2Fast996 replied to 2Fast996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)But I'm covered by GEICO!! No caveman style allowed here
2Fast996 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Intermittently over the past couple of months the remote would fail to lock and/or unlock the doors leaving me to do so manually. The key otherwise worked the ignition normally. Today, the key remote would not longer lock nor unlock the doors at which time I noticed the light on the remote not blinking upon pressing the button. After changing the battery I remain with a remote that does not lock nor unlock the doors however, works the ignition normally. Upon pressing the button to lock/unlock I see one blink of the red light. If my memory serves me correctly there used to be a very fast continuous blink of the red light while depressing the button. I am out of town with the car and only one key for a lengthy period of time so I have no way of verifying with the other key. Any input? I have searched and reviewed until my eyes hurt. Perhaps I have missed something.
2Fast996 replied to Pepi1677's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)The change at or near 3000 rpm has been explained to me as the variocam system.
Rear of engine is toward the front of the car. Front of engine is staring at you when you lift the engine cover. Do some searching on here and you will find some posts with pics and much, much more information than I am capable of describing.
A board member and now my new best friend :D helped me tackle this project. As I was under the dash I was able to get a 10mm box end wrench around the head of the bolt which is on top and I had Chuck hold pressure reaching through the vent hole so I could get the nut started and then tighten with a 1/4" drive from the bottom. Pelican has the steering lock mechanism for $138. I was able to negotiate $120 from a dealer. I needed the part "now" as I am out of town with the key stuck in the ignition and no garage. The entire job took 3 hrs 45 min with some time for cussin and bitchin.
I am currently mobilized to Augusta, GA and am due for a brake fluid change. Anyone in the area with a Motive Power Bleeder feel like assisting me with this project??? :rolleyes: I'll provide the beer for our human consumption and the ATE fluid for my girl Send a PM as I will get it quicker
2Fast996 replied to 500's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Have you checked the tire pressures? I have noticed the same symptoms if there is a 1psi difference between the rears.
2Fast996 replied to 2Fast996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks Loren :renntech:
2Fast996 replied to raloise's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a MY03 Targa with 56,500 miles and love the car. The main reason I chose the Targa was for the rear hatch making the back area much more accessible. I have not experienced any leaks however, do have a slight "rattle" when driving on rough surfaces. There is a TSB on this condition so you might want to check if it has been performed on the car you are considering. Forgor to mention; as far as I have found there is no roof bike rack for the Targa :(
I have done multiple searches and can not find the images for a rear bumper cover removal. :o Can someone point me in the right direction?
2Fast996 replied to ultramens's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I will be changing my spark plugs this week as routine maintenance. Am I correct in assuming that my coil packs are OK if I am getting no CEL and there are no cracks? I am currently at 56,500 miles. How long should they last or do they usually last? Anything else I should consider while in the area?
2Fast996 replied to splitwindow's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Has anyone experienced any loss of torque and/or power due to this? I am considering this only as an inexpensive "sound" mod rather than a gain in power. I am concerned however, at the thought of messing around with the physics of the exhaust on this auto. Knowledgable replies appreciated.
2Fast996 replied to splitwindow's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Am I correct in assuming that the picture on the left is the type I mod while the picture on the right is the type II mod?
2Fast996 replied to bolobar's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have been happy with the Michelin Pilot Sport II although they do get quite loud toward the end of their life.
