E46 PCV / crankcase vent valve / pressure regulator

Hi guys,

So changed this on my 2005 e46 330i not more than a week ago, along with all the pipes.

So after doing the breaks today and taking it around the block, so when i switched it of, i heard a gush of wind from the engine bay after 5-20sec, right there i got abit worried, so switched her on again and took of the oil cap while idling, and there was some sucking, and not the good kind ..........

So has the unit gone again for some odd reason, or was this a faulty unit??

Any ideas why the unit would die again in such a very short period of time??

Any suggestions
