Well I can hear it! A loud pssssst sound on the passenger side of the engine. When I move the hoses, the sound gets louder and then gets less loud. I tried some carb cleaner and a butane torch, but could not detect the location of the leak. And when the motor shuts off, there is an extra loud PSSST. Oh well, my leak detection skills are lacking. Time to take it to my mechanic. They have a smoke machine.

My question is this - the leak sound is very distinct. Should there be any leaking sound out of that side of the motor, is that a common sound? Like I said, my leak detection skills are somewhat lacking. OK, they are non-existant.

      Hi, I've just bought a 911sc cabriolet with a problem of high idle when hot.  The car starts easily, idles roughly at 900 rpms and then as I drive for a while it settles in to a 2000 rpm idle that won't go away.  If I stop the car for a short period of time and restart, the idle once again stumbles at 900 and then starts to creep up to 2000.
       
      From what I've read on forums, there seems to be so many different places to start troubleshooting...any suggestions?  acccumulator?  WUR? simply adjust idle and fuel mixture?? crack in airbox?  vacuum leak??  
       
      Any pushes in the right direction would be appreciated.  The car has a very complete service history and I see where the WUR was changed with a second hand unit at one time and then a new unit replaced that one a few years later.  When I received the car, I also noticed one of the electric plugs to the WUR, the one towards the back of the car, had been disconnected.   I reconnected it.
       
      Thanks in advance.
       
      Steve
