  1. Hi Guys, Sorry for the late update. Hope this helps anyone with similar symptoms. I thought to try the cps first as it was only £40 and as i thought at the time an easy fix. Unfortunately mine was stuck in the housing and after lots of pulling and prying it snapped in. due to the location this was quite a nightmare. I ended up buying some hex shank 3.5mm drill bits, hex shank extenders, and carefully drilled around the outer plastic edge of the CPS as many times as I could, then chiselled, pried and picked it out the magnet out of the middle came out first. this took me about 4 hrs. I also had use of a ramp. after installing the new one the car still did not start. Next I tried the fuel pump relay, that didn't work either. Lastly I tried the fuel line (the one behind the expansion bottle in the engine bay. why I didn't try this first I'll never know? oh well at least now I have experience in removing stuck parts from an engine. he he. any way once i undid the fuel line turned on the ignition no fuel came out eureka a definite problem to sort. after doing some asking around and searching the web i found out that here in my own town (Doncaster UK) we have a Porsche breakers i rang up and sourced a second hand fuel pump for£70 fitted it a it started straight away. The Breakers details are Porsche Haven 07553 875543 ask to speak to Mike very very fair and helpful. Mention Mike with the silver 996, he 'll maybe give some discount Anyway i Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thanks for all your help as I really couldn't of done it with out you all. Gonna try to add a picture of my old fuel pump? Thanks Mike Sorry my picture is 6.7 MB so wont let me add it.
  2. Brill is that with the relay in or do I have to use a jumper over middle two terminals? Gonna try and get pump out and check on Monday. Thanks so much for the help
  3. Can you tell me if the pump should pump whilst cranking the car? I've disconnected the pipe from behind coolant res tried cranking, no fuel is coming? Thanks Mileet
  4. Hi can any one tell me if theres any way of testing the fuel system(diy) maybe removing a pipe and measuring volume of fuel? also does the 996(2003) suffer with dme relay problems as of the old 993s? thanks Mileet
  5. does that sound like the right diagnosis for the symptoms i described no faults showing on snap on computer? thanks
  6. Sorry whats the difference between a pulse sensor and a crank shaft sensor? thanks Mike
  7. Sorry Loren is that the right part number as mines a 996, and that part number is 986? Thanks Mike
  8. Is this the part that would make the car stop running? had a few occasions over the last 12 months where the car would almost cut out/or cut out then misfire real bad until I managed to rev through it. the last few times it happened a message came up that said oil pressure to low. I had it full serviced ,and it ran fine for about a week , then same message appeared all i had to do was turn car off for two minutes then restart it misfired for a bit then revved through it. i left it ticking over for about an 40 mins (had a small accident) i could hear the misfire sound and this time it cut out, i went back to try and start it after maybe 10 mins and now it cranks but won' start. i've put fuel in still no joy
  9. Hi Guys, Can anyone please help with the part number for the CPS for my 2003 996 carerra auto. thanks mileet
  10. Thanks again What is the CPS? Also how do we find out what correct fuel volume and pressure are? Thanks Mileet
  11. Thanks so much JFP, I van here the fuel pump prime when ignition is turned on, I've read on here that the DME relay can cause simular symptoms would you agree? I'm not to sure as I don't really understand. Thanks Mileet
  12. Hi guys, I'm new to the site so please be patient with me? (Also grammar isn't my strong point) So, I've owned my 2003 996 carrera for the past 2 years and for the most part its been trouble free. I got it with 110,000 miles its now got 130,000. Maybe 5-6 times over the last year it's started misfiring as I come to a stop, it starts up after maybe 2 minutes and misfires for 30-40seconds, then runs fine. The last two times this has happened the display has said low oil pressure as it's been misfiring, but then starts running normally with no message? Any how just before Christmas I started the car as normal and left it ticking over but got held up,so it was probably idling for 40mins. I heard a loud misfiring sound and it cut out. I thought it had run out of fuel so I put a gallon in and it went up to a quarter. I tried starting it but it turns over but won't start. I have since had it towed in to a garage and they have plugged the computer into it and no faults are showing. Can anyone help as the garage isn't to sure? Thanks in advance Mileet P.S. it's a triptronic
