  1. Amazing, never saw this type of battery for a car...Being a retired aircraft mechanic my only concern is what happen with the lithium battery on the Boeing Dreamliner....Keep us inform, how would like to know , on a long term, how satisfied you are! Thanks, J.P.
  2. Excellent information thanks a lot to both of you!!!! Giving me another thing to do this winter! My car is in storage starting the first of november ;-(
  3. Welcome! I really like when a discussion topic is closed with a solution to a problem...
  4. I've receive an answer from a PST2 sellers and specialist on Ebay, Mike, and here's his answer about this error message with the PST2.... "That error is because the URI hardware module does not have the porsche special firmware; the firmware needs to be updated. I would not worry about it, since you're better off testing resistance with a hand-held multimeter. Some users burned out or damaged the motherboards when they tried to test continuity on live circuits, and unlike the PIWIS testers, the PST2 does not have fuse protection."
  5. Thats really interesting and good to know! Can I ask exactly which one you had to replace spooltime or which one you suggest JFP ?..I'm guessing #28 on this parts cat? Thanks for the info
  6. Finally, I was able to figure out the breakout box wiring and I did the test of the internal multimeter" Voltage work fine but I always got an error with the resistance function....Any clue?
  7. At 90,000 miles Porsche recommend to replace the front differential oil. But the all wheel drive on 996 turbo got no controller as such. It is a viscous coupling. Viscous clutch on the parts catalog item#6. This viscous coupling is sealed and no maintenance is required....
  8. An interesting conversation we had! We can say that we are on the same wavelength, plus we love the same cars !!! Can you believe it, a French Canadian from Montreal and an American from New York discussing and understanding each other ... LOL !!! So many people can't get along these days ;-( Glad to have heard from you ... We will undoubtedly have the chance to discuss again on this forum ... Have a good weekend!
  9. Last week I tried an EGolf, I liked it despite the little autonomy and I have a friend who made me try his Chevrolet Bolt that he has owned since 2017 with more than 96,000 kilometers without any concerns since its acquisition ... Autonomy comparable to the Tesla but less expensive and I have a Chevrolet dealership near me ... But the technology evolves quickly and I remain patient ... Regarding maintenance , the guarantees are now eight years on certain models which brings me to 74 years LOL !!! I mustn't look too far away 😉 I don't know anything about Tesla maintenance but I love the model 3
  10. JFP has been around the Porsche forum since a long time and I must admit that every time he enters a conversation his answers are precise and very well documented .. "His mechanical experience is undeniable ... I am very humble in front of a person with so much knowledge .... He is high on my list of reliable person...Glad to know that he gave you a good helping hand! Cam timing, ouch... We hope we won't have to do it on our TT, Tooling is way too expensive! For the Mercedes I only got a Autel MD802. Got this car since 2014 and never had any problems with it...But I am looking for a replacemen
  11. Congratulations on this new family !! I am very happy for you!!! Every year (before covid) my wife and I drive to NYC just to walk on the street a couple of days. We love it! Indeed the streets are bad but I'm used to them because Montreal is not better 😉 A Q5 is a very good choice! I also cycle, but for fun ... I am approaching 8000 kilometers this year ... A way to get out of confinement by riding a bicycle !!! Loren is and always has been a huge help and he hasn't disappointed me again 😉 ... Speaking of new technology that's hard to troubleshoot, I have a 2010 Mercedes that just cost m
  12. Yes I purchase the box from this Ebay seller on your first post...Last week I did some research on different Bosch sites and unfortunately the KTS500 is now too old and there is no more support for it. Thanks for this breakout box link! I will contact the seller...What I wanted to do with the KTS was to test the internal function to see if the tool is working properly, the multimeter, ohmeter, voltmeter (called URI)... Previously I was working with a clone PST2 which is a Dell Latitude C610 (still have it) and the multimeter functions are not available with this laptop. Voltage or resistance r
  13. Thanks a lot for your reply! I bought the breakout box from this gentleman and I got the PDF of the KTS500 but nothing for the box itself.... I will start experiencing soon ;-) Winter is coming!!!
  14. Just received a breakout box with some leads to complete my set of 996 vintage tool 😉 I've been using a PST2 since 2008 with a lot of success. Especially for friends that are looking to buy a use 996 turbo or simple troubleshooting and keys reprogramming.... But I never used a breakout box before and it is difficult to found information about how to use this tool especially on Porsche. Would like to test the internal voltmeter/ohmeter (URI) of the Bosch KTS500....OBDII pinout, 16 ports on the breakout box ? 6 leads, + ground (black) red and blue wires etc....Is there, somewhere, printed info t
  15. Did you tried to tighten this line, may be it is loose....But, unfortunately I had this problem also. I have found the flare on this line damaged. I had to replace the line... Was not expensive but was difficult to replace....Part# 996-314-288-05, $14.01...
  16. This is really good to know thanks for sharing this fix!!!!
  17. Looking at this picture of an engine on the bench it can be the slave....
  18. Agree with JFP but on the second picture seems to come from higher up but the slave is on the other side....
  19. You will found some info here: https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/996-turbo-gt2/377709-what-part.html And if you look at the engine removal section of the repair manual page 1177 you will see the way to detach this line...
  20. Lower the engine about 4 inches and it is lot better!!! Floor jack under the engine block and 2 nuts 18mm on the rear engine mount...... Oups that is probably fix already, old post......
  21. Just realized you are the new member. Welcome to Renntech community!!! You got a heavily modified car, did you ever suspect the ECU reprogramming?
  22. This is what you don't want and it is related with camshaft housing grooves ;-( http://www.rennsportkc.com/996tt-top-end/
