  1. If you dont plan to do the rebuild yourself I recommend Jake Raby at http://www.flat6innovations.com/ or Don Weaver at https://www.ebsracing.com/
  2. I am looking for the black electrical connection that is shown by the green arrow in the photo. The tab that secures the connection to the male side molded onto the top of the fuel filter snapped right off as I applied pressure to take it off. Thanks in advance to anyone who knows part number and where I can get it. It looks like a standard connection with a release that can be taken off and another put back on the wires. This is on a 2008 Cayenne base model with a V6.

  4. 182k miles on '03 before the IMS failed late last fall. It was not the IMS that failed but the installation was incorrectly completed. So really ask around if the shop/mechanic has the experience and certification he claims to have.....
  5. Do you have a the manual for the 2008 Cayenne?


  6. Finaly found something on Google: An online supplier list a conversion kit that has the brackets, hoses, bolts.
  7. 1987 2.5L base 944 coupe: Wondering if anyone has seen this type of install for an A/C compressor- In May the Las Vegas Region PCA (LVRPCA) arranged for members to receive an assessment of their car compliments of Trophy Performance. After getting the car on the lift and raised the first thing the mechanic pointed out to me was, "I don't know what that A/C compressor is supposed to go into, but it isn't a Porsche 944." Another mechanic confirmed his observation. The accessory drive belt (crank pulley, AC, alternator) is also longer than the OEM belt and about 1/3 the
  8. I took that course last February. Jake and Tony are great instructors, the professional techs taking the course were all very patient with us 'enthusiast, and the facility is really, really cool. Jake mentioned something about getting a book out about rebuilding. Hoping he gets it published soon.
  9. Here's another "I did it!" success post! Many thanks to: Hobbes for the original DIY AOS post; to Ahsai for his post ('MkII AOS DIY Sanity Check') regarding the procedural differences for the MkII engine; and the many other users who have posted about their AOS replacement experience . Especially thanks to Loren et al who created and maintian this resource! If it hasn't already been done, I would suggest that the link to Ahsai's post be added to the Hobbes original DIY post. The search function didnt return Ahsai's MkII post; it was just 'blind-luck' that I found it while wandering throu
  10. Ahsai,, I also have a 2003 C2 (a Cabriolet). I am experiencing a challenging removal of the final bolt of the upper air intake. It seems that the round face of the AOS sits directly above the bolt head. Can you please share how you removed that bolt? And to clarify, my AOS is the newer part that does not have a bellows. I see too that the older AOS that has the bellows has two bolts that are horizontal into the block; the newer AOS has two mounting bolts that are positioned vertically into the block.
  11. lakeview: I learned the same thing about the Bentley manual.....Somewhere in this forum I did find a post about using a voltmeter to test the crankshaft sensor; sorry I don't remember where I found it. But I did pull the sensor and it was not in the range it should be. I replaced the sensor and the car then started. It took a couple of attempts, I guess the fuel system needed to prime or recharge.
  12. Odd coincidence, I'm experiencing a similar issue. On the drive home from work on Monday the car ran fine, no issues. When I went to start up this morning, it will crank but will not start. I hooked up the Durametric and found there were no codes. When I ran the 'Short test all modules' under the 'Function' tab it did its thing and returned these values. 21 W lead (DME Immobilizer) 49 K lead 60 Control locking limit position lock not reached 54 Radio receiver defective 33 Interior sensor faulty 18 Pressure sensor lumbar open circuit I have been l
  13. I replace that part every year when the summer temps break into the triple digits; usually late June or early July.
  14. Loren, Could you please tell me which test I can run with the Durametric and what I should be looking for? I ran everything I saw that looked remotely linked to the fuel system. Biggest challenge is I'm not familiar with what I should be looking for to detect a leak. I would take it to your local Porsche shop and tell them that you've replaced the gas cap but you suspect a leak in the fuel tank ventilation system. If they have a PIWIS they can do a leakage test and pinpoint the problem - a frequent culprit is the fuel tank ventilation system which If you are a DIY person read this: htt

  16. I found and followed the post in the DIY section to fill the cabrio top pump with pentosin. I ran into something interesting in that my pump looks nothing like the pictures from the DIY post. I purchased the Bentley manual and I have the service manuals I purchased from Porsche Librarian; neither of those show the pump I have. As you can see from the pictures, my pump is rotated 90 degrees clockwise, with the resevoir tank pointing at the nine o'clock position. I included one picture from the DIY article that shows the pump and tank in the 12 to 6 position. The lines also attach at differ
  17. Experienced this code and tried a new gas cap; just got the code again this past weekend. Is there a method by which I can isolate which part of the ventilation system is leaking or just 'pick-and-replace' until I get the right one? Tim 2003 996 C2 Cabriolet
  18. Sorry to hear about the collision; I've been hit twice too. The first was another driver's ignorance of basic physics (only one object can occupy any given point at a given time); the second a rear end while waiting at a stop sign. I've had that experience where a large truck in front of me began backing up. I was fortunate that I stopped far enough behind it that the driver heard my warning horn and stopped in time. I've wondered how it would go if he had backed into me and then claimed I rear-ended him?
  19. Bill, Thank you for your input. Fortunately, I won't have to incur a $30 expense to get a manual as Porsche was thoughtfull enough to include a free copy with the purhcase of the car; I thought I was lucky to get them to throw in the floor mats. However, what about the sentence immediately preceeding the three bullet points included in your post? "If the engine fails to start after 10 to 15 seconds of cranking: " This sentence is from page 66 too, two carriage returns above those bullet points you quote. Because of a colon at the end of the sentence, which usually is used to define a
  20. I've received two very different, though equally assertive, views about the starting procedure for my 996: start the car car and go, keeping under 4.5k RPMs for five minutes; the second is the 'old school' practice of letting the car idle until it has 'warmed'-up' before driving. I'm just wondering what other member's method is as their start-up practice?
  21. I would like to add my gratitude to everyone at the site who has patiently shared their Porsche knowledge. Have a great 2011. Tim Las Vegas
  22. Here is the link: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?app=downloads&module=display&section=download&do=confirm_download&id=607 If that doesn't work, go to the menu just below the Renntech banner and mouse over the 'DIY Menu.' Scroll down and select the 'Porsche TSBs' link. On the first page that loads you'll have to select your model, then page through the bulletins until you find the TSB number. TSB 2469 I think is on the fourth page. Tim.
