Concur with the above - engine flush + cheap oil until it starts looking clean again. I haven't used seafoam or Auto RX so I can't comment.

As for the VANOS, I'm tackling this early next year, time permitting. I would say that you should leave the OFHG for another time. Focus on getting this DIY right first without adding to potential complications.

If you were any closer I'd come in and give you a hand (more so to get a first hand sticky beak for myself! )

Good luck and keep us posted

I can help with
* Reading Codes / Coding your car
* R&R FCAs, Tie Rods, Sway links....

Need an RTAB tool? Or clutch fan and water pump tools? PM me.
