I checked with my local guys and there is no indication that the NC supplier did any work to the heads and the local folks say they didn't. What's involved with the heads and what's a best guess cost to work on them?
Another question along the same lines as above. 2001 996 C2 Cab Carrera 911 I had a rebuilt engine supplied by a NC supplier and installed by a local Indy which failed in the first 500 miles. Since the orignal supplier didn't supply a rebuilt engine for over 9 months, the local Indy at their expense sent the engine out had Cylinders 1 and 5 rebored and they reassembled and replace all the damaged parts destroyed in the engine supplied by the NC supplier. My question is that since I have gotten it back last July I have put about 3,000 miles on the car and have seen an average use of oil of about 1 liter per 300 miles. We have replaced the oil separator which didn't help the problem. I have had the oil tested and the results have shown no abnormalities. Occasionally on startup there is blue smoke coming out of the passenger side tail pipe. During the initial warm-up of 3-5 minutes upon acceleration blue smoke can be seen occasionally coming from the passenger side tail pipe. After warming up I do not see any smoke even on hard acceleration or deceleration. However the oil has to be going somewhere. No warning lights, car runs good, no unusual noises. Could this be worn valve guides or a problem with the rings? Any ideas?

Hedges posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have seen a lot of post on engine serial numbers but I am still having troubles. Can anyone tell me what this means 93862103 or Have I got some irrelevant set of numbers? Thanks in advance
Loren, I have the coolant drained from the engine since I am replacing the water pump. Is this the time to replace the engine temperature sensor, while there is no coolant in the engine? Am I correct assuming the sensor measures the water temperature? Thank you
Thanks Loren this is great! -****- 3.4 liter Engine Parts Locations
Does anyone have a picture of the location of the water temperature sensor for a 2001 996 Carrera Cab? -****-
Hedges replied to Hedges's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Not that the other post are incorrect, yours seems to make more sense based on what I have read and your comments. It seems that I recall that I did push the cylinder in and there was a click just before it started working again. I will keep any eye on it. Thanks for your post.
Hedges replied to Hedges's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I replace the plastic ignition switch last summer after I had trouble removing the key. Is this the same thing?
2001 C2 Cab. 58K At this weekend’s DE event I went to startthe car and the key rotated, in both directions, in the cylinder withoutengaging. After a few frantic moments Ifinally jostled the steering wheel around and the key engaged. Any ideas on what the issue may havebeen. Rest of the day the key workedfine but I was gentle. Thank you.
