I had a similar problem on my 99 996. I sent both heads to Hoffman Automotive Machine (706)769-3783 – Where's Your Head? NEWSITE.HAMHEADS.COM M96 cracked cylinder head repair and was extremely satisfied with the results. I now have over two thousand miles on the rebuild and all is well.
Carlvs replied to redcab's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Yes, I’d recommend the Durametric Scan tool. Diagnostic Tool for Porsche | Durametric WWW.DURAMETRIC.COM Durametric software and tools for Porsche automotive diagnostics. Windows software allows you to read and reset trouble codes stored in your Porsche.
Carlvs replied to Nordiques's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Try this link.. Throttle cable adjustment - Rennlist - Porsche Discussion Forums RENNLIST.COM 996 Forum - Throttle cable adjustment - Anyone ever have throttle cable break on their C-2, mines not broken but throttle plate seems to stay open slightly causing a high idle. If I manipulate the gas pedal the idle will go down to correct rpms. Not sure if the cable is sticking or if its in the throttle body... Hi Nordiques, there is an orientation to the square plastic grommet at the throttle body. If not correct it may be your problem. good luck,
Carlvs replied to Nordiques's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)In recently rebuilt my 99 996 engine for the same reason, cracked cylinder head and an intermix problem. Make sure that you have some free play on the throttle cable and I would either replace the oil pressure sending unit or check your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. I’m currently using a 5W 40 oil and getting about 1.5 bar at idle when warmed up and between 3-4.5 bar depending on RPM elsewhere. 4-5 bar at idle when cold. New to me 996 with coolant intermix issue - Rennlist - Porsche Discussion Forums RENNLIST.COM 996 Forum - New to me 996 with coolant intermix issue - Hello there, I just acquired a 99 996 Cabriolet with a oil in the coolant and oil intermix issue. PO had replaced the oil cooler hoping that it would cure the issue but sadly it did not. Suspect a cracked head and wondered what other things should be looked at... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
Carlvs replied to rajk's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I hope that it does not worsen! But... if you should need new cases I have good set on Rennlist in the classifieds. Porsche 996 3.4 Engine cases - Rennlist - Porsche Discussion Forums RENNLIST.COM The Rennlist Marketplace - Porsche 996 3.4 Engine cases - Selling a set of used engine cases removed from a 1999 Porsche 911 with 62,000 miles on it.

Carlvs replied to CodyHayes's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi Cody, how many miles on the Boxster and how cheap? My suspicion is that it has a failing IMS bearing. If you’re not familiar with the term, google it and you’ll get quite the education on Porsche engine problems and potential cost in the thousands! If it’s cheap enough and the condition warrants, it may be worthwhile to peruse. Let’s see what other forum members have to say. Good luck.
Carlvs replied to Eștii's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Nice fuse diagram here. 1997 to 2006 – 911 (996) Fuses Box Diagram and Amperages List HOWTOPORSCHE.COM List of fuses and amperage for Porsche 911 (996) (1997 to 2006) including fuse box location and fuse box diagram Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
I would ask for a recent oil analysis.
Carlvs replied to Nicky03's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Look up the part number on a Porsche dealer site and then google it. Lots of vendors out there with OEM replacement parts/switches etc. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
