  1. It's been so long ago, I forgot I even did this.... As I recall, I had to take off passenger side air flow sensor and the intake pipe, the loosen the belt then a very tight space to get at the sensor. Sorry I don't remember more.
  2. Hi glen im having the oil pressure monitering failure warning in my 2008 cayenne.. how did u get at the sensor? Dealer wants 1100$ to replace it ... thanks ...  

  3. Thank you for the idea, it got me out of a bind and was $0 ...... Car was in at my local dealer last week and they saw the fix.... they were surprised when they saw it, but agreed it was better than spending $2k or so for the shaft replacement.... I have over 8K on the fix and sort of forgot about it....
  4. My 08S with 108k gave me the sudden banging Wednesday during acceleration... thought I ran over something, til it happened again.... Searching the internet.... driveshaft support! Put it into Special Terrain Mode and crawled under to check, yep, shaft loose.... Normal driving and there is no sign of anything being wrong, drove 50 miles home on Fwy before starting repairs.... I'm starting to think my trips to Yosemite are cursed!!! Last year, 1st trip, a coil pack failed (second one) about a half hour out of Fresno on a Saturday morning..... found a replacement and was back on r
  5. I just discovered that my failure in the thermostat might not be the thermostat but the wiper seal that's inside the thermostat housing. Information on some of the other forums got me to looking inside the thermostat housing and after a trip to the dealer looking at a new housing there is in fact a seal or wiper pressed into the thermostat housing that seals against the sleeve on the thermostat. The lip of the seal is totally gone on my housing and if I put in a new thermostat I would come up with the same problem again. Now it's time to find a replacement seal I'm going to try and find a PTFE
  6. Next step is to replace the O-rings on the coolant pipe in the rear of the Thermostat housing
  7. Finished installing pipes in thermostat housing.... One pipe installed and epoxy spread on inside of housing for second pipe... I used the radiator hoses to hold the pipes in the proper position while the epoxy cures. Spread epoxy on pipe before installation... Both pipes installed I'm quite happy with the results..... and saved $300++ Glen
  8. Yesterday I got the pipes & housing cleaned and ready to install pipes....
  9. Guess I'm going to epoxy the pipes back in, both were loose..... Glen Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  10. Great help! Thanks! Got into my '08S and found the pipe loose on the thermostat housing.... guess I'll try cleaning and using epoxy to reinstall.... the epoxy I use for golf clubs seems to work fairly well.... Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  11. Problem fixed!!! YEA!... Turned out to be the pressure sending unit... Once I reinstalled the working Durametric, I did a road test while monitoring Oil Temp, Oil Pressure and Oil Pressure sender voltages. All was normal until the oil temp rose above 80C then things started to happen. Very erratic pressures and voltages, and when RPM was near 1000, all pressure sending stopped at something around .360V and something under 600mbar..... thus the deduction of sending unit failure. Ordered the sending unit from the local Dealer (got a good price!!! :-) ) and about 3-hours of work I replaced i
  12. The problem is the new software version for the Cayenne has basically been bricked for diagnostic... there are no actual values output from the SDI4 V8 engine module... This should be simple OBDII data readout...
  13. Okay, found a copy of the Durametric software, and it works and reports actual values. The oil pressure is approximately 2300mbar at idle, 640RPM (oil temp 70C) and 4200mbar to 4400mbar at 2500RPM Oil pressure reading is a bit eratic as well as voltage for oil pressure. Again, the problem doesnt arise for a while... I'll have to take it on a test drive again with the monitor attached and watch/record the errors when they happen. From the surface, seems like the sending unit!
  14. Yea! I found a download on one of my other computers of .... It works!
