Made it back to Seattle ok. I guess theres nothing wrong! The only thing I noticed on the way back for about a mile the front end wanted to pull one way and then the other, it felt like the power was transferring from one wheel to the other instead of pulling together. Straight road, good pavement. Weird.
Took about a quart of coolant. Still frothy in the oil fill tube. That cant be good. But it has been in Washington, maybe it is all condensation. There is no froth on the dipstick.
So I just drove my 2000 C4 from Seattle to Reno. (it has 51000 miles on it) When I got to Reno I see oily stuff (like a baked on oil) on the front wheels, some on the rear wheels and all over the exhaust pipes. Under the engine is dry, under the radiators is dry. All dry, no puddle, no leaks. Check oil level and its a quart low. (Not too big of news, the RMS drips once and a while.) As I go to add my quart I pull the filler cap and there is the scary white froth from water mixing with oil there. I can see water droplets too. But the water looks clear not green. And the froth doesnt extend down the filler tube more than 2 inches. O ring looks god on the cap, perhaps carwash water is getting past the filler cap? Chk the coolant level and its vitually empty in the bottle. Havent put more in yet, dont know how low it is. Summary: Changed my oil in Seattle, maybe half a quart too high. Drove to Reno Weird residue on wheels and exhaust Oil quart low Coolant low Froth under filler cap Mild Negative Pressure under Oil cap Got to keep moving on my trip tomorrow morning. Help Please.

I bought one of these, really nice. These two tens hit really solid!!!!!! This guy is specializing in 996 boxes. He has some with 8's too. You can email him here if any of you are interested. firstname.lastname@example.org
You guys think this would sound good in my C4? http://cgi.ebay.com/Custom-Porsche-996-Fib...sspagenameZWDVW
2000 C4 It very clearly says PCM on the side. Part Numbers: 99664210502EFR 99664212200EFR 99664531100 And the Becker 6 Disc Changer
Its very much a PCM 1 .its non most and will install in any car pre 03.
How much is my old PCM Nav worth? I think I should sell it?? What do these things go for? Do people sell them complete like this? http://picasaweb.google.com/acneil/Nav
acneil replied to byrannewell's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I just installed a LC7 from Audio Control, it gives you the Aux in works perfect. Unfortunately neither Becker nor Seimens provides such a piece for the PCM head unit. I have found a site (http://www.mictronics/?page=becker) that has a DIY connector piece that involves ATmega8 circuit boards, and the like. I, however, am quite ignorant on the subject. If anyone knows anything about circuit boards, could you take a look at this and see how difficult it might be, and the steps involved? The entire problem with connecting a PCM stereo is the Sony Unilink architechture. It is very uncooperative by design.
It was in the trunk on the passenger side behind the interior wall. ;(
Nada, Ill have to check this list, but I thought in order to get the 6 speakers you get an amp too. Thanks for the tips guys.
2000 C4 with 6 Speakers and a OEM Nav. Amp is unknown. Stripping out all the speakers, (and oem amp) replacing them with all memphis and a M3 Sub, adding a Memphis Belle 5 channel and a Processor like a Clean Sweep or one from Audio Control but keeping the stock Nav. Think the sound quality will be ok? I dont need competition, just better than what I have. Mostly Im worried about the voltages and quality coming from the Nav.
I am having a hard time finding my oem amp on my 2000 C4. It has 6 speakers and the OEM Nav, (pcm1 or 2 how can I tell?) but I have torn apart the trunk and there is no amp in there. Where could it be? Perhaps there isnt one?
