  2. Thanks for coming back and sharing what fixed it. Good luck with the next issues.
  3. Today
  4. Vibration at 3000 RPM decelerating

    Engine vibration, off throttle especially, is a sign of the front motor mount failing, not a catastrophe impending. The front motor mount accommodates a lot of vibration in a vertical direction by large holes in the rubber above and below the central through bolt. When this space is taken up by the rubber losing its strength and the engine weight pushing the center bolt (and tube it goes through) against the thin rubber on the bottom of the motor mount (off throttle torque on the engine/transaxle adds to this force) you feel the characteristic vibration at 3100 rpm. Solid motor mounts do this and stuffing the holes in stock motor mounts with anything (in hopes of reducing movement of the engine and it's effect on shifting) may also lead to feeling this vibration.
  5. I've had the battery disconnected many times and didn't need any code for the radio 2006 ctt. I wouldn't stress about it!
  6. display in metric ?

    On the button to the right of the speedometer (clock on it). With the ignition on, hold the button turned to the left for about 5 seconds. Done.
  7. Why not use the cigarette lighter socket and apply a 12v supply before changing the battery? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  8. display in metric ?

  9. From the Lost Radio Code FAQ... "Can you give me a code for my PCM?These units are manufactured jointly by Siemens and Becker, and the only place where you can get the codes required is from the dealer/OPC. The PCM’s require two codes, the ICS/Siemens code and a Becker code. The ICS is the first code requested.Sorry, the only place you can get a PCM code is from a dealer/OPC."
  10. Hello, Does anyone know how to find the radio security code other than removing the actual multimedia console? I found this website here but not sure if it really works. My concern is when I change the battery (which is dying) how to gain access to the multimedia center again should it require a security code. I am the third owner and have found nothing written in any of the vehicle documents. Any advice would be appreciated.
  11. Yesterday
  12. Fixed. Bad ballast. Finally got this car registered and am driving it. For a $6700 Porsche (plus $6k in new parts) this thing is awesome fun. Next issues are a/c, convertible top and a few dents.
  13. Last week
  14. Man you have to change D2S xenon bulb (low beam). High beam is regular bulb +D2S xenon. Low beam only xenon bulb is on. Thrre is a flap in xenon projector light that switch low and high beam. But when high beam is running also regular bulb is supporting. Low - D2S High - D2S + H11 or so

    Hi, I appreciate any help with this. I too just replaced my battery and never got the original info with my purchase. Thanks. Model: CR-210 Type: R1996 Serial: T5000706 Cheers!
  21. If the seals for the crankcase are leaking would I see oil leaks? This engine uses almost no oil, about one quart per 6000 miles.
  22. Can't remember ever going into the door Electrica module.
  23. Labor rates vary with geography, so you will have to check them locally. Figure on 4-6 hours, plus parts. A full clutch kit (disc, pressure plate, throw out bearing) should retail in the $400-500, assuming your dual mass flywheel is still good. If it isn't, add $1K. You should update the RMS while doing this, and it is also a great opportunity to retrofit the IMS while it is apart.
  24. I installed the GT3 ducts in my 06 C2S. They are similar in size but a different shape that channels the air more directly. My car didn't have ducts in the rear so I installed the GT3 ducts there as well. The GT2 Ducts are designed to channel even more airflow but they are expensive and require modification to work. GT3 Front Ducts: https://www.suncoastparts.com/product/PKGT3FRS.html Rear Ducts: https://www.suncoastparts.com/product/PK997RBDS.html GT2 Ducts: https://www.suncoastparts.com/product/99634111790AND99634111890.html
  25. It's hard to see, but the scale is on the bottom left, 10.0V per major division - CH1 / 5.2V is just the trigger voltage for the scope (the small arrow). I still don't like digital oscilloscopes… Interesting link - I wondered about this about the N75 as well, thanks. Hah! True enough. So I did clean it and made sure everything was tight and lines were in their proper place with no stress on them, and the errors have gone away for several hours of driving now. Even the Readiness is back to normal. There is still a much fainter (but still present) smell of oil every now and then, so I'm thinking I just improved things enough not to trigger a code, but there is still some leak problem. So I might go ahead and get the valve and see if that helps things. The only other candidates I have left is the AOS diaphragm not functioning correctly, but I have already broke two of the tabs on the cover and I've tried but can't get it off without stressing the remaining tabs so much I am sure they are going to break. A heat gun would help, but I don't want to melt the membrane and then have to wait for another one from Russia. But if you miss working endlessly on your Cayenne, I also have to take the passenger door apart again because the replacement window cables ate themselves and now it needs to be fixed again. And I just realized that my drivers door open/closed micro switch sensor needs fixing. I never cared that the light didn't come on when I opened the door, but now I am realizing that the key weirdness's I've always had could be due to it thinking the driver's door hasn't been opened. Plus there is the fuel pump that doesn't turn on when I open it and slow starting…its all so connected. Speaking of which did your VAGCOM ever access the door electrics controller? I can't make a CAN connection to it for some reason. Was that a controller you had access to?
  26. Good. I think it's not related to the MAF sensor then. It would be nice if the shop can perform a smoke test to check for intake air leak and crankcase air leak. Sticky lifter(s) are entirely possible but so are sticky injector(s).
  27. Drove with the MAF unplugged all the way home ~45 minutes. No noticeable difference in idle after the drive. The comment from Porschetech3 on the crankcase vacuum being too low has me wondering about the seals you mentioned or anything else that would cause reduced vacuum in the crankcase. Other than the seals you mentioned, should I check anything else when I have it on the lift for the oil change? Also, my independent Porsche shop expressed a concern about lifters sticking causing this issue. Any thoughts on that?
  28. I have a 2003 996 cab with 114k miles. The clutch has begun to slip if I drive with any gusto. I can granny it around without slippage. Am I looking at a clutch replacement? If so, any estimates on total cost? I can turn a wrench but no way do I have the time or skill to tackle something of this magnitude. Any advice greatly appreciated. Thank you.
