  1. have u even done any service to the tip tranny? would u notice diff. before & after the tranny service?
  2. i know the gas price is high, but that's still too much work for securing the gas tank! nice write-up, loren. :)
  3. MY 2001 C2 cab tip. 15.8MPG on high way and street mix, easy driving style. :)
  4. and why do you think about car company spending $$ on wind-tunnel?
  5. anything for tip? or we still need to go to merc dealers? :)
  6. thank you very much. people like you make this site and over-all porsche experense a much better one :notworthy: Sure! It's kind of difficult to get a good picture, so I just scanned in a page from the guide that show how to do this with the latch system, without a latch system, and for older kids without the front pad. I use the second column of instructions, except I cannnot use the tether strap in the back on my 996 cab, I have never seen a mounting point for it as the instructions point out on another page of this booklet.
  7. john, the Porsche junior seats look great! can you show me how to secure it using safety belt? thanks
  8. i don't think i heard a lot of cases about water pump, at least for 996, there are some cases for boxster. any sign before it gave up? load noise when engine was cold, etc?
  9. please remember to do a http://www.blackstone-labs.com/ so we have some real-life data. :clapping:
  10. thx, looks like i have a long way to go before 90K! :thumbup:
  11. so how freq. should i serve the tip tanny fliud? my car is MY2001 with 47K miles now. should i do it now?
  12. what do you mean by "temperature gage go higher"? mine stay in between "8" and "0" on highway, local traffic it's in the middle of "0" is it normal?
  13. unless this is a well-knewn, well-trusted garage, i would seek 2nd opion. my tip. also have loud tappging sound, not only startups, but aslo when idling. i asked my indy, he said it's OK. i will switch my oil back to 15-50 to see if it helps.
  14. I have the coins noise coming from the transmission area for quite sometime now, maybe about 5 months, it's that the sound you are talking about. sorry i don't have a first hand exp. with this. but if you search "crankshaft" you would find a few posts talking about this problem.
  15. i would go the dealer. since 2 yr/parts & service warranty is from porsche and it's good at any porsche dealer.
  16. so you bought 3.6 cans and mod it, and put on your 3.4? i want to do the same, just want to know if there's any catch, or simple bolt on.
  17. this is a somwhat common problem with 996 motor. crankshaft gone back. according to someone else had the same problem before, motor sounds like a coins in the dryer.... new motor from porsche is the best way to go, at least, in US. i just heard PCNA increased the price on rebuilded motor dramaticlly. is it true? where u get your new motor from? thanks
  18. very nice! where did u get the used tranny? as for the old tranny, polish it, make it coffer table! :)
  19. i remember that happend with another member some time ago, while his friend was "demo-ing" his car. :) do a search, you should find some info you need.
  20. ditto on porsche reman. engine. wrecking yard engine is risky. i heard good stories, and bad stories.
