I thought that when you unplugged the vanos the problem didn't arise. If it did then it's not the vanos..You say that you replaced the plugs last year--try a new plug in the #3 hole and see what happens just for s--t and giggles. If it still has no effect-then try this-when cold and someone else cranking the car--have the cover off of the engine and turn on some butane out of a tourch and bring it over the point that #3 intake bolts onto the head. Lets see you have a small vac leak on your intake gasket that only occurs when the engine is cold.
