gdv replied to Hobbes's topic in DIY Articles - Carrera (996) - Common Fixes and RepairsYes, common occurrence, your old defective AOS probably deposited a bit of oil inside your intake system and it is starting to come out. You can either let it burn off (may take quite a bit of time, depending upon how much oil is in there), or pull the intake system off an clean it. I cleaned the air distributors out while i was changing the AOS and on start up I didn't have much smoke, which then went to none very quickly. Then after about 8.5 miles it started smoking and air distributors have oil in them again. Same symptoms as before, with pouring smoke and rough running. Pulled the throttle body off and air distributors are full with oil again.
gdv replied to Hobbes's topic in DIY Articles - Carrera (996) - Common Fixes and RepairsI replaced my AOS, drove the car 8.5 miles without a flaw. Then it started pouring smoke out of the exhaust again and running rough. Any ideas?
