545i: , your specialist Roger had a vanos problem

Customer Question

Hello, your specialist Roger had a vanos
problem with bmw that he solved.We
have a customers car Bmw 545i 2004
N62 that give faults 27BB, 27BC, 2731
2732. We have changed the vanos
wheels and the chains. We think that the
problem came after the repair but
everything have been checked and the
timing and the oil pressure are ok.
Also the vanos magnetic solenoids are
ok and the seals too. The fault is only
accuring while idle speed, when you
raise the speed of the engine and empty
the fault codes, they stay away until you
lower to idle again. Please help us if you
can, Thanks!!

Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative. do you have the e62 timing lock down kit to set up the chain correctly? please do let me know
