I wanted to post up the Peake Codes that I was receiving BEFORE I fixed my VANOS solenoid on the driver's side. Hopefully this may help someone if you are chasing codes similar to these:
46 - Knock Sensor, Cyl #3-4
4A - Intake camshaft VANOS advance valve, Cyl #5-8
71 - Intake camshaft VANOS position control, Cyl #5-8
I also occasionally would get codes D1-D5 indicating misfires during warmup on cylinders 5-8.
After I removed the VANOS solenoids, replaced the gaskets/o-rings and fixed a bad solder joint on one solenoid on the driver's side, I no longer get these codes and don't have the rough idle and random Limp mode issues.
