    996 cab
  1. I have just ordered a new starter. Crossed fingers. John
  2. You could be right about the starter. I had it out 3 years ago and checked, when I had another starting problem which was a combination of a faulty battery and ground cable. At that time it was fine, but that is of little help now :-) John
  3. Thanks, only my wife makes me lists that long :-) Checked voltage at engine bay. Aprox 12,5, guess it is ok after having used the battery for several starting attempts. Trying to jump start through the engine bay connection. No result. Cleaned battery terminals and grounding points. Can still not get into my head that it should be the starter or its connection hence the car was starting fine (excluding one incedent) before I swapped the battery. BTW tried with the old battery. Still same result. regards John
  4. Thanks, but what I do not get is that the car was running fine 2 days ago except for the small incident where it would not start. After that the car started every time. The only thing I did was to change the battery. I connected the battery to the battery of my other car to make sure it was not a faulty battery. So I was wondering if a immobilizer has been activated or the car has to reboot in some way. John
  5. Hi After a winter with no charger on my battery I thought my motor sounded a bit weak when cranked the first weeks after the hibernation. Then I had one incident where the car would not start after a short ride. I left the car for 30 min and then it started. Ok so I thought I need a new battery. Yesterday I put the new battery in. Same battery type as before which has work excellent for years. There is power on all electrical systems but the car will not crank. I can hear the click from the starter. Checked the wire connection from the battery to the frame, which I have replaced 3-
  6. Yes, but the case is that I never oiled the filter. John
  7. Hi Know that this i a Classic, but may be some of you have the same symptons. At kick Down my car would rev irregular arround 4k rpms and upwards. If I Applied the throttle more gently it would rev more regular. I have cleaned my MAF at least once every year, and each time the problem would get less but never disapear completely. For aprox 2 years I have been running a K&N airfilter and in that period the problems has gone worse. I have cleaned my throttle intake sevaral times. Today I just have put in a new MAF and went back to a "normal" air filter. Now the cars runs perfect.
  8. What is hidden for the eye....I have just installed my Fister mufflers in velvet Black, which match the top and bottom of my engine. Beside the incredible sound of the mufflers, it is just so nice to know that I have matching colors in the engine bay :rolleyes: I need professional help. :D
  9. By the way, would there be any difference in the oil pressure at hot idle depending on if I use Mobil 0w40 compared to Motul 15w50? John
  10. My 99 cab runs on Motul 15w50 and it suddenly shows arround 1 bar of oil pressure at hot idle, comming from 1.8. I am not loosing oil and the other readings seems normal. 3.5 bar at 2000 rpm and 4.5 at 3000 rpm. Could this be caused by a bad oil pressure sensor or is it something else? regards John
  11. Overhauled engine and now with new top with glass rear window instead of the original vinyl. Now it is about time to drive the car :drive: John
  12. It is their signature. They use the black powder coating for the top as well. John
  13. My engine went bust dec 30th and now I got my car back from Pomotec in Germany. Flew down early tueday morning and drove the car the 750km back to Denmark. It had a complete owerhaul and support systems like AOS, waterpump, Clutch, IMS etc has been changed. The bill was massive, but they gave me a 2 year warrenty on the engine with out a limit on kilometers driven, which I can extend after the 2 years to a 4 year warrenty for a small amount. The cyllinder block and liners was done by Capricorn in the UK. The coating is Nicasil. Not to open a oil discussion, but the Pomotec guys are very much
