  1. 2003 996 Carrera Cabriolet 6-Speed I'm having issues with the car periodically slow starting. By slow starting, I mean it sometimes takes 3 seconds after I turn the key and sometimes takes up to 45 seconds to engage the starter. It has been slow starting more frequently lately. I had the battery tested and it was ok. Sometimes it starts immediately. The battery is at least two years old. Any thoughts? HELP!
  2. I purchased a used 2003 996 cab w/ 6spd at 62K miles and had the 60K maint performed. At 73K it started misfiring and the shop had to replace all 6 coil packs and plugs. It ran like a dream for about a week and then it started surging around 3400 RPMs in every gear. It only does this when I'm going thru the RPMs slow to normal. At brisk acceleration, it doesn't happen. If this is the Variocam or Variocam II transition, why did it just start? Could it be that changing the coil packs caused it to start? Is there a fix? I often drive the car in traffic which makes brisk driving dangerous and the surge is annoying. Thanks for any help.
