasket sealant to the 1/2-round "humps" on the valve cover gasket ends (single VANOS applications have humps only at the rear, double VANOS has humps at the front and rear). Apply the sealant ONLY to the humps and into the corners of the humps. Also apply a very small amount of the sealant to the cylinder head surface where the cylinder head meets the VANOS cover on the left and right gasket rails. 13) Install the valve cover. Be careful while positioning the cover, that you do not catch the gasket on the exposed valvetrain or other hardware. Additionally, make certain that the various wires and vacuum hoses that run along the lower side of the cylinder head and around the rear of the head, do not get pinched between the head and the valve cover. 14) Install the valve cover securing nuts with new sealing bushings. 15) Start to tighten the nuts in an outward spiral pattern, starting in the middle of the valve cover. Just snug the nuts on the first round, then apply the final torque on a second round. Torque values are found in the applicable Bentley repair manual. 16) Reinstall the coils, 17) Reinstall the oxygen sensor harnesses, coil harnesses and any other hardware that was moved. 18) Plug the coil harness plugs in and secure the clips 19) Install the valve cover trim cover, Click to Part-1 for removal of the valve cover and gaskets. --- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
