So call me a nervous nelly, but in the past month i've done more maintenance then my entire ownership of the CTT. The latest is the stupid Coolant Tees. I got it out and have my aluminum Tees on order. But what else should i do while i'm at it, if anything? Expansion Tank? Original tank, 130k on it Expansion Cap? Replaced at 125k Coolant Pipes? Replaced with aluminum ones at ~80k Water Pump? Replaced at ~67k. How long do these normally last? THermostat? Never Replaced, 130k on it Coolant Tees? Replacing now with aluminum ones. Anything i missed? It only takes me maybe an hour to pull the manifold these days. It's just annoying. I hate to just throw parts at my car, but i really don't feel like doing a water pump next week or something. Any experience or feedback would be appreciated.
Am I unlucky.. :huh: Seems that after fixing my oil level sensor, I've found that the coolant pump squeaks when the car warms up. I've localized the noise to the pump rather than the idler pulley so it is looking like I'm going to have to get it replaced. 56k miles seems awfully early for the water pump to die. :censored: Has anyone seen Porsche fix these outside of warranty (or discount?)? Alternatively, does anyone have any experience with the DIY replacement? I've done it on my 996 (1999) so am wondering if it is more or less difficult? I've read that it is supposed to be more accessible, but the workshop manual seems to indicate removing the entire engine carrier plate on the rear of the engine. :help:
