  1. Btw, you can find detailed instructions from LN here.
  2. ^Good point, John. The genuine tank for a 2000 is ~$488 (from sunsetporscheparts.com). If your tank was "only" $200~250, it's likely an aftermarket unit, perhaps with a very confusing name such as "OEM" or "Originally equipped".
  3. If the brand new cap was genuine parts too, I can't think of why it will come loose other than thread damage on the tank. Have you taken a closer look at the threads on the coolant tank and see if they are stripped?
  4. Sounds like so. Has it even been cross threaded? Is it a genuine Porsche coolant tank?
  5. You're welcome. I saw you looking for multiple hoses at different places so I was just curious.
  6. That's the vent line from the oil/coolant heat exchanger #30 here.
  7. Joe is right and I stand corrected. #1 and #3 are shown in this pic.
  8. Those hoses should be mostly hidden behind the front wheel liners.
  9. #33 is under the car along the transmission going to the heater core.
  10. Per the photos on Pelican of those two hoses, it looks like the one ending with "-05", which includes the small T nipple section.
  11. Nice find! Please let us know how it goes and whether the fix is good.
  12. It's part #18 here. There are multiple versions depends on your year and model. http://www.autoatlanta.com/porsche-parts/hardparts.php?dir=996-99-05&section=105-05
  13. I have no first hand experience with either shop. You may want to check for their reviews online. My thinking is it's probably less hassle to deal with a single shop for everything to avoid finger pointing if things go wrong. I've never heard of such "limp mode" explanation on variocam. My reco at this point will be fix the DME first and go from there.
