  1. This is what i found when I removed the bolt. The broken spring had threaded itself back together.
  2. The brass looking bolt is the one. It's about 5" long with a 4" spring over it and a small chrome piston on the end. It's a steady 1/2" stream of Mobile1 while the bolt is out so you have to be ready. Remove the bolt, take the piston off the end, slide the old spring off, slide the new one on, and put the piston on the end. Fight the flow of oil shooting out of the hole you're going back into. Tighten to slightly past snug. (torgue?) Replace lost oil. The faster you move the less to replace.
  3. I hadn't driven the car lately and took it out for a spin. After it warmed up, I stretched it's legs until the speedo pegged stupid, then i eased out of it for a mile or so and exited the highway. When I got to the intersection the oil pressure lamp lit up and i noticed it was about .3 bar. I could hear my sphincter pull my Levi's into my collon. A quick blip of the throttle brought it back up to 1.5, where it mostly stays. Even cold it doesn't usually make it over 3. So I headed to the house and hit this forum to find what I thought was my best guess as to what is causing this. The top choices seemed to be switching to the hotly contested "right" oil viscosity or a collaped or improperly fitted oil filter. I considered both of these causes and the bad charma my wife continues to throw at me and this car because she just doesn't get it. The correct answer turned out to be the bad karma. She caused the low pressure piston spring to break in the middle and the movement/vibrations allow it to thread itself back together to make a half as long - twice as strong spring, and that apparently will cause low pressure pretty much all the time. I ordered the part from the stealership $8, bought a cool new hat, and once it came in I swapped the springs. It took me little more detective work to find the bolt the spring goes over but once I did it is a 60 second swap. BTW, you can let out a lot of oil in those 60 seconds so be ready. That fixed it. 5 bar at start up, 1.5 at idle, and 3-5 going running thru the gears. I'm willing to bet there are more of these worn out springs/bad wife karma combos out there so now you know. Maybe the brighter already knew.
  4. 2000 996 Coupe This morning I found this loose connector hanging by the zip tie. I looked around but I could not see the device it is supposed to be plugged into. It had fallen pretty low below the engine but it is zip tied to a bundle of wires that just to the right of the air cleaner. Does anyone recognize it? Should I just cut it off and act like I never saw it?
  5. I just finished repairing the collapsed horn frame (yay) which required disconnecting the battery and now i have no music (boo). Can someone generate the code for me? It's greatly appreciated. 2000' 996 type 4462 serial X5030505 CDP2081 and I think its my Foo Fighters in there! Help!
