  1. UPDATE - went to a different smog testing station - this time with a Tech who took good care and seemed to know what he was doing - and passed with no problems. Thanks for the help.
  2. My apologies, the reason given for the car not passing was OBDII COMMUNICATION failure. They could not get their machine to read the OBD on my car, something like a bad connection. When I got home and used my duramteric, it was fine, no codes or problems at all noted with the emissions systems.
  3. 2001 C2 with 95K miles here in Illinois. Brought it in for the required emissions test to the same facility as a few times in the past. Technican had hard time finding the OBD port (seemed inexperienced) and then spent a lot of time messing around with the connector to get the machine to read my car. Finally was told the car failed due to OBDII failure. "Take it to a repair shop and come back." Came home and grabbed my hand held scanner, plugged it in, scanned - no problem. No codes, MIL off, all sensors ready. Then plugged in my duramteric and spent the next 15 minutes playing with it, trending date, checking for codes, looking at all the modules. No problems except I have a code on the airbag indicating low voltage but the airbag light is off (subject for another post). Unless someone has run into this before I am thinking of heading to a different test station and see what happens. You only get three chances before having to jump through a pile of hoops though.
  4. Please help with lost code: 2001 C2 CDR-220 Type 4462 sn Y5048416
  5. I guess it depends on where they are stuck. They glue to the back of the pads so the putty knife should separate them there. If the round pieces are stuck in the caliper, as happened to me, it took a quite a combination of penetrant, and claws, pry bars etc to finally get one of them out. No real trick that I found just kept trying.
  6. I put tape around the magnetic number on my hood to keep from blowing off. At the end of the DE weekend I pulled the electrical tape off and a 3" strip of clear coat came off with the tape. Is there any hope of feathering this out then sanding and rattle can spraying clear coat on the hood with decent results or is this a complete repaint? 2001 C2 Seal Gray
  7. Just replaced mine using the instructions in the manual - pretty easy. Here is what I ordered: 999-631-140-90-M97 Position (Parking) Light Bulb Inside Xenon Headlamp, 12V - 6W (H6W), Longlife, 996 Carrera 2/4 (1999-04), 996 Turbo (2001-05), Each Brand: Osram-Sylvania
  8. Heck, buy your own lift, here is one: :) http://www.maxjaxusa.com/index.html
  9. Regarding the MAF Sensor, you can get an original equipment (Bosch) one from someone like Pelican parts at a fraction of the cost of the Bosch sensor in a Porsche box.
  10. Brakes, clutch (soon), maf sensor, code troubleshooting, wheels, ims bearing, rms, no bull advice, wine... This is the best.
  11. I get a similar sound on a much narrower band of about 67 to 69mph. I attribute it to mostly worn out Pirelli Pzeros and was going to wait and see what it was like after new rubber. Or maybe it's just our fine Chicago area highways....
