Hi Vorragend, have you done any majot repair/replacement since you have 188K miles on your 04 V6? I have 05 V6 with 128 K miles and I've replaced the usual ones, drive shaft, coils, tailgate strut, fuel filter, check valve, crankcase valve, and horns, I've also replaced all fluids, transmission, front & rear diffferential as well as transfer case( I don't know if I really needed since I never use 4 wheel) I think I've listed everything other than the regular maintenance stuffs and brakes. I haven't yet to replace the battery, the original one, even after 128K miles and 8 1/2 years, as well as the drive belt. My car always ran fine except when it had issue with coils at 80K miles and recently involving the replacement fuel filter, check valve and crankcase valve Do you recommend any other maintenance stuff or replacement? If anyone else has comment, it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
mudman2, i've enjoyed reading your work here and those were really helpful. Do you know the location of purge valve in V6? Should I wait unitl next refuel to see if the same thing happens again? Btw, what OEM brand do you recommend for brake rotors and pads?
Hi All, Althought mine is V6, I thought that I ahve the same problem with purge valve. After I fueled the tank last Saturday, car wouldn't start right away but I din'd have to hit the gas pedal to start it. Once it started on second try, idling was really rough and I had to play with gas pedal to make sure it won't die on idle and between ths shift. Once I'm driving I really couldn't tell the difference than it was before, but it kept doing the same thing on restart. Car came back to normal after I've used of about a little less than 1/4 of a tank. I've used the generic scanner, CEL had come on when this happened, but the code I have is P0011 not P0441. Is the code P0011 related to P04441? or is it totally different issue. Also, just last week, I had changed the fuel filter which was really easy job with help form you guys around here. Thank you in advance for your comment.
I have 05 Cayennee V6, and I think I need to replace purge valve according to other posts here. After I had refuled the other day, idle was really rough and it would even die. After consuming about 1/4 of a tank, idle came back to normal and car drives fine. Is this normal with purge valve issue? As long as i don't have the full tank, is it going to be ok? I did see the tutorial on V8, but I think V6 is not the same. Does anyone know where is purge valve located and how to replace? Thank you in advance for any help.
