I  have a 2009 997.2 PDK Carrera 2 and am getting a loss of power and this error code:

2510: Fuel high-pressure control - adaptation. Value below lower limit value
 

I believe this means my HPFP is dead and am looking for the workshop procedure for replacing the high pressure fuel pump HPFP. I have looked far and wide for a DIY tutorial on this, but found nothing. My local stealership will do the work for $900 labor plus parts. I have sourced the pump for $850 and want to do the work myself. The pump looks readily accessible at the back right end of the engine, facing the rear bumper.

I am happy to write this up as a DIY with pics if someone can forward me the workshop manual pages or procedure?

I have a 2010 997.2 and I noticed before I purchased the car from its first owner, his records indicated there was a Factory Recall on the high pressure pump. Check with your dealer to see if your car was done.

Start with a low pressure check, when the pressure and/or flow rate of the regular pump inside the tank is not right, the high pressure pump will not reach the required values and cause an error code as well.

Thanks for the reply. Is there a procedure to check this? I have no information on how to measure the pressure or flow rate for this car, but I do have access to a comprehensively equipped pro mechanic shop.

For this is a pressure gauge with the appropriate connections required and a measuring glass and timer for the flow. Unfortunately i have no specific values available at this time, it will be available trough the piwissystem where pages of the workshop manual will be made available, be subject to payment. Hopefully someone has the values here in the forum yet.

Well, I couldn't find any information at all anywhere on replacing this, so I just worked it out for myself. Bought the pump from Porsche for $850 plus $150 core charge, pulled the exhausts off, removed the pump, installed the new pump, refitted the exhausts, took it for a test run. The car is transformed, a lot more power and no fault codes for the fuel pump. Took me 3 hours, Porsche were going to charge 4 hours.

 

However, I now have brand new fault codes of :

    
Siemens Digital Motor Electronics SDI3

Current Fault Codes    2310: Bar ignition module, cylinder 4 - Upper limit value exceeded

      
Transmission - PDK

Current Fault Codes    C418: U0418 - CAN fault, brake

 

They could have been there before though, my Durametric always hung when reading the codes, but now I have replaced the pump it scans this car properly without hanging.

Hey, I seem to have a HPFP problem with my car. When it starts, it idles rough and then check engine light and reduced power comes on... I am getting a p1026 code which googling it...has come up with the HPFP problem for other people.

I know where the pump is and would be tempted to change it myself but there seems to be a pipe or bar right behind my pump, I was wondering can you get the pump out as easy as you say or do you need to remove other parts? Is it really a matter of unscrewing and screwing the new one in? If it is this easy I may do it myself otherwise I will just send it to Porsche.

Any steps or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

That pipe is a coolant pipe. I managed to replace mine without disconnecting it, but it would be easier to replace if you did. There is a small drive gear in the engine that turns the pump, and the pump has a small tang that engages into the drive. It was a little tricky getting those to engage correctly when the coolant pipe was in the way.

 

It is not a difficult DIY. Unless your dealer is going to do the labor for less than $200, I would do it myself. My dealer wanted almost $2k to replace mine.

Yeah I was thinking that would be tricky to put in place. I managed to get an image online of the pump...so I was looking at that. I guess it will not fit in place unless it's in the right position, right? I wouldn't want to put it in, think it was OK then start engine and break internal engine parts :-( :-)

 

To replace by Porsche is way cheaper here than US... around £300pounds for labour, but my problem is, they are 60miles away and I would probably need my car transported to them etc..probably another 150bucks  and then there's the waiting time and going to pick it up again which is not convenient.

I normally do the general maintenance of my cars. Looking at where this is, I think I could manage it. Just want to make sure there is no wizardry or magical powers required to get it out nor to get it in again.

 

i would want to stay away from draining the coolant system too as I imagine thats a nightmare to bleed afterwards.

 

I also have a grease pit that might enable me to do it without stripping the back down... thus saving an hour....but must look and see if it's possible.

 

Thanks for your help!

It would be possible to get the pump fitted without the tang in the correct place, but I made very sure that I aligned them correctly before installation. It is pretty easy to do that correctly. The 'gear' in the engine side is like a large brass-coloured ring with a slot in it, and the pump tang fits in that slot. 

 

It's not too difficult to refill the coolant, and you can clamp the rubber hose part to minimize coolant loss. The best way is to buy a $50 AirLift vaccum filler that you hook to your air compressor, but you could also do it just by filling and topping up a few times after running. Like I said, I undid the hose clamps and retainers for that coolant tube and managed to move it enough without stressing the pipe to fit the pump behind it.

 

The largest part of the job for me was undoing the rusted exhaust bolts, but all came off after soaking overnight with penetrant and a bit of heat on a couple of them.

Thanks. Unless something changes my mind in the next few days I will change this myself. 

The exhaust bolts! I spent many hours changing mine a few months back. Thankfully I am now using nice stainless steel bolts that were copper greased to the moon. So never a problem again removing those bad boys. Although I never expected to be removing it so soon again :-(

Hello SpawnyWhippet and others...

 

I have exactly the same fault codes than you (2310 and C418:U0418). Did you figure out how to fix those issues?

 

Thanks!

I have not found a cure for the 2310 code. I cleared it a couple of times after I did the HPFP and then it never came back.

 

I also did not find a cure for C418, everything seems to work and my dealer didn't seem very interested in diagnosing it when I was last down there.

 

Sorry I can't be more help on this one.

      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

      The left door key switch on my 00’ 996 c4 will not lock or unlock. I took the handle and bracket out of the door frame. I was told what usually breaks is the cylinder but nothing appears to be broken. I don’t want to buy a new key so simply replacing the bracket isn’t an option. Is there a straight forward solution or do I need a specialist??
       
      Any my feedback would be much appreciated thanks!

      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,

      I have a 2004 Cayenne S. I just got it recently, interior lights have never worked. I checked the fuse and it was blown. It calls for a 20 amp fuse but the blown one in it was a 25 amp. I had the key in the ignition if I remember correctly and put the new 20 amp fuse in and everything came on. Side note, I noticed a weird glitch with the light above the rear passenger side door and the switch on the main map reading light. The interior lights had gone off and I turned the back on and the backlight above to passenger side door was very dim. I slid the switch on the overhead console for the main map light and the rear light came back to full strength. I found that odd. Everything then worked fine. I took the key out. Next time I put the key in, immediately heard the fuse blow. Any ideas on where to start?
