    How the vanos solenoid works on the M62tu 3.5 V8

    Fantastic !!!! you beauty "Check Valve" that's the bitch that's been my nemesis for nearly a year, that's the check valve fwd of the solenoid. Thats why theres a clatter on start up that that reduces to silent perfection as the oil pressure build, sometimes it's there sometimes not, ??? what i do know and has been my gut feeling all along is that it is not the vanos and if the so called experts had their way 2k of my hard earned cash would be in their bank not mine. cheers mate
  9. Can anyone tell me exactly how the vanos solenoids work on the V8,, symptoms, failures and fixes? Any information would be greatly appreciated!

    Good Weekend and a Happy E30

    Bargains! They don't come along that often and I don't usually get lucky but i was in Machine Mart on Friday and picked up a garage that's right a whole garage! for £150 So Saturday got even busier and after a late start the E30 had a new home by 6 o'clock, it's not a bad bit of kit and sturdy but allow 5 hrs to erect properly.
