Let my son take the Cayenne to prom while I was out of town. Of course, it chose that moment to have a major issue. Engine started running very rough. Died several times. We had the car towed home. Now it starts up fine, but idles very rough and will die after a minute. If you try to rev the engine in neutral it will make about 3K RPM before sputtering a bit and quitting.

I could really use some idea of what this is before I take it to my mechanic. Strangely, It was just in the shop two days before this incident having the rear drive shaft replaced. Could any of this be related? The car threw two codes which are gone now P2177 and P2179. Both related to "lean of peak at idle". There are no other warning lights or codes displayed.

Thanks for any help the members can provide.

Test the fuel pump pressure and volume. The Cayenne uses two fuel pumps with the main pump and filter unit being located under the left side rear seat, the secondary assist pump located on the right side.

Thanks to a little more research on this forum and the great tip of removing the fuel pump fuses one at a time, I was able to isolate the problem to the primary fuel pump. It's running fine now on the secondary pump. Does anyone know if it is okay to run on this pump for a while? I'm not going to be able to get to the fuel pump replacement for at least a week.

Wvicary, thanks for you comments. I assume right and left refer to exactly that as you view the pumps from the rear of the car. In the diagram online it sort of seems like the pump are fore and aft under the seat. Can you just confirm that the primary is the left pump (Driver's side) under the rear seat?

Thanks for the help and thank goodness for this forum.

View is always referenced from the driver seat ( left hand drive ) facing forward. The primary pump is the left pump and recommend changing the fuel filter module with pump replacement. Sorry I've no idea about operating solely on the right pump but would get the defective unit replaced asap.

If your gonna drive it for a while keep your fuel tank over 1/4 of a tank if running on just one but when your ready to change it stay close to home and run it down a little as less fuel will make it easier.

The truck just passed 90,000 miles. Seems like the drive shaft and the fuel pump picked the same week to expire.

Seems like there have been a lot of Fuel pump failures in the last few months. I just put my '06 on the lift last night to check the driveshaft (no reason, just taking a look) but I'm afraid if I look at it then it will fail, and that with all of these Fuel Pump failures that I'm jinxed :)

P.S. Hennessy just sent me the new '09 coil packs so I'm sure my old '05 ones won't fail anytime soon.

I had exactly the same issue after I replaced my coils and plugs. Believe it or not, after disconnecting the battery for some time the car run fine again. I would give it a try.

My 2006 Cayenne (V6) keeps dying at idle especially when stopping at a light.  I seem to be able to avoid it by keeping the accelerator slightly pushed in while holding the brake with the other foot.  The car has drive by wire so it seems to limit the revs until I release the brake. I replaced the ignition coils about 6 months ago and I did have a very rough idle and one broken coil.  I have looked through these fuel pump notations and I was thinking of checking the pressure on the lines.  I noticed that there are fuses to pull for the primary and secondary pump, is there anyone here that knows the system well enough to suggest next steps?

      I hate my pig but I love my pig, can anyone please help me before I send it for scrap. Over the space of the last 4 years of ownership my car has been in the Porsche dealers for 2 years in total with suspension problems, to cut a long story short this is now sorted and was due to a faulty replacement air bag being fitted. Moving on after 3 months of (almost) trouble free motoring this is what’s happening now and would love some advice as the closest porsche dealers is over 200 miles away from me.

      When I picked up the car from Porsche  it ran out of petrol before I got to the garage at the end of the road and although I filled it up it  the engine warning light remained on I assumed this was just fuel related and drove home with it on and reset it when I got home.
      Wind on a few weeks and the engine light came back on and gave me a camshaft position sensor error p0016 so I sent the car to my local Porsche mechanic who changed out the sensor and did a full service on the car including plugs filter oil etc etc. All this time the car has been running fine but as I wanted the sensor light out it was changed. However after changing it out the light came back on almost straight away. The car has been a bit sluggish to start sometimes and sometimes on pulling away from a stop has also been hesitant. 
      This was about 3-4 weeks ago and now it is worse again, at tickover it’s noisy, it doesn’t like acceleration and is running really rough although if you are going over 50mph it doesn’t have a problem and seems to run fine. The EML is now flashing rather than being a solid light. I attach a video of it running.
      Any thoughts would be a help before I decide to get it hauled back across again

      Recently had my air oil seperator replaced. At start ran a little rough now runs super rough and wants to stall. Changed 2 pre cat o2 sensors and mass air flow sensor. These are the current codes, 0112, 0300, 0301, 0302, 0303, 1316, 0102, 0130. Prior the car ran perfect and I cant believe I have all those cylinders misfiring because of plugs or coils. Please help

      Unfortunately, I am back with another problem or problems........
      A couple of days ago a check engine light popped up on my 997.2s and because it is my daily driver, I was not able to immediately diagnose the issue. I went ahead and ordered a "Carsoft POR II" scanner off amazon as i thought it would help my understanding in what the problem was. (Getting to the point.....)   Today while I was driving home from class, the car was running very rough. I decided to pull over and give the scanner a go...
      DME CODES;
      P0660 INTAKE PIPE SWITCHOVER FINAL STAGE
      P0153 02 SENSOR AHEAD OF CAT BANK 2 DYNAMISM 
      P2099 A/F  RATIO CORRECT. BEH. CAT. BANK 2 ABOVE RICH CONTROL UNIT
      P2198 02 SENSOR AHEAD OF CAT. BANK 2 TOO RICH SIGNAL
      P0174 BANK 2 TOO LEAN
      P0171 SYSTEM TOO LEAN
      P2196 02 SENSOR SIGNAL BIASED/ STUCK BANK 1 SENSOR 1
       
      Being the person I am, I went ahead and cleared the codes dreaming my problems would magically go away. ?
      About 10 minutes into my commute the codes again popped up but this time, there was something a bit different.......
       
      THE NEW CODES INCLUDED;
      P0174 SYSTEM TOO LEAN BANK 2
      P0171 SYSTEM TOO LEAN BANK 1
      P0306 MISFIRE CYLINDER 6
      P0305 MISFIRE CYLINDER 5 
      P0304 MISFIRE CYLINDER 4
      P0300 MISFIRE - TOTAL ERROR
      P0660 INTAKE PIPE SWITCHOVER FINAL STAGE
       
      About 2 months ago I installed a new O2 sensor bank 1 sensor. While at it, I had a new AOS installed as well ( OEM parts). There are some theories I have in mind but as for now, I am truly stumped on this issue. Does anyone have any experience with this madness?! Thanks for reading! ?
       
      This morning I started my car again and a puff of white smoke shot out of the tail pipes. The smoke did clear up really quick. 
       
      MORE NEW CODES;
      P2A04 O2 SENSOR CIRCUT RANGE/ PERFORMANCE BANK 2 SENSOR 2
      P2099 POST CATALYST FUEL TRIM SYSTEM TOO RICH BANK 2
      P0153 O2 SENSOR CIRCUIT SLOW RESPONSE BANK 2 SENSOR 1
      P2198 O2 SENSOR SIGNAL BIASED/ STUCK RICH BANK 2 SENSOR 1
      P0171 SYSTEM TOO LEAN BANK 1

      Due to leaking I recently changed my coolant reservoir tank, which involved disconnecting and re connecting 2 fuel lines..  Upon restarting the car I had a rough idle and CEL.  I purchased a $100b code reader, read a bunch of stuff online and decided to clean the MAF sensor, change the air filter, spark plugs, plug tubes and coils.    
       
       
      upon today's startup I get an erratic/rough/low rpm idle, flashing CEL and the following codes:
       
      P0102  mass air flow circuit low
      P1319 misfire emission related
      P1318  misfire cylinder 6 emission related
      P1315 misfire cylinder 3 emission related
      P1313 misfire cylinder 1 emission related
       
      Somehow I went from a leaky tank to some bad stuff based on a do-it-myself moment.
      I wonder if the coil packs might not be perfectly seated?
      I'm thinking a new mass air flow sensor and all four O2 sensors need replacing??  
      Please advise.

      Hello all,
      This is a continuing repair to what started as a camshaft deviation out of spec leading to the replacement of the chain tensioner pads / brake pads / chain ramps on my 2000 911 - 996 5-Chain engine. Seen here:
      That odyssey has since been resolved but I now have a new issue.

      Quick background:
      Removed camshafts, readjusted the camshaft chain timing "marker" positions, replaced tensioner pads, reassembled everything per factory specs.
      On first start up got very rough idle and bad misfires. At first I thought it may have been my timing was off but went back and visually inspected all and all looked correct (visually). Upon further inspection realized parts guy had given me Bosch 7403 plugs instead of Bosch 7413 (2000 Porsche 911).

      Current issue:
      Switched out and installed the correct spark plugs and no more continuous misfires / backfires. Did the initial reset (wait 1 min with ignition on / turn ignition off / wait 10 sec) On the first start up it did misfired / back fired once but I assumed that was left over fuel.

      Car now runs but very rough and threw 2 codes:
      - P0300 : Porsche Fault code 62 - Misfire damaging cat. converter
      - P0301 : Porsche fault code Cylinder 1 misfire damaging to cat. converter
      Also, took these readings:
      Actual angle for camshaft bank 1: -12.53
      Actual angle for camshaft bank 2: 3.05

      On positive note the main reason for doing all this work was the original problem / issue of tensioner / brake pad wear which was giving me a -10 / -2.92 reading is now:
      Camshaft position 1 deviation: 0.00
      Camshaft position 2 deviation: 0.00

      So the question is now are the Actual angle for camshaft readings within specs and could incorrect timing be attributed to these new issues?

      And... Do I have to give the DME time to "relearn"?
