    Will a bad intake vanos solenoid affect my low rpm power and torque?

    Car went into limp mode and threw a 2a7a code for intake vanos solenoid (never seen this before), my car in low gears doesn't feel as torquey as it used to? Will a bad intake vanos solenoid affect my low rpm power and torque?

    Yes it will. Change the solenoid, cheap and easy to do. If the problem persists it may be the cam ledger ...wich is bad, m'kay.

    yeah probably makes it default to zero degrees, which hurts everything.

    You can also try to clean your solenoid with proper solvent & compressed air.

    I've cleaned mine with utrasonic washer. But more effective way was to dip the head of the solenoid in the very thin pneumatic oil and operate it (on/off/on/off...) with 12V power source. You can hear when the solenoid is starting to react significantly faster. Even after the utrasonic washer, there were loads of crap at the bottom of the oil bucket.

    Anyway, new is always new.
