esymonds replied to esymonds's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)i replaced the gas cap and cleaned the o-ring really well with silicone. i also bought one of those pocket scanners for piece of mind next time. i erased the code and haven't seen it come back yet after a couple of days. if it comes on again i'll start looking for purge valves and disconnected ventilation hoses...thanks for the help.
esymonds replied to esymonds's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)wow, thanks that was fast. i've noticed before the code that the tank wasn't filling up all the way when i gassed her up. i've also noticed there isn't any pressure released when i remove the gas cap. do you think its my purge valve? thanks again for such a detailed illustration of the fuel system...i'm sure i'll be able to nail down the fix.

esymonds replied to lixmas's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)just replaced my tranny 2 weeks ago. i have a '99 cab. i broke mine after launching poorly and slamming into gear, the synchros grinded so bad i thought someone was running a chainsaw against my engine. i had to use two hands to move the shifter out of third. car ran ok for a couple of months (ie. some lunging, and hard shifts) but then it started popping out of 3rd and 6th gear. i took it in and had a new tranny and clutch installed. cost me 9,000 grand all together. car shifts a lot better now.
