Ugh, My daughter was just about to pull trigger on the Dynavin n6-pc Guess she should wait a little
Trans should be fine. An orig. 99 3.4 with 70k is a possible timebomb. Therefore it will not fetch too much $$ as is. What are your power goals? The car you have is non egas and the older DME. Swapping to a 3.6 or 3.8 is going to require a lot of mods. If you feel your current engine is solid, then a supercharger is probably your best bet. Goodluck.
Thanks, I have been looking for leaks. There is no staining on bottom of engine / transmission cases. Since getting the car in Feb I have put about 8500 miles on her with a lot of spirited backroad driving. This is equal to the same mileage the PO did over 3 yrs. I have noticed she burns about a qt in 2000 miles. The weird pressure behavior has mellowed out even when the oil level drops. It almost seems like new viscosity had more to do with it.

Hi all, I am looking for some one that has their own picture of a bad RMS or IMS still in the block. I am helping a buddy build a website and need a picture (and your approval to use) for it. As always thanks for the help!
Flyer007 replied to Flyer007's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Ok....never noticed such huge swings before. Makes me worried about drivng her hard in corners
Flyer007 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)So after my first DIY oil change I am still getting weird oil readings. Car is 1999 C2 Coupe 6-speed with about 9k on engine Today I did some more testing.... 1. Startup - no oil pressure for 1 second then up to 5 if cold 2. hot idle. 1.65 when warmed up at idle 3. level 4 at 3k rpm when hot 4. Hard accel. 1st gear fine.....2nd gear when comming throuhg 4500rpm it starts to dip. dips down to 2.75-3.25 before holding around 4 5. Sweepers: on both left and right sweepers 3rd gear 3k rpm......dips to 2.5 and bounces (very erratic needle) I have read about oil starvation in other threads but I have not found any info like mine above. Is this normal? TIA Ben
Flyer007 replied to Jabberwocky's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)any updates on this?
Flyer007 replied to digigo's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I second the pedal possibility. With the new pedals you probably did the type of heel/toe I do but by mistake. My alum pedals are such that I can have 90% of foot braking and engage 10% on the gas took blip throttle. My wife did this once in her car where she hit the brake and caught the gas and floored it plowing dirt with the front wheels. Check codes... but I bet if you watch your feet....it won't happen again
Looking for a p-car modified Eastwood roller to roll my rear fenders. Worth some beer to you if you have a tool. Thanks!
Thanks, I just added shy of another .5 qts and that seems to have brought it up to full. Now I hope it stops the preasure from dropping during hard cornering and hard acceleration! Depending on the position of the car when you drain the oil, the amount that drain's out can be as high as 10 quarts. I usually have to refill with 10 full quarts in my 99.
Ok, so I read the thread here on jacking her up and changing oil. Got the new filter, oil ring and crush washer. No problems with getting the car in air, draining and doing change. I put 8.5 US qts. of Mobil 1 0w-40 in then checked. Still showed low so went and put the rest of the .5 in for a total 9 qts. I went for a drive letting her warm up and everything seemed good. After letting car sit for 1hr I used the OBC to check oil level. It showed oil to be 4 marks below full (so 3 marks showing blank). Is it normal for it to take close to 10qts.? I ran her to work today and noticed oil drop on hard corners while keeping constant throttle. Is that normal for low oil level? What is the most you have seen put in after a oil change?
Flyer007 replied to f0urd0wn's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)How many miles? Most likely control arm bushings if over 75k miles.
Flyer007 replied to Jabberwocky's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)From my readings it seems a common cold start noise. Nothing to worry about if it goes away after a minute.
