Its definitely a C2. You make a very good point...am i possibly being taken here?
"internal transmission lash they noticed as well"
CAS-4S replied to CAS-4S's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Just to update and close this thread. I ultimately replaced the lifter for JUST Cylinder 6, and that fixed the issue. Never had any more rough idle or CEL lights.
Soooooo took my 02 C2 coupe to the local porsche indy shop for general overview. After a 2-3 hrs of looking, they call me and said they noticed AOS leak. I told them to go ahead and fix it, worked out a decent price for it. This morning I get a call saying they drained the transaxle fluid and noticed "glittery shavings in the fluid.....We require more diag time and want to drop the transfer case to completely verify if your transmission is bad." Never had any grinding, or lag, or any transmission issues with the car. Oh and it has 61k miles on it. I asked if it was normal since the vehicle is 15 yrs old and 61k miles, and there are wearable parts inside of a transmission. He replied, "never normal for metal shavings in the fluid." Am i being had or am i being had? What level of validity does this diag have on what theyre saying? Please help as car is currently in the shop and on the lift as we speak.
CAS-4S replied to CAS-4S's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Bilal thanks for the response, did you change all the lifters for every cylinder or just the cylinder that you had a problem with?
SO, I got a beautiful CEL on my 02 C4S coupe 6 speed with 63k miles on it. After diag, the shop found a misfire coming from 3 cylinders (#4,5,6). The initial recommendation was to change the coils and plugs. So I changed all the coils and plugs on both sides. After completion, the misfire was still occurring with a heavy rough idle, this time, specific to cylinder 6 only. Then, i changed the injector for cylinder 6 (shop recommendation). After the injector, the rough idle was still present with the engine light as well. Then, the shop performed a leakdown test and found gas in cylinder 6. They cleaned it up, swapped coils from 5 and 6 to test proper functionality of coils. The leakdown test did not show any leaks however. SO after this was all said and done, the shop put it in additive, filled up the gas tank, and drove it for 50+ miles or so. The car function properly according to them and I drove it as well, and there no idle, no shaking, no engine lights, nothing. A week after I picked up the car from the shop, the rough idle began again after I gave the engine a little rev. The engine light was flashing, and the rough idle began again. The shop said it could be the lifters for cylinder 6. Any thoughts or anyone here experience similar issues with this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would like to gain some knowledge before taking it in back to them and throwing more money at this with no end solution.
