  1. I've got a 2006 CTTS and I did the fluid/filter at 50K with Redline D4, I'm at 98K now so I'm gonna do it again at 100K. Shifts great hot or cold. When I did it at 50K I used Durametric to make sure I got it at the correct temperature and then I reset the TCU adaption at the same time.
  2. And as nerdtalker said, the two T's at the back of the engine are a pain to replace but just as likely to crack as were the plastic Coolant pipes. They are tough to replace but either replace them while you're in there with new stock pieces (fairly cheap and come with hoses attached) or install some Stainless T's as the plastic ones will fail again someday.
  3. Old thread but did you get your 8200NEX installed Carina? I just installed one in my '06 CTTS along with the backup camera. I also used the Scosche PE02SR for the install (Most adapter and steering wheel controls) Works great, better sound than OEM head unit through the stock Bose amp and speakers. For the steering wheel controls it only has the volume and the channel change, so 4 of the buttons work. You can wire it up for the Mute but I didn't bother.
  4. On yours is it just back in the right rear cubby hole? If it is should just be a 10mm socket to get 2 nuts off and take the whole bracket out or tilt it down enough. There should be a power connector and a MOST connector to it.
  5. I just installed a Pioneer Avic 8200NEX in my '06CTTS. I got the B+ (constant power from the original harness), I got switched ACC power from the right side dash fuse box. I've found that the Cayenne fuse locations in the manual can be quite different depending on your options. It helps if you list your year and model of Cayenne which may narrow down the fuses and/or harness. I know there is a big difference in the head unit wiring between the PCM and the CDR23 so the wires behind the headunit will not be different. With the Pioneer, I get the reverse signal (backup camera) and gala speed signal from the High/Low can bus signals that went into the PCM. I used a Scosche adapter but it still needed a bit of wire tapping in. I also have the volume and channel change capability from the steering wheel controls.
  6. Has the transmission been serviced recently? As Loren said, could be wrong fluid, could also be the fluid level is too low. How many Kilometers on it? Possibly the valve body. A specialist should be able to troubleshoot the Torque converter and if it's locking up properly or intermittent.
  7. I changed mine last year after 30,000Km with about 130000km on the car and they looked cleaner that those. I do use the OEM Beru plugs.
  8. Call me anal but when I get home from a drive and park in the garage I almost always open the hood to let the engine cool better. With the hood closed things really bake in the engine compartment after coming to a stop. I do it on all of my cars.
  9. Try these guys, they ship around the world. https://www.kufatec.com/
  10. Keep it for at least another year to get some money out of your time and repairs. Also good to see after a year if the next Gen Cayenne has any problems although sometimes we know they don't show up for a couple of years.
  11. Codes cleared, you did a highspeed run down the A3 or A5 and all is well?????
  12. I've been to just below the headlights before and very slow. Definitely wouldn't recommend going any higher. My low tone horn failed soon thereafter but the high tone still works fine, that was about 2yrs ago.
  13. Congratulations on finally fixing that problem. A lot of work but you've fixed a lot of weak points which will contribute to long term reliability. I can't remember, do you have stock air filters? A more open filter can let some of the intake and/or Turbo whistling noise through.
  14. I may have been mistaken quoting the diagram number Lewis. Are you saying that Porsche has chosen to only to only sense off of one Turbo? On my Audi with ME7.1.1 both wastegate hoses go to a tee then onto the N75 and both Turbos have a sense line that tee's then goes onto the N75.
