  1. My path forward is to have the a pair of used turbo's that were purchased off Ebay for $200 rebuilt. The two Southern California local turbo shop I've talked with were Comp Turbo Technology gave me a rebuild quote of $399 and Pure Turbos rebuild estimate was $450. The best price for new turbos I could find were approx $1800 each. If you can repair and have the turbos rebuilt to factory specification there a huge cost savings.

  2. I had a similar problem with Mercedes, it only had only one plug to work with - you can use a fluid extractor to pump out and add your fluid back into the differential. I used a Astro Pneumatic extractor and it great for all types of fluid removal or fluid replenishment projects.
  3. I validated the part numbers for check valve and the turbo ventilation line number has changed. Have you had any experience removing the turbo's for rebuild?
  4. thanks clarksongli I really want to avoid the turbo bearing replacement option. The problem is just to much oil is getting into the turbo. I going to remove and inspect the vent line (PN 94810721651), check valve (PN 94810721750) very closely.
  5. I will check the intercooler hose for present of oil build up later this week. I wondering why the dealer did not report that the intercooler hose could be a potential problem. If the intercooler hose is the problem, that would be an excellent fix..
  6. I recently had my 2004 CTT in the dealer to track down an oil leak from the front left corner of the cayenne, the dealer indicated the oil leak conditions could stemmed from either the left turbo or a faulty oil seperator (located in the valve cover). I've already replace my oil seperator 2 1/2 years ago and no smoke has been observed when the turbo's kick in. Therefore, it looks like my left turbo is leaking and needs to be replaced. My plan is to remove the left turbo and have it rebuild for under $500 vs. a new OEM turbo for $1900. My question to forum is, can the turbocharger be replace without removing the engine from vehicle? Is it a DIY project or should I take it to a shop for the remove and replace?
  7. I had a similar event when replaced my water pump on my turbo. I would suggest using a diagnostic tool such as durametric and clear any error codes. The EMU recongizes when any sensors have been disconnected and records then as an errors. By clearing the error codes should resolve the problem. RICK
  8. I found the OEM outer tie rod ends ($60 each) for my CTT without any problems online. However, I wanted to get the correct ball joint puller listed in the Porsche repair manual because of the large ball joint size and standard off the shelve puller just don't fit. Porsche tool number T10187 made by Kukku can be found at Porsche specialty tool sites online for $230 . I was able to located the same tool number being used by VW and I purchased the ball joint puller from Snapon/ VW Tool and Equipment Program at less than half price. It pretty easy remove and replace tie rod ends, its just a matter of counting how many thread turns to remove the tie rod end and reversing the process to attach the new part. Thanks for all the advice Rick
  9. I'm about to replace the ball joints on my 04 Cayenne Turbo. The Question is if its necessary to do a front end alignment after the ball joint end replacement?
  10. Does anyone have the the torques settings for installing a front suspension lower control arm for a 04 cayenne turbo? Thanks :wrench:
  11. I recently purchased an 04 Cayenne Turbo and two weeks ago had an oil change at my local Porsche Dealer. The service adviser informed me that the vehicle inspection detected a oil leak located in the oil separator located in Bank 2 (5-8). It appears that the oil separator is integral with the camshaft cover and the leak causes excessive oil consumption. I decided to do the repair myself and purchased the camshaft cover at a considerable discount than the dealer quoted. It appears to be a straight forward part replacement. However, before starting the project I would like to make sure that fully understand the part replacement process. Has anyone had experience replacing the cover? Are there any factory repair instruction available, special tools or precaution that need to be observed?
  12. My 04 Cayenne TurboI have 22 inch TechArt Wheels but I'm unsure of the lug nut torque value. The Cayenne Manual indicates that the OEM wheel and lug nut torque value is 118ft/lb. Would the lug nut torque value be any different for aftermarket TechArt wheels?
  13. the good news is the clutch replacement cost were for the parts only since my extended warrenty covered my RMS.
