  1. It was a loose drop link. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. That sounds really scary. I am reading this as I am getting all my coils replaced. Maybe I should just look into selling the car instead. Sucks I really love that car. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2W5qidpo0u4. My car is doing the exact same thing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks everyone I will go ahead and do that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I was thinking more like water going down the air filter some how. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. So after I took my car for a simple aliments and got new tires I started hearing this kicking noise from the front passenger side. Took it to Firestone and they couldn’t find out what it was. Any ideas? I might have to take it to the dealer but was wondering if that happened to anyone before. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I keep the car outside. I don’t get that issues after washing the car. Only after it rains for a while I experience that issue. After a few days later the engine check is gone and the car runs fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I just checked those not long ago and they were fine. I just changed the spark plugs too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I have 2003 996 with 84k miles that hates the rain. Was wondering if anyone had a similar issue and figured out a solution. I get engine check lights on and flashing with the car shaking after each time it rains. Checked the code and I am getting random misfires and cylinder 5 and 1 misfire.

  10. When pulling up to a red light: 1) I disengage the clutch 2) Pull the shifter out into neutral 3) Engage the clutch back into neutral Then when the green light appears: 1) Disengage the clutch 2) Attempt to bring the shifter into first gear, but it stops half way from neutral and first, as if something inside is blocking the pathway. And Yes, I have the clutch pedal completely down. I have also encounter that problem when down shifting from second to first. My solution usually trying 2-1 or 3-1. I have read through the forms and saw that problem appeared for others and I was wondering if anyone found an easy fix for it. It can get annoying doing so each time.

  11. I am trying to reset. Reverse the battery on the key? +and-? The key apparently had a bad battery. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hello Loren, My car switch for the doors to pick and unlock blinks red but doesn’t work now. Any clues? Sometime it works and sometime it doesn’t. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thank you so much Loren for your advice. I will look into it. Just to add the led on the works fine each time I press the button. It blinks red. Could be the problem be still in the key nothing in the car? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hello, I had this car for about few month now and since I got it the remote never worked. Things I have tried: 1). Replaced battery 2). Followed this video to reset key: 3). Tried a few things by locking and unlocking the door and it only worked a few random times then it stoped. The car was sold to me with an after market Sony CD player and an after market amp. I haven’t tried taking it to Porsche yet and I was wondering if there is anything I could do to fix it. The one time it worked randomly I liked how the seat also moves into position. I would really like for it to function like it should. 2003 Porsche 996 with 83,000 miles. Other observations: The car switch for locking and unlocking the doors sometimes doesn’t work. I have to turn the car on usually for it to work or use the key manually to open passenger door or fuel tank access door. Not sure if that is normal but when trying to lock the doors using the car switch while driving the car would lock doors and sound the door locked alarm which is funny.

  15. It’s hard for me to do all that since I don’t have a garage, but thank you for the details. I took the car to reputable Porsche mechanic and they were very honest with me with decent price quotes. They have found more vacuum air leak and they are fixing that as well. I can’t wait to get the car back. I already missed it. I also hope that I could have some peace after that for a while at least with no issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. The noise is from the SAI pump and I got that fixed just like what Ahsai mentioned. The post I added was from a coolant leak I found under my car. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Hello Ahsai, After some investigation I did find an air leak on the vacuum line and fixed which fixed everything and car runs great. I also found out where the coolant is leaking from as attached in the picture. I just don’t think that’s the job I can do. After hearing that I will have to drop the engine scared me off. I will try to take it to a mechanic tomorrow and see how much they will quote me for it. Your recommendations or comments are always welcome. Peter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. That was rough. I got it done with no damage and didn’t have to remove the airbags. I just unplugged the battery. Idk if I recommend doing that to other though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Thanks. I was able to move the window without removing the airbag so far. Should I continue without removing or remove it to be safe? I am removing the motor now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Any recommendations on how to remove it. I am scared from it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Thank you for your reply. I just didn’t wanna pay Porsche 200 just to get it reset when I did all the work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Do you have to remove the air bag while working on removing the window regulator? I unplugged the battery to be safe and I didn’t want the air bag lights to come on but now I realized I need to move the window down to get access to it but I can’t Because I unplugged the battery. Can I still work with the battery bulged and car is on with out unplugging the airbag. Just worried this thing will go off on me. First time doing this so any tips and comments will be so helpful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Thank you very much I was worried it would was something else. I will look into how to lubricate it. I was even scared to drive it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Hello, After 5 minuets when the engine is warmed up that sound goes away and I hear this sound here like there is something is leaking: Please comment and let me know what you guys think. Thank you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
