  1. Thanks for the info. I was going to purchase a set but it seems the "new" ones are degrading over time just sitting in the warehouse. I soaked the mine in dishwasher detergent and the coating turned white-ish. I then scraped most of it off using my finger nails and a nylon brush. Rubbing with body lotion and/or sunscreen removed the residue and made the knobs clean/smooth/non-sticky.

    Marvin is the owner and worked on my car.

    Keep me update on your progress.


  3. Hi,

    Just saw your post about the oil sender and really appreciate your valuable inputs! I am also from Bay Area and seems like my 996 is having the same issue as well... since your tech has experience in this area, would you mind to advise his contact so I can bring car for checkup/fix as well? Thanks!

  4. Thank you Sunnside and Deepblue for pointing out the problem being connections/wiring. My tech reported the connectors seemed a little loose and appeared to have some heat damage. I chose the quick and cheap fix - tighten the connectors (0.75 hrs of labor) instead of replacing them (3-4 hrs) . I'm happy to report after about 200 miles, including a track day at Laguna Seca, the problem has not returned.
  5. A couple of months ago, the oil pressure gauge dropped to 0 for a second or 2 and then jumped back up to normal. Happened a few times within 10-15 minutes. I replaced the sending unit with a new one (part number ends in 02, revised part?), and now after a few hundred miles, the problem is back. I also noticed sometimes the gauge fluctuates when there's no change in rpm. I just checked the connectors on the old unit and there's no corrosion. Any suggestions? Should I just try another new sending unit? The car is a 03 with 19K miles. Thanks.
  6. Perhaps the installation instructions for B&M short shifter will be useful? http://www.bmracing.com/bmracing/installat...truction/67.pdf
  7. Found the answer to my question. Apparently, "Porsche 996 The Essential Companion", page 114, is wrong when it says: Clean and reinstall the turbocharger oil container drain plugs with new sealing rings and torque to 70Nm (52lb-ft). It should be 22 lb-ft as anikzad mentioned.
