Okay heres what the dealer found with my car. Vacuum pump bad as well as as the main vacuum line that goes off the pump. there was various splits in the vacuum hose due to age. $1100 dollar repair. Its as good as new or I should say better than new..That vacuum line has a sensor on it and also was time consuming to change..The brake pedal has much better feel than before, not as hard.
Yes I know the code is a7w but in the paint chip chart for that year for porsche there is two different codes showing for kristelsilber. I need to physically look at the code and I dont know where it is located. My paint shop wont proceed until I verify the code. Any sugestions?? Thanks...Im trying to get my wheels repainted and the truck is in my garage..
Hello everyone. Ive looked everywhere for the paint codes on my car. Any help would be awesome!! My color is kristalsilber, but the bodyshop said they found two codes for that color. Thanks in advance
Well to start off with , 1 quart of oil every 600 miles is far from normal. My father has been in the service station business all his life and I might add I have been in it all my life. Never have I come across a car that uses this much oil. Yes I did change the weight but I have owned many amg mercedes and never once have I ever had one that burned one drop of oil. My whole point is the weight of the oil, why did it make such a drastic reduction in oil use. Im going to stick with it. The truck has never run better, you guys can be negative thats fine. Thats what the forum is all about :) :) :)
Yes your probably right . im gonna take it in this week. ll let you know what they find :)
When I was using the 0-40, I had a lot of oil coming into the intake from the drivers side turbo. Also when I would come to a stop, the engine would stumble because of the oil getting on the sensor. The dealer told me that was normal and I should drive hard from time to time and it would get sucked up into the engine and blow out the exhaust thus not building up in the line. Since the change in oil the consumption went to zero. If you dont beleive it try it for yourself. I only went to the heavier oil because the summer is so hot in the south.
Hello to all.. I have something I wish to share with you that may be of some interest. With close to 65000 on the odometer I have been adding 1 quart of oil every 900-1000 miles like clockwork , so far so good.. The last time I changed my oil I switched from mobil 1( 0-w40) to castrol ful synthetic (5-w50), again so far so good.. Now it has been almost 5000 miles since the oil change and not one ounce of oil has left the engine!!I am curious as to why this would happen? I know that most of the oil lost is lost through the turbos and sucked up into the intake and exits through the exhaust, but why would changing the weight so slightly make such a dramatic difference? Any thoughts would be welcomed.. <_<
Hello, got the same message on mine awhile back while driving. Dont continue to drive or youll be calling for a tow as the battery slowly drains down until the engine finally gives out. Mine was the alternator not the battery. Good luck
bryan333 replied to malcolm lloyd's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Yes it is one of the worst parts to replace.. I had it done a few months back and besides it costing close to 3 grand (the water pump alone was over $1000.) They have to take so many parts off that ive been back three times because they didnt put it back together right!! On top of that about a month later I saw some performance shop on ebay was selling a brand new waterpump from a turbo for $150.00 !! Go figure.. :angry:
Hello, the brake seems the same whether the light is on or off. Actually my light is coming on now immediately after starting and staying on where as before it was on then off for a few days. Where is the booster and how hard is it to change? I have had the brakes, rotors upgraded to 8 piston front and 4 piston rears maybe two years ago and its been great up till now
Thank you. As usual great information..
Hello again. Driving in a very heavy rain storm in so. florida and passenger wiper stopped working all together. Drivers still works fine. Im on vacation here and any help would be greatly needed!! Wiper will move if you move it otherwise nothing..
I was driving home today and got a faulty brake booster light on the dash. Brake pedal seemed to go lower than normal. Im almost afraid to ask how involved this is..
Yes lately its been outside. When I took out the cabin filter to replace I did notice some pine needles etc. in the bottom of the filter tray, so I see debris entering inside the unit which I guess eventually got stuck in the drain line. But I will say I really had to blow hard in the drainline to clear it out, it was realy plugged up. Now I hope my carpet dries out on the drivers side as it is completely soaked with water..
Thanks RFM. What is involved with cleaning those oil lines in the turbos? Also if you dont mind, what is the lifespan of a turbo on a cayenne? Just wondering when they need to be rebuilt. Mine just turned 60k
