I am helping a friend with this one- neither one of us have a garage, so we are attempting to tackle solenoids under a carport. I did exactly what ENINTY stated- used rags to cover the ports and did them in sequence starting with the upper one- minimizes chances of anything accidently dropping in the engine. I have cleaned and switched the solenoids but the vanos-related code and rough idle isn't going away. Perhaps, it is time to get a new set? Do the new ones come with new o-rings?
