Ok, I'm going to throw out a serious hail marry here. Does anyone know the resistance values and or testing procedures for the solenoids in a 1990 964 tip? I have a car here that will shift into no forward gears. Reverse is fine, but as soon as you get into a froward gear, the car won't move. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
dr914jr replied to function12's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)That looks to be the drivers side of the engine. Your leak must be coming from the oil separator or the coolant line that leads to it. It is likely that the coolant line connection at the separator has cracked or the line is leaking,

Are you referring to the top of the cabin filter housing or to the oil filler cap? If the oil cap is making a sucking noise than you might have a failed oil separator.
Rather than spending money to increase power try looking to improve sensation. I learned back in my daily driver 914 days that you don't need to have 500hp to have a great time. Throttle response, top shelf tires (don't ever skimp on tires), and a bit of exhaust noise will let you have all the fun you should have on the street. Once you truly know that you need more power then a Turbo or GT3 are the next logical step.

has not set their status
dr914jr replied to logray's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I hate to say it but if i were in your shoes I'd replace the alternator again.
The issue turned out to be an interment-ant issue with the latch micro-switch. It worked fine with a multimeter but once it was reinstalled it wouldn't work correctly. What a **** waste of time. :cursing:
