My Ride: is totaled
total noob question
someone explain to me the deal with vanos seals
is it something a mechanic can look at and tell you the condition of it? do mechanics even look at it during routine stuff?
i know nothing about it ... but keep seeing posts about replacing it so i should probably look into it
my car has almost 160k miles

Yes, you should look at Rajaie's thread.
Ok, I'll try.
Yes, but only if they take it apart first, at which point you need to replace a bunch of things. No, they don't.
Then you should look up that thread at read the explanation.
That's a lot and the seals probably failed long ago.
