    1999 Porsche Carrera Coupe
  1. Hi Richard, would you by chance know where the relais are located; i.e. the one for the starter? Tx, Oliver
  2. I have similar circumstances and I went with the cover. Haven't used it much, lately.
  3. Engine cranks over right away when the starter finally catches. It seems that outside temps make a difference, e.g. when I go to work early in the morning it's been pretty muggy in NE and warm the last few days (above 70*) and it might take a couple of tries turning the key to start the car. (and I'm off). Going back home in the afternoon has been a breeze. :rolleyes: When it's cooler out it takes longer. Sometimes it seems as though I need to hold the key in the "start" position as if the plunger on the starter solenoid would need to be energized to overcome some sort of resistance ( I'm spec

Shortly after I bought the car in January of this year the trouble starting it began occurring. I cleaned and lubricated the lock which seemed to make a difference for a moment, I bought a new switch which seemed to make a difference for a few days. Then recently I upgraded with a new ignition housing assembly from suncoast ( part #996 347 017 07 ) with the aid of R&R instructions from this forum. (
  6. Someone who's been on the scene for a bit suggested that Motul oil is the way to go because Mobil apparently has reduced its friction absorbing polymers and metal components. Anyone have a comment?
  7. HiJack, I am not a mechanic nor experienced in anything worldwild, but what you describe sounds like Turbo/EGR related issues. You might be on track with that waist gait talk...there might be some black smoke instead if someone were behind you long enough to report back
