Product Details

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 the camshaft position depending on engine load and demands. VAN0S is always functioning - retarding or advancing the intake cam 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 or replacement. 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.

This is the Genuine BMW rebuilt VANOS unit for the M50, M52, S50US, and S52 engines. It's a factory rebuilt unit with a new solenoid, all new seals, o-rings, and bearings. It's ready for installation right out of the box. A core charge applies so BMW can offer these at a lower cost. A new VANOS cover gasket is recommended as is a new oil supply hose. This will ensure a thorough and fresh VAN0S overhaul.
