I forget which code came up but the vanos solenoids will throw specific codes when they are sticking or malfunctioning. I had mine replaced under CPO and I remember the code I pulled said the solenoid on the intake side was sticking. Looking through my bentley manual, I noticed there were also codes for a faulty solenoid.

Btw, I'm not sure if you're aware but cleaning the solenoids is just blowing shop air threw them.
