  1. Got under the shark and noticed that my trans pan was leaking ATF. Hand tightened and add more fluid. Now it engages nice and smooth.
  2. Got a 88 S4 auto trans and when I go from park to select any gear it tends to engage a little late and jerks. Once into gear it runs and drives smooth, no problems. Could in be that the linkage/cable needs some adjustments? Any ideas what could be the issue?
  3. Yeah, I'm going more for looks and I'll be keeping my stock 18's too. So, will I need to buy spacers for any clearance issues? I've been reading 7mm for the front and 15mm for the rear with extended bolts or can I just plug and play? If I need those spacers will it be ok with the tires sizes? I don't have the 997 TT wheels yet so I can't try them on.
  4. Loren thanks for the info. I did some #'s and it seems the 19" tire size diameter is at the 2% of original 18" front and 5% of the rear. Please correct me if I'm wrong. F18-225/40/18=25.09" R18-295/30/18=24.97" F19-235/35/19=25.48" R19-305/30/19=26.2" F18-25.09+2%(0.5018)=25.59" R18-24.97+5%(1.2485)=26.21" I just bought the 997 TT wheels and those were tires it came with, it has 90% tread left.
  5. Will I have problems using 997TT stock wheels & tires - Mich Pilot Sport PS2 - Front 235/35-19,- Rear 305/30-19 on my 03 996 TT? I've been reading about diff/viscous coupling problems using these sizes and some it's not a problem, plug and play. Some says no need for spacers and some do. So, what is the verdict? I don't track the car (no race track available), hardly ever get to use 6 gear (max speed limit 60), will never take long drives (around the island under 2 hours), and I drive it as a weekend car.
  6. Ok, I went to start it up after I drove it a week ago. Engine turns but won't start. I park on a slight slope. First, I switched the DME relay with my spare, no luck. Fuel pump fuse is good. Thought I needed more gas since I was low and on a slope. Filled up to 3/4, nothing still. So, then I was thinking fuel pump because the week I drove it, it felt a little slow responding when I gave it gas also it idled a little werid but closer to normal. Replaced fuel pump, nothing still. So, I tried my spare DME relay again, nothing. Then I got my brothers new DME relay, nothing. So, went out to get a new battery because the old one wouldn't hold its charge. Still nothing. Borrowed a good coil to see if it was that, a no go. Removed both sensors at flywheel, pretty dirty, cleaned and installed. No luck. Any ideas? I guess the next step would be to look at the DME harness contacts and DME unit. Was going to check the DME but got an offer for the car and sold it. It's going back to europe...on the hunt for another.
  7. Just an update: I'm glad I passed up the silver 05 turbo S because in fact it was just a normal turbo with the option PCCB. Not a real turbo S that has the X50 and PCCB.
  8. Exactly the reasons why I went with the X50. I do understand the rare part with the 05. All that aside, this X50 is sweet!!! Thanks for the production #'s of the turbos, I guess the world will never know.
  9. All in all, it's pretty much a turbo S then. I rather have the X50 engine instead of the PCCB not the other way around. I know it's not a real 05 since that was the only year of production for US. I guess the reasons I ask is that I passed up a silver 05 turbo S with 33k miles for $10,000 more then a black 03 turbo X50 with 39k miles. Here on the islands to see a real turbo s is hard to come by. This was the first I seen for sale here and the X50. These cars never pop up for sale unless going over seas. Did I make the wrong choice? My thinking was X50 same engine as turbo S just no pccb and $10k less.
  10. I was wondering if anyone knows how many X50's were made for the US. Are they pretty rare? I was reading somewhere that the 02-04 X50 was made for the US and in europe it's called the turbo S. Then in 05 they were sold as the turbo S in the US, everything the same as the X50 but with the upgraded brakes. Is that correct?
  11. I will check the ground. I think thats the problem but will pull light assembly also and check connection. Thanks
  12. 86 911-All signals work but driver front, parking light works when headlights on. Changed bulb still not working. Any ideas? Maybe relay/switch? Would really apperciate it. Thanks
  13. That's what I was thinking maybe a switch or fuse. Thanks everyone for the help. Aloha!
  14. That's weird. It was always able to adjust the temp and fan speed at different levels at the same time, it was great. Wondering....why would they put two controllers for the fan speeds if you couldn't individually control them like the temp? I thought that's why it's called two zone and two buttons to control temp and fan speed on either side. I wish it would good back.
  15. Yes, air speed but I was able to control air speed and temp on either side at different levels as a two zone. Now, its controlling as one. I have always been able to control either zone. Ex.-Driver 65temp 3bar air speed, Pass. 68temp 5 bar air speed. Any level or temp driver or pass. wants.Now, both same temp and air speed no matter which controls you use, driver or pass.
