Hey All,

What do you know about VANOS - My car seems to be making a funny noise exactly where the vanos is ... i'm thinking it is chain guide or something.

Has anyone on the board experienced issue in this department and if so what was it and how $$$ is it going to hurt?

Thanks for all your responses in advance ...

please recommend a shop to get the work done thx!

I'd suggest checking the same thing also, they're known to go.
