Hi guys!

 

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

exhaust leak.

 

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!

Get the fault codes read using Durametric or a Porsche tool and post them here. Many after market scanners do not pickup Porsche specific codes or pending codes.

Clear the codes - drive the car and re-test.

Hi,

 

If I were troubleshooting I'd have a look at the

MAFs

fuel pumps

vacuum leak test

 

If they all prove sound check when the fuel filter was changed, they become gummed up after about 50k miles.

 

I've just swopped out MAFs and filter which cured both rough idle and the to lean error.

Good morning

 

just got the car back from local shop

 

got it scanned with durametric, got so many codes i almost cried...

 

p0509 : idle air control system rpm

p2187 : system at idle bank 1

p2189 : system at idle bank 2

p0011 : a camshaft position-timing over-advance or system performance bank 1

p0021 :  a camshaft position-timing over-advance or system performance bank 2

p0441 : evaporative emission system incorrect purge flow

p0300 : random/multiple cylinder misfire detected

p0303 : cylinder 3 misfire detected

p0302 : cylinder 2 misfire detected

p0301 : cylinder 1 misfire detected

p0304 : cylinder 4 misfire detected

 

so my mechanic said it might me due to a timing chain problem..making the camshaft skip a tooth resulting in timing advance causing misfire on 4 cylinder (on the same side of the engine)

 

i erased all the codes and only 2 misfire came back.. cylinder 2 & 6.. drove the car back home (5 min away) and performed a compression test

cylinder 2 showed no compression at all, other cylinders were low on compression but i felt that my battery was low so may be the test was not accurate ( i hope so)

next thing i did was a leak down test on cylinder 2.. i could hear the air rushing threw the exhaust.. this tells me i have a bad exhaust valve, or spring valve or some dirt or carbon build up between the valve and the valve seat...

 

so now my question is : can i remove heads with the engine in place? will i need to send both engine heads to machine shop for repair ?

what are the chances i would need new rings OR timing chain done...

mechanic said it could cost up to 1000$ per head to do exhaust valves only...

 

cant immagine how much all of this is going to cost..

125$ each exhaust valve, 16 total

 

 

thanks for your help!

It would be easier, and probably faster, to pull the engine; plus if you run into anything else it would already be out and accessible.

I have removed the heads off my S myself without taking the engine out. There is no need to change all the valves, you can just change out the bad ones. Exhaust valves for the s are way cheaper by the way. You need a tool for the timing which cost about a $100 but you can make it yourself easily. You also should download and read the Workshop manual.

Never said that  heads can't be removed with the engine still in, but it is much easier with it out, plus you have access to anything else at the same time.  My concern is both the amount of time it takes with the engine still in, and then possibly finding out he needs to pull it anyway.

thanks for your help guys

 

when you removed your heads off, did you noticed any signs of excessive carbon build up?

 

where can i download the workshop manual?

 

Thanks again

I have found the manual here for my S. Take care not to bend the camshaft pins on the back and check all hoses while you get to it, i had to change some hoses.

It would be easier, and quicker, to drop the engine.  You can pull the heads on the V6 with the engine still in, but the V8 is much tighter.

Thank you JFP ,

maybe i will try first to take the head Bank2 out with engine in but not sure that i can remove from the head the exhaust manifold ! what you think about exhaust manifold

The exhaust manifold's are always a pain because you end  up with broken bolts.

Will collect the parts , gasket valve , rubbers and will figured out how to make it . maybe first will try from Up :)

will keep update the forum with pictures :)

      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

      Recently had my air oil seperator replaced. At start ran a little rough now runs super rough and wants to stall. Changed 2 pre cat o2 sensors and mass air flow sensor. These are the current codes, 0112, 0300, 0301, 0302, 0303, 1316, 0102, 0130. Prior the car ran perfect and I cant believe I have all those cylinders misfiring because of plugs or coils. Please help

      Unfortunately, I am back with another problem or problems........
      A couple of days ago a check engine light popped up on my 997.2s and because it is my daily driver, I was not able to immediately diagnose the issue. I went ahead and ordered a "Carsoft POR II" scanner off amazon as i thought it would help my understanding in what the problem was. (Getting to the point.....)   Today while I was driving home from class, the car was running very rough. I decided to pull over and give the scanner a go...
      DME CODES;
      P0660 INTAKE PIPE SWITCHOVER FINAL STAGE
      P0153 02 SENSOR AHEAD OF CAT BANK 2 DYNAMISM 
      P2099 A/F  RATIO CORRECT. BEH. CAT. BANK 2 ABOVE RICH CONTROL UNIT
      P2198 02 SENSOR AHEAD OF CAT. BANK 2 TOO RICH SIGNAL
      P0174 BANK 2 TOO LEAN
      P0171 SYSTEM TOO LEAN
      P2196 02 SENSOR SIGNAL BIASED/ STUCK BANK 1 SENSOR 1
       
      Being the person I am, I went ahead and cleared the codes dreaming my problems would magically go away. ?
      About 10 minutes into my commute the codes again popped up but this time, there was something a bit different.......
       
      THE NEW CODES INCLUDED;
      P0174 SYSTEM TOO LEAN BANK 2
      P0171 SYSTEM TOO LEAN BANK 1
      P0306 MISFIRE CYLINDER 6
      P0305 MISFIRE CYLINDER 5 
      P0304 MISFIRE CYLINDER 4
      P0300 MISFIRE - TOTAL ERROR
      P0660 INTAKE PIPE SWITCHOVER FINAL STAGE
       
      About 2 months ago I installed a new O2 sensor bank 1 sensor. While at it, I had a new AOS installed as well ( OEM parts). There are some theories I have in mind but as for now, I am truly stumped on this issue. Does anyone have any experience with this madness?! Thanks for reading! ?
       
      This morning I started my car again and a puff of white smoke shot out of the tail pipes. The smoke did clear up really quick. 
       
      MORE NEW CODES;
      P2A04 O2 SENSOR CIRCUT RANGE/ PERFORMANCE BANK 2 SENSOR 2
      P2099 POST CATALYST FUEL TRIM SYSTEM TOO RICH BANK 2
      P0153 O2 SENSOR CIRCUIT SLOW RESPONSE BANK 2 SENSOR 1
      P2198 O2 SENSOR SIGNAL BIASED/ STUCK RICH BANK 2 SENSOR 1
      P0171 SYSTEM TOO LEAN BANK 1

      I changed out the coolant tank about two weeks ago. During the tank install, I broke the oil filler tube.  I wrapped it tightly with Gorilla tape as a few people had mentioned  that as a temporary fix.   I've driven the car about 250 miles since then with no issues. I detect a bit of gasoline smell in the exhaust but I'm not sure if it's my imagination since I had to disconnect the fuel lines during the tank R&R and I'm a bit paranoid after I work on my car.  There are no black deposits on or near the tailpipes.  Yesterday I was driving and was very low on fuel. I noticed a slight shudder every 15 or 20 seconds while I was idling at a traffic light. I filled it up as I thought maybe that was causing the shudder.
       
      When I got home, I cleaned the MAF with MAF Cleaner. I started the car briefly and it seemed fine.
       
      Today I pulled the car out and it was running rough immediately . Within about a minute I got a CEL P0301 - Cylinder 1 Misfire. It didn't rain yesterday but the humidity was close to 90% 
       
      I had changed out the spark plugs about 20,000 miles ago but didn't replace the coils at that time, which I assume were original.  I just ordered new plugs and coils and will install them when they arrive.
       
      Would a bad MAF or leaking oil filler tube trigger a misfire on just one cylinder?
       
      I was planning on delaying the oil filler tube replacement to next year when I'll have my Indy replace the 7 year old LNE IMS  and the AOS.
       
      Is there anything I can check in the meantime?

      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.
