bzguy replied to The Radium King's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)having had similar 'hesitation' issue, I replaced the MAF & it solved all my problems ; I tried cleaning it first, looked like brand new, but if it's broke, you might not even see it.
BTW : I never had any CEL light on !
Hi guys, sorry, bit late with an update, had to wait for the replacement part :( Got a new MAF sensor, installed it (literally takes 3 minutes), all works perfectly right now : no hesitation anymore above 4000 rpm, all very smooth & linear :) ! Thank you for all the help, the MAF was the culprit ;)
bzguy replied to mtm81's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thank you for your reply JFP in PA. I suppose the only place where you can get this OEM stuff is @ Porsche dealer ?!
Durametric costs in Europe around 1000 $ (750 EUR)
bzguy replied to mtm81's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)What gear box oil is recommended ?
Can very much be Loren, since it's a universal cheap thingy ;) I'm awaiting my new MAF sensor, I'll keep you up to date on the news ...
I had an OBDII reader connected : no fault codes. Bt since MAF's fail quite some, I ordered a new one. Hope it fixes the issue.
Thanx Loren ; I checked my MAF, it's the right part number. How can I test/know if it's broken or not ? To avoid buying an expensive new one and finding out afterwards that there was nothing wrong with the previous one ;) I checked mine : it's 996 606 123 00 (and has a Mercedes logo on the connector connecting to it ;) )
Thank you for your reply Loren ! So it might be not a bad idea for both of us to lend a MAF (since they're pretty expensive) to try if there would be any difference ?! Btw : my MAF has a Mercedes logo on it, I'll check on the item number. Mine is a 1998 C2. Have it for 1 month now, I'll open a separate topic on it. Greetings from Belgium, this forum has helped me IMMENSELY fixing small issues & doing maintenance :) !
Loren, I have a similar issue : some stumble on WOT, perfectly fluent under around 4000 rpm. Checked the MAF (that's the one @ the airbox, right ?), cleaned it, looks ok. I removed it & test drove without MAF : nothing changes :( If it's a bad MAF, how come that there's no stumble in lower rpm ?
