If i had worked on anything on front end I would perform an alignment. The suspension, links etc. are so sensitive to any movements and for what an alignment cost i wouldn't hesitate.
Porschedane replied to leonidasb22's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I do t believe they are welded onto the flance. Just hit them hard with a hamme that should know them out.
Don't start the engine find the bolts first. Do you have a small mirror and some good lighting? They could have fallen in between some cover around the heads or something like that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Porschedane replied to Ronnie38's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Try with a magnet on a string if you have it do not rock or push the engine you may be lucky and catch it. Just make sure that the magnet is on a strong string so that doesn't fall off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Does it have the towing package? It could be the trailer hookup!

Porschedane replied to 356to966's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Would you also daily use the lighter plug to maintain the battery if you don't drive the car daily? Could it harm any of the sensitive electronics? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Porschedane replied to Paul Grainger's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Could it be the valve seals or piston rings? That's what i would think it could be, since you have had the AOS done! Mine doe's the same but only one out of 30 times when i start it. I'm not sure what it is, my local shop says not to worry.
Hey 01slvr996 I used an old vacuum hose as adapter some tape in between to reduce the size. I did it a couple of years ago I think it was a machine from party city. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
You should use a smoke machine to find the leak. I did on another car and fixe issue for under $100. I bought a smoke machine at a party store for under $40 and it worked just fine vs a $1000 professional machine Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Porschedane replied to singhmrp's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I build 2 ramps in 2x10 white pine. There are 5 steps first 78 inches long and the next 15 inches shorter the 3rd another 15 inches shorter and so on. I used long 3 inch deck screws to hold the ramp together but it's very solid. 5 steps up your car is always safe to get under and easy to change oil ect.I will try to post a couple of pictures in the next day or two.
