My repair cost around $450 in total up here in Canada. Just brought the car back in for exhaust mods. getting a cross over pipe installed between the inlet and outlet on the mufflers. should sound nice..I hope....
Well..its in the shop as i type and the TRANNY MOUNT is gone.. simple fix thank God. Apparently not that common of a problem on the tiptronics. Manuals are more prone to breakage. Both rubber insulators where completely gone. He has never seen one so bad.
Mine just starting making the noise also. Very loud in 1st gear from a dead stop. Not as bad in 2nd. Its going to the shop this week and i will let you know what my problem is also. My first guess was a mount, 2nd was a CV joint.
hoacha replied to nylewis's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)If your cams are wearing to that extent, i think there would be metal debris somewhere in the oil. Whats your oil pressure like ?
hoacha replied to Loren's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Just hit 159,000k on my 2002 C4S (with Tiptronic).. Still runs perfect, never changed anything motor related except the ignition coils. I get an occasional puff of white smoke after starting it, but it only happens maybe once a week..weird... I run it hard and dont baby it. cheers.
hoacha replied to Loren's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hello folks.. I am the new guy here. I have 143,000km on my 2002 C4S without any major problems.. Is there anything to extend the life of the motor( RMS and Int shaft in particular) that I could do , other than regular service?. Maybe a thick oil other than 0W40 ? Thanks!!
