Hi Guys, Normally, when you fill up on gas with a credit card, you would just let the gas run until it stops itself. That means that the car is full and you're good to go right? Not on my 997.2. The nozzle would occasionally stop it self at about 1 mark away from full, 3/4 full, or sometimes even 1/2 full... it's kind of random. What's irritating is that it is random. Sometimes it will go all the way full and sometimes it doesn't. So what I have been coping with (because i don't have time to take it to the dealer yet) is when i feel that it stops early, i would turn the ignition to the on position to see where the gas is and if it's not full, I would get out of the car to reset the auto fill lever. It's kind of comical to watch actually: I set the autofill lever and get in the car to wait for the nozzle to shut itself. Then I check the gas gauge. If there's not enough gas, I would get out of the car and set autofill lever again. Then I get back in the car and wait for the nozzle to shut off to check the gas gauge. This process sometimes get repeated quite a few times until I get a full tank :cursing: If our tanks wasn't so small I would just say the heck with it... but I usually run out of gas in about 3-4 days on a full tank. What should I do? Has anyone else encountered this on their car? TIA for the inputs -Tri
sigh... another needless trip to the dealer... i'll steer clear of the GT3's this time...
Being that this is a 997.2 forum... i believe the plastic filter housing is a 36mm. i bought a 36mm axle socket at my local pep boys for $9 and it works like a charm with my torque wrench.
Thanks for the instructions... I did my first oil change last week... it feels awesome to work on my own car again. I feel like I'm back in high school!
Thank you for the detailed instructions.
