    '92 964 Cab Guards Red manual( never shoulda sold that One!)
    But the **** car always had electrical problems)Always !
  1. Thats my biggest ***** about the porsche dealer in Tampa, he wanted $81 for this littel pleated paper filter,like a **** fool i paid it, never again. besides my car is a 2001 Cab, it never gets driven unless the top is down ! What the hell you want with a cabin filter, GEEZ !
  2. iTS PART NUMBER 996 106O 1155, EBAY SELLER nUMBER 48673, duetsche parts USA, I'll updaTE YOU ON HOW GOOD IT IS IN SIX MONTHS. but i couldn't see any difference in the casting or the pulley or the pump vanes except maybe the vanes are a little taller which ought to make it pump more water, GREAT ! And its only $107 Great !
  3. Ok, I finished with the car and here is the "Rest of the Story " Removed the front bumper and cleaned the radiators,, no change. Replaced the thermostat and the water pump, both were in fine condition but i replaced the original parts with a metal impeller pump and a new thermostat, which I checked first and it did open at 83 degrees. also changed the hoses from the water pump and the thermostat housing, i had replaced the coolant expansion tank a couple of weeks previously. the problem i had with the engine carrier bracket in not being able to move it to the rear an inch , was that i had
  4. oK, HERE WE ARE ON sUNDAY AFTERNOON, THE SEVENTEENTH OF aPRIL, sorry about that, we have the water pump loose, its about to come off and i'm trying to follow the video closely, I have done everything with the engine carrier brackets and I have the engine jacked up a littel and my question is, the engine carrier bracket thing that goes from the engine mount to engine mount has all its nuts and bolts loose but why should it move? its attached to the engine mounts, it wont move, the engine wont move because of the front engine mounts so whats all this about move the engine carrier bracket forward
  5. Thanks for everyones replies, i have ordered a thermostat and a water pump and its due to get these this weekend, so i'll be certain to be advising of any success next week, and i'll get the system flushed as well.
  6. Thank You guys, I do appreciate your comments,to answer your questions, yes i am sure the cooling system was bled correcly after installing the new coolant Expansion tank because i didn't drain the engine block ,I just drained the engine until the expansion tank was empty, then i stopped draining so there could not be any air in the system. I don't think so anyway and i had the car jacked up just at the back so it was on a severe slope downhill when i did the work, also i opened the purge valve before i took it for a test drive. I noticed yesterday that the new expansion tank cap is not OEM, i
  7. I wish someone could give me a few ideas of what to do with a 2001 manual Cab that overheats. I did see coolant on the carport floor so i changed the coolant expansion tank and the cap, no improvement. this car runs fine, and temperatures run at about 185 for twenty miles or so, then it gradually goes up to about 200 degrees on the guage. I spent today cleaning out the radiators, I did a thorough job, completely according to the video here, thanks. I got about a two gallon bucket of crap out of the radiators. Took it out for a run, same thing. About 195 to 200 degrees after twenty miles, o
  8. Ok, I have a 2001 C2 Cab, it was leaking coolant onto the exhaust pipe drivers side, leaving a white stain. I replaced the coolant expansion tank and cap. the car still gets hot, if the guage is linear in its readings it gets to about 195 degrees. I'm thinking I might have a look at the radiators for blockage and also replace the water pump and the thermostat. I hear no noise from the water pump but i can't think of anything else. how do i get at the thermostat? I watched the videos and read the tutorial but didn't hear anything about the thermostat. Thanks in advance for any help. Roper
  9. Just send me a PM with your VIN. would you please run my Vin No, tell me what you can about my 2001 996 manual cab? vin no, WPOCAxxxxxxxxxx THANKS, BOB LESLIE
  10. I just did my first oil change with filter on my new to me 31,000 mile 2001 Cab, I started putting in nine quarts, then bit by bit over two days added another whole quart, so now have ten quarts in there and the dip stick and the dash agree, its full, but not overfilled. Not sure if it's worth the terror of worrying and waiting for it to explode, but feeling some confidence at this point. All seems well. Gretel seems very happy. The only Mobil One fully synthetic I could buy at Walmart in grade 5w-40 has got Turbo Diesel Truck written all over it, which concerned me, but it has all the correc
  11. Thats exactly what i need to know, I was trying to get ahead of myself because i don't receive this unit until the 8th of this month, so i don't know what exactly i am going to get but the unit is supposedly in original package, unopened. Can I get back to you when i receive it? I'll photograph what i receive and get together with you on installation, perfect ! Bob Leslie
  12. Thanks for your reply, my car is a 2001,it has the CDR220 audio unit. I have tried a few combinations of query titles for a search on this , but found nothing so far. Amazing that the looms are all different depending on options. I already have the radio keys. Maybe i will check with the dealer in Tampa, See what he can do with my wallet, i got the unit for $155 so i guess i can spend a couple of bucks to see it installed correctly if i can't find anything conclusive here. Thank You Bob Leslie
  13. Ok, I bought a CDC-3 brand new six disc OEM changer on Evil Bay. anybody know if this is an easy install? are there already wires somewhere ? Anyone know what to do?
