BMW Vanos Repair
1994 BMW 325iC E36 Vanos went bad and these are the steps I took towards repairing it.
This Vanos started to make that noise around 134k miles or so. The kit from Dr. Vanos was relatively easy to install, you need to be patient and not rush it. When I took the old Vanos out I noticed the plunger which pushes the splined cup forward was loose. Two timing chains on E36 engines not timing belts. I still can hear one of the chains when I shift and let the revvs drop I think it is the top chain because I replaced the bottom tensioner already. One note about changing the Vanos yourself, make sure that there is a good seal between the vanos and the timing chain cover on the engine or it will leak alot.
