That's all ? Only 1cylinder
Good for you! Congrats! Just wondering if you considered the Jaq F-Pace ? Anyone have first hand experience owning one?
Lewis is right, I’ve had all those in his list failed and repaired while under warranty (bought 2 yr extended). I know it’s difficult and annoying but it’s in your best financial interest to let go of that Porsche ! I honestly believe they don’t make P-cars to last. They look great and give you a symbol of status but don’t plan on keeping it longer than 5-7 years. You’ll regret it. Sell it while it still has some value.
How much will it cost all in, including shipping? What if your trans, diff or uber expensive electronic part fails next ? I'd be hard pressed to justify the cost and time with that process.
She's dead Jim. Take her our back, put her to rest. Move on. Link to my 2004 V8
ventuje replied to clarksongli's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)My 04 S acted that way, turned out cracked cylinder #3 wall. No idiot lights or anything. Ended up with large paperweight :cursing:
Yea, it seemed pretty odd to have such a failure with absolutely NO warning signs & no idiot lights came on either. Car always ran real strong and smooth! If you dig around on the internet you can find quite a few similar issues with cracks in cylinder walls (alusil). I spoke with a 928 guy who can fix scores in the walls but if they weld a crack, it usually will re-crack near the weld (the weld holds just fine). So I suppose I need to find a salvage motor or see what I can get at wholesale. Thanks for the info!
A few weeks back, my 2004 C4S with 82,000 engine failed. Always dealer maintained at proper intervals. About 8 months out of extended warranty. Was coming home one night, started to stutter, then just quit like the engine fell out ! No idiot lights or anything. Stealer wants 30k to replace engine! Bore-scope revealed missing piston in cylinder 3 (yea, gone!) and visible crack in cylinder, coolant and metal in oil. Any ideas on best approach to get Porsche NA to own up and do the right thing? If not, any idea where/how to get rebuilt short or long block or iron-sleeved? Anyone know of a good indy shop? I'm located in Southern New Jersey. Thanks for the advice

Yeah, same situation. Bought 4 new Pirelli Scorpions (road force-twice) and still noticed vibrations. We tried all sorts of things, no luck. Since I'm not one to "jump" on new cars I can't bring myself to get a Cayenne, so I bought an extended warranty and just had the lower control arms replaced and some other stuff. Cardan shaft is next on the list. Haven't had the chance to drive it yet, so I'm not sure if it helped. Service rep said it felt better, but he's not sure the vibrations are totally gone.
ventuje replied to ventuje's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Anyone buy into Frozen Rotors? At around 29lbs per, I am seriously considering the lighter weight ones from JH Motorsports. They claim to be 9lbs lighter than stock! Kohan 22in wheels. No idea of the weight but I love them. I think they go perfectly w/ the car. Not too much! Yeah, They do look good!
ventuje replied to ventuje's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)nj9095, what brand of rims do you have and what size? Are you happy with them? Any idea of the weight?
I need to replace my stock front rotors on my 04S. Has anyone had good luck with aftermarket one? I was looking at ZeckHausen or maybe JH Motorsports. I'm curious about longevity of aftermarkets. Is Zimmerman the OEM?
That's good news! Perhaps they will warranty the cardan shaft too! (yea, right)
