  1. Johnny, I forgot to ask, what car/cars, are you driving/racing/working on? As a former owner, I can tell you that I still keep a replaced, expensive, oil sump pump, and two older sealed timing chain tensioners from my 911sc on my workbench in the garage. Not driving a Porsche right now, but like to keep my fingers in the pie, so to speak. Sold that one at about 325k miles. Sold my C4$ at 16 years old. My issue was getting an old body in and out of the car. Still enjoy Loren, Jeff, and other folks on Renntech. Cheers, j
  2. Agreed here as well. If I still owned my C4$ that’s just what I would do.
  3. Doesn’t that approach risk catastrophic engine failure? Would it be better to just replace engine?
  4. Yes, and no telling what else is screwed up. Sorry that you’re in this predicament. No good answers.
  5. If you are concerned re IMS issue, get the LN solution installed and forget about it. Good luck..,
  6. Mark, there you go...one of the pros has stepped up to the plate. As suspected, your next stop to fix this issue is your local friendly stealership. Again, good luck.
  7. You might need help from the stealership on this one. Might take a piwis to reprogram everything. Best I can say. Others here will likely jump in. Good luck.
  8. Never asked, is your car a 6-speed or automatic? Might make a little diff re ability to drive. I obsessed over under slightest noise from seat motors, fearing that if seat got stuck I might not be able to push on clutch.
  9. I recall loosening the bolts to be able to lift the seat to get to that screw drive and lube it. Then just crawled in from the rear floor to do as taking out the bolts was such a pita. But if the seat doesn’t go forward and back I think your done. I recall the seat motors under there. But if the seat doesn’t move at all it’s likely a trip to the stealership. Problem is how to drive the car. Could you possibly, just to drive to the shop, fasten a “booster” seat using the seatbelts. Right, like a baby booster seat. Temporary only of course.
  10. Yep, ignorance is bliss. my recollection is you cannot manually adjust the powered seats. I remember the procedure for lubing the forward/back screw-like drive, but don’t recall ever reading about any manual adjustment. good luck.
  11. If it’s a Porsche, it’s not cheap to properly maintain. But regular or early maintaining pays off in the long-run. Carrera4$, as we say.
  12. Great pic. Remember the old 911sc, actually had, I think it was called, “mechanical linkage.” This was back in the day before e-gas. Sucks to get old, my friends.
  13. There you go... “the man” has spoken. Cool, Jeff. Right on the money. I remember that my RedLine was engine oil. Everything was only oem Porsche.
  14. I always used Redline, but never had the issue you are experiencing. Are you “speed shifting” it? My issue was missing the shift from 2nd to 3rd when I “speed shifted” which has never been a Porsche thing. Smooth shift motion, then never an issue. Not sure if this helps you. Hope your issue is not the synchro or throw-out bearing. That’s one reason it’s a C4$.... Good luck.
  15. Greetings Simon. i don’t think the self locking can be disabled. Others might have better information. Where are you in the UK? I was at Merton College at Oxford. We miss riding the bus into London and taking the tube everywhere. Cheers, j
  16. My memory is the car will attempt to lock itself. Leaving front up could trigger alarm. Also, after about a week locked, door will only open with key, and alarm will go off. Why don’t you back car into garage? Also, get a trickle charger that plugs into cigarette lighter, leaving window slightly open for cord to go through. Lighter is not switched, and saves you trouble of connecting charger to battery. Good luck.
  17. I don’t really have a knowledgeable answer. But there are some skilled folks on the forum who might. good luck
  18. There is just too much on this to cover quickly in one answer. As Loren would say, “the search engine is your friend.” that said, my similar problem was caused by the wiring to the switch on very top of gas tank. You have to go down to it by pulling off everything above it, like the battery tray, etc. Took a few hours to get there, then 5 min to reconnect wires and remove nest of the mice that has chewed wires apart. there could be other solutions. Search away. Have fun. Good luck.
  19. And I recall that Porsche part numbers often change for update designation to the same part. I remember this from the radiator coolant tank cap and other part numbers as well.
  20. Agreed. A trip to your local stealership seems to be on the horizon. Good luck.
