I am completely flummoxed by this noise I am getting in my 2004 Turbo Cab. A couple nights ago while driving home with the top down, I noticed a rattle different from the normal sound of the motor and not accelerating/decelerating with changes in engine RPM. It occurred at 1800-2000 rpm and was most noticeable when decelerating in 2nd gear in my neighborhood at slow speeds (~20MPH)... with a helper on the throttle and the engine compartment open, it sounds like it is coming from the right side-top of the engine, around the Hydraulic reservoir. Putting a spanner/wrench on the component and up to the temple seems to have confirmed this as the source. I checked my manual and the Pentosin level (mid range on the HOT side of the dipstick at operating temp) I realize that Porsche recommends checking at 20C but I live in Texas now and that won't happen until November. Just out of curiosity I looked at the clutch reservoir up front and after removing the gooey trim cover, found it leaking (Seeping) from the recently replaced cap and appearing to be overfilled. The car has never really been operated in the 8 years I have had it in particularly high average temperatures, so I am hoping that the front is thermal expansion. Any thoughts on this matter are greatly appreciated... Loren? What Say You??
Thanks in advance,
When battery is dead the electrical system is down, as is the trunk for accessing battery.
I have tried connecting positive to red fuse and negative to door arm. I ran current using jump starter but could not get latch to open. Does anyone have any other ideas to open truck, e.g. force lift? Thanks in advance.
Is this also true for current year C4S?

I have a 2006 3.2 Cayenne. When I accelerate normally the engine sounds slightly like a diesel until i reach 1900 to 2000 rpm. If I accelerate fast I also get loud engine rattle noise at around 3000, if I drive normal the rattle is not very prominent. No power loss shifts smooth. The engine rattle noise does increase with rpm but disappears around 4000 rpm when car shifts. No rattle at 3000 rpm normal acceleration. Any thoughts?

I need to replace the rear tires on my 2007 C4s and it turns out the Michelin Pilot Super Sports are completely unavailable, with no ETA. Even if one makes allowance for the odd size and likely small demand, that is still pretty shocking. What alternative have you tried and what do you recommend? Car is a daily driver, street driven, I value quiet running (not that our cars are *that* quite, but would rather not add running noise).
