  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. checking it out this weekend will advise :thankyou:
  4. sorry for the confusion I'm looking at a MY 1990 944 s2 cab.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Is there anyway to get the original window sticker for my 1999 996 cabriolet?
  10. I'll check it out see what it says and get back to you :thankyou:
  11. I have a 1999 996 cabriolet. Howdy, can anyone tell me where to find the color code for my interior. Im not sure if the interior is space grey or graphite grey.
  12. You got a good point here. I was planning on driving it as much as possible but i work in NYC and commute from the burbs so i really only drive it on the weekends If we get a snowy streak it could be weeks before the side roads clear..Unlike some of my other cars this car doesn't do well until it get really warmed up.What I really would like to do is get a newer one c4 and drive that all time while keeping this baby as well :thankyou:
  13. I have a 1999 Cab 2 with 36k miles on it and it runs great. I live in the northeast so when the weather is bad I definitely wont use. It is garaged but there is no heat in there. Will starting it up once a week and driving it a little keep it juiced? Is there anything else I should do. The oil was recently changed. I also have a battery trickle charger just in case.
  14. Funny you should say that. I took the old cap off took in my house and scrubbed all the sediment off of the inside. Maybe that helped.I will get another cap anyway it couldn't hurt. :thankyou:
  15. I topped off the resrvoir with 50/50 last week and drove the car a couple of hundred miles this weekend and the overflow tank perfect. I didn't lose any antifreeze yet. So i guess this is good. Now i check it everytime I get in the car. Is evaporation normal? Maybe this happens at high revs?
  16. Makes sense. Is this a big job or is it easy to get at the pump and hoses?
  17. If the water pump was leaking would I see the leak when the engine is running? The oil looks nice and clear it was recently changed. The smell seems to be coming from the side where the overflow reservoir is. If it was the water pump wouldn't I be able to spot a leak?
  18. I have 1999 996 cab and twice in the last week the temp gauge light was blinking slowly so I added water to the overflow tank. The light went away but I was definitely smelling something. Today the light went back on. I cannot see any leaks on the floor of my garage but the overflow tank is definitely low and I can smell it when the engine gets hot. Now what. Can I get to these hoses or can only a pro check this out. It must be leaking when I am driving not when the car is standing.
  19. Thanks He said top was in manual/emergency mode with ~~~ time outs in vehicle computer. Re-timed all sync operations Ever hear of this?
  20. I just heard fron my porsche guy and after checking codes and system he said the code said the system timed out. He took it apart reset the system and now he said it works fine. He's never senn this before. I asked if it could happen again he said he didn't know. Anybody have this problem beform? Fortunately only a days labor and its fixed.
