  1. I am not trying to be thick, but do you fish new versions of just the wires involved through the existing bundle, run duplicate wires, or replace the entire the bundle, which would be basically most the wires to the electronics in the front of the car?
  2. Great........ If you isolate a short in a wire harness that runs through the firewall to the ECU, what do you even do? Put tape over the CEL?
  3. I agree with you on this. My problem is that I have replaced the pump/valve assembly and the filter and I still have the code.
  4. 2010 Carrera S 6M Cab 150k miles TLDR: Dealer tells me the code is 2402 and Durametric returns 0024 with a description that matches the dealer. I am getting screwey values when I look up actual values. I try to clear codes and they don't seem to clear. Has anyone else seen this? I got CEL after about 1000 miles after replacing the catalytic converters myself. I pulled the codes with my Durametric and got: 0024 - DMTL Diagnosis module for tank leakage; pump drive rUpper limit exceeded 0010 - Intake camshaft driver I took it to Porsche because I wrongly figured this was
  5. Thanks for asking! 0010 and 0024 I posted it as a separate thread: Renntech.org
  6. UPDATE - Started getting codes on the CAT. Tried ignoring it, but it did not work. I had to grind them off and put in new ones. Now I have new codes.
  7. 2010 Carrera S Cab 6M 149K Miles So...... I replaced the catalytic converters and the oxygen sensors. I reset the codes and started a Charlotte to DC trip. A few hundred miles into it the CEL came back on. I had lots of driving left to do. I finally got a chance to pull the codes and they are attached. After watching a John Rabby Video, I thought I would check the Ready Status. OMG, I have no idea what to make of it - also attached. If anybody has suggestions, I am anxious to hear them. Thanks!!
  8. I was clearing codes and the Durametric seems to have hung at the air conditioner. (that is where a fault was) Is pressing cancel an option (I am obviously a noob)
  9. 2010 C2S 108K miles I was planning to replace the plugs. I went to remove the mufflers. They were very corroded - especially the two I do not have to remove. I used penetrating oil (acetone + AFT). They are much prettier, but they are still corroded. Here is a 1 min video of the bolts so you can see what I am facing: Questions: If I get started on removing them and it does not go well, what next? Surely I don't have to replace the catalytic converters? Are the bolts somehow replaceable? Do they look too far gone?
  10. If you use penetrating oil to disassemble, does it cause the bolts to come loose after you reassemble them? Do you have to clean the parts somehow afterwards or just retighten to the proper torque and be done with it?
  11. I got my 2010 997.2 Cab in June. I am really happy with it so far. My fingers are crossed and I am knocking wood, no major repairs so far. The previous owner had installed SmartTop 997 from Mods4Cars.com. I never would have known it had the instructions not been printed out on 8.5 x 11 paper in the glove box. It is great. It allows you to open and close the top with one touch. This is really cool when you are driving or parking (below 30 mph). I also lets you put the windows up and down more easily and make other fiddly changes that I have forgotten because once you set it
  12. I don't mean to poke a bear here. It is just that I see many differing values quoted around the site for oil change intervals. I believe the Porsche owners manual says changes should happen at 20,000 miles. In posts, here and other sites, I have seen recommendations from 2,000 to 15,000. I have had the occasion to break bread with people who design motor oil additives and motor oils. They seem like they really know what they are talking about. I expect that Porsche know what they are talking about as well. I am familiar with Porsche's leather tanning and finish
  13. Thanks for the advice. I have some slightly cooked fingers, but It I got the oil level correct.
  14. Got a new to me 2010 997.2 Carerra S. This is my first Porsche having owned a series of BMWs. I watched a number of DIYs on the oil change and it seemed to go off without a hitch. I warmed up the engine prior and let it drain for about 3 hours while I attended to other things. I changed the filter and put in 10qts of oil. Now the oil level light says it is over full. I guess that is ok as it was eating about a quart a month which seems normal to a BMW owner. I figured it would drop over a few weeks but it hasn't. Now about once every day or
