Hook up a code reader and look for shown errors.

And not working at all would give so many indications that you'd be at the garage already. Seals and system itself need replacement every now and then, you'll know the seals are in for replacement if you have less power in the lower range and your fuel consumption has gone up.

Anyway it you are not a car mechanic yourself and you suspect the valve timing to be of better drive to a garage to avoid higher costs, and around 100.000km it needs replacement anyway.

Hello! Thanks for the tips! I found a great website with repair kits. I solved the problem cheaply and quickly. There were no problems with the delivery.
