Thank you! I did check the radiators and they are clear. I'm wondering if the sending unit might be off. On a related note when I pull into the garage with the oil warm the car smells slightly sulphur like. Might I have a clogged cat? The car has 53k miles on the chassis (unknown miles on the engine as it is a replacement motor installed by a prior owner).
I have a question about oil temperatures. My car seems to run a bit warm (225 during slow, normal driving). what controls the oil temperature? Is it possible that the aftermarket gt3-style spoiler on my car is restricting air flow to the engine compartment? Thanks in advance!
Does anybody know whose car this is? I bought it in December and am looking for info to contact the PO. Thanks!
mocohead replied to mocohead's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thank you! I expect some degradation in ride quality. How much worse are we talking? Again your expertise is appreciated!
Hello all, I have researched and read quite a bit about this subject and I'm a bit torn. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated! I have a 2005 C2 Carrera with 50k miles. The car feels a bit floaty so I suspect it is time for shocks. I'm debating between doing Bilstein B6 sport shocks vs B16 coilovers. My use case is daily driving on the war torn streets of LA. A couple of times a year I hpde instruct for BMW CCA but don't use r-comps. I don't want to lower the car much if at all (lots of speed bumps and steep driveways) and want to retain decent ride quality. Which route would you recommend? Thank you very much in advance for the feedback!
mocohead replied to mocohead's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)So it's not something I hear but definitely something I profoundly feel
mocohead replied to mocohead's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thanks I'll look at that!
Thank you very much!
Loren may I please imoose on you to suggest the correct wiring? I tried the splicing I found on other threads and it didn't work. My indie plans to splice into the body mounted brake light harness and I'd like to make sure that's the right plan. Thanks!
My 05 C2 has 41k miles on it. the motor was replaced sometime after 2008 based on the motor number. It has a very pronounced shudder between 1600 and 1800 rpm, in gear or in neutral, which gets worse as the car gets warmer. There are no codes or cel illuminated. Thoughts are greatly appreciated!
Hello My new to me 05 C2 Coupe came with a fixed wing with no brake light on it. the shop that did the install hacked the harness to bits... I took it to my indie this morning to program the car to fixed wing. the alarm at 75 mph is gone but the warning about the raised brake light remains on the cluster. the third brake light on the body is not working at all. Thoughts?
