Steve Kellett posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Did my first track day. I would recommend it to all with a 911. Ran around the Lightning track at New Jersey Motorsports Park. Got 4 sessions, 2 at 20 minutes and 2 at 25 minutes. Club provided good driving instructors. Had my car up to 118 mph. Did the event with stock brake pads and stock tires, ground the hell out of both.
Steve Kellett replied to lenelsa's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I overfilled mine once by 1/4 quart. I put a large plastic measuring cup under the drain plug, cracked it loose until it dripped and let 1/4 quart drain out, tighten plug, good to go.
I read up a lot on this issue and concluded the lube the dealer uses is the correct one. At the 12 year mark I had the dealer change the fluid and while it was in bleed the clutch. The trans shifts super smooth once warmed up but is a bit hesitant when its cold to go into 2nd so I go 1st to 3rd until shes warm then no issues.
Steve Kellett replied to gla's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I have same problem, thnx will try this same thing
Steve Kellett replied to erey's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)there is a utube video on that maintenance item I think it is a vacuum line and just pulls off...carefully
The Radiator Store sells them for $50 per set, look, fit and work great
997.1 does not come with grills to prevent debris from getting into radiators. The Radiator Store sells grills for both openings for $50 for the pair. The fit is great and they work great and look great. But if you are picky about how they installation is they are held in place by zip ties. If you cant live with the zip ties, two other companies sell them I believe one is $300 for the set and the other sells from $250 for the set.
Air filter so easy, look on utube for video. you need to take air box out and once its out you can access serpentine belt, replacing it is 5 minute job so easy. Filter was $11 from Pelican parts, belt was $40 from Porsche, utube video free. took me 30 minutes to do both.
I used Porsche belt, only about $40. When I moved the tensioner to the end of its travel the new belt was just long enough to slip on. Other brands may not have exactly the correct length. For $40 I would go with Porsche belt.
Not sure how these fans are suppose to function. My left seems to run all the time and my right side not at all. Any experience out there with these items? thank you
