  1. Are all tires the same size? Have you checked for variance in pressure and thread depth? A faulty angle steering sensor would most likely throw a code.
  2. I would check the coolant reservoir, if you still have the original. It's usually the next thing to go, after the pipes. It develops small fissures around the bottom seams that let coolant leak slowly when pressuriezed, hence the lack of evidence on the garage floor.
  3. Grab the plastic hook and push it all the way down, it is attached to a spring and you will hear a click when it gets to the open position. If it doesn't budge, try again but first pull the door handle and hold it in the open position, then press the tab down. That way you will be able to close your door. Next, spray some graphite lube down the lock vent and push the hook down, close door, open door, repeat. That should take care of any moisture that might be trapped in there and that usually cause this sort of problems. Wd40 works too, but it's messy and will collect dirt. If that doesn'
  4. A couple of years ago, I was driving from Miami back to NY, on a Friday afternoon when the front differential let go, about 100 mi north of Miami. Had no clue what had happened, I just had a sudden loss of drive/power combined with a massive vibration coming from the front of the car. Crawled to the first exit, was lucky to run into a truck repair and collision sort of shop, had this super nice guy take a look at it, and he's like, it's the differential. Out in the boonies, at 4pm on a Friday, with kids, dogs, luggage in the car, I started calling shops around, through my insurance, google, et
  5. That is it. The latest part number for transfer case fluid is 000 043 301 36. The transfer case in all AT 955 and 957's S, GTS, Turbo and Turbo S (both 4.5 and 4.8) is #95534104055. If you search porsche's parts catalog you will find that the ATF fluid is listed at pos.27 as part# 000 043 300 36. That part, however has changed to 000 043 301 36. Same for the two plugs, listed at pos. 20 as part# 955 301 115 00, have since changed to 955 301 115 01.
  6. I bought this last summer from ecs, for about $48. Haven't changed it yet. It's part # 00004330136. And two plugs (part# 95530111501).
  7. :) brilliant, alev8. sounds like an sos for engine mounts. and i do think you're right.. nothing has worked so far
  8. what i've noticed so far: the vibration is diminished when: - warm weather (winter vs summer, morning vs afternoon) - warm engine vs cold engine (regardless of climate) -no AC/Heat on also, no vibration when in Neutral, or when slowly crawling to a stop
  9. Hi guys, Just wanted to report back. I changed the coolant temp sensor about ten days ago and monitored everything closely. Car's been driven daily, mixed city/highway. All the symptoms are gone and the gauge works well, settling at 180º. Code P3081 never returned. The engine warms up evenly. No coolant leaks observed; coolant level in reservoir at constant level. I changed the sensor without removing the manifold, and although it's a bit difficult due to lack of space and visibility, it can be done with a bunch of extensions and sockets. I actually put together a diy, hope it comes in h

  12. Thats what I thought too. I just don't get it..Car's been parked all this time, coolant level hasn't changed, there are no leaks, no smells, no codes, all the symptoms just suddenly gone. I'd normally be happy with not having to fix things, but this just seems odd, and I have a feeling that it's not really over. Plus, reading all the horror stories of scored cilinders especially in cold climates caused by compromised cooling systems, I'm reluctant to even start it up. Puzzled here..I guess I'll go with changing that sensor first. Thanks for reading, any input will be highly appreciated.
