Hey crew, hoping you can point me (and likely my mechanic) in the right direction with this. My 2003 C4S with 65,000 miles makes a ticking noise sporadically, coming from the rear passenger side. The frequency of the ticking is tied to my speed, and starts around 6 MPH and up. At that speed it probably ticks about 10x per second. The sound only occurs when the clutch is engaged. It seems to happen more often when I build up some speed (around 10+ MPH), then let off the gas. Here's a recording of the sound. It's a little hard to hear over the engine, but listen at the following second points: 0:15-0:19, 0:22, 0:25-0:31, 0:37, 1:06, 1:12-1:13. http://www.mosney.net/porsche/porsche-996-ticking.m4a Bonus points: there's another sort of whirr/insect-like noise that occurs at seconds 0:35, 1:04. 1:18, 1:25. That seems to happen when I'm decelerating from around 15 MPH, but I'm pretty sure I hear it at higher speeds as well when I'm driving by parked cars or a wall. Maybe not related, I'm just trying to check these things off one at a time. Thanks for any help! Jonathan
Hi Porsche enthousiasts! I am reading a lot since a few days on these forums, especially the 986 ones there i am a fresh owner since march of this year. There my Boxster is driving perfect i am wondering about a weird noise at cold startup and sometimes but not often after a restart after e few houres of driving. I have already asked this at two Porsche specialist over here but none of them are able to tell me exactly what it is. The only thing they do telling me is not to worry about and to drive the Porsche wihout sleepness nights. The first one is sure that the noise is well know also on the 996 engines and will not go away and not will harm my engine eighter. The second one thinks about the timing chains but also, nothing to worry about. I don't now what to believe or todo with it. I want to know where the noise is coming from so here is the link of a soundclip attached. The noise is on the driver side and at cold startup for a few seconds, than it goes away and my car is running perfect. Hope someone can help me over here. Thanks a lot guy's !! Startgeluid_Motor.mp3
