  1. 999 170 207 91 Spark Plug 14FGR 6KQU All new spark plugs are 4 prong. Porsche still states for MY00 and older 30,000 mile intervals while MY01 and newer can go 60,000 miles. Don't ask me why... they both use the same plug now.
  2. P1531 is an open connection on the camshaft sensor connection. Likely causes (according to the manual) are a loose or broken sensor wire, no power to sensor, or faulty DME relay. Porsche did have some problems with the Hall sensors on early cars so I wouldn't rule that out.
  3. :welcome: Yes, see my DIY pages. Manuals - It depends on how much you plan to do yourself. I bought my set of 16 volumes in 2000 for $487. Those same manuals cost almost 3X that today. If you do invest in the manuals make sure you get all the latest updates (Porsche calls them "supplements"). With a new order they should give you all current supplements (about 85 to date as I recall). When supplements come out they run $9-$12 each. A good alternative is AllDataDIY.com and they have much of the common information for a subscription price of $24.95 and $14.95 to renew or add cars. F
  4. I sent you an email with the TSB and a parts list...
  5. For your MY car Porsche says to change at 90,000 miles. The additional maintenance checklist is here. If your car is driven hard or has track time I personally would change it yearly. MP gear oil is cheap and it's good to see if have any abnormal wear particles in the drained oil. The manual transmission oil change procedure is pretty easy and is in a DIY here
  6. P304 - Misfire, Cylinder 3, Damaging to Catalytic Converter P306 - Misfire, Cylinder 6, Damaging to Catalytic Converter P150 - Oxygen Sensor Ahead of Catalytic Converter (Cylinders 4 - 6) - Intercore Short Circuit or Limited Voltage Increase P1126 - Oxygen Sensing Adaptation Area 1 (Cylinders 4 - 6) - Rich Threshold (IMHO) I think you need to quit driving this car until you find the problem. Chances are you could have burnt another O2 sensor. Have you looked for intake leaks like the oil filler hose (cracked?). TSB 9/00 1715 specificaly states:
  7. Another option is WheelEnhancement.com. They can repair your wheel or offer you an exchange wheel or new wheel.
  8. No, 70C is the color. The parts list shows country and model, etc. if needed.
  9. In most cases the O2 sensor is not the problem - it is the device reporting the problem. P1128 and P1130 say that the fuel mixture is so lean that the DME can not increase the richness enough to compensate. This is usually caused by an intake (or exhaust) system leak, a blocked fuel filter, or low fuel pump pressure. Since (both sets of 3) cylinder banks report the same issue it is unlikely a fouled injector.
  10. 996 641 115 03 70C is a Canadian Instrument Cluster (complete) for MY99-01 C4 (4WD) 6 speed in Rally Black color.
  11. Near the bottom of the page are DIY's for GT3, TT and GT2. The Oil Change for Turbos is here
  12. No. Turning on the OBC will not generate an error/fault code. Mine is on right now (and has been for 3 years). I also have not done the OBC hack - I just get the outside temp. I have a scanner and my car shows no fault codes. But your dealer should check for any fault codes BEFORE they turn it on - that's just plain "good practice".
  13. No, the dealer must do this with a PST2/3. The idea behind the airbag control is that when the child seat is present it shuts off the airbag - and when you remove the child seat it turns it back on. Sounds like a safe solution to me...
  14. Not as long as you keep the cats and oxygen sensors.
  15. Have a look at this thread to see how to mod the switching... If you don't have the full (factory) install instructions -- PM me and I will email them to you.
  16. The studs (M 8 x 22) that come out of the turbos are: 900 081 059 00 The gasket is: 996 111 217 70 The nuts (for the studs) are: 999 084 052 02 and the washers are: 900 031 032 02
  17. The gray item in the center of your picture is the solenoid. If you follow the black vacuum lines one should go to the check valve.
  18. One of our members, CoreyNJ, has written an excellent DIY for the PCM 2. This is for the MOST equipped cars only. We have posted in the DIY section.You can read/print the PCM 2 DIY here.THANKS Corey!! :clapping:
  19. On Scouser's car there was a TSB for seat belt contacts making poor connection. That problem was (supposedly) fixed on production cars in Sept. 1999. AND, that fault caused the airbag to go on all the time -- not off. There is a ground under the drivers seat but you must remove the drivers seat to get to it. To remove the drivers seat you need an E12 (external Torx) socket and to be safe you should disconnect the battery so you don't trigger an airbag accidently. Or, since your car is still likely under warranty you could let the dealer trace this down.
  20. The air bag and seat belt circuits are different so this is odd. So, my first question is whether any electrical work has been done on the car recently (stereo, OBC hack, etc.). This sounds like something is mis-wired or the instrument cluster has gone bad.
