  1. Hi all, Just finished replacing the reverse switch (woo hoo, I have reverse lights)and I noticed a oil build-up in the area in front of the oil sump. I did alot of reading and have figured it to be the RMS, as some of the pics look just like my issue. My Q is this. Is it worth it to replace it? I mean I love a shiney clean engine but, at $800-$1,000 every so many miles I think I can use the 409 on it every now and then. Are there any big negatives known in the neglect of this repair? I of course bought this car recently, and have been taking care of the little odds and ends. But this ai
  2. Well that is a thought, allthough I must say I would much rather have it all done within a day or two. Besides I already have new Rossa's sitting in the garage. There has to be some Porsche's here, I'm just not seeing'em. I have already met a few people here that know of a Porsche Guru. Believe you me, I am trying to make contact with him.
  3. Well, Thanks again. Things went well changed two clamps and hit the v belt all in one go. Hopefully all will go well tomorrow replacing the reverse light switch, and checking on a bit of oil I noticed at the front center of the engine. If you have any words of wisdom on that please do tell. Jim
  4. Ok, I just did not want to make a mess if it was avoidable as this is the big hose that goes up the drivers sided to the front. and I'm really not sure how much fluid to expect? The clamp where the hose goes onto the pipe is the problem(thank God, easy fix). I'll go do it now, outside, in Kansas City, 30 degrees, with a 15mph, crosswind, can't risk messin in the garage! Doh I forgot to ge some coolant while I was at the dealers today! Thanks again.
  5. Thanks for the help guys :clapping: It took me all of 8 minutes to do the full job less re-instaling the airbox. I had the same issue wit not having a 24mm, but it equates to a 15/16ths and all was well! Also did some cleaning, and well now I am trying to complete the original reason I noted this needed replacing. How do I get the coolant out of this engine??? :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: you guys rock!
  6. Please someone help me I just got oil on my hands attemptin to drain some coolant from around the thermostat housing!?! I remember reading somewhere in here "of course I cannot reproduce the thread" that there is a nut on the bottom of the engine that will allow you to drain off enough coolant to replace a hose or whatnot. Please help! :cursing: :cursing: :soapbox: :soapbox:
  7. Hi well for the time being I am in Kansas City. I would like to be able to link up with a couple of owners and share recepies, and info like where I can get my 19" staggered 3pc. Champion wheels tires changed without them getting scarred as Big O Tires did to my last set of 19" only $2800 for the set wheels. Ouch.
  8. That's great man! I would like to be the one with that joy! I am shopping around for a good setup for some nice deep notes. I'm not all into trying to make this the fastest car alive nor the loudest but I do so love the the deep grumbling at idle and and nice deep pitc`h throughout the powerband without hitting Nascar ranges as I like to hear my stereo and I am currently dynalining my cabin. to try and reduce the motor resonance in the cabin. I 'd like to know a bit about the GHL setup where you got it and the cost. Jim :clapping: :clapping: :clapping: :clapping: :clapping: :cl
  9. Hi, I haved the back of my 99 C2 opened up checking on a coolant leak and well the serpentine belt look very cracked on the ribbed side so I am wanting to change it. Is there anyone who can tell me if there are any special precautions with aligning any pulleys I should be careful for? Or does anyone know of a DIY on this? Also how to find the part #? Thanks and Happy New Year!
  10. Hi, my 6 speed had the same thing when I got it. I was able to balance out the difference by driving and adjusting as recommended by the guy I bought it from. There was more travel into certain gears then other. It was not a problem until I noticed that certain gears weren't engaging fully and occasionally would not stay in gear. With the problem of hitting a little something when heading into gear, I adjusted the blue connector until I got a uniform engagement (note this is with the engine off), then I started to adjust the black cable I tried for and hour and felt as though I was chasing
  11. Hi, never did it with a 911 before but yea I have done a few. It is a pretty basic thing much like hooking up a power antenna line or amplifier turn on lead. Your unit should measure the output from the wire and adjust the sound of the unit to compensate for that lovely engine purring. Myself I would just skip it and enjoy the sound of the engine! I'm not sure if my stereo adjusts to the speed, but if you know yours did then you'll already have the wire there at the head-unit. Nonethe less I'm sure as soon as everyone sobers up someone will help you out as the wire is in the 911's somewhe
  12. Well, there could be an issue with the resivoir, but if you look closely at the picture in the top left corner you'll see the hose with a jagged crack in it.
  13. Well I have put the pics in my yahoo. photo album as I really don't know any other way to do them. http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/sin7_2000/al...m/ph//my_photos
  14. Hi I edited it to show and I'll reply also It is a 99 C2. You're The Loren I keep seeing everywhere, Thanks for your assistance looks like you really know your way around a Porsche. I'm gonna try and pick it up as soon as I can hopefully on my own terms not by emergency repair like this could of been. Anyways eager to hear your thought's. Jim
  15. Can anyone help me to get the part numbers or even identify a hose on my 99 C2. I will describe and try and get pics of it. The hose looks as though it had suffered and earthquake, there is the obvious crack line but it looks as though the rubber has been cooked and started to shrink and peel away. Kinda like when you see people paint their cars where it looks like the metal has been ripped by something. I'll try and get good pics. I know I was reading throught the DIY (researching coolant tank problems as I was told there was an issue with them)and saw something with a diagram of the hos
  16. I read something about cutting out a diode in the PSE for a throaty sound but I am not in the know. Is the sport exhaust standard on Porsche's or a option above the standard? And if an option how would I know if I have it? Thanks, and Happy New Year too all!
