maybe you should take your old tires out on the track day before replacing them? sometimes having a tire with a lower amount of grip is better/safer/cheaper for beginners
i'm hoping this wil fix my engine woes, can anyone show me a picture of the IAC valve so i can know what i'm looking for?
I looked at your profile. A MY99 C2 is not egas so you have an idle control valve. Chances are this needs cleaning or the solenoid is bad and it needs replacing. Either way you should remove it clean it (and the throttle body while you are there). This process has been documented here many times so please do a search if you need details thanks for the tips loren, i found how-tos of the throttle body cleaning but i cant seem to locate insturctions on how to get to the idle control valve. can anyone help me out?
how did u know it was a 99?!? =O its a C2
usdmej posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)whats up fellows, up until now my 996 has been nothing but reliable. but recently when i start it up in the morning the idle will go up and down until the engine warms up. after that all is fine. is this something that should be expected? ive got no cels or anything like that
usdmej replied to rrspikemarty's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)notice how the tire looks darker (less road debris embedded on it) on the outside compared to the inside. that means it's not contacting the road nearly as much as the inside tire is. expect the inner portion to wear away first, which is normal with p-cars unfortunately
usdmej replied to twiins's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)check your owners manual, there is a minimum engine RPM you're advised to upshift at. it's pretty high for first gear (close to 3000rpm i believe) because it's so long. but beyond that it's really driver preference
man i love that spoiler!!! more pics please!!!
sweet, is the console made out of plastic? any special steps needed to prep? i know www.bumperplugs.com claims a 14 step process they take to paint their consoles =X
hi folks, i bought a new lip front and rear for my 996 C2 aerokit, i'm going to have it painted soon, i was wondering since i've seen body colored center armest consoles out there, can i just have the paintshop paint mine too? or are the pre-painted ones made out of a different material? tiy
usdmej replied to gswc32's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)wow, you sure that wasn't a salesman that gave you that "advice"? so much for responsible fun = /
usdmej replied to whs's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)well, hopefully there was no water in the key when u pressed it. if there was, you coudl have shorted the circuits and now need a new key. coincidentally i washed my volvo key last weekend, i didnt press any buttons, just opened it up and let it air dry. been using my spare key since never got around to putting it back together.
usdmej replied to AgeRebel's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)i've called 3 dealers in LA and all 3 gave the same confidentiality story. Tool Pants would you mind finidng out the info for me if i gave you my VIN? i wouldnt mind paying your somethign for your help
this is great news! are the plastic rivets bolt on? or do they require a special tool to install the lip? also OT, Loren have you ever been stumped by a question on this board =X
my dad pulled out of the garage at a not so optimal angle and scraped up the lower lip pretty bad, then he told me later on the freeway it broke off and he ran over it -_____- do they sell just the Lower Spoiler part of it? where can i find it? i'm thinking about buying a couple and painting them flat black in the meantime so i can help him drive the car better.
