  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. Be 4462 y5048317 24/99 can someone help this is a cdr 220
  9. 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
  10. Yesterday
  11. 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
  12. 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?
  13. We have a secondary cabin filter in the trunk? Subscribed to this thread for the education...
  14. 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..
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. I have just bought a second hand Cayenne 2005 S. The steering wheel controls do not work at all, no lights or tiptronic and when I start up I get an airbag warning. I have checked all fuses in the drivers side and the passengers side - all are working that are in place (not sure if one is missing). Does anyone have any idea what to check or access to a diagram so I can start tracing the fault to see where to look. Thanks
  18. So I fire this thing up and get a massage saying take it to the dealer, so I buy a newer scanner and I have a C1 27 code.....Communication front control unit Now I cant find any other info on what this is, car runs fine and all systems are working, any clues guys
  19. According to the build sheet for my Cayenne it was fitted with a factory reversing camera, cut a long story short it doesn't work and I cannot see any evidence that its trying to work. Where are these factory fitted cameras located? The only place I can see it might be is under a flap just below the tailgate glass hatch lifting mechanism, am I right? I've never seen one of these camera's on all the Cayennes I've looked at, I assume it should show the image on the PCM screen but as I've said absolutely nothing is seen there.
  20. Bumping an old thread! Where is the headlight level control unit located? I'm having issues with my litronic headlights stuck in the most dipped down position and need to locate this to troubleshoot the wiring. Lights attempt to flick up during key on headlight switch on. Motors can be heard moving but beam level of headlight doesn't change. I get all the faults through Durametric for 1:Engine path left 2:Engine path right 3:Axle-position sensor front 4:Axle-position sensor rear Here is the picture of the headlight level control unit in question. Does anyone know where this is found? Please Help!
