philhan replied to Carrera's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I'm a little above 96,000 miles and I have changed the oil at around 6,000 miles. I had a recent oil analysis done at Blackstone and the results came back very positive---with no fuel or coolant in the oil and all the other stuff looking "good." Under comments they wrote that my engine is "nice wearing." I also did a TBN analysis and it came back at 5.3---meaning that there is a lot of active additive remaining in the oil. When it reads 1.0 it's too low. They suggested that since I am close "to average levels for engine wear, we suggest you could try a 7,000 mile oil change."
Hi Loren: Thanks for the quick replies. Did as stated and nothing. Still getting the same codes: P1602--factory fault code 108--Power Supply Open Circuit 24, 31, 3, I don't know what I did to cause all this. Any other ideas Loren or do I have to visit the dealer? Thanks
Today is just not my day. I was messing with my fusebox just to make sure that it wasn't just a blown fuse. I don't know why but then I disconected my battery. I re-connected everything and then I try to start my car and it is totally dead. I turn the key and the engine is not turning over at all. Now I get a bunch of fault codes: fault code #: 3, 24,25, 31, and P1602--Power supply open circuit. HELP
Hi Loren: Thanks for the info. Where will would I find this thing? Also, if it is bad what thing would I have to replace?
Iginition switch is ok. I ran the Durametric code reader and it throws up Fault Code 31: Motor, fresh air-fan voltage too low or voltage too high. I checked the fuses but could not find one for the motor fresh air fan. Anyone know?
Don't know...but same thing happened to me in my Land Rover...but then I realized it was in Kilometers not miles maybe this is the case with yours?
philhan posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)So I just did an oil change myself and felt sort of like a man. MY99 with about 96K miles on the odo and I'm driving today feeling sort of proud that I didn't screw up the oil change and how there's nothing wrong with the car....of course then I notice the air conditioner is not working or rather the fans are not blowing. I stop turn the A/C on and off and it looks like it is working, check the front radiators and they are blowing, but no matter what I push the fans are not blowing. Any ideas as to what might be the problem?
philhan replied to nylewis's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)sorry to hear...how many miles on the engine?
Thanks Loren! Happy Holidays everyone! :cheers:
Ever since I found this forum I've been doing all maintenance services and even some mod installs myself. I plan on doing a brake flush and an oil change for my "minor service" and was looking at the check list that dealers used for the minor service and they state that they lubricate hood, doors, and deck lid hinges. I was wondering what type of lubricant they use. Anyone know? Thanks!
Seems like there's some seepage. No drops on the garage floor or anything and it doesn't look too bad. But I was under the car installing my fabspeed by-pass pipes and noticed some oil. I took a pic of it. Anyone know where it might be coming from? Thanks!
philhan replied to philhan's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hey Loren: Sorry if i wasn't clear but here are the values: Stage 1: 14500 :drive: Stage 2: 140 :( 140 sounds like a lot. Engine has a little over 91,000 miles on it and feels strong.
philhan posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Ok I received the Durametric code reader today and it's pretty cool. Able to diagnose and clear my check airbag light. I was fooling around with it and checked my "actual values" and it states this: That I have redlines 14500 times and that I have EXCEEDED redline 140 times. I drive the car hard and usually do take it up to redline but rarely do I hit the limiter and to my knowledge I don't think I overrevved the engine a 140 times....I mean that would mean the engine would have some pretty serious damage right? Anyone else experiencing these values with this reader? Phil
philhan replied to P2C4's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Update: Sprayed the seat belts, and all connectors underneath the seats two days ago with Deoxit D5. I received the Durametric reader today. Airbag fault code is 45: Driver side seat belt buckle unplugged. Checked everything underneath and everything looked ok so I cleared the code and so far it has not come back on. So everything so far is ok. GREAT TIP :notworthy:
