faulty OSV valve

The OSV is a PCV valve found on the rear side of the intake manifold. There is an OSV pipe that also runs beneath the intake manifold as well. This osv valve goes bad I read every 60,000 miles. When this goes bad, your X5 4.4 will puff bluish smog out the tailpipes. Another weak flaw of BMW.
