As far as I am aware there was no issue with the other side. We'll try the oil filter first and see what that turns up. What is the estimated time to R&R the engine ? I could get a Kombi or Beetle engine out in under an hour LoL
Cheers, Yes I will order a Durametric, but this may be a case of the horse has bolted with my issue. Other than the oil filter I take it what the mechanic is suggesting, ie engine out is the only way to really check what this issue is ?
Thanks Wizard... I don't have the Durametric, I was quoting the codes the mechanic gave me. Are you suggesting it may be a chain guide ? The deviation seemed a bit scary to me, but can't understand how it runs with such a discrepancy... or do the electronics sort it out ? Seems to run fine and just goes into a rough idle occasionally, Toby (mechanic) says it sounds 'a bit rattly' on that bank.
G'Day... new to forum and my first 911 after 40 years of dreaming and running too many various hot VW's and rotors : ) I have an early 2008 Australian delivered Carrera 2S that had a engine light - go to garage - come on after a rough idle and stall at the lights. I have done nearly 6000 k's since buying the car, and yes I have been using the performance, including a run down the drag strip a couple of weeks previous (13.3 @ 115mph) I have taken it to a local German specialist (we have no Porsche dealer nearby) and the fault codes that it is throwing up are P0303 (cylinder 3 misfire), P0302 (cylinder 2 misfire), P0301 (cylinder 1 misfire), and P0011A (Camshaft position system performance), with Bank 1 deviation 13 degrees ! The mechanic also noted P0401 (control deviation) and P0016 (Crankshaft to camshaft position) !!!! HELP ? The car has been dealer serviced annually and has 116000 km on the clock. To me it appears to run fine, from the drivers seat anyway, after reset the engine light has gone off and initially stayed off for a couple days then returned, hence took it to mechanic that looks after wife's GTI and sons Audi as they are all German trained and appear to know their stuff. (Good local reputation, that can't be said of Porsche dealer that is more than 4 hours away) The mechanic can't do anything for a couple of weeks so I have brought the car home on a tilt tray and was hoping someone out there may be able to point me in the right direction... He has suggested, stretched cam chain ?, broken chain guide ?, and suggested the only real option is engine and gearbox out before they can even assess what it is. Obviously I am a little concerned as this was a big spend downunder for what appeared to be an immaculate car... three months of ownership and I am looking at the engine out, many $$$$ with no ability to get a quote as they have no idea what the real issue is. It starts fine and I idled it off the transporter and parked it up. Any assistance or ideas are appreciated. Cheers.
