  1. I'm not really sure what you are asking. The part number is for this: Muffler - Porsche (996-111-132-54) | Sunset Porsche Parts WWW.SUNSETPORSCHEPARTS.COM Porsche part # 996-111-132-54 - Muffler
  2. Try to reset the window limits. Push the button to close and when it has reached the limit continue to hold the up button for 10 seconds. Do the same for down, push down and hold the button for 10 seconds after it is down.
  3. When you replaced the AOS, did you remove the TB and left intake? There may be some residual oil in the intake. The AOS vents to Bank 2, the right side of the engine and left exhaust pipe. Having a bunch of oil in Bank 1, and right exhaust pipe, does not sound good. Thinking on it....
  4. I have heard of cases where a faulty MAF sensor causes the ABS/PSM to malfunction. Sounds like you headed in the right direction with fixing the wiring to the MAF sensor, and replacing it as well. Do you have Durametric or a scanner to check for codes?
  5. Better check the AOS coolant hose just to the right of the oil filler tube. That plastic hose connector always breaks. With the engine off not much coolant will leak. With the engine running it will look like a geyser spraying coolant everywhere.
  6. No, the engine wiring harness is a whole unit that connects to the X51 connectors in the engine bay. It would be extremely difficult to replace just the cylinder 3 wires in the wiring harness. Maybe you can find where the wire got pinched, and repair just that wire. Agree, it's going to be difficult in that location but it has to be done. What if you were to lower the engine to the frame and see if you can reach it? You had to do that to replace the AOS.
  7. What version is your DME? Error codes differ for version 5.2.2, 7.2 and 7.8, and since your car is a 2000, it could be 5.2.2 or 7.2 I would say generally that they (injectors) don't go bad, but just get clogged up. They can be rebuilt by a professional/specialist.
  8. Yes, that is the correct Workshop Manual section. Maybe someone with experience will weigh in on the pressure testing tool. I don't believe there is anything unique about the pressure testing port (schrader valve on the fuel rail), maybe a local auto supply stores might have one that will work. What you want to see is if the fuel rail stays pressurized with engine off, or if it bleeds down, meaning the fuel injector for #3 is stuck open as JFP pointed out.
  9. Sure would get old fast. I'm in Florida and cannot live without AC. What is the dreaded "black box"? From what you described it seems all the AC system components are okay, thus recommending having an AC specialist give it an all out refresh of the refrigerant. Sounds like you might be low. Most of the time the "recharge" cans from the auto store just don't work to push more refrigerant in the system.
  10. It sounds like all the major stuff is working. At this point I would take it to an AC shop with the proper equipment to vacuum all refrigerant, flush the system with nitrogen, and recharge the system with the proper amount and type of refrigerant and oil. Question - when you turn the AC on do both of your radiator fans turn on low?
  11. What year and make is your car? There is a guy over on Rennlist selling a bunch of parts from a 2003 C2. He might have an immobilizer. F/S 03 c2 996 parts - Rennlist - Porsche Discussion Forums RENNLIST.COM 996 Forum - F/S 03 c2 996 parts - Parts came off a 2003 c2 manual transmission 85k miles ECU $200 Cluster $200 Both drive axles $200 Both Radiators , Condensers With fans $375 complete wire harness $500 Abs...
  12. Agree totally with JFP. Coil packs and plugs are where to start. Check them out. Also, not having driven in over a month means perhaps your tank of gas is old. Might not be the problem but adding some Techron to the tank, and a full fresh tank of gas wouldn't hurt. Plan on changing the oil after that tank has run through.
  13. In 2000, Porsche C4 production (for coupe) was 3,862 Source - Porsche 911 996 Production numbers by year and version HOWTOPORSCHE.COM Porsche 911 996 productioni numbers for all versions by year. Model No. built 1997 Carrera Coupé:14 1998 Carrera Coupé : 8296 1998 Carrera Cabriolet : 952 Your engine number is M96/04 66Y 14721 One thing that would be helpful is a picture of the door frame sticker that shows the actual date of production. For instance, my car was sold as a 1999 C2 coupe, but was made 7/98. Maybe you can get that during the PPI
