  1. I replaced my fuel pump in my 01 C2 and now my gauge never reads full, only 3/4. Just want to confirm for my car it is 12 liters; and nothing has changed in the last 4 years.
  2. Ahsai and JFP, you guys would recommend the ceramic bearing over the IMS solution?
  3. Should I message Jake? Or call LN? Can remove/reuse the flange to inspect the IMS?
  4. That diagram looks like my trans but it says bolt C has a washer, and none of my bolts had a washer upon removal...... upon removal I had them all perfectly set aside, unfortunately a silver marker and some tape would have saved me the headache of bumping them; live and learn.
  5. I have searched and scoured what feels like the deep bowls of all things 996, I found one for the boxster and one for a 996 but they only discuss 7 of the 8 transmission bolts. I'm hoping this is an easy one, does anyone have a diagram showing the bolt size and hole of all 8 bolts on the transmission? Upon removing the transmission my creeper bumped my bolts and I'm not sure which ones goes where. Thank you in advance for saving me from myself.
  6. Woo! thanks Ahsai, I bought the RMS and AOS already, kinda expected to do it all. Is my IMS a dual row? Any special need/way to clean the Oil heat exchanger?
  7. I noticed a really significant oil leak recently coming from the bell housing over the past few weeks, and since my car is a 2001, planned to dig in deep to my IMS once everything was apart. Looks like it's the RMS leaking oil everywhere, BUT I also noticed I have what looks like blow by all over the top of my rear manifolds, and what looks like calcium deposits coming from what I think is the oil cooler...... Lastly I think I have a dual row IMS, can someone else please confirm? And lastly, for the million dollar question, is it worth replacing? IMS solution or LN bearing?
  8. Our cars are transaxle differentials, that being said i'm sure its a matter of splitting the tail shaft from the bell housing and moving parts from one to the next, definitely not as easy as a ring and pinion setup on good 'ol American cars.
  9. Thanks Loren, new part ordered and my master plan of not having to bleed my clutch system has been foiled.
  10. I'm finally getting around to replacing my RMS, clutch, and IMS. I got the transmission dropped tonight and in the process of taking the clutch slave cylinder off saw a tiny hole in the boot leaking a bit of fluid. My clutch has never given me issues, I've actually never had to add any fluid in the 7 years of owning the car. The boot was caked with oil and stuff, did i tear the boot when i took it out? If so can I buy just a replacement boot and will I need to bleed the whole system? And to think i was going to be able to do this without breaking anything.......
  11. Hey man, I just dealt with this code, my culprit was the vent valve line on the fuel pump, under the battery compartment. Mine had completely broken off, your's could be clogged or pinched. I found my problem by unplugging the line at the regeneration valve in the throttle body and blowing some compressed air into it.
  12. Hey all, I want to thank everyone's input and advice to tackling this problem, I have an update! I hope Loren or others can step in and give me some .02 and anyone else with this issue can hopefully learn from this. I replaced the vent valve, while inside the wheel well i also inspected all lines and connections, everything was nice and tight, and nothing looked cracked or broken. I buttoned everything up and reset the code, 60 miles later it came back. Discouraged and bummed I starting tracing the purge valve line from the engine towards the front, and i blew some compressed air into the line. I could hear air leaking at the battery compartment. Pulled the battery out and looked at the fuel pump hoping to find something unplugged; of course that would be way to easy. I found this insted. The nipple on the fuel pump, that connects to the evap line, that connects to the purge valve, was completely broken off, and the line was just resting against the pump. My question to all, The part number is a "996 620 022 00" however pelican shows nada. Is this part of the pump or the sender unit? Can I this piece without replacing the entire pump? WHY IN THE HECK IS THIS PLASTIC?! Thanks to all who helped track this down, now i can't wait to get everyones option on how to fix it :)
  13. Sounds like a fuse to me, not sure which one, but I bet there's a separate fuse if your windows are rolling up and down.
  14. Pressed, you had the same error code? I'll pull the wheel liner and take a look at the valve, the car is a garage queen; so I's totally possible a spider has found a home in my vent valve. When would you hear the bottle blowing sound? Car on warm? Shutting car off? A few people talk about a gas cap suction test, but i couldnt find anything on how exactly that test works. Porschedane, do you have a link to the one you bought or used? all the ones I've seen the nozzle is too big to put a piece of house over.
  15. DB this help tremendously, Is there anyway to test either or both valve with 12 volts? I have a Durametric, is there anything i can test with that to help narrow the problem or test the valves?
