Hi All,

I am battling fuel pump (I believe) issues. I ahve replaced the pumps int he tank as well as the filter and sending unit. All coils and plugs have been replaced and one injector was bad (P0203 code).

In any case I am still suffering form the "slump band" in the RPM range while under load (driving). GTS is a 6 speed manual so it's very easy to put the vehicle in the slump.

I hooked it up to the Durametric this morning and took it for a drive. I utilized the logging feature and initiated the following:

1) Fuel Level (53)

2) Pressure Upstream of Throttle Body (902.7 mBar)

3) Fuel High Pressure Set Point (40 BAR)

4) Fuel High PRessure Acutal Value (40 BAR)

Problem is I'm unsure of what the factory spec is for mBAR and BAR pressures. If anyone can let me know it would be greatly appreciated!

Did you ever get the values? I am looking for the correct ones too.

      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 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

      I'm installing an AIM Data logger and want to add some additional Oil Pressure Sensors for monitoring.
      I've been told that the OE location is in the upper right corner of the 456 Bank and that there is a tapped and plugged location 
      on the lower right corner of the 123 bank. I figured that would work fir one and I was hoping to add an additional one somewhere that would give me 
      a reading closer to the sump. The goal is to differentiate between G Force effected readings and if I'm running the sump dry.
       
      Any suggestions?
       
      Thanks,

      Hi Guys, I am a proud owner of a 2010 Porsche Cayenne Base model and I have been having a intermittent Engine hesitation issue. the following is a detailed issue of whats been happening, any suggestions that would help resolve this is appreciated.
       
      About a month ago I was coming back from Roosevelt lake ,AZ which is about 3 hours from Tucson, it was a hot day 113deg, I was already in town and the gas gauge read about 1/8 of a tank and I was starting to move from a light when all of the sudden it felt like the engine stalled and came back on for a second then it did it again and my CEL came on.
       
      I thought maybe my gauge was off and i was running out of fuel so i found the nearest gas station and filled up, I drove home and connected my car to my Icarsoft Computer and it was showing error P2293 Rail Pressure Control, I cleared the error and decided I would drive the car and see if it would happened again, Two months and hundreds of miles of mixed city and highway driving went by without a hitch.
       
      Last week I had to go to LA so I packed up the car (4 passengers and luggage) and headed out. About two hours in on I8 right before Yuma it was 114 degrees outside and  I was cruising at about 85 MPH, the gas gauge read about 5/8 of a tank all oil and coolant temps were normal when all of the sudden the hesitation came back, it would run normal then hiccup then run normal, ect.. and the CEL came back on, this went on for about 20 minutes but I was still able to maintain 80-85 MPH.
       
      After 20 minutes of this we decided to pull into a gas station and fill the tank with gas to see if anything would change and wouldn't you know that after filling up and setting off again over the mountain pass towards San Diego the car ran without a hitch, we averaged 77 MPH all the way to LA, but we would stop to fill up whenever the gauge read 5/8. after a couple of hours the CEL turned off on its own.
       
      On our way back to Tucson we decided to fill up in San Diego and not fill up until it started to act up, and to my surprise the car once more ran flawlessly.
       
      We didn't fill up until the gas low warning chime came on in Marana, AZ. The highest temperature this day was 104 deg. We filled the tank and made it home without incident. The next day I connected my car to my Icarsoft computer and it was showing the following error codes: P2293 Rail Pressure control, P0300 Random/multiple cylinder misfire detected, P0301 cylinder 1 misfire detected, P0303 cylinder 3 misfire detected.
       
      Could this be ambient temperature related? Vapor lock at high ambient temps? If it was the fuel pumps you think it would have failed again on the way back, right?
      This has to be happening to other people with 2007-2010 Cayenne Base models. Any input will help.
       
      Thanks in Advance.
       
      Sincerely;
      Paul

      I have a 1998, ROW C2. Over the past two weeks I have noticed that the fuel gauge is not reading correctly. The gauge will read high (3/4) but as I drive, the gauge will slowly drop to the correct reading over about 15 minutes. As the car sits, either at work for the day or in the garage overnight, when I go to start the car, the gauge will read over 1/4 tank higher than when I shut it off. Then, as I drive, it will drop to where I think it should be (or remember where it should be). I plan to pull the sender this weekend and check the connections, but I don't think it is the float as why would it rise while the car is turned off? Is it possible to troubleshoot the cluster gauge? I have a Durametric so I will attempt the fuel level calibration when I have pumped down the tank. Or am I just fooling myself and the gauge is bad?
