  1. So, for folks who have done the coolant line replacement themselves and/or had it done proactively (to prevent the steamy experience on the freeway far from home). What is the course of action we should take? Like collect receipts, and what welse (Evidence in form of plastic pipes?) Thanks much for the effort on this... Dan
  2. RL Hornbeck, and others responding, About finding the issue Had Cyl 8 and sometimes 1 missfire codes set (P0308/1), and my CTT idled rough. Suspected coils/plugs, but swapping did not help. Problem got worse and worse. also seemed to notice increased hissing sound while idling... hence gently sprayed Brake Cleaner along intake manifold (near to injector rail) and noticed significant increase in RPM near Cyl 8. this gave me the clue about the intake manifold gasket being blown. Sure enough, after removal of "intake Distributor" it showed missing end corner on Cyl 8.... Wondering: Was this a mistake on my side some 5000 miles ago when I did the coolant line Job? thanks again to all who share / and donate :-)
  3. Hi There - We would also like to change the oil in our 2005 Cayenne Turbo v8. Have you taken a stab at it yet? Thanks! coco
  4. We have a Cayenne Turbo 2005, and recently attached a stainless steel skid-plate to the front valence. It adds a nice bit of contrast and pizzazz to the look of the front. See the following image: ‘newly_installed_steel_skid_plate’ We found it tough to get comprehensive instructions for the install that relate to the Cayenne Turbo, so I am passing on the steps here that we followed. Overall, once we figured out that we did NOT have to take off the complete front bumper clip (like described in other postings and fairly difficult on the Turbo model) it only took about one hour. I recommend leaving on the protective plastic sheath on the skid-plate throughout the process until it is mounted on the valence (assuming that you get it with a plastic sheath). STEP I The first step is to take the front valence off of the front bumper. The valence is attached to the bumper via a number of tongues on the valence that correspond to slots in the bumper, and to a number of screws that attach the valence to each side of the bumper and to frame underneath the front. See the following images: ‘front_valence_clips’ ‘front_ bumper_valence_clip_slots’ ‘front_ bumper_valence_clip_slots_and_valence_screw_mounts’ ‘front_bumper_valence_screw_mounts’ STEP II The next order of business is to cut out the corresponding areas on the valence for the extruded portions of the skid-plate and for the skid-plate holding posts to fit in. We used a dremel tool for the larger cut-outs, and a drill bit for the holes. Then, the skid-plate can be fit onto the valence and the holding rods can be held into place with the eyelets. Don’t forget to add the small black plastic strip along the lower portion of the SS skidplate. See the following images: ‘front_valence_new_screw_holes_and_cut-outs’ ‘inner_surface_of_valence_with_skid_plate_1’ ‘inner_surface_of_valence_with_skid_plate_2’ STEP III Take the protective plastic sheath off of the skid-plate, and re-mount the valence with the skid-plate. Finally, add the rubber plugs supplied with the skid-plate to the new cut-out areas.
