ssp996 replied to ssp996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Came back from dealer yesterday, they couldn't reproduce. Ran fine yesterday. Stranded today. Fired up this morning, went to son's soccer game and then wouldn't fire again. Found TSB on "difficulty fueling" or "running out of fuel" on rennlist. It recommends tie straps on the flexible fuel hoses in the fuel tank. But I called the Indy instead and he thinks its a bad crank sensor. Any ideas. When I first turn the key to the 1st position, I hear the pump priming.
ssp996 replied to ssp996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Fuel reserve light had just turned on. Usually have another 30 miles when it lights up. AAA added 2 gallons just in case but still, engine wouldn't stay on. Dealer just called and they can't reproduce. they said its maybe the fuel relay but unsure. It started right up for them this AM. They are going to drive it more and report. any test they can do to fuel pump?
ssp996 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)It cranks and fires up roughly for a second or so and stalls. any clues? fuel pump, MAF, coils? It ran very well on the way to do errands. Got back on car after 5 minute stop and wouldn't fire up as described. on flatbed to dealer
ssp996 replied to britdave's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)My original Moll battery on my 01 996 lasted 9yrs. Just replaced in April. Car is daily driver Mon-Fri. If car sits unused for extended periods of time, the batteries will drain and not fully recharge, even on extended drives. Also, I have read somewhere that if you don't lock the car doors routinely, there is more electrical drain that occurs than if car is fully locked. Don't know how true this is
ssp996 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)This morning on my way to grocery store, smelled something unusual and I looked on rear view mirror and saw a small vapor-like plume of smoke rising through the vents of the spoiler. Looked at the temp gauge and it seemed that it was hotter than usual for just being 2 miles from my house. decided to drive back home and call a flatbed. when I got home, the car was kind of hot, beyond the usual middle of the gauge, but no red blinking light, and the car was still running fine. towed to dealership and they have had it all day. they can't reproduce or see any leaks or loss of coolant pressure. they will call me later after they test again. I thought initially that the water pump may be failing since its the original on a 116k mile'01 911. kind of perplexed. any clues from the forum? thanks
Is there an upgrade available from Porsche for the Ims bolt and cap, (not the bearing), and does it help reinforce ims?
ssp996 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)the horn sounds anemic, like its half blown. any ideas, or how easy to replace or fix. '01 996 c2 manual
ssp996 replied to gswc32's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Michelin pilot sport2, non N. I get 27k on the rear consistently. Just got 3rd pair, car now has 112k. mine is an '01, so its the 265x35x18. newer 996 use wider rear tire which i dont know how the PS2 michelin will perform on mileage. the N tire last a lot less.
ssp996 replied to jrthe1's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Once the tranny is out, they can check how much wear there is on the clutch plate. Have them measure it and then decide. My clutch is still the original at 108k.
noticed big puddle in front this morning. I used the wiper fluid wash for the litronics last night. while driving. Noticed big puddle in garage this morning. Filled tank again and its leaking near where front center radiator would be. turned lights on and turned spray on again, and the leak is more exagerated. Any hints as to what could be? Broken hose? Fix?
M030 euro sports suspension kit -part number for an '01 996 C2 coupe?
Just figured out that all of these brackets are interchangeable, that being the reason why they have 2 nuts, one in front and back. So by moving this bracket to the opposite side and across, the nut that is used is still ok for part D to fit over it and be bolted on. But it also means that I will be able to use it only on that side. Did call sunset and they said they can order all four brackets, and I would then buy one from them. Part # is 996 801 509 00 at $43 each. thanks anyways loren
Loren, its not on that diagram, because its not on the car itself. The bracket i'm describing came with the Porsche roof rack. It is a metal rectangular bracket that one must first screw/attach the the roof of the car (by opening that little door on the roof). There are 4 of them, specific for each corner. One then proceeds to attach/screw the roof rack itself, to it. The bracket has a screw that goes on the roof, and also has 2 nuts that receive the roof rack's bolt. Thanks
