  1. Car has a little shy of 25K. As per the IMS. I have no experience with the IMS problem except for reading about it. But as I understand it is shaft failure and the engine basically seizes. But in the case Engine is now running fine after the strange sounds, rough idle and burning some oil. So could it be the IMS or may be it is the spark plugs/coil issues etc. Not sure. Thanks.
  2. Dear Porsche Lovers, I have has my 997S (05) for about 6 months now. I drive it once a week or and yes I am spirited drivers. So far no issues. However this morning when I started the car, it started off with some strange klanking noises in the engine, un-even engine idle, nasty smell, (I think it was burning the oil) and then the check engine light came on (Flashing) along with 'Visit repair shop' on display. At the same time idle started to normalize, smell dissipated. However I turned the car off immediately. Waited for about couple of minutes and started it again. This time started o
  3. When I bought my C2S it had 21K on it. They had to fix the RMS issue and I had them look at the clutch. The dealer told me that the clutch is 80% intact and no need for a replacement. It all boils down to, how you drive. 21K and 80% intact means, it can go over 100K if driven in a similar fashion.
  4. Folks, I have a 05-C2S with a Sport Chrono Package. My car has a very nice and pleasing growling engine sound, specially when I start and hear the sound reflections in the garage. Is it possible that I have some sound mod done or my car has a sport exhaust. I don't think it does, but I thought I check around. Thanks Noor.
  5. Thanks for all the reply's folks. Honestly this sounds like a noise from inside the cabin and not from outside. It is almost in your face. Adjusting the steering wheel in real time does away with the sound for a while. In fact for last 2 days there is no sound. It sound almost like that TSB I am pointed to. Let me follow the TSB, do the fix and see if it goes away. If not then trip to a dealer. Thanks again for all the pointers. This forum and the people are awesome. Noor.
  6. Folks, Has any one experienced a creaking/squeaking (not rattling) noise around the steering column of their 05 C2S or other similar car? It happens on slight uneven road surfaces. Not always though. Sort of random in nature. The quick temp fix so far has been to readjust the steering wheel, (up/down or backward/forward, sort of randomly) and the noise disappears. but then it would reappear again in the same very position on the next run. It is not a loud sound and seem like it is coming from inside the cabin, like almost 2 surfaces rubbing against each other. There is no impact on the han
  7. OK. So here is my personal experience with our family 06 Cayenne S that my wife drives. All gas mileage, engine quirks and greatness of the car, in terms of power, acceleration etc and others issues that are being talked about aside, the one SINGLE reason I love this car is because it may have literally saved my family's life. Late last year, my wife was driving, with I on the passenger seat and my 2 boys (5 and 6 then) in the rear seats. We were in the middle lane on i680 going North bound at about 70+MPH. There was a honda accord in fast lane little ahead of us on the left side driven by
  8. Folks, My 06 Cayenne is almost out of warranty. 49K miles. I plan to keep the car as there is nothing else like that on the road. My wife loves it. 2 different bay area dealers have quoted me between 4K and 5K for Platinum extended warranties. The car has been pretty much trouble free so far. Nothing major. Navi was replaced once and the Xenon lamp leveling system another time. Engine, trani, suspension, no issues and in very good condition. Can anyone recommend a good company I can buy my warranty from along with how much should I expect to pay for something like 3 year 36K miles type
  9. Got the car today. This thing is a riot. Way better then my previous 00 C4 Cab. Will post pics soon. Thanks again for all the help. NL.
  10. Good deal Noor, very similar to what I drive! Warranty is an excellent bonus you're getting with the car! That's one thing I wish I got. congrats if you buy it, put up some pics Sam Make sure the extended warranty is really transferrable. some of them require the approval by the insurer. When I bought mine I had a PPI also and had work done by the seller which the policy covered. I called the warranty company (Great lakes) to do the transfer ( I think there was a $150 fee). Well a couple of days later I get my payment and transfer application back in the mail. They turned down the tr
  11. Folks, I am getting back into 911's (yeah baby). And about to purchase a 05 997 C2S coupe. Fully loaded, Navi, Bose, Sport Chorno, 6 Speed. with 21K miles on it and solid mint condition. Local car. Upon inspection by a local Porsche dealer they found the RMS leak, which is being fixed under the extended warranty that the seller has. 3/36....till end of 2011 or 56K miles. paying 44.5K for it. From my research it sounds like a good deal and we have a deal. Wanted to put it out there to reaffirm. Also anything else I should be looking out for? I have read about the IMS issue, but my unders
  12. Just got BridgeStones RE750's in my C4. Coming from Conti's, absolutely awesome tire.....and 30% cheaper then Conti's
  13. Hi, Things have been fine since then. No Clunking or burnt smell noises. I have driven about 500 miles since then and no issues so far. Smooth as a butter. Good Luck. Noor.
  14. Update: Dec 21st. Picked up my car today from Carlson Porsche. They couldn't duplicate the problem or sound and neither could I. No faults were stored. Check Engine light was MAF sensor which they replaced under warranty. Also the coolant expansion tank was leaking which I had always suspected and they replaced that under warranty as well. Only time will tell if that sound caused any damage to the engine. So for now I will not loose sleep over. Enjoy my car as it is simply a blast. Also got the Oil/Filter replaced. Dealing with service dept at Carlson Porsche (Redwood city) has been
  15. Update: So I started my car again in the evening and it started and ran flawlessly. No more sounds of anykind. I took for a brief run and no sounds. Again tired this morning and no issues at all, nice smooth, no funky sounds and no erratic idle. Check engine light however stays on. Will get that checked on Monday. So I am really not sure what the heck happened, but it certainly was strange. May be the oil didn't build pressure in time to make it to the valve lifters. No sure. My worry is, if somehow I have managed to damage the engine, shorten the life in any form or way. I do
