  2. Hello, I am really worried, I noticed a coolant leak on the driver rear side of the car. The leak is on the back. Starts leaking after the engine gets hot and it seems that stops after a while because I don’t lose that much coolant. I check the coolant and add a little bit before driving it. No overheating. at first I thought it was a hose coming out of what now I think is the AOS. But now I think is the AOS itself that might have a tiny crack. Is that possible? Coolant from the oil separator and not oil leak? How serious is this? Any help really appreciated. As much as I wish I could do mechanical work, I think this is out of my league. Thanks!
  3. Hi, Left headlight was too low according to vehicle inspection on my 996 -02 (facelift). Nothing really happened when I tried to adjust it according to user manual. So I removed the headlight and it turns out that I can lower the beam but when I raise it I can feel that it gets to a point where it doesn't raise the beam any more; the adjustment teeth aren't gripping. What might be the problem? Thanks!
  4. Appears it was incorrectly listed 😞 but I do want to clean the foam inside the grille which requires removal anyway. Any thoughts?
  5. Thank you! I really appreciate your help! I think I have the issue resolved. Now I have another issue. Coolant leaking from what I think is the AOS, I think for this one I may have to take it to the dealer. I just add a little bit of coolant every day. No oil leak just coolant. Is it ok to drive it for few days adding coolant daily and watching the temperature of the engine to remain low? Thank you!
  6. Today
  7. Update. The PCM was changed before my ownership for a second hand one, does it need coding for the reverse camera to work?
  8. Dump the fuel and all vital fluids and start over. Probably will need a battery as well, and I would check the tires for signs of aging.
  9. The TRA should vary a bit when you rev the engine. The FRA is more long term adjustment when engine is under load so just revving the engine a bit won't make FRA move. You have to drive the car but even then you may only see small changes day to day. Yes, the small actuator pads. When you retime it, make sure the chain marked links are at the correct places on the cam sprockets.
  10. Ok...retime bank1.Are the trims supposed to move when the engine is revved...nothing changed.What cam pads are you referring to? The 2 small pads on the actuator? They were done already. Thanks for getting back.v
  11. I received a call from Jake and he said they started assembly work on the motor this week. Right on schedule with the dates he gave me back in August. Pictures coming soon.
  12. Excellent. Bank 1 cam deviation is way out of spec, which is 0.0 +/- 6.0 degrees and you have -15 degrees. I believe that's the source of your bank 1 random misfires. The solution is to re-time bank 1 and replace the cam pads if they are original/worn out. Both banks are running RICH under load based on the FRA readings. FRA in bank 1 is a bit low at 0.87, which means the DME is reducing the fuel by 13%. Bank 2 fuel is reduced by 7%, not too bad. The bank 1 FRA could be a consequence of the excessive cam deviation. TRA1 and TRA2 numbers are in % and they look great. So it seems no intake air leak. For monitoring misfires, go to DME actual values and select "Misfire cylinder #1", "Misfire cylinder #2", etc.
  13. Hi all, Well got my Durametric on today...Seems that I have -15 degrees deviation on Bank 1.Bank 2 reads 0 deviation. I think my fuel trims look ok (just a guess,didn't find an option for RKAT) somehow they didn't move at all when at 2500 rpm's. I activated both Actuators and heard a engine note change so I believe they're both working.I disabled my injectors one at a time and noticed there was more of a change in engine note with 4-5 and 6,not much change when 1-2 and 3 were disabled. How do I monitor misfires in real time?? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks V
  14. Be 4462 y5048317 24/99 can someone help this is a cdr 220
  15. I need recommendations for a 6 year old 996 carrera 2 parked on the garage without starting the engine. What things I meed to do? Thanks in advance, Jose
  16. Yesterday
  17. Yes I think I should remove cover it sounds like lifters to me .I will have to park it for a bit no time are good place to do it .Thanks again for your help Ahsai
  18. My rose guide is missing so I have ordered a new one. Since I don’t have one I can not tell in what order it is assembled in regards to the emergency pull line little circle loop thing that goes to the actuator stick. So is this order correct: 1. Attach rose guide 2. Place door actuator “stick” through the emergency pull ring and then through the rose guide So the little ring is actually behind the rose guide?
  19. We have a secondary cabin filter in the trunk? Subscribed to this thread for the education...
  20. Anybody have the instructions on changing the cabin filter in the trunk? It’s not clear to me how the carpeted side panel removes, and I fear breaking clips etc..
  21. Ok so I have looked at all the forums and can't find one that is relevant to my problem. I had a rear right window regulator break. The window was stuck 4 inches open. Then I started getting alarm problems where it wouldn't lock the car and activate. Then it progressed to the alarm horn going off when I started the car with no indicators flashing then the trunk lid and window won't open. The batt is good. The key batts are good. I'm wondering if the alarm module needs replacing or the rear right door is it. Any help is much appreciated.
  22. good day to a all I have a problem with my 3.2 2005 cayenne s the other day it was showing a generator/battery fault on the way home the engine just cut out and I coasted to a stop the AA came out and tried to jump start the car with no effect having got the car home I have changed the battery and the generator but the car will not start (no clicking of starter) upon closer inspection on the dashboard the transmission was showing as in drive but the leaver is in park so the car thinks it is in gear I read the fault code and the code P0864 TCM communication error I can clear the code but as soon as the ignition is turned off then back on the code is there and it shows as it is in drive does any one know if you can manually rest the tcm many thanks nicholas
