Hi to Canada! Nice to hear that you solved this oil smell problem and the car is running good. Major task ! With this news you push me to overlook my valve and all connections again :-)
Thank you Lewis. The Hitachi is fitting without correction of the water cooling lines?
@Lewis how long did it take for you to replace? i remember you was very disappointed
thank you Lewis
ekstroemtj posted a topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)ALTERNATOR QUESTION. Sorry has nothing to do with the title of this thread but I didn’t want to open new one. i had my alternator replaced 2 years ago. Overhauled part. Is working flawless but makes noises from the very first day. The mechanic maybe should hear it before replacement but he didn’t. Now he is in and because it’s a pita to replace we didn’t change. Just the noise is a bit annoying. Is there a chance to replace the bearing without taking the alternator out of the car? Thank you
The ones you mention are between 25 and 40 EUR. They look similar but they don’t work well. That’s what I was told from 2 different suppliers.
I wouldn’t be scared about the China story. I am just now using a IPhone to write you which is mainly from.... and it’s not falling apart.
I wouldn’t play around with this part. Turbo non Turbo. Looks similar but ... make this step and buy the right part and have freedom
If you can hear the valve it’s already a fault. The ticktick of the purge valve is a clear sign something is wrong. IMO this is showing the valve is open/close/open/close
@Zakowsky... Mikel, i hadn’t have the smell lately. But can’t tell you why . Like i wrote in my original post, i believe it’s not burned oil. It tastes like fumes from the PCV / crankcase ventilation. I believe you are on the right way. What Lewis mention, please go to check the wiring to the purge valve. Mine was cake too. In the end I can’t even say if the wiring was the problem or the purge valve. I changed both.
ekstroemtj replied to Diegosnotrod1's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Mine i bought from a vendor in eBay. But it was some time ago. Maybe you could even find a used unit or you change to the new high tech units with touchscreen etc.
ekstroemtj replied to Diegosnotrod1's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Hi .actually mine was the same. Needs a new display. Nothing to do with software
Hello and greetings to Westerwald. Thank you for your note. Maybe you are right but the air suspension workshop failure I got already last week when I still used summer wheels. In my case I believe it’s related to outside temp / maybe battery power.
@Zakowsky hello to Canada regarding your codes I can say, the lower temperature always brings air suspension workshop messages to my display too. Don’t know why. Usually they disappear after new start. Maybe again a low voltage problem. Don’t know. As you remember i had problems with the EVAP valve too. The part isn’t that expensive. Lewis would say change it and forget about the problems.
Yes this ones are from behind. What means „toeing“? thank you Lewis
