I hate to hear about the 05's having trouble, I wonder if they will sell me an extended warranty? Turns out my problem was an air/oil seperator... as I had it changed and it has not smoked since. There was oil in the intake, which was a big clue. As the AOS sits above the motor on the top-left, the oil was getting into the intake on the left side, making the left tailpipe pour the smoke. I am wondering if there is anything I can do to keep the motor in top shape, as many of these posts seem to be down on the '05 C2S? Thanks again, all.
Smoke only comes from the left exhaust... cranked for the first time in a week last night and the smoke was more white, but thick. car runs great, just smokes like heck. I towed it to the shop today. What in your opinion could it be?
What engine size is this? 3.6 or 3.8l? This can be the Air-Oil seperator as well as a problem with the cylinder walls being scored. This would require a Bore- scope to inspect the walls. Pull codes with a generic scanner if possible. Did your check engine light start blinking when the rough idle occurred? S.Vizcarra Porsche MeisterTech http://meistertech.blogspot.com/ 3.8L, Smokes on start up and when a load is put on the motor, large amount of smoke... I am scared to crank it as I do not want to do more damage. The check engine light did pop on but never blinked. I cleaned the throttle body and I think I have fixed the rough idle.
When the smoke first started it was at start up only... I cleaned the throttle body and I think I fixed the rough idle. I cranked it up and a large billow of smoke puffed (blue smoke) but stopped at idle. As soon as I drove it (put some load on the motor) it smoked every time (like at a stoplight take off) so I have parked it until I can get it fixed. Is it a 3.8 L C2S... The check engine never blinked, just popped on and stayed lit.
Help! I have a 2005 911 C2S with 64k miles and suddenly had a rough idle at a stoplight. no check engine light. parked it for a week, cranked it up and large puff of blue smoke, still rough idle. Any ideas on what it could be? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I've had the car 2 weeks and no oil on my garage floor at all. Maybe I am not aware of the "hot" smell, but my boxster did not have a smell like this (but did not operate like this either :)
Sorry, A 997-1 C2S with 60k miles.
After "spirited" driving I smell a burnt oil-like smell fom the motor area... Is this normal? It is not leaking any oil, just the burning smell. I am pretty sure it is not a tire smell although they are similar! Any thoughts?
Bradgt123 replied to Bradgt123's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thanks, Did you remove the lower leather seat?
Bradgt123 replied to Bradgt123's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)36lbs, 36 inches, A booster uses the original seatbelt as the restraint. I am looking for a seat with a 5 point harness that fits well into the seat bottom "bucket". I tried the marathon but the seat fits somewhat angled and the lower seat belt attachment is angled forward, not up so it only compounds the problem. With a booster the seatbelt crosses her too high on it's way back up to the retractor (she is too short)
Looking for some advice on what brand of car seat (front facing, for 2.5 year old) fits in the rear 997 C2S seat. I tried several types and they were all too large. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Long time reader, first time poster... I just purchased an 05 C2S and did not realize the engine issues. My car has 60k miles on it and I got all the dealer service records. The rear main seal was replaced at about 30k, and mostly oil changes since then. What should I do to keep the car in tip-top shape? I am thinking about changing the plugs but can't find a step-by-step guide here (just my ignorance of the search I'm sure) Also, I purchased the car from a non-dealer so how can I go about getting an extended warranty? Thanks again for your guidance!
