RFM started following Vacuum hoses plugged up, what goes where and what’s missing, Problem when changing the oil on my 1999 996, Soaking wet pollen filter and and 7 others
This is the oil by-pass valve and should be on the bottom of the canister, since you quote that a breakage has occurred, the entire unit must be replaced.
In my opinion it has something to do with the thrust bearing, have this checked by a mechanic to be sure.
Electronics have nothing to do with higher crank speed, only a compression problem or the use of a starting aid powered with higher than the usual 12/14 volt can cause this phenomenon IMO. In that case you have a serious problem with the electronic components, at least i hope not.
This is normal Cayenne behavior, once the key has been brought into crank position it can be released, either the engine starts immediately or the starter motor will stop on a timer (appr. 5-6 sec.) without holding the key. A faster starting speed on engines in good condition, indicates compression loss in general, after a longer standstill as 6 month and more, valve pollution is usually the cause. This can not always be determined with a compression measurement, a cylinder leak test is more appropriate.
RFM replied to elgin's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)For LHD cars: yes, passenger side towards the middle at the top.
It may be that the original engine is changed for some reason, the Euro cars, if i remember correctly, had only just one sensor on one camshaft. In this case it would therefore be normal that you can't find any wiring. Give the VIN and engine #, someone on the forum can compare the numbers for matching.
Interesting, thanks for the pics and explanation, i have no experience with it but it seems that this has to do with it, remains the question what is the cause of the faulty transistor? Good job, please keep us posted.
Probably the venting of the front differential, the transfer case and rear diff. should also have one.
Looks like the aeration of the gearbox which must prevent water penetrating when wading through water puddles, the rubber gut may be raised a little higher and is not closed as you say, air pressure can still escape from the gearbox.
RFM replied to Ahsai's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I think you need the following parts: 999 073 062 02 Tapping screw 4,8x19. Hope it helps.
RFM replied to Harness's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Check whether the alternator is equipped with a freewheel pulley, when it is jammed such a symptom can also occur.
