  1. This was a long time ago. Any update as to what it was. I would have used a stethoscope and listened to various parts of the engine, both on top and below. I know noises can travel in an engine making it difficult to pin point it, but it might help.
  2. Check out this Youtube video at the 5' 50" mark... ECU Interrogation using a Durametric Diagnostic Tool
  3. Looking at a YouTube video of the Durametric at a feature called Rough Running, Cylinder X, what do the units mean. From what I can make out, it looks like 1/s^2 or l/s^2.
  4. Thanks for the info! Needless to say, they can do a far better job of documentation. After all, they are selling these to the average DIYer.
  5. I've had two Durametric products so far; the Enthusiast version and about two years ago, bought the Professional version. Yeah its OK and it does some neat stuff, but Durametric seriously needs to produce a detailed manual and not the User Guide (dated 10-6-2019) that can be downloaded, which by the way, shows screen shots from versions that no longer exist. Most folder names are self explanatory, but what does BCM Front, BCM Rear mean...for example. Maybe an acronym chart would come in handy. Then Durametric's on-line video demonstration describing the Rese
  6. I looked at both the Service and Parts Manuals. All I could find for a location of the fuel pump relay is what appears to be in the driver's side fuse panel footwell area and it seems to be a single relay, instead of a dual relay as used in the 993. Will look for it when the time comes to pull the car out of winter hibernation. Thanks!
  7. In the 993, I would simply pull the DME Relay. That cuts power to the fuel pump, etc. I could then crank my engine to pre-oil the motor after extended periods of storage. How is that done on a 991?
  8. Don't you just love these dipstick-less cars designed for millennials? On my first oil change, I over-filled it by 1.25 liters all due to the fact I did not fully understand the Oil Measurement Display. I thought the MAX level was at the top of the bar, which it isn't. The MAX level is shown in A below. Anyway, I just drained it and the level is at MAX. I also would not use a vacuum pump for the reasons mentioned.
  9. Some tips on CCU repair that I came across... CCU Repair
  10. The pic was taken on a very sunny day which makes it look like a light grey...certainly closer to anthracite. The only thing, according to the Porsche parts catalog, a 1995 993 only came with a black carpet. I'll have to check with my dealer one day. I want to match a CD changer cover to the carpet.
  11. Would anyone know what color this carpet is; black or anthracite?
  12. So that is what it is. I happen to have that technical bulletin on file as well. I would guess there is one on the driver's door as well, because the one pictured above is on the passenger door. I still don't know what the Digital Sound Processing System is all about or what it does. My 993 came with option 490; Hi-Fi Sound System. Thanks.
  13. I had the lower door trim panel off to install a new loudspeaker grill and noticed this connector not connected to anything. It is located just back from the door lock release lever. Would anyone know what it is for?
