  1. If you're still working on this, I have the battery tray you need to mount an Optima correctly. See my classified ad if you're interested.
  2. I don't know about you, but I'm tired of having to waste a half a day to go into town and buy some random $30 socket every time I work on this car. Since I've got just about every size except a 24 mm, I thought I was going to have to do this again. Then I discovered that a 15/16 socket fits the tensioner pulley perfectly too. And that's a common size found in most tool kits.
  3. Update: I ordered the following parts... Fuel Pump VDO Fuel Pump 911 VDO Price: $215.95 Qty: 1.00 Part #: W0133-1599720 Fuel Sending Unit Gasket OES Genuine Fuel Sending Unit Gasket 911 OES Genuine Price: $8.95 Qty: 1.00 Part #: W0133-1646700 Fuel Filter Mahle Fuel Filter 911 Mahle Price: $37.95 Qty: 1.00 Part #: W0133-1624873 ...and so far have dropped in the new fuel pump. I crossed my fingers and turned the key. It started right up after a few cranks! :thumbup: Side note: This problem started right after I dumped a bottle of fuel injector cleaner in the tank. It's probably just a coincidence, but you have to wonder if that did something to clog up the filter which would put additional strain on the old pump. Either way, I'm going to replace the filter before I drive it. After getting the car up on ramps and seeing the underside of the car for the first time, this looks like it's going to suck. However, I am constantly marveled by the engineering of these cars. And it's nice to work on something for once that you don't have to upgrade every single part- unlike American cars. "Stock" must not be a bad word in Bavaria, eh?
  4. Too late. I just got the pump out (after hand pumping a full tank out and into my truck). The pump and hoses look okay to me. But since I don't have a code, I'm assuming my problem is fuel supply related. I guess I'll just install a new pump and see what happens. Stay tuned.
  5. Awesome! Thanks! I've been away for a while, and I'm glad this thread lived on. My car is still dead in the garage. So many nice spring days are slipping by. Once I get a chance to tackle this again, I'll post my results.
  6. Hi all- I enjoyed a nice drive 2 weeks ago but now the car just won't start. It will crank just fine. When I turn the key on, there are different clicks coming from both the front and back of the car as normal, but it never fires. I do not smell gasoline from the tailpipe, so I assume it's a fuel pump/hose issue. The fuses are all fine. I took the battery out and removed the wires, hoses and black retaining ring from the top of the fuel sender unit. I can pull it up about 4 inches, but then it won't come out any farther. The hoses appear okay, but I can't see them all. So, what is the trick to getting this all the way out? I'd like to inspect the hoses before buying a new pump. Or let me know if you have any other suggestions for my starting problems. thanks so much in advance. -Mike 2000 Carrera 2, 6 spd, US version, 36k miles
  7. No, they are only 18s for the 911. The Cayenne did have bigger ones though. Also, there is no lip to polish on these. I do have 2 brand new rear wheels still in the box for sale. 18x11. $3300 was paid for these, but I'd sell them for $1000. See attached pics.
  8. Thanks for the info. I think I'll try to clean it with electrical contact cleaner while I have it out to see the part number. One more question though: What part number should I get? I'm finding several available. At first I thought I'd get the latest one, but I then heard I might have to reprogram the computer. I definitely don't want to do that. What do you guys think? 996 606 123 00 - original - Bosch PN B3130-70627 996 606 124 00 - update 1 - Bosch PN B3130-128499 986 606 125 00 - update 2 - Bosch PN B3130-149265 Thanks.
  9. Wow, thanks for the great information. I'm feeling pretty good about blaming the MAF now. :cheers: I'm new to this forum and really like it so far. There's some good info here that's hard to find. Word to GCP- Be careful doing that coolant tank swap. You have to be sure to bleed the system correctly or you can get air pockets in the head and seriously damage your engine. At least this is what I've heard. I'll order a MAF soon and keep you all posted to how it turns out.
  10. My check engine light came on and I pulled two codes: P1128 Oxygen sensing adaptation, idle range, bank 1 P1130 Oxygen sensing adaptation, idle range, bank 2 I don't think it's as simple as a bad O2 sensor- especially since it's both of them at the same time. I've read on other forums where codes like this can indicate a bad MAF sensor. I do get this problem after I drive the car about 5 or 6 miles. It used to happen every few months, but now I've got it twice in the past week. I really don't want to start swapping parts in hope of fixing the problem. And I really don't want to take it in for service. I just paid $750 to have the coolant expansion tank replaced. My wallet is still aching from that one. But I'd be glad to swap the MAF as long as I have some comfort level that it is truly the problem. Also, I heard a rumor that the emissions system is warranted for 7 years. I no longer have my warranty book, so I can't verify this. Is that true? My car is a 2000 C2 Coupe 6 spd. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
