ahkew27 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)We've been looking for a hardtop for our 2000 911 and came across one on Ebay. The color is listed as "Carmen Red Metallic - Code E4" . I can't find this color listed in the External Paint Codes. Our car is Arena Red Metallic, code #84s. On the internet the colors look very close, but you know how that goes. The question is where do I find more info. on these colors?
ahkew27 replied to valley996's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Yes, I did replace the AOS with out removing the trans. The intake on that side of the engine has to removed; I also had the muffler on that side off to check the plugs so that probably helped. In other words, take off everything thats in the way. It ani't easy and no doubt took longer than it should have,but it can be done.
I to have wondered about this switch and couldn't find help in the owners manual. So now I've turned it on and the lights flash and it carries on like a detector, but no sound. Our car is a cab, so does anyone know where they hid the speakers?
ahkew27 replied to hugo kohl's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Loren, what effect does the air cleaner type have on the MAF? I'am having this MAF problem; although not relacing the MAF, just resetting the codes. The fault will reappear in 2 or 3 days and i have wondered about the air cleaner. Is it possible this could be caused by a dirty air cleaner?
This is not a tough one. I really think you know which one you want, but I would get an out side opinion from a reliable person. 83k is not a lot of of miles if the car has been treated right and cared for. Have Fun!
Knowledge puts you above the stealer.
OK, thanks for your help you guys. I,ll have to break down and pay the price. How many is a bazillion?
LN also has them available without the housing; provided you have the special tool to swap them out........otherwise buy it in the housing (tool cost over $100, but you can also make your own)............. Have you made this change? It can't be that big a deal , can it? I have one in my personal car, as well as several customers that use it as well. It really helps to lower the engine oil temps as well as the coolant (the M96 actually runs much hotter than the grossly inaccurate dash gauge indicates). We have also observed an improvement in UoA’s after switching………. I called LN and said they do not sell them septratly. Where now?

Could anyone tell me where to buy a 160 degree thermostat for a 2000 996 with out buying the houseing with it. LN Engineering sells the thermo and houseing as a unit; so why would I need another houseing? Along with that, I do believe it would be a good upgrade. Anybody got any ideas?
ahkew27 replied to ahkew27's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Yes, the mount finally failed, which means the other one is not far off from failing too. Just get a new pair and either install them your self of have someone do it. You did nothing wrong, Fluid filled mounts just fail over time. It seems to be inherent in the design, no matter if you have a Porsche, Audi, MB, or BMW. They all fail. Orient Express, I was feeling pretty stupid about this. I thought I did caused it. Our car is a 2000 Cab Arena Red thats not quite up to yours. Ive noticed yours on here before and thought it looked pretty sharp. Thanks

ahkew27 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)This morning I jacked up the car to block it up for the winter. Came out later and there's a small puddle of oil and find it came from the left rear engine mount. I did jack up the rear by placing the jack under the engine knob jack point. Did I cause this problem by using the wrong procedure?
