If you own one of the vehicles listed below, the o-rings and seals in the vanos unit of your BMW vehicle wear out after a certain period of time and the vanos unit does not work properly anymore. The VANOS unit by BMW stands for Variable Camshaft Timing and is responsible for the variable timing of the camshaft in relation to rpm, torque and engine oil temperature. 

The original seals installed in the vanos unit are not suitable for the use in the engine and this causes the sealing rings to not seal properly anymore and the vanos unit to fail. 

BMW does not offer these seals separately, but only the complete replacement of the vanos unit. But even in this exchange unit, the installed seals are again of inferior quality that wear out after a short service life of the engine. 


Symptoms can occur after a certain time: 

- loss of torque and power especially in the lower and middle RPM range
- uneven power and rpm distribution
- louder and uneven idle
- difficult takeoffs
- increased fuel consumption 


S54 Vanos Info

The E46 M3, the Z3 M Coupe/Roadster and the E85/86 MZ4 Coupe/Roadster all came equipped with the s54b32 engine (commonly referred to as the S54) which was a much more complex engine than the earlier US Spec M3 had. 

The vanos unit on the S54 also evolved into a more complex unit and has it's own set of inherent problems that many S54 owners will run into eventually. 

The S54 Vanos controls both the intake and exhaust camshafts to improve performance, torque, idle characteristics and emissions.

A high pressure (1200psi) control system is used to ensure responsive and accurate camshaft adjustments required by the high performance M engine. 

The added complexity and high oil pressure used on the S54 vanos means there are more opportunities for failures and related problems.
