That the timing chain guides start failing on a M62tu around 160,000 miles. Mine went out at 159,909. Check it.







So if you have a "TU" engine around 160,000 miles and theres a bad rattle and its throwing VANOS codes, your guides are gone.

Good luck

Thats just a bullshit excuse on their part so when they do go bad you cant blame them and they can rape you on the repair.

Non-vanos M60's and M62's dont have this problem. At least not in mass quantities like the TU's.
