    2008 Porsche Cayenne Turbo
  1. I am having a similar problem with my 08 Cayenne turbo. When it is very cold outside and driving a short distance the radiator fan runs at high speed and the temperature gauge reads normal or a bit below normal, ac/defrost off. The heat is working good, turn off the heat and the rad fan still runs full blast until I turn the key off. I had replaced both fans due to the corrosion problems with the modules and that time the rad fan ran all the time full blast and stayed on for 30 seconds after the the key was turned off. The current problem is intermittent and only happens when it is very cold a
  2. Hi stebergl, How many km does your 08 Turbo have, what problem did you have and what did the mechanic do to fix it? My mechanic said it is a known issue that the timing chains wear (or stretch) when the mileage gets to around 100,000 miles or 160,000 km to the point that the variocam tolerance is more than 12 degrees and it can longer self adjust to compensate for the difference between the banks. When this happens the camshaft sensors will flag the P0016 code. The only fix in this case is to replace the timing chain. I suppose it may be possible to make a re-calibrati
  3. My timing chain was worn (stretched) and the upper U shaped chain guide had a piece of the plastic break off and fall into the oil pan. The engine and most of the drive-train was dropped down on to the shop floor to have the timing chain, oil chain all the chain guides, sprockets, bolts and hardware replaced. I purchased the timing chain kit from FCP- Euro and had the work performed by TSH auto in Toronto. It cost close to $5500 CDN which included all the parts and labour plus oil/filter change, alignment and all fluids. 176000 km and the full service history from a Porsche dealer shows that
  4. Hi Nismo05, Did you replace all the solenoids on spec. or did you find they were all faulty? Was it a bad cam actuator solenoid for Bank 1 that was gummed up or malfunctioning? I have read that the VVT solenoids are more difficult to replace and the solenoids are all pricey so I wouldn't want to replace them all unless it"s necessary. In the above quoted post by member Fmscell he reported that all that was required to clear his P0016 code was by re-timing the camshafts with a special fixture.
  5. Hi Fmscell, I have a 2008 Cayenne Turbo with the CEL on and code P0016. How much did it cost to have the engine cam timing checked and adjusted. I am also in Toronto can you recommend a shop to have this checked and adjusted.
  6. Ditto for me, also replaced the fan and it fixed the problem, there was a crack in the connector on the control unit on the back of the fan motor where the wiring harness enters it. Green oxidation was clearly visible once the fan assembly was removed from the vehicle. The quality of this expensive part is disappointing, shame on Bosch, V.W. and Porsche for not making this better. I have much older American and Japanese cars with more mileage with dual electric cooling fans that have not had any problems with the fans. The part number is 0130706202 by Bosch approx. CAD$520.00 not cheap!
  7. My 2008 turbo has just developed the same problem. The radiator fan turns on full speed when the ignition is turned on (cold engine) and runs continuously when the engine is running and for about 30 seconds after the engine is off. Thank you for the resolution and update Don!!
