Sorry, I did not update this! It sure enough was from the rear of the motor, beyond the aluminum coolant tubes.... So this was another $2k job! Now I have this problem where I fill up with gas, start the car and it tries to start and turns off, then on the second try it starts fine and every other consecutive time it starts fine. Also my range only says 280 and usually its 400miles after filling up. p0441 and (I think-I reset it and forgot the other code) p0445 codes are on.
Thanks guys for the response, so this is costing the same amount as the coolant tubes did because it's in that precarious area where you need to take off the intake manifold.... sound about right? ridiculous. P.S. I know one of the T's was the problem. I was told it was a hose back there, after the aluminum pipes that caused the majority of the problem.
Hey Guys, I wanted to see if anyone has heard of this before. I changed my coolant tubes to aluminum after the first leak. About three weeks ago, I had another massive coolant leak. My 04' Cayenne Turbo went back to the shop since I know I couldn't tackle it. This time I was told it was a rubber hose in the rear of the motor after the aluminum coolant tubes. Has anyone had this problem? Anyone hear of this happening? I just had to roll with the punch. $$$$.
Thanks, so I'm missing 14, 15, 16, 17. Is it just a drip/air tube?
Hey, So yesterday I tackled my serpentine belt, I was driving a couple of days ago and then boom, lost power steering and noticed my belt was completely shredded, ordered the belt, two days later, replaced it myself and saved a lot of money. While doing this, I noticed I am missing some tubing, and this is most likely why my CEL is on (P0441 If I remember the code correctly, which is a boost leak/vacuum leak most likely). When my belt snapped, I think it took out some tubing, and now I am missing the rest of the tubing and have checked the diagrams in the mechanic manual but haven't found anything. Where does this tube go to? It comes off of the intake splitter y pipe and has a sensor connected to it early on in the tube. I have a 04 Cayenne Turbo, and in the picture I am pointing to it. Tube leads down near the serpentine belt keep in mind. Also, it's one of those bendable tubes as well. Thanks a lot everyone for the help. Pic: .
Hey guys, jeeze my belt broke yesterday. What size bolt is the tensioner? What size wrench is that? I don't know what a/f 30 is? Thanks. Is that the only wrench we need from what I see?
Hey, So I am tackling the brakes myself. I just ordered PowerStop Brake pads (hopefully they are good) and new sensors. But I still have this P0441 code, I am only reaching .6 boost, which makes me think it's a boost leak. And.... I also am leaking a couple of drops of red fluid underneath.... which could be coolant. I was told that the coolant pipes were replaced from plastic to aluminum, so hopefully its not that... But anybody else have this problem? What could it be? Could it be two problems? Or do you think the small drops of fluid could be related to the boost leak? Thanks, - Reg.
Wow, thanks for the responses everyone. Now, I saw the little amount of reddish fluid when I was parked on a hill for three days. I've been checking it and I don't see any leakage when I parked on a flat road. I'm hoping it's not the coolant tubes because I was told that they were in fact changed. Also, anyone know the best way to find a vacuum leak on these motors? I have the P0441 code on.
Ya, I thought that coolant was usually green? Plus the tubes were changed from plastic to aluminum last year.
Hey, I know I have an Eisenmann exhaust, but I found this picture and they look exactly like the ones I have. Look to be 22" as well. http://www.millteksport.com/media.file.cfm?fileid=363#.UPcBKe3ti0s . Also, jeeze, my nav is saying I don't have the disk, and I am looking into taking out the whole unit itself and putting in a pioneer (had it in my last car and was great with ipod hookup). Also, theres some red fluid under my car from sitting three days.... transmission? so much work to do.
Hey everyone, I just picked up a 2004 Cayenne Turbo. I knew about the little quirks these cars can have, gave it some thought, and went through with the purchase. Two things, I have a P0441 code coming on which makes the CEL turn on. I'm currently doing the research in regards to this problem and might blow through the system to find where the vacuum leak is. Gas cap seems to be all good. Second thing is, my Cayenne came with 22" OEM looking rims. These wheels are the Cayenne turbo wheels, but I've done some research because to my knowledge, Porsche only made the Cayenne turbo wheels in 20", these that I have are 22". Anybody have some knowledge on this? Thanks.
