  1. This was an easy job. This took an hour to complete and that included a trip to Autozone to get the special O2 Sensor wrench. The dealer wanted $900+ to do and they quoted 3 hrs to complete. It was tight and getting things to line up blind was a bit of a challenge. Any way after a quick 10 mile run with no CEL, I stopped at the Ferrari store where there are 2 F40's, 1 F50 ($1 mil) and an Enzo ($2 mil), there were of course, lesser 599's F430's and the like.
  2. I am looking for a procedure for replacing the after cat O2 sensors. Anyone out there have such a thing? Any help would be great before I go in blind. Thanks: James Greer, Boston MA
  3. looks like #1 will lower the engine and rotate about the trans bushing.Make sure the engine is supported if you have to take the nuts off. Watch for excess movement in the axles. Do not over stress the trans bushing either. Other than that, an easy DIY. Jim Greer
  4. Loren; Thanks for the response. Will hunt one done.
  5. Scanned the car with a durametric this weekend and got the following codes from the alarm tab 61 central locking limit; not reached, not present 33 internal sensor fault, not present 21 W lead (DME immobilizer not present) 49 K lead not present 60 central locking limit position (lock not reached, not present) 26 ignition circuit, passenger. I was unable to clear these codes. Anyone ever have them? 2001 996 C2 Any help here would be appreciated. Thanks: Jim Greer
  6. You can pull the sensor out of the brake pad and cut and tape the to leads together and short the circuit that way. This means you will have to visually inspect the brakes from time to time.
  7. You will need to get the bottom (undercarriage) of the car at least 2 ft off the ground. This is required to get the tranny down and out from under the car. I was up 30 inches to clear the tranny whilst it was on the tranny jack. I used 4 x 4 timbers 20 in long. Placed 2 in parallel, then 2 more on top at 90 deg and so on until the car was high enough. I toe nailed the timbers for stability. See attached .PDF. Each setup will support thousands of pounds and infinitely more stable than jack stands at the required height. Down side, took about an hour to get the car that high. Started at the front, raised the car, slid the 2 x 10 with the chocks under the wheels first, then the rear, put 2 x 10 and 1 level of timbers, back to the front, added 2 levels until completed. Has to be on a level surface. With the car that high, you can sit up underneath and work comfortably. You will also need a support for the engine, porsche sells a bar that bolts onto the drop link mounting points. I used a piece of unistrut and a couple of aluminum bars, worked fine. Good luck James Greer GUNNAGE.pdf
  8. What are you expecting 125 hp from 2.0 litre. It is not a strong car to begin with. Check timing, spark plugs/wires, rotor/distributor/coil and points and condenser if so equipped. Fuel pressure filters. Vacuum leaks. Air filter, MAF. I have an 87 924S @ 147 hp and 2.5 litre, and after driving the 911, that car feels like a tank. Hell, after driving the 2007 Taurus, that car still feels like a tank. Good Luck James Greer
  9. I noticed the oil pressure going from 5 bars to 2 bars at the Glen last week going around long sweeping high speed turns. This was with street tires with a 220 tread wear compound. Would like to go with a stickier tire but the oiling system will not keep up in it's present form. Porsche does not recommend stickier tires for the same reason. James Greer
  10. Anyone have the accusump kit installed in a 996? Where is the reservoir located, how is it working for you? Did you use the LN Engineering kit with the small filter? Thanks in advance. James Greer
  11. Hay kids: This track rocks, can't wait to go back. Had a total blast, enjoy the clip. Ciao
  12. Sounds like a throw out bearing. Has the clutch been changed lately, or at all? Is the force required to press on the clutch pedal changed? Good luck with the search. James Greer
  13. I had the same issue. It was the ballast resistor on the drivers side. I replaced them both. It will take about 2-3 hours. Clean out the radiators whilst you are in there. James Greer
  14. I have a 2001 with 95,400 miles, replaced the IMS bearing before it totally gave way. I recommend that the bearing be inspected, but you have to remove the tranny to do it, and if doable, a warranty. James Greer
