Oh wow! Yeah, mine sounded very similar to that. Hope Porsche helped you out a little on solving the problem. - Boomer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwN1B...ature=youtu.be
Lucy - Problem has been solved. I had a serpentine belt replaced about a month ago. When the belt came off, I had the car towed to the nearest imported auto repair (not my usual). They replaced the belt, idler arms and tensioner. In the process they didn't tighten the power steering pump back to the mount properly. This caused the unit to wobble which eventually (and in short order) caused the pully to make the clacking noise. Brought my baby to my normal mechanic who discovered the cause of the noise. Pully replaced. Power steering pump properly tightened. Problem solved. Cost: $300 P&L. Lesson learned: Take the car to your usual mechanic EVERY time regardless of the towing cost.
I've got an annoying clacking noise coming from my engine at idle on my 2008 Carrera 2S, 6spd. The noise seems to go away when the motor is rev'd. The car has 86K miles on it, but still runs very strong and uses no oil. Just had serpentine belt and idler arms/tensioner replaced, but noise still there. I've seen on other blogs where this is "normal." Any ideas on what this could be? Thanks in advance for inputs.
usaf.ammoguy replied to Hank's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Bur what hapens whan you want to make preference changes to the car itself that can only be done via the original equipment PCM; for example DTRL on or off?
No maintenance book with car. No sticker under the hood. Did discover that my washer fluid resevoir has a slow leak though. :cursing:
Unfortunately I don't have access to the options list....unless there is some way to tell from the VIN; I purchased the car pre-owned from a Lexus dealer.
Not sure what that is. I only know it does not have navigation or blue tooth capability.
@Loren. Thanks for the quick response, but it didn't help I'm afraid. My PCM looks like this:
Just acquired a 2008 Carrera 2S, but it came without owner's manuals. No problems finding the basic manual, but I need help finding the manual for the PCM - the one with phone buttons on it. Any suggestions?
