Recently I had been noticing issues with my cooling system the coolant temp guage would go past the 0 on 180 and I wouldn’t hear fans or anything. (Already tested fans and resistors and relays). The temperature Will continue to creep up if I sit still, with no signs of fans, AC OFF.
I replaced the coolant temp sensor. Problem fixed!! Then same issue again it seems after a week of driving.
Now i currently have ordered another temp sensor just Incase I maybe did something to cause the other new one too fail, I’ll be changing it again today.
However I was doing the climate control hack to check my actual temperatures today while doing a short troubleshooting drive. And I noticed my oil temperature said 0, which is physically impossible 🙄
Is it possible the oil temp guage is throwing off the coolant sensor? Is it even possible for the oil temp sensor too go bad but not the oil level sensor? (They are a 2 in 1 sensor)
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

Hi all, just purchased a 1961 notchback 1600s, I have never drove a Porsche until the day I purchased this car, got the bug now and i love Porsches more than ever now, the car is in very good shape, but i want to change all the fluids, grease all the parts, and do all the maintenance there is, the oil was so dark when I checked the level and it was all the way to max line of the stick, i would appreciate if you guys can tell me where to buy all the maintenance parts, and where can I buy the shop manual, and what are the things I should do, there is a small leak on the floor from engine very small, but a palm size of oil from transmission on the ground, thanks guys cheers😁
I have a 2007 C2S manual with about 132K on the odometer. A low oil pressure light has started to show up at idle after the car is warmed up. It seems as if the light is gradually coming on more frequently. The pressure gage on the dash reads around 0.5 bar when the light comes on. When the car is cold the starting pressure is around five bar and is about 3 bar at 3000rpm. As it warms up the pressure drops to about 2 bar at 3000rpm. I always run 0-40W Mobil 1 and change the oil every 5K miles. With the engine off and turning the key one click the pressure gage rises to about 0.1-0.2 bar.
Can anyone help me diagnose this issue? Would be a sensor or something mechanical?
I am new to this forum and first of all I would like to say that this site is the best for information on maintenance, repair and tips of all Porsche sites on the web.
I am currently a new owner of a 2010 Porsche Cayenne Base with 70,000 miles and so far except for the clogged cowling and a/c drains that i fixed (thanks to this site) it has been the best car I have owned. My question is, the owners manual says that the ATF should be changed every 160,000 miles or I think 12 years. Is this safe or should I be doing it more often regardless of what they say. What do you experienced owners recommend, I Love this car and I want it to last as long as possible. All previous maintenance had been done at the stealership and I don't see any record of them changing the ATF before I got it. Thanks In advance.
Hi. The title is probably self explanatory. If I get a used diff, is it just plain risky, or can it be understood whether the thing is one of the good ones or not before I replace my noisy one with it?
Much thanks for any insight.
