  1. I know it's thanksgiving here... But I'm in Ojai, Cali and I was doing a brake bleed before a track day Sat and the previous owner stripped one of the bleeder screws (this is the first bleed ive done on her). Anyone in the general area that has an extra one I could buy?! You would be my hero!!!! Sean
  2. I've been having this issue for just over 2 months now. When the engine is cold, it starts and then about 2 seconds later it starts to stumble. The rpms drop to 500 and then after a couple of seconds the engine increases it's revs to about 1200. It will stay there for about a minute and then settle down to a regular 750-800 rpm. Here's a vid: http://vimeo.com/v3rnica/coldstumble EDIT: I don't know why this vid doesn't show up...if you click on View on Vimeo, it plays just fine... Here's another, shorter, vid: http://www.vimeo.com/25356604 This does not happen when the engine is e
  3. I was hoping to hear from Loren on this... I've never taken the bumper off so I don't know if this is an area where you would have to apply pressure of any kind?! Yes, the gap is still off, they just left it.
  4. Well, I'm a photographer, so high rez images are easy. I am trying to keep the file sizes down however, but I think these show the damage pretty clear... sean
  5. So, I've had some coolant leak issues for the past 6 months....the dealer replace the front right rad in January....and the about 3 weeks ago, replace an o-ring in bypass valve on the front left rad. I had to go back to the dealer this weekend so they could replace an overflow tube or something like that on the coolant reservoir. Saturday morning, I was washing and polishing my car and noticed the front bumper was not seated properly. The gap along the bottom of the headlights was larger than it should be. So I starting examining more closely and found the following damage where the bumper a
  6. Thanks for the replies. 1. I haven't been able to drop any oil out of the car, but the dipstick looks clean. Also, when the dealer installed the new reservoir tank, I had them do a full oil/filter change. I would hope they would notice something like that when they changed the filter. No? 2. The code on my reservoir cap ends in .01 so I guess I'll order a new, updated cap. However, the entire reservoir assembly is dry to the touch...all the time...and there is no evidence of liquid anywhere near it in the engine bay. 3. My windows do tend to fog up a lot, but not while the engine is runn
  7. ok, so this is going on a 6 month saga now.... Bought the car in July, Porsche Certified Used. Drove home (across Canada) no issues. Sept...did a PCA autocross event. Car worked flawlessly. Driving home after the event coolant light came on. hmmm, maybe I ran it hot. It was a very cold day though. Topped up the coolant. Couple weeks later, light comes back on. Only seems to lose coolant when the engine is fully warm. Just a tick over the 80 mark (Cdn car) No puddle at my home or work. The saga begins. Porsche replaces the coolant reservoir tank (crack). PHEW. Nope....still leakin
  8. Unfortunately, I'm 5 hours from the closest "proper" shop that could vacuum bled the system. I did drive for an afternoon with the valve open..maybe that wasn't long enough. As for temps...it will hit a low of -50 at some point this winter...so I'll be running almost straight antifreeze ;) Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try running with the bleeder valve open for a few days instead of a few hours. Cheers sean
  9. SIGH...unfortunately....I am losing coolant somewhere. I'm burped the system...topped it up....burped...topped it up....etc. After a couple of weeks of this...I've put a full 4 litres into it. There is no way this is just replacing air in the system still is it? There is no puddle under the car at home or in my designated parking space at work...so it's not leaking while parked. Since the dealer just did a full oil & filter change...I'm going to assume I'm not having the dreaded intermix as the service tech would have found that out right. So the only thing I can think of is it o
  10. So the dealer just replaced my coolant tank (cracked). No problem for the first week or so. Then the weather got cold. Down to -22C overnight. Last night leaving work, start the car, everything is normal. Once the car warms up to the point the thermostat opens, I get a low coolant warming. Once the car warms up to the next "tick" on the gauge...the warning shuts off. Forgot to check the coolant level this morning before leaving. It's cold and I'm sick... Anyway, same exact thing. Started fine, warmed a little, drove off...thermostat opened BING BING low coolant. Temp moved up about a
  11. did you ever get this worked out? I'm looking to do the same, but with a 996 C4S....
  12. Ditto.... To drop the tranny on my 6 speed, C4S....I have to drop the engine? I thought I only had to undo 3 extra bolts at the front the separate the carban shaft...
  13. hmmm, I'll try this at lunch today...thanks sean ok, tried this at lunch....3 times....doesn't seem to be binding as far as I can tell. So I guess that's good news, but the search continues... sean
