I discovered a leak on the power steering reservoir of my 996tt. It was caused by a broken grommet. I need help to find a grommet like in the picture below. Can anybody give the part number of this red grommet or where can I get a replacement. Thank you.
I also had P1109 input variables charge measurement on my 996TT. A few days ago, I erased the fault codes with my Durametric and the CEL was gone. Then, I went out for a short drive this Christmas morning and suddenly the CEL lit up after about a mile from my home. I went back home, plugged the Durametric and erased the code. Now, there is no CEL, but Im afraid it will come back again unless I find the cause. I just replaced my TB and plenum with an Agency Power Plenum and throttle body from Vivid Racing. It was fine after installing the TB for several weeks until one morning the CEL lit up and the P1109 came out in my Durametric. Can anyone give any information on what to do?
I replaced my 996TT stock throttle body with an Agency Power TB and plenum from Vivid Racing. It gave my 996TT great throttle response. However, after a few days, I got a CEL and by using a Duramteric and I found the code P1109. I erased the fault code and the CEL was gone. After a few days, I decided to move the 996TT to another spot in my garage and the CEL lit up again. I used the Durametric again to erase the fault code. I read a blog at reentech (cant remember which one) where it said to turn on the ignition on for 30 seconds and wait for clicking sound at the engine. It meant that the TB has reset. So, thats what I did after erasing the fault code with the Durametric. So far, the CEL hasn't lit up. Can anyone tell me what to do next time if the P1109 fault code crops up again? Thanks.
I reflashed my 997tt with a softronic. You'll realize the difference after you download the reflash. It will be a different car when you drive it and step on the gas. Its worth the $1500+ price tag. Together with an exhaust and free flowing air filters, you'll love your 997tt more. :king:
Im having problems getting my 07 997tt engine started. I have to turn the ignition switch several times to get the engine started. But on my last 10 attempts to start the car, I coulnt start the engine. All I hear is "click".. My battery is new at 12.72 volts. I tried to use a jumper and still couldnt start the car. I now believe the problem is the starter solenoid. Can someone help me find the replacement solenoid in the internet? Please send me a link. Thanks
Thanks PhilippJ, Kabayan ba tayo? :) Yes, In fact, I ordered this morning a Softronic ECU from Billy of Vividracing. Ill just wait for the cables. The 997-1 is already quick in its stock set-up, what more with the Softronic reflash. 555hp will not be a problem to achieve. Best regards :cheers:
You really need it to be calibrated with a PIWIS. Happened to me already. The durametrics has no calibration features. Only diagnostics and to erase fault codes. I have a friend who has a piwis. I just followed the same instructions from Loren on this blog and my gas guage is now OK.
Yep. Got a softronic with launch control. Big, big difference. Worth all the money. After I downloaded the remap, the idle became more stable and the rev was more responsive. I shifted the 996tt on first gear and rev to 5200rpm. Then released the clutch and the 996tt launched like a bullet. A remap is worth it.
If you cam get a new diverter valve, just replace the bad one and see what happens. If it still doesnt hold the vaccum, then get another one. I replaced mine with Agency Power DVs and I didnt have any problem. It cost around $260+.
