Results of vanos test

https://db.tt/nBWuNosO
Actually an incomplete test. Well my timing should be good. Have not messed with it. Vanos hydraulic unit should be the solenoid pack not actuating the valves properly. That unit has been cleaned and o rings replaced via besian.
My problem has to be the solenoid.
Its nice being able to do a vanos trst whenever I want. Great software

So it's exactly what we told you a hundred times in one if your other hundred threads. How about you update one of those threads rather than keep posting new threads.

You have so many threads on this I don't even remember what's going on.

Anyway, if it's still throwing VANOS codes then you need to check your hub tabs. You might as well check the timing, too.

Oh, and I didnt think the timing would be off because I havent disturbed it. I read somewhere that timing can only be off if mechanically disturbed

Also noticed that when I took everything apart, the valves in the block were not clicking when I put a magnet on them. I had just cleaned everything 1000 miles ago. So I cleaned them again. Weird they were that dirty already
