Serg replied to Serg's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I understand your explanation of specific reason for the on/off feeling, but this leaves the solution aspect of the question still hanging. Thanks though.
A new situation has presented itself; while cruising (not under acceleration)at a constant speed (not any one set speed) there is a variation in the revolutions per minute that the engine turns. It is apparent in the tach and it can be felt by my professional seat of the pants buttmeter. The variation is slight (between 100 and 250 rpm). I did a search for this issue but only found items related to idle and this is at speed. Any thoughts. Dirty MAP?, leaking vacuum line? ... Thank you in advance. BTW: 99 cab trip with about 70k
Serg replied to venturawildes's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)with the latest weather (cold and damp) my hopeful response is that as water condensates in the exhaust and cats its blown out as you start it up as water vapor. If it goes away quickly, it would lend more creditability to my suggestion. crossing the fingers.
Serg replied to jamescjohnsoniii's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Two sons; presently one out of university and one in the third year. During High School they car pooled so I purchase a mid 80's 420 sel (euro version of the Buick Roadmaster). That car made it through both of them and sold it for a $200 loss after their combined 6 year use. Both learned how to drive a large vehicle that required their attention at all times, both went through a driving school and I don't mean a driver's ed type class. They were both in accidents (not of their fault) with no injuries and I felt more at ease when they were out. After High School with 50% chip in from me, the first one ended up getting a Euro-635Csi from a stewaress that flew from LAX to Paris and had brought it into the states. Still has the car, 5 years later and gets all kinds of looks. The other ended up getting an Alfa Romeo Milano Quadrifoglio. They both take care of their cars and have fond memories of the Panzerwagon. Moral: Kids are kids, are kids are kids. Most cars today have more than enough power to get them into trouble. Protect them first, educate them on how to drive then help get them the first nice car. But make them invest in their own car, otherwise its not earned. My daughter is coming up for the first car - She says, hey how about a VW - I'm talking Volvo 240D if I can't find that 420 sel again. Be the parent first, the friend ....... distant second. Just my two cents.
996 Cab 1999 silver u.s. cal. type 4462 serial# X5025830 48/98 Gal: 00 That is what came up when I hit "tp" button and turn nob after "becker 1" came up. edit. From prior posts I took a guess at 9481, and progressed to 9485 which brought up a wait screen. I made 3 attempts at different codes with 9485 being the third and the one that brought up the "wait" message. How long do I wait? Is there a different code?
