hmmmm, friend of mine has the larger one in stock, offered it to me dirt cheap if i can fit it. it is longer, i will try it tonight and report back my findings. i hope it works because the summers here are often over 100 and the car has a hard time staying cool with the a/c on, seems like holding more coolant would help..., also because it is brand new and dirt cheap.
Would a996-106-157-03 fit in place of the 996-106-147-56 that my 99 996 C2 is supposed to have?
deanslist.us replied to deanslist.us's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I investigated more deeply and found a place that does paintless dent repair. They checked it out and said they can fix it no prob. $425
deanslist.us replied to jeveretts's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Could also be the clunky hesitant F1 gearbox that still isn't perfected in mass-produced cars. But for the sake of what this forum is about, Porsches have proven for decades that they can put the power down better. A friend of mine with a GT3 raced a Gallardo and a Z06 in an undisclosed area for about 25 miles, and donkey-stomped both of them....with less power than both of them.
deanslist.us posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Did a pretty complete search in the 996 section for this, and found nothing. I have a 1999 996 Carrera 2, blacker than night. I came out of a hotel in Vegas and find my hood wrinkled, looked like a 340 pound wrestler sat on it. Supposedly it isn't that noticeable to people unless I point it out, I suppose because it is black. So now I am faced with a dilemma, should I: 1. Replace it with a carbon fiber hood...since it is black, it should look pretty good. 2. Get the stock hood repaired (bondo?!?!) 3. Replace it with a new stock hood. If anyone thinks I should get a carbon fiber hood (which is what I am leaning towards) does anyone have any good info on what to look for in one, or better yet, where can I buy one that will fit my car correctly.
deanslist.us replied to deanslist.us's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I limped it for 1/4 mile back to the garage once I determined it wasn't catastrophic engine failure. Haven't driven it since. the car has had the secondary injection codes for some time, but the cel would only light once a month for a day or two. I think they were already in the history of the codes when i hooked up the diagnostic to it. I removed the coilpack from cyl. one and did find it cracked, and subsequently ordered 6 new coilpacks which are due to arrive via UPS from Sunset in Oregon any minute now....oh there's the bell at the front desk now.
deanslist.us replied to deanslist.us's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Are these are just for the sake of emissions? If so I don't think I am incredibly concerned with the dilution of CO.
deanslist.us posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)1999 C2 Coupe 3.4 stock motor/trans I just replaced all plugs last year. Here are the codes I got, and I think I am only worried about two of them: P0410 - sec air inj. P1411 - emissions related? P0301 - misfire cyl 1 P1313 - coil pack failure I understand that the misfire on cyl one is most likely due to the coil pack failure. My questions are: I don't think any of the coil packs have ever been replaced, is this a sign that the others are about to go? Is it correct that Cyl one is the rear most on the driver's side? What does a cracked/damaged coil pack look like, if there is any visible damage at all?
I can agree, when I jacked my car up from the engine for the first time (same way I used to jack up my 76 and 84 911's) the motor mount failed. I ordered new ones and it took about 30 minutes to replace both. The old ones were visibly destined to fail anyway, so I wasn't heartbroken. I don't use the engine to jack the car up anymore, just haven't had a reason to in the latest repair dealings.
deanslist.us replied to numbnuts's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Perhaps another valid point is whether you plan to do work on the car yourself or not. MKII 996 parts are significantly more expensive than MKI parts.
deanslist.us replied to The Hoth's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a problem with my speakers fading in and out. I have an aftermarket amp, and speakers. Could the amp be causing this as well?
deanslist.us replied to dr7966's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Non-Synthetic?!? Non-Mobil 1?!?! SINNER! Repent and change back to Mobil 1 15-50!!
deanslist.us replied to numbnuts's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I like the 996 MKI because it is the lightest of the 996's. Everything else about them really is all the same, little more power and creature comfort in the later ones. I would like to move up to a basic 997 S soon, I like the feeling of the raw power and the PASM.
deanslist.us replied to 99-996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)for mine? no, the scavenger pump ceasing up would end it..not loose spark plugs oh thank god
It is easier than I thought. There are only two wires, and if they are looped into many sections for the purpose of being wedged into the pads. you can pull them out of the pads and trace it back to where it is only two wires, snip it and connect those two wires with heat shrink, wire nut, whatever. do all four and the brake wear light will turn off. I just did this last weekend.
