    I just picked up a well taken care of high mileage tt, so I had new plugs coils, both diffs serviced, oil service, brake flush so I now have a baseline. about 50 miles after service, cel pops up.

    shows misfires on 3 and 6 cylinders. car runs excellent however. ive been using my indie for 20 years and he is a turbo specialist(built a 935 for a shop car).

    hes stumped because the car runs so well. it does have a 1 bar flash, tubi exaust, awe headers. I don't know what company did the flash though. im wondering if the MAF sensor may be fouled, or the flash on ECU is to blame.

    This is my 1st 996 tt, very different from my 930s.

    Am I missing something obvious? should I send my ecu to a reputable Porsche tuner?

    any and all advice is very welcome. The car is a blast to drive...pss9s front and rear aftermarket adjustable anti sway bars and drop links, handles very well.

    But the CEL is driving my crazy.




    You need to run a fault code scanner. It will tell you exactly which cylinder(s) the problem it on.

  2. Easy enough to test - remove the drive belt and run the engine for a few seconds if the squeal goes away then it is something in the pulley system.

    If it does not go away then you need to look at other potential causes: bellow leak at the bottom of the AOS, cracked oil filler tube, or serious internal engine issues.
