  1. Thanks for the feedback, I will be doing the front sway bar endlinks here in a day or so, so I will know if its that. Are you suggestion the ones by the front bumper, the 2 large sway bar bushings that are connect to the frame, was a problem you had? I will look at those tonight, they are hard to see without remove the belly pan, so didnt check them previously, although the little I can see of the outside end of them, the "look" ok. I have also pushed up on the stabilizar bar to see if there is excessive movement in them, and there isnt. Maybe Ill just do these as well, after the end l
  2. Ok, Ive read all the threads on front end clunking, so ive pryed on all the front bushings in the lower control arms, end links, upper control arms, even checked front subframe bolts. I know it could be upper strut mount as others have found, but no way to check. Everything seems ok for 60k on my 2005 CTT. Sway bar links felt the softest, so have new ones on order. But i cant get then to make noise yanking or prying. Also no looseness or play when i Jack up the front corners and do the 9 and 3 and 12 and 6 movements. I get the clunking and overall loose front end feeling most on wash
  3. I am a newer owner (since September 2017) of a 2005 Cayenne Turbo with 47,000 miles, and over the last few days, I have noticed when in "normal" ride height, the front appears to be sitting a bit lower than normal, measured about 1/2 lower, evenly both fronts, so there is a rake to it unlike being pretty even up to this point since owning it. I did the measurements from the frame points to the ground, and the front seems within spec, about 1mm on the low side for RF and LF, and the rears are on the high side, at the upper limit of the +/-10mm, so this adds up to about the 0.5" I have noticed
  4. Thanks lewisweller, I have seen some of your posts. Fortunately the dealer gives me a loaner car, but still it's not fun to keep going through this. I keep rinsing with hot water from my garage house the top of the motor till i see it run out the bellhousing the 2 times now that out leaked. It sounds like its when the coolant sits in there, keeps running down and building up, heats and dries forming crusties that destroys the torque pump seal, I hope. What happened with the head gaskets on yours, what symptoms did you have, and what caused it? I thought head gaskets failing on these
  5. Hello all, I purchased my first Porsche, a 2005 Cayenne Turbo in Sep. has 44000 miles and mechanically is in great shape, no issues. With the help of this forum I budgeted to replace the coolant pipes with the upgraded alumn ones after purchase. I called around for pricing, went to a local ex porsche dealer who still has their master tech, and got them replaced. This was done proactively as the original plastic pipes were not leaking. About 500 miles later, lost a good chunk of coolant, out the bellhousing weep holes, the very thing i was trying to avoid. Dealer said pressure te
