  1. Thanks loads for the info....Guess I'll have to cough up in the springtime....
  2. Can anyone tell me about the IMS recall for the 996 model 911?, Ie: when did the recall start? what did Porsche do for its customers (initial buyers, not buyers buying as used)?
  3. I have a 2001 Cab, with Tiptronic, with 16K miles USA model, and although I have no noise, no fluids leaking, I am getting concerned about replacing the IMS. as I have heard many horror stories. I purchased this car new in Sept 2001 (two days before the horrible event of 911). I live in the St Paul Minnesota area. 1. Could you folks please reply with the cost of a competent mechanics cost to replace it. 2. I understand there are different manufacturers of this bearing, with some making improved versions, and so could you please also give me some thoughts on who makes the best. 3. I also understand (from a UK member) that there are install kits available, and so I would love to know if this exists in the USA also. Any other suggestions/comments/advice would be greatly appreciated.

  5. Those r great photos Theresa! send those last six shots 2 me if u will, to my email, i'd like to send them on to my kids.

  6. If and when (hopefully not) the check engine light comes on again, I'll be able to check on the suggestions offered. Many thanks for the replies. Steve Hubbard
  7. P1128 bank # 1 P1130 Bank # 2 However, this is the second time the check engine light came on, we then cleared the codes, and have gone some hours driving and no check engine light returns. Strange. The last time the engine light came on was directly after an oil & filter change, just prior to mothballing the car for the winter. Cleared the codes in the Spring, and so far no engine light return. Methinks to leave it ALONE! What code(s) are you getting?
  8. OMG, after reading this thread, and heretofore having purchased the MAF Cleaner, thinking a check engine light readout surmised it was necessary to clean it, I believe I'll do more harm than good, I don't think I will ever attempt it!
  9. I'm curious, just how much is a durametric. I'm thinking to buy one, new or used. any sellers out there too?
  10. OK will do. i have a fellow coming to the house on Friday to read out and clear the code. was just wondering what could have happened during the oil and filter change, or if it is just a coincidence.
  11. Anyone have any ideas on this problem.: I had an oil and filter change, (0-49 mobil one,, and porsche filter and washer), immediately after the change the engine light came on. I am returning tomorrow to the service station, and would appreciate some ideas to discuss with the mechanic. No refueling was done, and nothing else (I was standing by) was touched... Maybe just a coincidence of course and something else is going on. the car ran fine on the way home, ambient temp (in Oct) was about 60 degrees. I detached both oil filler and gas cap, and re fixed them. Thanks in advance for some ideas.
  12. Does or has, anyone moved the awful cup holders out of their position and replaced with a shelf or whatever? I'd love to get rid of mine and have even just an empty shelf. What have you done?
