VANOS actual vs. expected positions
Yes, the DME actually controls (orders) the VANOS units, so I believe "expected" actually means "ordered."
The only reason I can think that the VANOS can't achieve what was ordered is if a solenoid is not operating properly (ISTA tells me I have 3 drawing high current) or if a VANOS adjustment unit is not moving freely forward and aft.
Hopefully, someone more knowledgeable about vanos (like gjs) will chime in and offer their thoughts.
