VANOS Repairs

VANOS Repairs | Import Motor Werks

When BMW vehicle owners living or working in or near Cary or Raleigh NC require VANOS service or repair, they turn to Import Motor Werks’ auto mechanics, who have advanced training, correct factory tooling, and necessary expertise. VANOS is BMW’s complicated variable camshaft timing unit. By adjusting the camshaft for the intake and exhaust valves and oil flow to the camshaft gears, VANOS enables smoother engine idling and operation, more torque, and a wider powerband. Be aware that some BMW models have a single VANOS system, while others a dual VANOS setup.

When the VANOS solenoid valves become dirty, clogged, begin to operate improperly or fail, BMW vehicle horsepower, torque, performance, fuel economy, and overall drivability suffer. When that occurs, a VANOS repair or auto repair is necessary, which could range from a minor repair to a complete VANOS rebuild and replacement of the valve cover gasket, upper timing cover gasket, Beisan Systems VANOS kits (think seals and rattle solution), and more.

Import Motor Werks specializes in European vehicles. Our team of ASE-Certified auto mechanics utilizes specialty tools & equipment to provide high-quality VANOS service and repair. In addition, each year, the team enrolls in training to keep pace with new advanced technology and evolving service procedures. Confident in its VANOS repair expertise, Import Motor Werks backs its service with a 3-year/36,000-mile non-transferable warranty. In addition, we have free loaner vehicles (subject to availability) should you need alternate transportation.

"Sean did an amazing job installing new high-performance turbos in my 335i.  His attention to detail was much appreciated.  Michael kept me in the loop throughout this extensive  project and I couldn’t be happier with their service.  They have a gorgeous waiting room with snacks, drinks, TV, WiFi, and comfortable couches.” -- Scott D.
