  1. Hello all, I am happy to report that my 03 cab was the recipient of a miracle healing. No more check engine light, and it runs like a scalded cat. However, I have discovered that the rear passenger carpet is quite wet. We have had a great deal of rain in the last week. Any ideas on where the leak might be coming from? I see no obvious source. As always, thank you for your continued patience and expertise. Thanks again, Roy Parnell
  2. Thank you for responding to my predicament. I will follow your advice.
  3. I suspect coil packs are the problem. Is there a code fault reader other than Durametric that can confirm this? Anyone know if AutoZone or Advance Auto will check fault codes, and will their equipment confirm a cracked coil pack? Again, I thank you for any help.
  4. I live in Cheraw, South Carolina. I need someone with a Durametric nearby willing to let me read error codes. I will come to you. Check engine light just came on. I am willing to pay you for your kindness. Thank you.
  5. I have a situation with my 2003 996 Carrera. At exactly 2000 rpm, the oil pressure gauge fluctuates between 3 and 4 bars. At any other rpm this does not occur. Could it be a gauge or sending unit problem? I'm baffled by this and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  6. JFP I'm afraid you're right but don't really want to believe it. I think I'm going to continue driving and be alert for any further anomalies. Thank you for your input.
  7. Clutch is original and just turned 80,000 miles. No sign of slippage or noise. Only occurrence is the temporary change in pedal force seen only after winding engine to 6000 rpm or so. Perplexing!
  8. Clutch and brake systems flushed and refilled 2/9/15 by dealership. I had noticed this occurrence both before and after the service. Just wonder if I should be concerned, and trying to understand what could cause this. Thank you for your time.
  9. This is a rather strange occurrence. I have a 2003 Carrera Cabrio 996. After normal acceleration, the clutch pedal requires what I consider to be normal effort to depress. After running up to 6000 rpm when accelerating, the clutch pedal effort decreases somewhat. I have not detected any sign of clutch slippage or any other abnormality. My question is whether this is common, and whether it is an indicator of some undetected problem. I failed to mention that after a few minutes the pedal effort reverts to normal. Thank you in advance for any advice on this baffling occurrence.
  10. 03 Carrera Cab, Guards Red with black top and black leather interior. I love this car and am learning to do small repairs myself in order to somewhat lower the cost of ownership. I've had the car for 18 months and still love it. I have found the knowledge of renntech members to be invaluable. I dreamed of owning a 911 since the mid 80s when I had a 944. I rate the Carrera as 9/10. I have a couple of rattles I haven't been able to fix yet which keeps me from giving it a 10/10.
  11. It was a burned out bulb which I was able to replace in about 10 minutes. Thank you all for your willingness to help.
  12. Thank you all for your input. You guys rock! I hope that one day I may be able to help one of you in some way.
  13. I haven't checked anything yet. Just noticed it when I got home from work tonight. Thanks for your ideas. I was just throwing this out there for the Renntech braintrust.
  14. Hi, Tonight I noticed that the left turn signal indicator is blinking rapidly when I switch left turn signal on. This is happening on my 03 996 cab. Does anyone know what this rapid blinking indicates? Thank you in advance.
  15. Hi, The cupholder in my 2003 996 cab has broken. Does anyone know where I might find a used or refurbished replacement cupholder. Or at last resort a new replacement. Also anyone know where I can find diy on replacement process? Thank you in advance.
  16. Turned out the problem was the amp and not the CDR23. I bought and installed a refurbished amp and installed it and my problem was solved. Thank you all for your suggestions.
  17. Thank you both for your prompt replies. You have greatly relieved my mind. I was imagining all kinds of doomsday scenarios.
  18. Hello all, As I was putting oil in my 2003 996 cab today I noticed a yellow residue in the fill tube. The residue was the consistency of grease. I am scheduled for yearly service trip next Friday and would really like to know what this residue could be prior to taking my car in for service. My engine and power train warranty will expire in June so I am really interested in finding out whether this residue is a sign of something bad. Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  19. Thank you all for your input and for not pointing out my ignorance on this point. I swear to you I am usually good with mechanical repairs and upgrades. This little bugger just stumped me.
  20. I feel really dumb. I cannot get my oil filler cap to come off. Is there some secret word or spell I need to cast on it in order to remove it? Forgive my ignorance and thank you for your help. By the way, it is a 2003 996 cabriolet.
  21. Thank you Loren. I appreciate the tip as well as your willingness to share your knowledge.
  22. I'm sorry if I broached the rules of the forum or offended anyone.
  23. Would this amp also be the one I need to replace amp in 03 996 cabrio with cdr23 most not bose?
