  1. Thanks everyone, it sounds like i need to buy some coolant and see if that works. Thanks for you help! --Nick
  2. Hello everyone. I have a '99 c2 with 71K on it. Ever since yesterday, when I am driving the red light on the "hot-side" of the temp gauge blinks. The car cannot be hot since it does it even when I have let it cool for a couple of hours. The temp gauge seems to work normally besides that. The needle rises and stays put at just between the 8 and the 0, so that seems ok. Does anyone know why this happens? Thanks! -Nick
  3. Thank you everyone for your quick response. I going to go driving now. :D --Nick
  4. Hey everybody, I just purchased a 6-speed '99 c2 coupe, silver with red interior. It was $34,000 and has 65k miles on it. It looks similar to Loren's car. Anyways, I can say that it is the best car that I have driven. I just sold my '99 m3 and was looking for either a 996 or a corvette z06. The corvette had ALOT of power, but the shifting felt clunky and it didn't have the communicative feeling that the 996 has. So in the end I went with the porsche. Being a new owner I just had a couple of questions. First, I read in the owner's manual that you should never let it Idle to warm. What is the reason for this? Someone told me it might just be an emissions thing, but I wanted to know for sure. Secondly, with it being a higher mileage car, should I be worried about driving it hard. I normally don't open up the throttle, but i like to feel the full power sometimes. Also, driving around town or on the freeway what is the best RPM to be at. I don't want to lug it but I also don't know how high I should keep the revs. And finally, are the wheels that are on it factory wheels? I don't remember seeing them on the other cars i've looked at. Thanks for your help, this is a great site. --Nick
