    I have a e90 318i (n46 engine), and recently had to replace o-rings for the VANOS solenoids as well as o-rings for the intake and exhaust camshaft sensors as they were leaking oil. After doing the repair, the check engine light came on, and when I scanned with INPA it reads 2A83 error code. The...

    This is for the first tike I have not been able to find a part via Realoem. On my car with the N52B30 engine there are 2 Vanos Solonoids. These have connectors that are held in place with a metal thingie that makes sure the connector does not come loos when driving 200kph on the German...

    Hi, Fault code: 2A83 When the car is idling, it is unable to maintain the revs and eventually shuts down. When the car drives in 1 and 2, the car cheats a lot and jumps. The Vanos solenoid has been replaced and the camshaft position sensors have been replaced. When I test the vano's exhaust...

    Hi guys, Title summarises the issue nicely. My car is a 2006 E92 325i with the 2.5 N52 (Euro spec, UK) at 148k miles. When the car is started cold, I have no funny issues, car has normal power, all is well. If the car is stopped and restarted once the oil reaches around 80 degrees Celsius (176...

    Please Help..... The current situation is dealership is saying the car more than likely jumped time and or the timing guide rails needs to be replaced (key word here is "likely" because they are not sure) I had a small oil leak from gasket. I took to a mechanic to have the gasket replaced...
  7. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    I have a BMW 116i with the N45 engine which I just changed out the chain and tensioner, because it was worned out. Now after putting it back together, i still have a rattle from the top end of the engine. And when I plug in one of the two VANOS valves it starts idling very badly. I have tried...
  8. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I just had my BMW E65 2003 in for an oil leak. They say they replaced 6 Vanos non return valves? Is there really 6 non return valves?

    Hi guys, I came here to search for some answers. I got a used bmw325i a couple of weeks ago and it drove fine until it went into limp mode with no lights. I searched and found a couple of things. after scanning the car I got the code P1056 for the VVT. I got 2 from the yard (just to make sure)...

    Hello everyone, my e39 528i with the replacement m54b30 has been acting up, and I started a thread about it close to a year ago. This is just a new thread and my old one still exists about this problem. Main problems: Code p1397 Rattle sound from around intake or intake side Fix attempts...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I've replaced my VANOS solenoids a few days ago, and today, the check engine light turned on while driving. I noticed a huge difference in the throttle response / power, so I immediately thought about the solenoids. I loaded INPA in and read all of the error codes, and indeed, it was both the...

    I stripped a bolt in my Vanos system, as I was trying to extract it I drilled into the metal underneath it, will this effect my Vanos system at all? it is in-between the bolt and the rubber so I am curious if it matters. thanks guys (its underneath the striped bolt)

  14. 5 Series
    I’m in the middle of a head gasket replacement on cylinders 1-4 on my son’s 1999 540i after a head rebuild, and can’t keep the intake cam in time (more details below*). We’re somewhat new to digging into BMW engines, and we’ve come to realize the careful detail required. We’ve both learned much...
  15. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Greetings, I underwent a procedure to rebuild the Vanos on my M54b30, seals needle bearings and anti rattle rings were replaced. All went surprisingly well. It came to me putting it all back together, I placed the Vanos unit onto the front of the block and installed the first Alan screw into...

    Hi there, I have a 535i with the N55 engine. Lately it has started to throw the error code 130304 which is - depending on translation - Vanos Exhaust, camshaft clamped. The workshop has tested the vanos system and found it ok, after a second visit they changed the vanos exhaust solenoid. I keep...
  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi there. I was hoping to post here to see if anyone had a similar experience and may suggest what is causing the strange sound coming out during a cold start and idle on my 2010 328i Xdrive. I have two codes as follows: P052B and P0012. P052B = Cold Start A Camshaft Position Timing...
  18. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hello all, I'm here to ask for a little bit of help. For future reference, I've got an m54b30 engine in my e39 which came with the m52b28tu, so I have the Intake manifold from the 2.8 on the 3.0, but that's the only big difference from the m54 that's in the e46 and my e39. I'm running into an...
  19. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    2A7A - Camshaft position control, deactivation. I believe one of the valves were open during a walnut blast and some got in there. Friend believes some might be in the oil pump causing my issues. When I turn it on it idles great for 20 seconds before the half engine shows and this code (along...

    Hi guys. So I'm new to this so please bear with me. I'm really struggling with my car. So what happened is that a few weeks back while driving the vehicles revs went over 5k and wouldn't change in to the next gear. So I slowed down and turn over and the vehicle died. Showed a lot of warning...
