jyoteen replied to vwrado's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)140,100 miles. 2003 C4s, original engine. Daily driver, Track car, etc. until 2012 where I bought a TDI diesel as a daily.
jyoteen started following Fuel Level Sender for 03 C4s Replacement DIY/Diagram?
I searched here and I seem to have the first indication of the Fuel level sender going. Got the fuel gauge dropping to zero, followed by warning light only for the gauge to spring back into action a few moments later. So I'm figuring at possibly coming to having to replace this if it persists. So I have a few questions: 1. Is there a diagram / procedure to do this oneself and can someone post it? 2. It is indicated via search that the Turbo needs to have the fuel sender calibration done by the dealer since the fuel tank is a saddle U shape due to AWD. Since the C4s probably has the same tank config, I'm guessing this is necessary on the C4s as well. If so, is this procedure do-able if one had access to the Durametric or some other non Porsche tool? If so, what is that procedure? Thanks!
your tires need to scrub in and shed the finishing coating on it. give it 500 or so miles
Odd. My 996 cats have the 02 sensor plug locations like it is in your 997 drawing. Did you switch the diagram label? I wonder if the shapes are the same (and length of the pipes) despite the 02 locations
Obviously I'm hoping this is a straight swap with OE996 o2 sensor location or at least the sensors being able to reach. Thanks!
jyoteen replied to swynn97's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I would promptly refinish the headlights and put a clear bra type product on it that shields it from UV. i had Premier clear bra guys refinish my headlight and do a cover. There are other pre-cut solutions available.
jyoteen replied to boldstep's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My car hit the track at 1100 miles on the odometer when new. It's my daily driver and my track whore for 8 years and 130k miles. I don't redline the car and abuse it, but I certainly don't baby it either
jyoteen replied to chomper129's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Ottos in Venice on Hampton drive. Talk to Daniel. Tell him I sent you.
jyoteen replied to doublesnaggle's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I've done multiple 1400 mile trips (once a year) up the coast. No issues. Keep some oil on you in case you need it. I bring 2 quarts. that's it.
Yes, they're all OEM. The first 3 times were covered under the emissions warranty and then I just got used OEM cats from rennlisters, etc. This time around though, unless someone has the OEM for sale for cheap, i'm really considering using a generic catalytic convertor due to to cost. I have until next year because of the CA smog check cycle. The car runs fine though but I have the rattle and the CEL currently, so I kow what it is. My theory also has to do with the crappy CA 91 octane though but that's just a guess on my part. I'm convinced that 91 isn't really enough (it's borderline). I realize that Porsche tests the cars with this octane, but any prolonged full throttle driving in hot conditions and the 91 octane can't be enough.
I have no idea. Everytime I go to the track, a week later, I hear the death rattle. And a CEL follows indicating catalytic failure. The honeycomb structure is not only cracked, but the heat generated has parts missing. Apparently, this isn't an unknown. My friend's 3.4 Spec 996 on the other hand (when required to run cats due to sound restrictions at Laguna) does not kill the catalytic converters. In fact, He's borrowed them off my car on one occasion. The only thing I can think of is that the car runs rich at full throttle, causing excessive heat to build up at the exhaust. I have 140k miles on the odometer now. "5 sets of cats"? I don't think we have replaced that many cats in total on all the cars we service combined over the years.......... What in the Hell are you doing (just out of curiosity)?
I wouldn't switch sides. I've gone through 5 sets of catalytic converters (140k miles) and the current set is bad. I'm about to take a spare bad set I have and have the cats welded off and a universal cat welded in place with disconnect clamps. Good luck!
I gather the part numbers are different, but how different are they if there is a difference. Will the 997 ones fit without alterations because they do look quite similar.
Sounds like the pressure plate 'fingers'. I just had that happen a month ago and was time for a new clutch as well
