Really need advises for my 997.1 with IMS problem.

Recommended Posts

Guys,

I am seeking for some help on my 997.1 C2S (2005). 2 months ago, when I was driving my car in the city (low speed), after turning round the corner suddently all dash lights came on and followed by engine cut off. As there was no particular weir noise beforehand, so normal response I turned the key and the engine started but only for 2 seconds before it cut off again.

From there, I realized that the rear floor was full of engine oil. The car of course ended up at my mechanic with engine off the car noticing that the IMS bearing was broken inside the housing but no visual damage seem to appear on the IMS itself.

Anyway, to cut short I had the ims bearing replaced with taking the whole engine apart. After the repair I took the car for test drive, it seems running fine but when engine is cold, everytime I accelerate from zero, the throttle response feels a bit shakey and doesnt want to accelerate. However once the car has been warmed up, it is back to normal.

Can someone please advise me what might be wrong with my car? Will it be sensor issue? It has only done 45,000km.

Thanks

Sorry to hear about your experience Eso. It sound like you're experiencing some hesitation which could be caused by a number of things. Is there a check engine light on or are any codes present?

Make sure the diagnostic includes a scan of any pending codes in the computer. That will show whether there is a problem about to manifest its self. Seeing as how the hesitation didn’t appear to be present prior to the IMS problem my guess would be your problem is electronic/sensor related in nature.

      I am starting to prepare my car for a track day at Chuckwalla valley raceway at the end of the month, and I was told that the car as it sits has oiling issues?  My car is a 2003 Carrera.  I bought the car last year with 74k miles and immediately did the following:  LN IMS bearing, Waterpump, coil packs, spark plugs, all filters and fluids, clutch + flywheel and a stock AOS. In anticipation of the event, I am going to do an oil change from M1 0w-40 to the Joe Gibbs dt40 oil suggested by Jake Raby along with fresh filters.  Is there anything else I need to do to not have oil starvation?  Is this issue blown out of proportion?  does the 2qt sump extension make that much of a difference? will it affect the streetability?  I am running 200tw tires.

      Hello everyone, I am new to the forum. I own a 98, bone stock, manual Carrera and here is my attempt at scattering the clouds over 996. Hope you'll like & share.

      I plan to replace the RMS and IMSB on my 2003, Carrera, Coupe, 3.6, Tiptronic.  I have read about the MB version of the Tiptronic requiring the removal of the trans/engine together while the ZF can be removed separately.  Is this true and how can I determine which one that I have?  I crawled underneath and could not see an I.D. tag.  So far I have found conflicting information regarding the trans. in this car.

      I was planning to replace the plugs.  I went to remove the mufflers.  They were very corroded - especially the two I do not have to remove.  I used penetrating oil (acetone + AFT).  They are much prettier, but they are still corroded.
       
      Here is a 1 min video of the bolts so you can see what I am facing:
       
      Questions:
      If I get started on removing them and it does not go well, what next?  Surely I don't have to replace the catalytic converters?  Are the bolts somehow replaceable?
      Do they look too far gone?
