hey everyone, id like to start out by saying hello im new to this forum, this topic has probably popped up a bit but none quite like mine....on to the issue.. 97 528i code p1519 is on. I just bought the car and have no info on it so I have no idea if the head gasket has been replaced in it or not. the car seems to run and idle fine just the pesky light is on. I haven't really got into too much yet but I did test the vanos solenoid and it seemed to test okay ( put 12v to it the pin popped out) and that's really about it. I don't really want to throw money at parts not knowing what it is but even if the pin pops out could the solenoid still be bad? and the vanos itself is not making any noise and its not leaking any oil so I would assume the seals are ok? im not really sure where else to go so if anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it!!
