2010 C2S 108K miles I was planning to replace the plugs. I went to remove the mufflers. They were very corroded - especially the two I do not have to remove. I used penetrating oil (acetone + AFT). They are much prettier, but they are still corroded. Here is a 1 min video of the bolts so you can see what I am facing: Questions: If I get started on removing them and it does not go well, what next? Surely I don't have to replace the catalytic converters? Are the bolts somehow replaceable? Do they look too far gone?
Well, I have an engine that needs to be worked on. However it is on the floor and I need it to be on the engine stand. How do I go about strapping this thing down so I can move it ??
I am almost there with the Brake job on my project. One problem though. How do I connect the hard brake line to the caliper? I have connected the soft brake hose line from the hard line coming from the master cylinder area. However the hard brake line (small curved piece with red cap) doesn't seem to line up to the connector on the caliper. Do I bend it and make it fit or is there an actual part to order. Here are some pics. I tried to find good steel lines but have been having a hard time finding some blue ones.
Guys, I am seeking for some help on my 997.1 C2S (2005). 2 months ago, when I was driving my car in the city (low speed), after turning round the corner suddently all dash lights came on and followed by engine cut off. As there was no particular weir noise beforehand, so normal response I turned the key and the engine started but only for 2 seconds before it cut off again. From there, I realized that the rear floor was full of engine oil. The car of course ended up at my mechanic with engine off the car noticing that the IMS bearing was broken inside the housing but no visual damage seem to appear on the IMS itself. Anyway, to cut short I had the ims bearing replaced with taking the whole engine apart. After the repair I took the car for test drive, it seems running fine but when engine is cold, everytime I accelerate from zero, the throttle response feels a bit shakey and doesnt want to accelerate. However once the car has been warmed up, it is back to normal. Can someone please advise me what might be wrong with my car? Will it be sensor issue? It has only done 45,000km. Thanks
Greetings all and thanks in advance: I'm in the midst of shopping for my first Porsche, and decided on the 997.1 as a budding enthusiast. Im looking to get a 2005-2008 Carrera, preferably the 3.8, but I wouldn't cry if I got the 3.6. It's not an "if" I get it, but "when". First, I need help on pricing. I've completed detailed research on Edmunds, MotorTrend, NADA, Clearbook, and Kelley Blue Book, and eBay "completed sales " pricing, making certain to understand the differences in each (asking vs. final sales price, condition, etc.). If I'm offering cash, I figure its reasonable to get something with less than 50k miles for $35k out the door. If I get a warranty, tack 2 grand on that. Am i on planet Earth because all the pricing books say yes (Edmunds has Carrera at $32k and Carrera S at $34k), but dealer told me I was smoking crack when I said that. He said Porsche people always pay over (50k for Edmunds 35k car), because youre paying for the experience. I walked out after he said that, but want to double check. What did you all pay? Need some real life final sale prices if you don't mind sharing. Second, I've seen posts on PPIs. How do I find an independent mechanic for this; extra helpful for DC area recs. What maintenance should I expect in the first year. I looked at the Porsche recommended intervals and used AutoMD for quotes. What is true cost for oil change, spark plugs, brake fluid, etc. I want to keep this car for 10+ years....not planning on reselling. Third: I bought the 5th Ed. Batchelor and Leffingwell Porsche Buyers Guide and read the 996 & 997 sections. Anything else I should read? Lastly, I'm running the VINs in AutoCheck (bought unlimited 30 day..so I can help others looking). One car on Autotrader (Beechwood Dealer) is a retired PDE with 25k miles. Stay away? To see what I'm looking at, I search on all sites with these filters (year: 2005-2008, make/model: porsche 911, mileage: < 50k, price:<$45k, distance:any) Linwoodc3@mac.com. I can email the price breakdowns I came up with...4 slide PDF. MORE IMPORTANT : where should I drive when I get this ( road types)?
I have recently purchased and installed a set of front and rear "POWERFLEX" bushings kit for my 997.1 C2S and here is my comments. Regardless a few 996 type bushings were sent to me by mistake which my mechanic was able to solve with a bit of modification work done, the outcome seems okay so far with the ride feels quite a bit firmer than standard (of course lost a bit of comfort but can live with it). The major issue that attracted me was their kind of life time guarantee as the standard bushings on some areas doesn't seem to last very long. Anyway, I have noticed at the same time that from there every time when I drive slow on bumppy roads, the front end do have a slight rubbing noise which sound like rubber rubbing with rubber. May I ask if anyone who installed this onto their cars has similar issues?
Guys, One of my friend is urgently seeking for a set of Piston Rings for his 2006 997 C2S. I have been searching from the internet but found basically nothing so far. Can someone help by providing me some internet site which I can order quickly for him and arrange shipping within short period? Thankyou
Hi I need your help choosing what to buy. I have a 997 C2S -05 that the rotors and pads should be replaced on. Should you invest your money in original or go for an aftermarket solution e.g. Zimmerman or a other brand? Brembo is fine but very expensive I want drilled ones but should I even go for slotted? Are there any brand that have coating btw that prevent the discs to rust? Original is 330mm front! Is there any reason to go up in size? Hope for help from you knowledgeable Porsche friends
