Need help to instruction to remove and install a pair of hood Struts. The old pare is no long hold up good. Thanks a lot. 1996 C2
Call dealer again and ask about the overheat issue. The true is I need a new coolant reservoir tank which is cracked. Thank you for all your input.
Hi, the temp gauge is over the 180 mark and close to the next mark. The engine running rich and hot one left side was according the dealer told me. The coolant is kind normal. The thermostat been checked and it's okay. If possible, can you hint me how to replace the Oil Separator, and what parts I need. Thanks.
Thanks again! Sorry I did state clearly. The temperature gauge was passed the right middle (usually only stay in the center) and went to close to next digit, front fans was engaged however I could not tell if the rear fan on or not. The over heat light not on yet because I not drove it too far (20-30miles). The car was run rich and hot on left side for sure.
Thank you very much for your nice comments. Yes, the car running hot than normal recently and causing engine stalled during traffic. I was change a lot of things already, fuel filter, spark plugs, MAF sensor, spark plugs sleeves and of cause, added the injector cleanser, frequently. My local Porsche (and European cars) mechanic shop can not resolve this problem, so I go to the dealer. Any other suggestion? Thanks again.
tt2001 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi, My ’99 C2 (62,000M) has the P1124 code constantly for 6 months, I bring the car to the dealer this weekend. They told me it was bad Oil Separator which will cost me $2,100 to replace it. My question is can it be DIY? how hard it is ? where it locate? Also they mentioned the card has a little overheat on left-side of engine cyn1-3, it was a bad cool barrel, what’s that? They quote me $850 for fix it. Any input will much appreciate.
