BLKX3 is on a distinguished road
Well, after staring at the hideous YELLOW Service engine soon light for more than a week, my order from ECS tuning arrived on Friday. So, it was round three with the vanos saga. I was able to remove and replace the vanos unit in about four hours and after clearing the P0014 code the car is back to being "The Ultimate Driving Machine". I guess the lesson learned here is not to wait until 90K mile to rebuild the vanos seals. 60k would have been better. Plus, if you wait as long as I did you might as well replace the whole unit as it is more cost effective than the seals and rebuilding the solenoids and actuators. Hopefully the car will run good for quite a while now....
