    I'll write up the routine a bit later, but, the PCV's (sometimes called check control valves) have always been a problem on the M60, M62 and M62TUB V8's - and they seem to be just as much of a problem on the N62. Have a look at this pair! So, one gummed up one, and a split one! At least...

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Are there any guides around on how to change the crankcase breather on an E90 320d (M47)?? I've looked at it and it's buried at the back of the engine bay. Doesn't look particularly easy to do.
