Just an update... The next day the car ran fine on the trip to and from work; I'm guessing it was bad gas from the last fillup, so I'm going to put some gas treatment in it and see how it goes. <_<
Anyone else experience this problem, and if so what is the cause?? Drove my '06 997s to work and home today - car ran fine. Went on a short errand tonight, and when I started my return home the car began hesitating or sputtering, almost like it was starving for fuel. The car only has 1100 miles on it!! Any ideas or known problems matching this description?
06997S replied to superfans's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)FYI.. on the '06 997 (mine's an S), you can't apply brake pedal pressure while pressing the accelerator in gear - I'm guessing it's because of the electronic throttle control. If I am driving along and hit the brake pedal with my left foot, the throttle backs off. ;)
06997S replied to turkish_eyebrow's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)According to the MY06 order guide, the power package is inded the X51 option. It seems impressive, but also a lot of $$ for +/- 25hp. Personally, I'm considering (after break-in) installing an Evo V-Flow air intake, and possibly remapping the ECU, supposedly worth 22hp and 18 ft/lbs torque. I think this can be increased further with an exhaust upgrade, either Fabspeed or Tubi (I know - some folks here weren't impressed with the Fabspeed exhaust, but I'm unsure of the Tubi.) Either way it seems I could get pretty close to the performance increase in the X51 package for a roughly $3k expense. Dollar-for-dollar it would be easier for me to justify, but if you go for the X51 congratulations and enjoy!! :cheers:
06997S replied to egivens's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)No, I'm not sure, and it was just a guess. I looked in the MY06 order guide and there's no mention of it there - it's not pictured in the seating diagrams either. Is is possible it is an aftermarket accessory? Does it have anything to do with the audio system, whether standard or Bose? (Again, just guesses based on no info in the order guide.) :huh:
06997S replied to 06997S's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)OK... Got this figured myself (thanks to Loren with the MY06 order guide) - The Logbook software is an additional option (#641) which is available if either of the navigation system options are selected (#670 or #672). ...knew there had to be an explanation somewhere.
06997S replied to egivens's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I'd guess it's because the seat backs in the Cab are fixed, but the coupe backs fold down to provide a small shelf.
Just took delivery of my '06 997S with Sport Chrono, and the PCM manual mentions 'Logbook' software available for downloading trip data from the PCM, but no CD was included with my set of manuals, and the dealer seems clueless. Has anyone else had this problem, or did you get the software CD with the car?
