    I know I can clearly hear the lifter tick, caused by oil starvation when my oil level sensor went bad. I'm trying to figure out if the rattle/metallic/grinding noise I hear at high rpm and full throttle/load is possible VANOS rattle. Any help is appreciated! I can clearly hear this rattle sound...

    Looking for some assistance regarding possible Vanos issues. I have an 01 m3 and I recently refreshed my vanos unit with Beisan System seals. I did not have any codes so i did not get a new vanos solenoid pack. I also did not go with the Beisan Systems oil pump disk and instead opted for the...

    I have a 2002 320i touring with the M54B22 engine, and from what I can tell by reading, I have double vanos but is there any way for me to confirm this? Or is it guaranteed that I have it? Thanks

    Servus, habe gestern mein Vanos ĂĽberholt, die Dichtungen und alles ist super gelaufen, anti-rasseln kit auch alles perfekt... Am Ende habe ich den Vanos zurĂĽck auf mein Auto gebaut und die Abdeckschrauben mit 50nm angezogen. Leider habe ich diese kleine Vanos-Kolben-Kappen vergessen aber da...

    Hi everyone, Simple question: Is Vanos of the same nature as rod bearings, meaning that when they go bad the entire engine can go bad? Or is this a job that I can do once they go bad? Kindly let me know your thoughts. Bests!

    So I’ve done how you guys have told me get a new vanos from pick your part and instal it, everything’s good I just want to know if it’s safe to clean it using a pressure washer? Of course I won’t put it in, wet I’ll wait till it’s fully dry

    So I recently charge my spark plugs, ignition coils and oil because my m3 was startling when I remove my leg from the gas pedal. I went to near by autozone and got a quick scan which came back as misfiring at cyl 1,2,3,4 with basic scan tool. So I came both spark plugs and ignition coil and...

    I recently noticed when I place my foot lightly on the clutch pedal of my E46 M3, I feel a repetitive subtle click as the engine is running. It increases in frequency as the revs increase and feels almost like a pulse. I listened carefully to the engine with the hood open, the click I feel...

    Hi everyone, i've been digging around trying to solve this issue for a while, but can't pin-point anything specific. I've got an 03 325Ci, manual. 143k miles. The problem is as follows; I'll start the car, pull away fine. I come to a road exit for example, fully stop, now when I go to pull out...

    Hello, does anybody know if you have to retime your engine when you remove the timing components from a m52tu? I did a head gasket job and removed the timing components to pull the head but locked the camshafts so they wouldn’t move. I zip tied the 2 sprockets connected to the chain that moves...

    Hi, I am getting Cylinder 3 misfire with fuel shut off randomly on cold start ups. I can feel the misfire and, if I turn the car off and then back on, the misfire goes away. I have checked my coils and plugs and those seems fine. The misfire starting occurring after I changed the valve cover...

    I have made some bad decisions in my time, but I think my choice of mechanic has taken the top spot for worst decision so far. A series of bad choices on my part led me to let an incompetent mechanic change the engine in my 320Ci, and after getting the engine changed I have an issue that is...

    Today i did my Valve cover gasket. The job was easy until it came the time of taking the cover itself off. The 20 year plastic was so brittle that broke right away, sending pieces all over the head. I did my best cleaning up the mess with a rag, pliers and vacuum. I will add this as a bonus...

    Hey everyone, First time long time I got a great deal on an manual M3 competition but it needed a couple small seals replaced. Knocked those out and did the vanos up with all beisan parts save the rattle kit and cam bolts. Was DDing that configuration for about 6 months without issue Last...

    Hey guys, I wanted to put this out there in case anyone else has a similar issue. Ever since I got my car (2003 e46 325Ci Cabrio) I've been suffering from poor fuel economy but just thought that it was 'normal' since I drive the car like a bat out of hell pretty much all the time. Recently I...

    Hello guys, I'm a first time poster, but a lot of threads here helped me and my friends solve some problems on our BMWs, so I wanted to thank all who share their knowledge. Now, to my problem, I have the dreadful P0014 error code. When i bought my E46 320i FL (2.2l M54 engine, 2003) the vanos...

    Hi guys, I need your input on whether to keep this rebuilt vanos that I just bought and put it onto my engine, or whether that looks weird and I should return it? The seller has good reviews on the rebuilt vanos and communication was good. Basically, when I received the vanos, I saw this...
