Server Lease Renewal/Software Licenses
Our yearly server lease, software licenses, as well as hardware operating costs, ARE due Dec 6th, 2021. Our current donations have fallen far short of the funds we need to renew. Please remember the RennTech.org community is Member supported so please consider a donation to help... THANK YOU!

2007 997 was running rough. The Durametric said misfire cylinder one. Checked the forums and saw most likely culprit was either bad spark plug, bad ignition coil, or both. Oreilly’s had the Bosch spark plug and a coul that was labeled Import Direct. For the sake of convenience I bought the plug and coil from them. The coil was actually the newer version Beru (oem) with the longer bolts. Much easier job than I ever imagined. There are good tutorials on YouTube. Engine runs great and I cleared the codes. No check engine light and codes haven’t returned.

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??
Long story short, one day noticed water in the drivers footwell, found a leak on the door to body wire harness. Dried car out. Car was 100% before this, seemed to be OK even when wet.
2 Weeks later, car started getting random faults on the MFI (Brake, ABS, PSM, etc). Would clear, then come, then clear. Battery is about 7 months old (replaced when I first got these errors) Ton of errors in durametric, then one day would not start or move out of if it did start.
Peeled carpet back. Found 3 wires. 1 Crimped, 2 soldered. 1 of the soldered was gone, so cut that out, butt soldered and then repeated for the other 2 as I heard they usually go bad.
Cleared all the DTCs with durametric, car started fine, all looked good in happyville.
2 weeks later got a check engine light, read codes, p0119, p0117 and p1552 (from memory, may be wrong). Seemed to be the engine temp sensor. Thought maybe a fluke, reset and ignored. This has been on and off last few months.
I also noticed when hooking the durametric, or other code readers, it seemed to create a draw on the system, and the engine would idle rough, or the e throttle would not respond if I tried to drive with it plugged in. Pulled the durametric and all was fine, same with a bluetooth ODBII module I have. I replaced relay 433 under the driver's seat, and this seemed to cure that problem, since it provides relayed power to the CANBUS.
About 3 months later got a PSM failure, at 45MPH and car went into limp mode. Restarted car, error was gone. Seemed fine for another month, got the same PSM failure yesterday, car seemed to be lurching a bit in slow moving traffic when it came up.
Could the bad temp sensor be triggering this? It has slowly gotten worse I assume as once in awhile I see my gauge stops working. Or did I miss something else with my wire repairs.
I am at the point ready to rip out passenger wiring under the carpet and inspect, but I suppose I should just replaced the impossible to reach temp sensor first, as it really does seem bad at this point. I also notice all the fuse block fuses for the PSM are on the right hand side, makes me wonder if the wiring issue is there.
Just seems weird I have all these problems at once.
this is my first post! let's see if anyone can help me out with this problem.
i have a 2004 porsche cayenne turbo with 120 000 miles. took it for a high speed run last night (130+ mph).
when i got home i noticed a very rough idle and the car was shaking/vibrating. i can also hear a noise from the engine similar to an
the check engine light was already on prior to that ride (codes are : p2187, p2189, p0011, p0441)
no new codes so i assume there is no missfires?
feels like it runs on 7 cylinders.. coils and spark plugs have been replaced recently
can a high speed run causes a blown spark plug/coil ?
i still have boost so i assume it is not a boost/vaccum leak?
can it be a stuck valve, bad spring valve all of a sudden?
do i need a compression test or how can i check if one cylinder is missfiring?
(i speak french sorry for grammar)
thanks for your help!
