    I am guessing you need a new passenger door latch mechanism. One of the many microswitches built into the door latch mechanism is faulty. I had some trouble with my drivers side door latch mechanism (not unlocking, not opening, repeatedly had to lock/unlock, window not dropping). I replaced the entire door latch mechanism and now everything works perfectly.

    Then set your speed limit alarm in your onboard computer.

    Excess fuel, Mass air flow sensor dirty, engine temperature sensor faulty, dirty air filters, oxygen sensor faulty. Then go on to check fuel pressure and related items. All engines have blow by and it would be expected the blow by gas will be rich in UN-burnt fuel and oil mist in your case. The AOS will have oil around it including the hose, so when the crankcase has a little pressure then the valve will work sending the oil rich gas to the intake to be burnt ( causing carbon build up on intake valve stems, but that's another story). Look at how the engine knows the correct fuelling, one of those inputs to the ECU is giving the wrong information, I have mentioned a few, find it!

    Sounds like stretched cam chain (P0341 Camshaft position sensor 1), needs replaced to fix the rough running. Hotter engine makes the worn chain just that little bit longer to the point where it's way out in timing. Suggest you check the current draw of your starter. If it is very high and causes big voltage drop them maybe you have a bad starter motor. Most diagnostic tools have the crank voltage menu where you can check this.

    When the car came up to temp the DME relay would over heat and fail and the fuel pump would stop running . Installed new DME relay and it runs like a top now.

    I found a neat program that puts the 987 Chrono on your computer desktop. It displays the time and temp. I am also working on getting the workshop manuals to add to the 987 Basic Workshop manuals and 2005 wiring diagrams I have in electronic format. If you are interested email me or PM me Thank you

    They, and the con rod bolts should both be replaced.

    Yes Dennis, my car will do the same thing unless you put it in launch control. There is always a slight hesitation from a dead stop. Unfortunately the car is geared so tall that driving it like a 911 should be driven will put you in jail. But, never leave the car in default mode. As soon as you start up put in sport mode or drive it manually. The default mode is silliness to keep the mileage numbers down and runs the engine way below where it is happy. What I have learned with my TT S is that there is such a thing as a car being too powerful. In many ways my 2006 manual C4S is more fun to drive. I am considering going for a 992 GTS if it comes with a manual.

    Hi. Why go back, is my first question? What head unit do you have? If you want to go back to Porsche head unit, you are talking big $$$$. My Boxster head unit doesnt spit out CD's, a rebuilt repalcement unit is around $3200 + installation. Plus it depends on how the current head unit was installed, wiring-wise? Do you have a Bose system?

    I have an OBD II reader from Auto Zone for $100 that will cancel a water temp gauge failure, but will not cancel/erace an airbag code. My water temp gauge failure is due to the Porsche computer doesn't recognize my LS3 motor. I also have the Durametric program which does it all. More expensive and you need a PC laptop. I bought an 11" Lenovo laptop for $119 from Best Buys that will run the Durametric program. If you plan on keeping the Porsche as I assume you do, then I would consider purchasing the Durametric program. The point is if you go with a cheapie OBD reader you need to be sure what it will and will not do... Are there any considerations as to running the car without functioning CATS?

    Activating the ABS/PSM pump and control system while bleeding is only required if air has gotten into the control network. During a normal maintenance flush, it is not required.
