    Guys, I've got a new oil separator and set of 4 pipes. I'm planning to remove the inlet manifold to fit the new parts as this appears to be the recommended approach (I know some have done it with the manifold in situ though). My question is, do I need to get new inlet manifold gaskets or are...

    Regarding the Oil breather / separator on the 2l & 3l Diesels. Being an 07 year it will be the Vortex version, do these actually get resticted / blocked? Car has covered 47'000 miles and i'm sure its still the original breather. During recent work to change out the engine thermostat, I...

    I finally got round to putting the car in to the local BMW indy. It was smoking in the mornings and when i left work it would blow out a massive puff of smoke. Oil in the manifold and throttle body. Changed the crankcase pipe and the pipe from the separator to the dipstick. Still did it. They...

    Hi All, I am desperately looking for a DIY on how to replace the Oil Separator Valve on the car above. Specifically on how to remove the intake manifold, or the easiest way of doing this. I know for a fact that I have seen one, but after searching myself blue in the face I cannot find it...

    Just done this upgrade today and glad I did too! The old, "loo roll" style filter was just like tar. New separator came with all new seals so exchanged everything. Out of interest, does anyone know when the new style was introduced? My car is 04 with over 160k on the clock and to be honest was...
