  3. Thanks Don! I believe the vacuum control you show could possibly be the issue. I can't however find anywhere any vacuum specs to test it with a Mighty-Vac. If anyone can find something, I'm all ears... I may also call Porsche and see if they can provide something. I also may pull the intake and stick an endoscope down each runner to see these valves look like...maybe one somehow got bent or is obstructed...long shot, but curious now just to see inside, lol. BTW - Search this video on youtube for a good simple explanation of the function of these valves...."Variable Intake Manifolds & Intake Tuning"

  5. From what I have been told Stop Start technology is amazingly advanced. The bits I remember: To start the car ONLY the optimal cylinder (s) are fed with fuel and ignighted. This turns the engine over, being up to temperature it starts with fuel being fed into the remaining cylinders as normal. Reducing the need for the starter motor and load on the battery.
  6. Just replaced mine this past weekend. Took 7 hours start to finish. I have an 03 996.2. I found loosening the AOS first was easier before trying to get to the last manifold bolt. Assembly didnt go as well because some bolts weren't lining up. But I got it done. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  7. Lits cost what they do because Porsche owns the rights to the design, anyone trying to copy them would get burned in court, hence only the crappy systems which do not impinge on Porsche's design.

    Hey i'm looking for a radio code. MODEL No: BE 6625 SERIAL No: 25011297 Thanks
  10. Marcio, with respect, that is not the way to go about it. I would strongly suggest that you search YouTube for a video tutorial on draining a Cayenne cooling system and follow that. Whilst I'm not familiar with PEAK products, I believe that their pre-diluted (50:50) 'Global Lifetime' coolant would be OK. It would, however, be advisable to confirm that.
  11. Thank you all.... In fact there was a misture in the radiator.... from now I will replace 100% of the liquid (22 liters) from mix to coolant (green or pink Peak - https://www.peakhd.com/product/peak/automotive-antifreeze/ ) And observe with attention the variation of temp in the car in different conditions. When it reaches more than 95° celsius I will stop and investigate more. I dont have vaccun equipment in the city I live so I will add new coolant in the tank and when the car heats and pump acts I get the return hose (number😎 out till purge all old water in the system. When new coolant starts to leave the return hose I stops the car and reconnect in the tank. Latter I tell you the results... Very glad! Hugs
  12. 2006 997.1 S I'm installing an AIM Data logger and want to add some additional Oil Pressure Sensors for monitoring. I've been told that the OE location is in the upper right corner of the 456 Bank and that there is a tapped and plugged location on the lower right corner of the 123 bank. I figured that would work fir one and I was hoping to add an additional one somewhere that would give me a reading closer to the sump. The goal is to differentiate between G Force effected readings and if I'm running the sump dry. Any suggestions? Thanks, Mark
  13. @Marcio Nascimento, I don't like to put normal water even though it's demineralised due to the fact that the boiling point of water is much lower than the coolant one. This said, I believe that you have to add water on a routine, since the high temperatures will make it to boiling point and by doing so, transforms water into condensation and so forward it creates pressure inside the cooling system. I don't advise it, since it may be the main purpose for your reservoir to crack due to the increasing pressure inside it. (Compare it to a boiling stove) I have a 955 S, and mine even on traffic jam doesn't go over 85-90 degrees Celsius, so that may be one of the reasons why you are running it on water makes it to boil further. Notice that I am not aware of your country or climatic conditions. I live in Portugal, and during the summer, we have 30 so degrees Celsius. If the engine heats relatively fast, would say, water reaching 80© in 5-8 minutes would be normal, the oil takes around 12-15 minutes on my car, driving it normally. I completely agree with @wizard, don't mix water or rest of coolant you might have with some good coolant. It will destroy its properties and probably another tank. Even though I only use coolant, the pressure inside the tank is already too high! @TCokerjr68, I know.for me 110 © is too high, the material wears out faster. Me neither! When reaches 90©, I already wonder what might be wrong.
  14. Yes, some times hits 100-110 in certain conditions? traffic jams in hot days (35°) Maybe something is wrong in the car and this is why tank damaged two times But everything seems work... Mystery machine!!! Better investigate 😞
  15. 110 sounds high?? Never seen mine above 90
  16. Just to add to what Dennes33 has advised, you should completely drain and flush your cooling system prior to finally putting in coolant/distilled water. A mixture of the residual additive that you earlier put in and coolant could have unwelcome consequences.
  17. Hi Everyone, Time to get back into a Porsche. Heart says 997.2 C4S head is saying Panamera hybrid. Could someone please explain the easy points to look for in an advert / photos spot the facelift 970.2? My budget puts me in the bracket of a higher mileage facelift or the original model. Any help and advice please, before my heart wins TIA

  21. I agree - That's why I said "Litronic/HID replacement" for our lights ( I have Litronics, so no "conversion kits" for me... I would think given today's manufacturing capabilities, a comparable Litronic replacement could be produced for far less than $2k apiece (or whatever ridiculous price Porsche charges for them) while still including a tidy profit margin.
  22. A quick intro before the info on the window. October 12, Friday I loaded up my trailer and headed to the panhandle to provide hurricane relief in Panama Florida with a group out of Tampa called Compassion Kind who needed a trailer to haul all of their goods to the panama. While in Panama City Beach my vehicle locked itself with the keys inside and the vehicle running. After realizing it was not feasible to get a police officer to lend a Slim Jim or have him open the vehicle since they were doing search and rescue for survivors and also no pop a lock people were available I decided to break what I thought was the cheapest window on the vehicle the rear right quarter window (last window on the right side of the vehicle). After 10 smacks of a hammer in the middle of the window someone suggested hitting it in the lower corner, after doing so it finally shattered. We were able to unlock the vehicle by opening a back door at that point. So I taped it up with a piece of cardboard and duck tape and drove home. October 16, The following Tuesday I contacted my local Porsche dealer only to find out that the part was $650 and would have to be shipped from Germany since they did not have it locally. I think called a few junk yards and found one here in Tampa (Partsmart) that had the part second hand and would sell it for $75. I bought it and proceeded to remove and replace the old window. At first I thought it was just going to be the glass but as it turns out the c pillar accent is part of it and it is also connected to the trim that goes around the top of all the windows. In order to remove the glass you have to loosen the inside panels all the way around. You have to completely remove the panels that are above the lower portion of the window. When removing these panels you have to be careful because some of them use clips and others use screws (a combination of torx and metric bolts).
  23. Deenses , Thank you very much to send the squema above... I am going to install the new tank and make a double checking in the tubes (some weeks seemed well). As good coolants are very expensive I am going to put demineralized water, go working with the car for some weeks and observe temp and leaks. If everything OK, I replace to coolant. What do you think? any risk to tank damage again? Normally the temp reaches 110 ceusius into the jam and in a road around 95... Doses it seem ok? Puley, pump, fans, termostat,... seems to work OK. But I cannot ensure 100%. I prefer think in a material trouble in the tanks. If there is any other issue I cannot see. That will be difficult to me. 😞 Marcio
  24. Well, I found the 'glitter' in the IMS shaft (stuck to a magnet) then out of curiosity I ran the magnet through the drained engine oil and didn't get anything seemed strange to me....nothing in the filter either. Well I'm going to cross my fingers and proceed. Installing an RMS and I've read both to install completely dry or use Curil T on the outside diameter....which is it? Thanks V
  25. Either your car inst isolating the heat from the engine properly, which I find weird, or the coolant that you are using doesn't have the appropriate chemicals, and destroys the blending of the two parts tank while under pressure and heat. If you want to use a good coolant, that you use straight there, because is already blended with water, you may use motul inugel optimal (orange) or glysatin G40 (Pink). Other thing you should check is the tubes, 3, 8, 13, for breaks, compression against other parts that doesn't allow it to pass the fluid with the appropriate flow, or twists. If you have a photo, show me, so I can try to help you! No fumes or funny smell from the exhaust?
  26. Some people said this component already blowed up So this is my suspecting over some material problem. But don't know if others components could cause this kind of incident too.
