  1. BMW E63/E64 V8 - N62 Engine - Stop Smoking (if you are lucky) - often attributed to Valve Guide Seals

    Technical Guides for BMW E24, E63, E64, F12, F13.
    I'm always surprised when members go off immediately to a mechanic when the car starts smoking on idle and when accelerating - from my own experience 50% - 60% of smoking cases are actually the Pressure Control Valves rather than the Valve Stem Seals. If you have smoking problems, do this first!
