A brief explanation of VANOS


The BMW VANOS (Variable Nockenwellen Steuerung) is a unit that provides variable valve timing of the intake and/or exhaust valves. This variable valve timing is obtained by inducing a rotation of the camshaft by means of plungers/pistons combined with electrically controlled valves.

This way, BMW is able to generate the most ideal valve timing/camshaft timing at both low and high rpm.


The problems can be roughly divided into 3 main groups:

✓ The plungers/pistons have an internal oil leakage that prevents the correct number of degrees of camshaft rotation (reduced torque & performance, worse engine running and possible error codes in the engine management system).

✓ There is a rattling noise coming from the upper part of the motor due to excessive bearing play on the shaft(s) of the VANOS.

✓ VANOS solenoid valves malfunction causing the plungers/pistons to fail.


If you own a BMW 6 or 8 cylinder (gasoline) of the 1993-2006 model year that has driven more than 60,000 km, your VANOS has problems of which you are probably unaware.


✓ Increased fuel consumption (up to 10%).
✓ Reduced torque and power, especially in the area up to 3,000 rpm.
✓ Withholding/shocking of the engine in the lower load/rev ranges.
✓ Rattling engine noise coming from the upper part of the engine.
✓ Uneven power delivery with increasing engine speed.
✓ Poor and irregular idling.
✓ Poor drive-off behavior/buckling due to reduced power especially with air conditioning on.
✓ Idle "fetch" or even complete engine stalling in cold weather (M52TU 1998-2000).
✓ VANOS error codes in the engine management.
