    2002 911 Turbo
  1. Thanks for the link. Sorry for asking in wrong sub-forum, where should I have asked?
  2. What about 315/30 - 18? and for front will 235/40 - 18 fit? (stock is 225/40 -18) car is 2002 911 turbo
  3. The valves are bent and I need new valve guides. My repair shop says that Porsche does not sell them (no part number). I see the other topic for a 3.4L motor, will these fit mine? Is there an Audi part number for valve guides that fit mine? The car is 2002 911 Turbo with 6 speed (USA).
  4. Up date Dec 5, 2011 The check engine light did not come back on since replacing the dual mass flywheel with the single mass flywheel. The motor did break recently -- the Sprocket wheel that drives the right camshafts broke at its key way (and all the valves are bent on the right side). The single mass flywheel did give a lot of chatter and in hindsight the chatter increased in the weeks before motor broke. Does anyone have reasons to suspect that the lack of vibration damping with the single mass flywheel caused the Sprocket wheel failure?
  5. I now have 25 track days on the Pagid Blue pads (S or Sport, the RS 4-2-1 compound) on my 2002 TT and they are at about half the initial thickness. I hose them off after each track day and squirt out the holes in the rotors. While there is dust on the wheels it is not hard to remove (water and sponge). They are better than OE pads on the track and usually quiet on the street (no more noise than Hawk HP on previous car). I got them from Paragon Products.
  6. Try 9657 or 9655 I have tried both of them twice and they did not work. I have gone through the 60 minute WAIT twice. It now comes up as code. Another combination? Thanks, Bill You can verify the serial number using the technique in the FAQ. If you have not already read this FAQ - please do so... Lost Radio Code - FAQ, PLEASE READ THIS FIRST All is answered in the FAQ (hint hint) ok, thank you, 9659 did work. p.s. the computation of the code number could be dependent on how each computer system treats round-off and thus a number differing by two may be the resul

  8. I have 2002 911 Turbo, CDR 220, type 4462, Serial 250 151 15 (there may be an "I" in front of number?). thanks, Bill ps. I disconnected battery to change ignition switch, used the $34 Audi part and the directions given on this site, went well - thanks.
  9. I now have 19 track days using Pagid Blue pads on a 996 TT. They stop better than the stock pads and they do not make noise on the street.
  10. Check the manual. When the memory is set with the gear shift in reverse it will move the mirrors on first backing up. Best to reset all of your keys.
  11. -Exhaust causing misfire: The current guess for my 2002 911 TT (see above) is the misfire may be due to blocked exhaust (broken or plugged cats ?). Removal of test plugs before the cats allows car to run without misfire. Put plugs back in and misfire occurs. Car still in shop now. UPDATE: the cats are ok. The dual-mass flywheel is not. The spring connecting the two parts of the flywheel is allowing too much flex. The timing pick-up is affected by this and so the computer puts the timing to zero. And this leads to a misfire(?). Will post after flywheel replacement.
  12. I have a 2002 911 TT with misfire in cylinders 4, 5 and 6. It is still in the shop but those ignition coils are being replaced -- they had electrical resistance too large. Also replacing all the spark plug since at 51k miles it close enough to the next service interval. I will let you know when I learn more. 4pm/pt The new coils did not solve the problem. Check engine light came back on during test ride. More news in 24 hours.
  13. I have a 2002 911 Turbo that I acquired 60 days ago and on Monday the check engine light came on. The car passed smog when purchased and now has 50k miles. I was near a Dealer and they read the code but since it was closing time they did not really go over the print out they gave me. The Service person at the Dealer noticed that the inside of the exhaust tips were white, both of them, indicating lean combustion. I have a 13 page listing and there are 5 Faults. However, these Faults occurred at Operating Hour 1450 and the car is now at Hour 1650 (given in the POSIP (?) section of the li
  14. Anybody need a 17 mm allen socket? I ordered from Sears before checking the fill plug. Both of my plugs are 10 mm allen (2002 911 TT)
