    VANOS system on by BMW.

    Hello! I suspect the VANOS system on by BMW is not working. Tell me how to determine the fault and what to do?

    Samuel, I don't think there are any BMW bikes with variable valve timing.... yet. Are you sure you are in the right place?

    I had the Vanos system (specifically the cam position sensor) on my 98 328i fail. The car was very clear in letting me know that it had failed and that I was in a limp home mode.

    Hello! Thanks for the tips! I found a great website with repair kits. I solved the problem cheaply and quickly. There were no problems with the delivery.
