did his first Ironman Triathlon and is now recovering.
Hey Folks, Thanks for helping me on my issues. I went to Advanced and they read my faults. It was P1124 and P1126. He went ahead and erased the codes, so I guess I will wait to see if they come on again. Can you all tell me what those mean. I took my air filter back out again and made sure I re-installed, being more careful. I also checked all fluids and noticed that my coolant was low and topped that off. I opened and closed my gas cap, checked oil level again as well as hydraulic fluid level and everything seems fine. So let me know what you all think I should check as I wait and see if it comes back on. Thanks in advance, C.
Thanks for your answer. I re-plugged it once after the new filter was installed. I checked it after the light came on but it is still on. Thanks for the suggestion.
Hello, 1999 Carrera 2 tiptronic. I was wondering if I was was supposed to reset something or what I might have done to get my check engine light on. I changed the oil, brake pads, air filter and within 100 miles, my car check engine light came on. Does anyone know why that might be so. When changing the air filter, I did unplug a sensor on the body of the air filter box. Any suggestions would be helpful. Lastly my hydrolic fluid resevoir seems low but I don't know what the factory calls for. Could someone tell me or point me in the direction to find out? Thanks C
Thanks for that help. I tried 4 different stores to get a screw extractor and found it at the last one. I stripped out the drain plug so bad, the extractor would not fit. So I resorted to using my dremmel (as described in one of the posts) and was able to make a large screw driver fit a cut I made. All in all it took me 3 hours. I finished my last triathlon faster than that! I really needed that information on screw extraction so huge thanks. If anyone would like to see how I took the roof transport system brackets, had them modified to accept a Yakima rack system, just let me know. C.
Got it, thanks for the help. C.
Hello all, Do you folks know where I can get the instructions on how to install the RTS? C.
I decided to mod the current 3.4 mufflers and they sound fantastic. Excellent sound when on the throttle and no droning. Sounds just as good as my MY95. Cost for the tubing from Classic Tube $31.72 and the labor for welding $60. I went with the MK1 mod on the 3.4 mufflers instead of after market exhaust not only because of the price but I heard people who switched back to stock or the MK1 mod because of droning. If I suffer an internal failure then I guess I have to find a solution. As of now I have spent basically nothing for a great sound. Thanks for all the support in helping me do this modification. Also thanks for running a great site as I got the info on how to place my car on jackstands on here as well. Though I did not need to take all the tires off, I had them painted black at the same time as the muffler mod. It was much easier to install the mufflers after they were modified with the wheels off. Lastly I also got the Ft lbs I needed to tighten my wheels up to, 96lbs. RennTech.org, a great resource for those that care about their Porsche.
The car only has 35k miles. What kind of internal failure did it have?
part numbers are 996 111 132.51 and 996 111 131.51 Thanks for the help On another topic. Can I make a donation for someone who is not a contributing member and make them a contributing member? Djomlas did some nice photoshop work for me "gratis" and maybe I can pay him back. I think other people are asking him for his services. Maybe he could do it for contributions to the site. Camores
