  1. Hello Wvicary, Thanks for your input, even though it is bad news. I am going to get the car scoped by my local Porsche dealership today. I will be sure to update you all regarding the knocking issue and post pictures as well... Wish me luck. Is this a common issue? I have seen this occur on multiple forums and sites, all with the similar problem. It appears that most were able to resolve this within the warranty, but many are SOL. Thanks, Sam
  2. Hello Larry, I have the same issues. I purchased a 2004 Porsche Cayenne S literally two days ago, and have engine knocking sound. The dealer that sold me the car said it would fix for maybe $2,000 US, but I took it to a certified Porsche dealership and based on the sound alone they said there is internal motor damage and I need a new engine.

They all advised me to return the
  4. Hello All, I recently purchased a 2004 Cayenne S with 71,000 miles and shortly after I started to hear a knocking noise. I searched this site, as well as others, I am not sure if it in caused by the water pump or something far worse like cylinder damage. I would greatly appreciate your input, feedback, and suggestions. Please visit the YouTube link below to see and hear the knocking sound I am referring to.
