Valve Steam Seal Repair

August 8, 2017

 You have a smoking BMW due to bad valve stem seals. The valve stem seal problem is that the old valve stem seal becomes hard over time and doesn’t provide the proper seal between the seal and stem. This allows oil to pass through and enter the combustion chamber and exhaust. The oil consumption here is bad for a lot of different reasons. Obviously smoking, but also decreased catalytic converter life. We’ve seen a number of cars that have set CAT inefficiency codes and these codes can go away if you replace the seals if done in time.

We use the AGA N62 Valve Stem Seal Tool Kit, created by All German Auto.  We perform the Valve Stem Seal Repair without removing the engine, cylinder heads, or cams. This repair saves you on hours of labor, which saves you thousands of dollars.

Doing this job eliminates smoking from the exhaust, reduces risk of damaging cat converters and plugging the secondary air injection. It also allows the car to pass Smog. 


We have created the the Valve Steam Repair Kit to save our customers thousands of dollars! Want more information? Give us a call at (760)738-4626
