  1. 400 km driving in havy rain solved the squeeking noise. Looks like lots of water washed out any kind of emulsion I sprayed there. Solved.
  2. @JFP in PA thank you. I thought it's a common info. I will read the device instructions.
  3. Regarding the fuel pump checking i would like to ask if somebody can read the numbers below and maybe point me to something what isnt correct. Thank you
  4. JFP...You are a pro. Maybe you have idea: when i had a more close look to the OBD numbers while hunting for the high temp reason the tool showing some infos about the fans which i cant get on context. Google couldnt help too. maybe you have a clue. Fan P/D factor, what this number should tell me?
  5. Check the codes with my iCarsoft. I found: P1431 P1428 P1429 Looks like some kind of electric problem. I cleared the codes and made a round. No warning on the display anymore. Strange. What could cause this.
  6. i did a test this evening. Outside temp 22 degress. ICarsoft OBD Tester first of all some guys here are right. Our oil temp gauge is a toy tool. mine stay always at 90. doesnt metter which temp outside and how i drive. Measuring with the tool = 107 degrees gauge = 90 degrees water is the same : the OBD reading is always HIGHER than the gauge. I let the car idle at 570 rpm for some minutes water temp according OBD = 96 water temp according gauge = 90
  7. @Lewis thankx a lot Lewis. i will see what the tester will show. - according your info the fan is starting at 89 degrees at stage one - at which event the fan is running on stage 2 i understand when i shut down a really hot engine the fan has to run for some time after. Every car is doing this i guess. mine i never hear running when engine off
  8. @Kikokiko1976 thank you for this point. I need to check the forum how the fans have to work.
  9. Could manage to drive home 1000 km with warning still in the display. I taped some sensitive areas just in case but didnt help. Tomorrow i will see what my OBD tool will tell me
  10. @Lewis just came home from my 1000 km trip from the sea. The temp gauge is strange. Outside temp quiet warm. Lots of traffic jams . In the beginning sometimes the temp went close to 100 . After i run AC constantly. In this way the gauge is always in the middle. Something is not like it must be. Need to do the vacuum filling again to take out possible air pockets. when i was close to home i run it for some time over 240 on the highway. Temp in the middle. Hard driving doesnt push the temp
  11. @JFP in PA thank you. So the specs for oil are given. What i can do change the oil more often using high octan gas because thats bringing down the combustion temp too cutting some slices into the hood to get a air scoop for better fresh air Access (i was really thinking about it :-)
  12. Might the sort of oil we are using and the interval we change it have some impact of operation temps with this engines?
  13. @PkcayenneThank you for writing. I will check again carefully for splits
  14. I am in the same boat now. The bad thing, i am 1000 km away from home. Why this kind of things need to happen always far from home. I inspected all tubes like explained here. Couldnt find a crack. The brakes are behaving as usual. Until now. I have to drive back 1000 km. What to do? Any idea? Thank you
  15. You really deserve a good end of this story. The rumbling and vibration will be gone and you will see its a big big difference
  16. Thank you Lewis. On the passenger side is sitting the fuel pressure regulater?! Should i get a new one? about the bushings, i used some kind of rubber care like shown below
  17. I will need to change my passenger's side fuel pump. The other one on drivers side should be already replaced according the shop. I would like to try to do it by myself. Does anybody know if I need to open both sides of the tank or is one enough? Thank you Second question is touching my suspension. I didn't have any noise so far. Last weekend when I changed my wheels I thought it could be a good idea to get some rubber protection/ Maintenance spray to some of the suspension parts. Very very big mistake looks like. Since then I have a terrible annoying squeeking noise while driving. Coming from the front somewhere. What the hell this spray did what is producing such a noise. Any idea?
  18. I was driving now 1000 km nonstop. 34 degrees outside. Until now no major temp.problems. I adjust water level at home but without using the vacuum equipment. We will see what next days will show
  19. Such stupid mistakes from repair shops make me really angry. Same with me. My manyfold was 3 times off in the last 2 years. Starter. Breather Hose. 3. event i dont even remember. They dont think ahead. While already there i expect checking of items down. The breather hose for shure looks not good when they open first time for the starter. Nothing. 6 month later i went in for the hoses. They could do everything in one time
