Jason Mulholland replied to jbabington's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Anyone have any thoughts on my '04 Carrera? My May post above outlines some of my efforts to date. Since the Variable Timing Solenoid swap, I pulled the left bank chain tensioner, which seems to be functioning as it should. When I pulled the two green plugs on the camshafts, I noted the cam shafts lined up (suggestion timing is not out of whack). Car has been sitting in my garage for months and I'm completely out of ideas. Anyone? Help appreciated. I bought the Durametric and hooked it up. Showed the same misfires to left bank without any new codes.
Jason Mulholland replied to jbabington's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Could a bad Variable Timing Adjustment solenoid cause bank one to misfire on all cylinders and car not run? I have a 2004 996 C2 3.6 that I have been trying EVERYTHING to get running. The problem began during a cold start. Started fine, but while warming up, it started to run rough, then shut down. It cranks, and if I pump the gas it will run but only if I keep above 2k RPMs. Actron pocket OBD2 reader shows all P0300,301,302,303. No other actual codes, but monitors show misfire, catalyst, EVAP, 02 sensor, 02 heater. I swapped the Variable Lift solenoids (the other ones) ea
The idea to remove the mufflers was key... until the mufflers ended up dangling from the PSE actuator lines. Fortunately, I was able to push the muffler on the driver side backward enough to get to #2 and forward enough to access #1. Work still in progress (#4 yet to go). Bracket is the biggest obstruction to accessing #4.
