- For the O.P. and for those reading this thread...

- If you have NOT done so, then read the infamous thread by "BavarianE39 CCV Mod", I did this mod a few years ago:

1. This mod reduces oil consumption from 1 qt/300 miles to zero!

2. This mod avoids the problem of the CCV freezing, causing hydrolock.
BTW, the hydrolock caused by oil is usually reversible, i.e., engine not destroyed, simply b/c the amount of liquid ingested is not as bad as let's say driving through water and the engine sucks in LARGE amount of water.

Anyway, I highly recommend the CCV Mod.

Agreed....do the mod, especially if in the north. My car was a California car so had never even been thought of as something to do. Unfortunately, my engine detonated and cracked the block, so a simple reversal was not in the cards, tried it and got it to run but that was about it.

Personally I would do some tearing down if the engine to see if you can pin point the issue. If you’re looking at a cracked block you can get an engine for around 900-1700$ from car-part.com which is a site where dealers part out their cars and there is a ton of X5 on there. I did a search for your year and model and there are engines available.

While parked at the mechanic, someone backed into it and caved in the door. His insurance issued me a check for $2000 for the repair. I found a door, same color with a VIN just a few away from mine...may have been painted the same day...that was $250 delivered. So...$1850 for door and engine which I applied the $2000 check to. My mechanic installed the engine, hung the door, swapped over all the internal components, glass, interior panel, etc then installed my air bag emulator I bought and had the car completely detailed and ceramic coated...all for $2300. So, I was out $2150 net. Now, today I just wrote a check for a yaw sensor replacement $650 Inc tax. My son better appreciate this!

That certainly makes a lot more sense. Lol. I didn't see the original date for the post until just now. Glad it all worked out!
