My 2004 Carrera coupe has developed a leak. It started after I flushed my cooling system. Rather sure it is around the AOS/associated lines. I've read various opinions about the difficulty of removing the AOS. But what I am interested in doing is just replacing those lines. Any experience or opinions on doing this? Specifically, is it even possible? Especially if this can be done without removing the intake manifold? Also I am only finding the upper oil separator coolant hose. What about the second one?
B_Zerpersande replied to my996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My plan was something like yours. Except I am going to flush the entire system repeatedly with tap water. After this a radiator flush will be added and then the entire system flushed again with tap water. I will then repeat the flushing process using about 15 gallons of distilled water. Yes, this is overkill, but with only 20L boxes available, I decided that two additional cycles will make sure there is essentially nothing but distilled water in my system. I'll then use your 50/50 and full concentration meyhod. It won't be exactly 50/50 but it will be close. Thanks for the post bc your idea really firmed mine up.
