  1. Panic over Guys:rolleyes:; Basically I routed around between intake manifolds to cylinders 5 & 6 and found a bracket with nothing sitting in it. I further routed around and found that the temperature sensor for the engine compartment had fallen down and was sitting on the side of the block and no doubt cooking. Temperature sensor is not back in its rightful place and staus quo is resumed. Dave :thumbup:
  2. Thought I'd also add that I've literally just picked the car up from having the intake tappets (lifters in US) replaced on bank 2. I think that the sensor is located over that side of the engine, so I'll check. Anyway, any help would be appreciated. Dave
  3. Gents, Any help would be appreciated; I have a '03 996 C2 Cab and today whilst driving the red temperature light started flashing and a message was displayed in the on-board computer indicating 'Engine Compartment Fan Failure'. I pulled over and checked the engine compartment, but the fan was running. However, the coolant level was around the minimum mark, so I topped it up. I then re-started the car and all was good for a few mile until the same message popped up on the dash and the temperature light started to blink at me again. I have watched the temperature guage and it has remained we
  4. Just did a 250 mile run today with my son. Up and down some nice mtn roads, great twisties, and some great food in between. :D Could hear it at a stop light after the first 100 miles or so, and plenty of other stops along the way back. I do not believe hot/cold affects it at all. But for now, I'm driving it as is. Thanks! Interestingly, my 996 C2 Cab has a slight squeaky noise when engaging the clutch, but only noticable in dry humid weather. If its cold or raining (therefore more moisture in the air) there is no squeak at all. I've heard that the problem is common too and mo
  5. Cheers Gents, Thanks for all the help and guidance. I have the RaggTopp kit now, but might wait a month or so until the weather improves here in the UK. Once again, many thanks! Dave :D
  6. Gents (and Ladies), I have a light grey fabric roof on my 996 cab ('03) and would like some advice on the best cleaning product to use. I have previously used Renovo 'Ultra Proofer' product on the roof to seal it (about six months ago), but it is starting to look a little grotty and would like to clean it up. I understand this product will take some elbow grease to remove before I can clean the hood properly (as it did on my last 996 cab), but wondered if anyone has had any good or bad experiences with different cleaning products. As ever, many thanks in advance. Dave
  7. Hi Loren, Checked my radiator ducts and they were both partially occupied by leaves. Used a vacuum cleaner to remove the leaves and radiator fans have not cut in at all over the last couple of days. Many thanks, Dave
  8. Gents, I had a PSE on a previous 996 (1999) and pursched a newer 996 (2003) recently with a PSE installed (without wiring) and have noticed the following: Occasionally, when I am sitting in traffic, I will hear what I think is the cooling fans cutting in (after I've been stationary for a while) and if I then blip the throttle, the PSE's are momentarily much deeper in sound. My PSE sounds great in normal use, but when the above occurs, is f**king awesome! Anyway, I just wanted to check if this was normal and if anyone has a more technical explanation of why this happens. Many thanks
  9. This might sound like a silly question, but I assume this will replace the auxilary connection to the CD changer? Dave
  10. Gents, Does anyone know the cheapest place to purchase a PSE (including wiring kit) in the UK for a 2002 996 C2 Cab? I'm also interested in US prices, as this might work out cheaper after shipping, taxes, etc. Also does anyone have any guidance details on how to install the wiring kit? Many thanks in anticipation of a response. Dave
  11. Loren is correct. There is no seal. I pressure checked my tank before installation without the sensor even installed and it held pressure. It is a PITA job and I did not want to install a faulty tank. The sensor is a dry sensor and does not come in contact with any coolant. If you look closely in the tank cavity that holds the sensor you will see that it is completely sealed. This is very helpful; so if the sensor is a dry one, I guess that it must be its housing that's leaking? In any event, I think I need to order a new tank. Many thanks for your help. :D
  12. Thanks, Loren. Does that mean that the seal for the level switch is integrated into the coolant reservoir?
