Hi Everyone! Long time Lurker and final a first time Porsche owner! I just got a new to me 2008 CCT with 56K miles on it. I really like it but I am already having several issues with it. The good news is, the dealership I got it from is including a 60 day 3K mile 100% warranty on all parts and repairs.
One of the several issues I am having is it sounds like the power steering pump is going and it makes a loud whining noise and they are saying it's normal. The ps fluid level is normal, but it is a very distinct noise that I can hear from a distance away. I would really appreciate if you could help me decipher this noise. Here is a video of the noise.
Other problems are: Needs a new driveshaft. Needs the thermostat replaced. It keeps throwing a 1117 Load Signal Generator Terminal DF. Battery is reading 13.4 max with no load running and drops to 13.0 with lights etc. on. They insist it's good. Brakes won't stop squealing after replacing pads and they had to replace they front left Accelerometer because of the air lift system error. WHEW! I still thinks it's going to be an awesome vehicle.
I go back this week to drop it off for 2 days for all those repairs but I want to make sure I get everything that is obvious. Also since they will have the intake manifold off, I was thinking I should replace the Plastic T connectors for the coolant lines. Is there anything else I should deal with while they have it all apart? Ignition coil packs?
adding this for new readers:
Thanks for any help guys.
2002 911 C2 Coupe
I'm having the classic misfire on cylinder 1 when the car is wet. I used contact cleaner on the ignition wire plug into the coil and it works fine for now. I/m sure when it gets rained on it will misfire again. Already replaced spark plugs. I discovered there is a tear in the little orange gasket (green arrow in photo) on the ignition wire connector and water is getting in there when it rains. Anybody know where I can find a replacement without buying a new $812 engine wiring harness?
This is my first post but I have done tons of forum searching and found similar posts but nothing with my same codes. I have noticed a rough idle but once I drive the car drives great and boosts great. Along with the 2 EVAP codes I have P0300, P0301, P0304 and P0308. I have changed the spark plugs and I did a full inspection of the coil packs. The coil packs looked perfect, no cracks or damage and it needed new plugs so I did Beru plugs. In that process I changed the torque arm also because the rubber was shot. That didn't solve the misfire and I didnt notice any wiring issues or connector issues.
Onto the EVAP stuff. I have the two codes P2401 & P0448. Just put a new gas cap on and cleared the codes, they come right back. I also checked the oil fill cap and its seal looks great (no cracks in the oring).
Does anyone have any idea or run into these same symptoms? I have an appointment at my local Indy shop in a few days but would like to go in prepared. They're going to start with a smoke test looking for a vacuum leak.
Thanks in advance,
