  1. Last days I felt my car was not as strong as before...today I logged boost and saw almost 0,4bar below max boost....Also code p0299 is there...do i leak air from somewhere?Maybe wastegate rods are stuck?Opinions?
  2. Hello there guys...About two months ago I bought PET from PorscheLibrarian...Everything was ok, he was paid and send me the files...After about a week or so I ordered and paid POSES but he never got back to me...He did not answer my mails regarding this matter although he took my money...Loren tried to help (as always,thank you Loren) with no result...
  3. thank you again Loren for your time to answer me...the noise is for about half second...i thought of it this morning.It happened same time when i changed a coolant hose that was leaking (you might be aware that 997TT have a failure at pressurised coolant hoses near the thermostat assembly...)in order to change these hoses,oil filter base had to be removed.probably sealant had failed allowing air to enter oil filter housing after a few days...the noise is the same when we start the car after we ve changed filter for a second,until oil is pressurised again in filter...
  4. thank you loren...but what is your opinon on that matter?
  5. Hello there...i bought my car with 23500km...Previous owner used mobil1 0/40 until 20000km (he changer them at 7,14)and then replaced them with redline 5/40...i switched back to mobil at 26000km,two weeks ago...The problem is tha when i start the car after a few days of garage sitting it makes a horrible noise (probably from lifters?)such as there is no oil for about 1/3 of a second and then oil pressure goes up and the noise stops...engine is running fine...With redline this noise did not happen...any ideas? P.S. the car has almost no oil consumption...this happens only when car is parked f
  6. Thank you...but i believe that the leak starts from the left upper side of the engine...possibly from the front end that is not visible...any known hose that fails there?
  7. Hello there guys...Last month i saw a very small leakage of coolant located at upper left part of the engine...three days ago (just after exhaust installation) leakage got bigger...now the left part of the exhaust has spots of coolant...any ideas?
  8. Loren,if somebody becomes a contributing member,is there a way to download a service manual (pdf probably) for a 997TT?
  9. Hello there guys...I am about to give my spare set of front and rear brakes (disks and calipers) to a friend having a boxster 987,not S...Can they be installed?
  10. Thank you...Your explanation was perfect...
  11. loren,these ranges are car or rpm related?i mean does range 1 corresponds to same rpm range for e.g. a 997TT and 997Gt3?my car is 997TT tip and so there is no possibility to over rev it...i have range1,2 and 4 ignitions at range 3....How do you explain it?
  12. Hello there guys...I am experiencing some troubles with PSM...It flashes and code is 4206,front left speed sensor...I replaced it but the code is still there from time to time...any ideas?First sensor was "short circuited to ground" while second sensor was signal implausible...Is there a polarity to sensor connector?The car might run ok for 200miles and then suddenly PSM/ABS is on...Help please...
