bigpeps52 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Howdy, I have a 1999 991 cabriolet and all of a sudden the other night it started running rough and then the check engine light came on. The next day the light went off and the car is running fine. I just got an OBDII reader and P1314 code came up. Code reads engine misfire cylinder 2, emission relevant. Should I panic here. I have put about 100 miles since then and the car is running fine. Please advise. Thanks, bigpeps52
bigpeps52 replied to Bmargetts's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)had similar problem last year, couldn't figure it out had it almost apart. After spending lots of dough mechanic said the computer had timed itself out. Reset codes and it works better than ever. I hope this helps you
I have an opportunity to buy a 1990 944 S2 Cab with 36k miles original owner. Always garaged etc. Car has been serviced and is in meticulous shape. I drive a 911 996 cab which is great. Should i even consider this car? Are these cars mechanical nightmares. Obviously any 20yr old car will be some kind of headache. I don't plan on driving it regularly just another toy. What does anyone think? Run for the hills?
I have a 1999 996 cabriolet with 37K miles on it. 6speed. Today the car runs great no problems. Just changed the oil before the winter and now getting ready to go again. Given the age and mileage are there any preventive maintenance things I can do.(ie change belts, water pump etc.) I want as much carefree driving as possible. I'm looking to spend dough. Saying that i know anything can happen but you guys know waht I could prevent now to stay ahead of the curve. I plan on keeping this baby a while. It is in mint condition. There are no leaks anywhere. Looking forward to hearing your responses.

In model year 1999 pretty much all the cars had a speckle finish for trim parts. This was called Graphite Grey. The other interior color would be for seats and leather/vinyl. Likely Space Grey. Space Grey is also likely the color of your cab top. Space Grey is darker than Graphite Grey. Actually that is the color of the dash and the seats are leather but my top is blue
Found sticker under hood L92U which is arctic silver but interior color code is BB. Does anyone know what this is. It is dark grey, I am not sure if it is space grey or graphite
