And then there's a number of issues. The valve cover on the passenger side leaks like crazy, the steering doesn't want to turn, and there is still a start up clatter that happens when the car has been sitting more than a couple minutes. So now I'm looking into taking it back apart to rebuild the Vanos and address the oil leak, and I'm really hoping the steering issue is due to a gummed up u-joint, given it sat for a couple months in a lot where the ground was made of dirt with the consistency of flour. There also sounds like what might be a very mild exhaust leak, but that could be the Vanos. I was ready to take it for its first proper test drive, too.
