  1. Actually there is a atmospheric breather port on part #6 above, which looks to be it in your picture. It could be as simple as replacing that part and with a new O-ring. It could be the spring inside is old and worn out. 99610704751 Double check this part number for your Targa.
  2. Fuse E6 - check Fuel vent valve - replace Reed Magnetic Switch - replace Replaced fuel vent valve - now unable to fill gas tank - Rennlist - Porsche Discussion Forums RENNLIST.COM 996 Forum - Replaced fuel vent valve - now unable to fill gas tank - Have had a couple of instances of P0422 (minor vapor leak) recently and an occasional fuel smell in the cabin. Replaced the gas cap, however that did not solve the problem. Replaced the fuel vent valve...
  3. You are correct on the P/N 996-107-225-53. If the box is shorter then the filter is shorter, and you definitely don't want that. Is there a part number on the filter (not the box)?
  4. There is so much wrong with this approach I don't know where to begin. Agreed, a trip to the dealer MAY sort this out, but I would hold onto your wallet. The key, immobilzer and DME/ECU must all be programmed with the same codes only Porsche Stuttgart can provide, to a licensed Porsche dealer with PIWIs. What you have done is replace parts with other parts and expect them to work. It doesn't work like that. Key provides both the mechanical laser cut key blade that works the electro-mechanical parts of the door locks and key switch, BUT, also includes an passive RFID pill that must match

  6. I take it that trying to start it, it cranks but does not fire? Is that correct? Or does it not crank? Cranks but no fire is caused by the CPS - crank position sensor. Does the tach needle bounce when you try to start it? If no crank - ignition switch, bad starter, corroded Y-cable, clean all engine grounds
  7. Huh. My thoughts in this order...turn signal in the steering column, contacts need cleaning, the light switch, replace the electrical part of the light switch, and the electrical part of the ignition switch which is known to cause all kinds of gremlins. You may even try pulling the headlight and use a multimeter to test the pins while turning on headlights and turn signals. Electrical problems are tough to solve.
  8. Did you check both the front and REAR left turn signal bulb? Could be one or both.
  9. Just a guess...but how about checking and cleaning the ground point for the headlights/turn signals? Not sure where it is but there must be a common ground point somewhere in the frunk area, maybe under one of the covers next to the battery or near the brake master cylinder.
  10. Look up at the top of this page. Click on Documents. There is a VIN lookup and Option Code decoder. Good thread on all the option codes Option Codes - Rennlist - Porsche Discussion Forums RENNLIST.COM 996 Forum - Option Codes - Hey guys.......been searching on this site but can't find a definitive answer to this question............ Are the option codes on the sticker the actual options that should be on the car........OR........are they simply a list of possible options that could...
  11. Although your question has been answered, if you are going to DIY then this is what you need “996 Torque Book” – Fastening Specifications for Porsche 911 (Type 996) Automobile | The Knowledge Gruppe WWW.THEKNOWLEDGEGRUPPE.COM Fastener size, grade, assembly position and tightening torque. Lacking this publication, most technicians find themselves looking through pages of workshop manuals to search for fastener torque va…
  12. You replaced your MAF sensor....with what brand and type? It must be OEM or a Bosch unit.
  13. Engine number is on the drivers side next to the oil sump pan...like this. You are correct. 2000 was a transition year for the IMSB from the dual row bearing to the smaller single row bearing. As far as I know, on a 2000, there is no way to know whether it has a dual row or single row bearing by using the engine number. If it were me, I would just plan on having the LN IMS Solution installed as soon as possible. No sense in pulling the bearing and replacing with another bearing that will need to replaced again in 36-40K miles.
  14. With all of the parts you have replaced, and if your throttle cable and TB exhibit smooth operation (not sticking through full open and closed), the DME/ECU controls the idle speed. Reset your DME/ECU by disconnecting the negative battery cable for 30 minutes. Make sure if your radio requires a code that you know it. This will return the DME/ECU to default values vs learned values.
