BMW VANOS Units & Parts

The BMW VANOS system (variable Nockenwellensteuerung - variable camshaft timing) was introduced in the early 1990s as a way of altering timing based on RPM and engine load to improve torque delivery, fuel economy, and engine smoothness. The first systems were single-VANOS and operated the intake cam only. Beginning in 1999, double-VANOS was introduced that did both intake and exhaust banks (on both inline-6 and V8 engines).

By 150,000 miles the original VANOS actuator solenoids, seals, and o-rings are usually due for a complete replacement. Some individual pieces may have been replaced already. Signs of a dying unit are loud marble-like rattles from the front of the engine, loss of power and mid-range torque, poor fuel economy, and fault codes for misfires and VANOS-related sensors. VANOS sensors, solenoids, and some other parts are available separately. VANOS units can be rebuilt by sourcing the seals and o-rings on their own but that process still requires expert mechanical knowledge and special tools. We prefer to offer complete, rebuilt VANOS units to make the replacement as seamless and trouble-free as possible for you.

Note: all VANOS systems require special tools for correct repair and replacement. These tools are BMW specific. If you do not possess these tools we strongly advise you to bring the parts to a qualified and experienced BMW technician who does.

On the M62TU engine the VAN0S solenoids on both banks are buried behind the timing covers. This makes it impossible to use a wrench on them. They're also an extra-large 32mm hex size which most people won't have in their toolbox. This socket is the factory BMW tool for removing the solenoids in the M62TU. It's a thin wall for easy access in the timing cover and a 1/2" drive.

When doing any sort of repair or maintenance there is no replacement for genuine factory parts. Turner Motorsport carries the Genuine BMW brand with pride and has the parts you need to complete your next project with confidence.

The BMW VANOS system is integral to the performance of your engine. VAN0S is a variable camshaft timing system that uses oil pressure to move camshaft position depending on engine load and demands. VAN0S is always functioning - retarding or advancing the intake and exhaust cams as needed. So when it's not functioning you really feel the difference. The car will be down on power and torque, especially in the mid-range, and your fuel economy will decrease. There may be other telltale signs - camshaft or VAN0S fault codes, misfires and fault codes, and the dreaded "vanos rattle" that signs like marbles in a coffee can but is actually the bearings allowing too much play in the VANOS piston shaft. A new VAN0S unit will do wonders for your car's performance!

Diagnosis and repair depends on what symptoms you have. Trouble codes and faults can usually be traced to a camshaft position sensor or the solenoid not allowing the VANOS to move. But the rattle is a sure sign that the VAN0S is in need of a rebuild. But be aware that a rattling noise could mean other things as well such as the timing chain or tensioner. The typical lifespan of the Original BMW units is 130-150,000 miles. Our rebuilt VAN0S units use better quality bearings, seals, and o-rings, as well as some other tricks, that work better and last longer. How much longer? We don't really know - in over 10 years of selling rebuilt VAN0S units we've never sold a replacement for them!

Our rebuilt and improved dual VANOS units for the M52TU and M54 engines come complete with rebuilt solenoids, all new seals, o-rings, bearings, and the VAN0S cover gasket. It's ready for installation right out of the box. A core charge applies so we can continue to offer rebuilt units at an attractive price (a third of the price of a Genuine BMW unit!). This rebuilt unit is as complete as possible to get back that missing power and smoothness as quickly as possible.

Includes $150 refundable core charge

The S54 engine uses BMW's VANOS variable-valve timing mechanism. There is a filter inside the oil pressure valve that prevents contaminents from lodging in the system. Replacing or cleaning the filter is simple insurance to prevent VANOS failure. And a clean filter allows oil to pass unobstructed, meaning more efficient VANOS operation. This tiny filter slips on the end of the oil pressure valve, located on the side of the VANOS unit. Kit includes part numbers 11361401971, 11311318659, and 11361403325.

If you're not sure if your Vanos seals are bad then the only question you need to answer is if you've replaced them. Every unit from the factory came with the same failure prone o-rings and seals, even the re-manufactured units you can still get today. The only real fix is by replacing the seals and o-rings with material that is built to last in the oiled, extreme temperature environment found in these kits.

A premium product replacement with easy to follow instructions makes rebuilding your Vanos unit a must. Even thought the power loss is barely felt it's the opposite result once you replace the seals, every car that gets rebuilt ends up wowing the customer and all of them saying they didn't realize what they lost.

There are a number of symptoms that will plague your car as a result of these failing seals such as erratic idle, engine hesitation, stalling, and increased fuel consumption to name a few. If you've been chasing down any of these symptoms with no fix then this could be your issue.

While you 're replacing the seals in your Vanos unit it a good time to install anti-rattle spacers to tighten up the gaps in your stock assembly and get rid of that noisy Vanos clatter.

The main reason all of the VANOS units will eventually fail is because the material used for the sealing rings from the factory is not designed for that type of environment. When this happens the only option that BMW leaves you with is buying a new and expensive VANOS unit with the same sealing rings that failed in your original unit.

The VANOS system found in BMW engines is a great feature (when itaEURtms working properly), keeping your power curve smooth and responsive especially in lower to mid RPM range. What usually goes unnoticed is the gradual loss of power within this range as the vehicle's age due to slowly failing seals within the VANOS unit. The way the VANOS system works is based off of oil pressure triggered by a solenoid that allows for a small range of timing degree adjustment, this is where the power curve is affected. When the seals begin to fail (all of them do) there is less pressure to advance the timing reducing the power in that low to mid range. Because this happens slowly it's very hard to notice a difference until you refresh your VANOS unit, then you easily realize the response you've been missing.

There are a number of symptoms that will plague your car as a result of these failing seals such as erratic idle, engine hesitation, stalling, and increased fuel consumption to name a few. If you've been chasing down any of these symptoms with no fix then this could be your issue.

While you're replacing the seals in your VANOS unit it a good time to install anti-rattle spacers to tighten up the gaps in your stock assembly and get rid of that noisy VANOS clatter.

Seals & O-rings:

The seals were the main focus of this project since the OE units are built with Buna-N rubber o-rings instead of the ECS supplied Viton rubber o-rings. The Buna-N material quickly hardens from the heat and chemical exposure within the engine, where the Viton is significantly more resistant to these chemicals. This knowledge was also used when it came to the commonly failed o-rings found on the VANOS seal plate, replaced at the solenoid.

Rattle Repair:

When it comes to the VANOS rattle this is commonly described as "marbles in a can", and can be heard throughout the different RPM ranges depending on the engine. These upgraded rings and washers are precision ground from hardened steel to resist wear and deformation keeping your VANOS rattle free. The rattle repair tools are designed specifically for this VANOS anti-rattle repair, design from hardened steel to stand up to the job. Designed to perfectly follow the splines of the shaft for a tight grip when applying the necessary torque to disassemble & reassemble the VANOS transfer gear. The keyed socket was designed with the intent to use a "common" wrench so this can be completed at home in your garage.

When Servicing your VANOS unit we recommend getting everything you need to replace on the way to service which includes an oil change and valve cover gasket set. Fresh oil and gaskets is the best way to start off a fresh rebuild of any kind giving you the maximum performance of your freshly serviced components.

Don't forget to check out our rebuild PDF to make sure you have everything to get the job done and eliminate the rebuild guess work.

This M6x16 mounting screw is used throughout the BMW model range on a variety of components. Most importantly, this is the latest updated version of the cam sprocket mounting bolt used in the E46 M3 S54 engine (and MZ3 and Z4 M). The original VAN0S-cam gear mounting bolts are known for weakness and a sheared bolt will quickly lead to VAN0S or terminal engine failure. 12 are required for S54 VAN0S bolt replacement (6 per cam sprocket). All other quantities vary based on application.

This is a plastic guide rail for the timing chain on the E46 M3, MZ3 S54, and Z4 M (all S54 cars). We have found that on high mileage engines this plastic piece has worn down, especially at the tip. If allowed to completely wear out it could lead to some very bad engine damage as the timing chain flops about and maybe even jumps teeth on the camshafts or crank gear. When replacing the S54 VANOS unit you should also replace this guide rail which is located close-by. A new crush washer is included.

The VAN0S system on your N51, N52, and N54 engine controls the valve timing inside the engine. The system is hydraulically operated based on instructions from the engine computer. It's very complex and BMW has not yet perfected the system. The VAN0S solenoid is the actuator that takes instruction from the ECU and activates the VAN0S unit on the front of the engine. When the solenoid is failing (or failed) you can end up with a rough running engine, misfires, bad fuel economy, lack of power, and more. It should trigger multiple fault codes and a check engine light for misfires, camshaft control, VAN0S solenoid, boost pressure control, and maybe others. It's important to thoroughly troubleshoot fault codes but VAN0S solenoids are a known issue with these engines.

The VAN0S solenoids are located on the front of the engine and may be replaced without removing many other components. In some cases you may be able to remove the suspect one, clean it, reinstall, and reset your fault codes. If your fault codes come back it's a strong indication that a replacement is required. Or you can buy the new solenoid and replace instead of doing the work twice.

VANOS solenoid for the intake and exhaust are the same part number. Order 2 if you want to replace them both.
