  1. The ignition key module on my 997.1 acted as you described. I think it is the same for your car. A quick DIY replacement corrected it, but then again, this particular problem is well known so you may have already done it. good luck Johan
  2. So great to hear. The guys behind the scene are so often the unsung heroes. Cheers, Johan BTW, you will enjoy the C2S. I’ve had the same yr/model for 11 years.
  3. Been following this thread with interest as I have a 997.1 S with ~120k miles that sometimes does the momentary chain rattle noise on cold startups common to the early air cooled cars. So, how does one diagnose the issue further? What would a Porsche shop likely do? listen with a stethoscope? Do you get a fault code eventually? Is it trail and error? First change the chain tensioner (cheaper alternative) and see if that eliminates the rattle? Johan

    Oil cooler

    Go to Porsche.com North America, classic car parts and look up numbers on respective PETs.
  5. You had a hydraulic not mechanical clutch. Does the ticking speed increase if you touch the accelerator lightly? Is it there at any time while driving? Johan
  6. Can’t tell model or side from pic. Overflow drain for either WW, brake fluid, gasoline or battery. Take your pick. Johan
  7. The sticky ignition switch replacement is definitely a DIY item. Quite easy, actually. Search here, on Pelican, Rennlist, and/or Utube for the procedure. Sunset and Suncoast usually have the best prices. Good luck. Johan
  8. I really do not understand this thread. What “module” was blown? Why does the removal of headlights clear the problem of blowing the “module”? Why not just disconnect the battery? Johan
  9. Not on my ‘06 C2S. Those are for an ‘02-04 according to theBentley manual. Johan
  10. 2006 C2S, US car purchased in USA and brought into Canada by me. OK, I feel really dumb. I’ve been staring at the list of fuses in the little booklet stored in the fuse block cover-nothing even comes close, at least to me, that would resemble a headlight and/DRL fuse. What am I missing? Please see pic below. TIA Johan
  11. 2006 C2S I now have the Durametric Pro which I understood could change the DLR from headlights to fog lights. I downloaded the latest software but cannot find anything relevant. Any suggestions? thanks in advance. Johan
  12. If not already done so, suggest rechecking fuse amperage against manual rather than what was already in place.
  13. What assurance do you have that the car was not damaged and wrapped to hide a bad repair job? A wrap is not as permanent as factory paint. You will have to deal with it’s deterioration at some point. If the paint flakes off then it’s not factory. IMO the wrap would have to come off and paint inspected as a pre-condition. Otherwise run as fast as you can. Johan
  14. Year and model would be helpful (base, turbo, and, etc). Is it still leaking and from where? Front, back, which side, etc? did you recently ad oil or had the car serviced? Have you started it since and driven it? You sure the leak is from the car and not the lawnmower that you may have rolled across the garage? Johan
  15. First thing is to get a Certificate of Authenticity through Porsche North America. google and Porsche web site will be your friend. The certificate will tell you the color, options, etc. Post some pics of your car. This will help to get some feedback for you to consider. Cheers, johan
  16. As well, the rear spoiler appears to be misaligned vis-a-vis the deck lid. Likely an alignment job for an experienced body man. Good luck. Johan
  17. I’m probably at least 4 inches from the top!! Isn’t the 996 and 997.1 clutch mechanism the same?
  18. Loren, I’ve had similar experience with my old 911 which I also tracked extensively. I do change the brake fluid by-annually (and slave bleeding) last one this spring, with no change in pedal feel nor engagement. From your comment, are you suggesting that my pedal engagement should be higher than 2.5-3.0 inches from the floor? Do these clutches finally granade without warning or do they gradually make first gear engagement progressively more difficult from a standing start? I just am unfamiliar as to what I’m likely to expect.
  19. 2006 C2S, All highway driving. From past experience with my cars, I know that I am gentle on my clutch/trani. 108,000 miles on original clutch. Pedal travel is still 2.5-3.0 inches from floor to start of engagement. I do not think that pedal effort has increased. Am I on borrowed time? Thoughts? Thanks in advance. Johan
  20. Hence my qualification if themissfire happens in damp/rainy weather where deteriorated coil(s) are more likely to show faults. If one is cracked surely one or more will be right behind and H2O will only serve to identify the culprits earlier. BTW, I share this from actual experience. Long trip through the U.S. Dry day-no issues; next day, quite humid- started misfire; third day -rain-crawled to the dealer. Multiple cylinder misfires. Johan
  21. If you had the misfires in damp/rainy weather then the coils are suspect. Johan
  22. No special tool supplied with my car. Can you use a straightened out paper clip as in the 996? johan
  23. Loren, I’m wondering how the key tumbler assembly interacts with the module above. Does the tumbler push a rod into the module for the first click of the key followed by a further turn of the rod (with fingers, presumably) to start the car? Johan
