  1. I did the burping which did seem to make a big difference, as well as check the fuel cap and it was the correct one. Still yet though, in the end it started overheating.
  2. Extremely informative! Thanks a bunch. I’ll give that a go when I make it home from work today and let you know my results.
  3. I wasn’t aware of the vacuum fill requirement, I’ll be sure to get this done. I’m going to do this regardless, but do you think it will solve my problem with the symptoms I’ve listed? Thank you for telling me about the vacuum fill and for the radio code you provided me with yesterday lol As for the lid, I will check tomorrow when I get home from work. I am nearly positive its the stock lid it came with, but I will confirm this tomorrow. Thank you for mentioning that though, might save me a big headache if it is indeed the wrong fuel cap.
  4. Hey everyone. My 2002 986 2.7l five speed base model has been having some overheating issues ever since I busted my passenger side radiator from hitting a pothole. I have replaced the radiator of course with an aftermarket one from RockAuto fitted for this vehicle, but am still having overheating issues. You can occasionally here “gurgling” noises which makes me think it potentially needs bled after installing a fresh new radiator in it, but want some more opinions and ideas. On top of this, it appears I am also loosing fluid but cannot find any leaks. However, when the temperature gauge finally goes close to the 250° mark, you can pop the trunk and see it pressurized from droplets near the cap of the reservoir tank and it gets really warm back there. I have yet to lift up the trunk carpeting to see if the reservior is cracked causing me to lose fluids, but I don’t imagine this is the issue and it never gets abnormally low. I also cannot find a leak anywhere. When I say I’m loosing fluid, I mean it needs topped off nearly everytime. This is a process that has happened 5-6 times so I’m confident its not just the system needing more to cycle as if memory serves me right the base model only holds around 4 gallons of coolant total. Another additional thing worth mentioning, is that while replacing my radiator my mechanic slightly cracked the metal hosing belonging to my passenger side condenser. Of course all my freeon sprayed out, but was told it wouldn’t affect the main cooling system regarding the radiators themselves keeping the temp low. Any comment on that? Thank you all in advance for any help or advice you’re willing to offer, it is much appreciated.
  5. It worked perfectly! Thank you very much for your help, it saved me so much grief.
  6. Hello! Had to disconnect my battery today to do some work to the 2002 986. Becker CDR-220 Type: 4462 Serial: 250 10 195 Thanks in advance for any help!
