Asked by Nov 03, 2013 at 07:48 AM about the 1999 BMW 5 Series 528i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

car has poor power from 0 to 40 mph. high speeds are normal.  I don't believe I have the vanos timing correct. if the timing is off that much should the car still start?  car does not
start on first revolution, it starts after three. I may have it close but not correct. any web sites that show this timing procedure step by step?
