  3. This is the oil by-pass valve and should be on the bottom of the canister, since you quote that a breakage has occurred, the entire unit must be replaced.
  4. Ah - here is the answer to my question - yes - it is available for a manual - but unless you have active suspension it might be much cheaper to get the sprint-booster. Suncoast Porsche Parts & Accessories Porsche Sport Mode Software - 997 & 987 WWW.SUNCOASTPARTS.COM
  5. Does Sport button even exist for a manual transmission car? On PDK cars it is - and SPORT is great, SPORT-PLUS is AMAZING. Totally changes the behavior of the car - it not only changes throttle response (which could be done with a "Booster" for a lot less $$$), it changes the shifting of the PDK. "SPORT" setting with my Sprint Booster set to 2 makes for a really responsive lively car, responds with enthusiasm to every input I give it. Tonight I went for a top-down ride (50F, had on earmuffs and the heated seat) and I finally tried SPORT PLUS. I didn't change the settings on the Sprint BOOSTER - still set at "2".. the combination is pretty much magic on a nice twisty road with good pavement, decent sight-lines, and one I know like the back of my hand. The transmission kept the engine between 4K and about 7.2K, which sounds amazing with the top down and a Fister exhaust. It also feels amazing, very responsive, would go wherever I looked without a second thought and kept asking for MORE... when I went past the local LEO station at a bit less than 2x the speed limit, I used the wheel-buttons to upshift to 3rd (it was still in 2nd). It responded instantly, as I slowed to almost legal cruising speed it wanted to go back to 2nd so I had to take it out of PLUS mode and just be happy with SPORT. This could be addicting. It really had me grinning, and it's been a while since a car inspired that in me - it usually takes a motorcycle to do that. So the question is - is there a sport button for manual shift, and if so - what does it change? And if so - is there a sport-plus? Sport Plus and PDK let you do things like launches.. I can't see where that would do anything on a manual transmission car except perhaps speed up the throttle response.
  6. I was changing the oil on my 1999 996 Carerra. I unscrewed the oil filter case, then pulled the oil filter down. When the oil filter came down, I looked at the top of it and noticed the part (I don’t know the name of it) it fits onto came off with the oil filter. I had changed the oil several times and this never happened before. I don’t know how that part is supposed to go back on. I tried pressing it back on and it broke. The oil filter case would not screw back on all the way when I stuck the part in the top of the filter like it was when I pulled the filter down. After it broke, I just put the oil filter and case back on. Now my oil pressure is at 5 anytime I give it gas. I was told the part prevents oil from back flowing into the engine. I can’t fine anything about it on the net or on YouTube. Can anyone identify this part? And how is it supposed to go back on so the oil filter case will screw all the way on? Any help is greatly appreciated. James

  8. Thank you Loren!!!! This worked. I really appreciate you and this forum. Thank you!!
  9. Hello, The coolant T pipe is known to fail at plastic. Some have replaced with brass T. Failed on both my CTT (04). A cable operated hose clamp plier is a must. If replacing, I suggest to also replace starter and coolant vent line as they will wear out, you don't want to keep on taking off intake manifold. Starter can be changed with alum coolant pipes intact. Looks impossible, but it can be done. I wish engineers gave 1mm more clearance. Pelican has good writeup. Advice: keep battery disconnected until fuel line is reconnected. Fuel pump will prime the line when power restored.
  10. Anyone have a guide? Somewhere I did find a list of lubricants Porsche suggests, but I haven't found anything about where to apply them. My top works fine, I'd like to keep it that way.
  11. FYI Rentech, I purchased new bolts about 1/2 inch longer from Fastenal. Grade 8, 7/16 Fine thread, they caught the threads just fine and Bar is now installed. My theory is that i may not hve cut enough plastic out of the side panel. I used the template but. . . Anyway, bar is in and solidly attached to 996 body. I am happy.
  12. It is always helpful if you can tell us the exact model and year of the car.
  13. Hi can anyone tell me what 907 code is please and as I like to repair most things is this fix possible as everything works lights go up when ignition is on but the msg comes up headlight adjustment, l have seen on my scanner unit about near side front height sensor is that easy to do Ron Colbron
  14. Hi guys! New 1999 Boxster owner. I need help with my radio code: Becker CDR-220 type 4462 S/N: Y5052705 24/99 Thanks in advance!!
  15. Loren, Thanks for maintaining this great site.  I was trying to help a guy turn on his OBC using a Durametric Pro.  Unfortunately, I was not able to access the DME.  Do you have a step by step procedure to do so?  I am not a proficient as you with the Porsche Computers.  Its a 2002 Boxster. I think there is a thread he started as well.  JPA described the issues, but not the actual steps. Thanks in advance.  Matt Ken

  17. How about I revive my old thread? Yes, my hardtop is an S version and has the titanium strip in the window gasket. The strip is sun damaged to brown ... anyone know of a replacement for that plastic "chrome" from some other source that would fit and look good?
  18. Hi Dherrick, The green connector you are referring to should be 32pins. From my old notes the there are two MFGs that make that connector, Tyco and AMP. The MFG part number I have is this is for the green cover. The inner part # that would need two to complete the unit. I have found some dealers that might have them in the USA. If not they they look like they are available in Europe you will need to call around. https://octopart.com/1-929409-1-te+connectivity-45284620 1-929409-1 Price & Stock | DigiPart WWW.DIGIPART.COM 1-929409-1 Price, 1-929409-1 Stock, Buy 1-929409-1 from electronic components distributors.

  19. On my 09 S w/ Bi-xenon there’s fuses for each headlight behind the cabin dash side panels. Maybe check there?
  20. Hi, does anyone happen to know the torque spec of those fuel injector nuts and the nut on the input line? I had looked around and didn't seem to find any. Any help is greatly appreciated. BTW, it's a 09 Cayenne S. Thanks.
  21. Resurrecting an old thread. Has anyone found a solution or a supply for the instrument cluster connectors for the 996/986? The part number referenced above is no longer available. The parts guy at a Porsche dealership said that 996s are now considered classic cars so I'm on my own. I believe that the OEM connectors were made by Tyco. My green connector fell apart when I was replacing my instrument cluster after replacing the time adjustment and trip meter shafts. The locking arm broke so I tried using duct tape to seat, however that is apparently not sufficient to establish a good contact, as I get multiple failure warnings when I start the car. Thanks in advance

  23. My first Porsche and first repair. Ordered CD repair manual but will be a week. Lost power steering and found a 1/8th inch by about 1.5 foot long broken round belt under car. Is this the kind of belt that would be on a steering pulley? Can an online vendor to purchase be recommended? TY.
