Hi, I went to change my Serpentine belt with a 24mm socket and the ratchet is turning. I push it clockwise and instead of the Tension Roller moving, the nut is turning. Has anyone had this problem? I dont want to keep turn the nut as it may break something. I have change the belt 3 times now. This is the first time it has happened. Thanks for the help! 996 C4 with 138K miles
i think the purge value did the trick!!!! I have had no issues starting the car .....
Hugo, I got my purge value put in today. I will report if this fixes the issue.....
Hugo, I got my car back from the mechanic. He said the hard starting is from a solenoid purge valve not closing. It is right above the Alternator.... He ordered the part and will be here in the next couple of days....I will post if this fixes the issue....
Hey all, I have the same problem. Here is my story.... 1) brought my car to an Indy, they said it was a bad MAF sensor. Purchase new sensor but still having hard starts and P1130 and P1128 light. 2) Thinking Dealer would know the most about these cars, I brought my car to the them and they said it was a bad AOS..... I got it replaced at an the Indy (Dealer wanted 1900.00)....The hard starting came back with the check engine light..... 3) So now I am bringing the car back and bascially starting over.... Spending all this money and still cannot get to the bottom of it..... Oh I have a 1999 C4 with 104K miles

ultramens replied to ultramens's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks for the reply, from what the dealer said, they will charge 11 hours labor becuase they have to pull the engine and transmission out..... I got a quote from an Indy and they gave me a price of 1300. Is this a good price? what have others paid to get theirs done?
I brought my car to the dealer and they quoted me 1,890.00 to replace my AOS. I have a 1999 C4 Tip. Is this about right? How much should it cost??? Thanks
So i got a new MAF from pelican and installed it last week... well this morning, the codes came back.... The indy already did a smoke test and found no leaks... any other ideas on what it is? At this point, I dont even know if my original MAF was bad..... should I have taken the car to a Dealer and not an Indy? Thanks
Hey, just an update. Took it to the Indy and they said its the MAF... I placed an order and hope this fixes the problem....
Thanks for the reply. I hope the dealer will be able to tell me more as I do not want to start replacing parts and have the symptom remain. I have a small oil leak on the bottom of the car and it looks to be like the AOS... How much is it to replace the AOS? is it a DIY? Has your car stalled? I was pulling on of my drive way and the car stalled (its a tip)... it seemed like it was not getting the right amount of gas/air? I started it up again and it ran fine... Thanks for the help!
Hi, a couple weeks ago I reported that I had trouble starting my 1999 996 C4 (102,000 miles). The car would crank but would not turn over. It would only start if I pressed the gas pedal down. This does not have everytime I start the car. I would say 1/10 times. I was advise that I could have a block fuel injectors so I had the fuel system cleaning done. The car was fine for a couple of days and then it returned.... I did not get an codes during this time.... Just now, I got the following three codes: P0446 P1128 P1130 I have read the post regarding these and was wondering if their is a connection? Is it time to take the car to the dealer and let them figure it out? Could a block fuel line cause these codes? Thanks for the help.... Oh and I have already cleaned the thottle body and MAF......
ultramens replied to SpeedRacer350's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Any updates on this? i have the same starting problem....
ultramens replied to ultramens's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)hi, if the battery was dying would it not even crank? I mean I have had a dying battery before and it never did this... Also, I started the car just fine last night... it does not seem like its a consistent problem.... Any ideas????
ultramens replied to ultramens's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hi, how do you test the system? I dont see any lights on the dash, does this mean its to giving out any errors? No recent maintenance done on the car.... RPM looks stable.... Could it be the spark plugs?
