First of all I apologize if I do anything wrong since I only just created this account in order to ask this community a question.
We own a Porsche 996 Targa 2002 and as we all know the 996 is prone to engine problems such as IMS and oil and coolant mixture.
Today when I was checking if the engine still had enough oil and coolant and decided they needed a fillup I saw something that I did not really like.
I've uploaded two pictures one of how the coolant looks and another picture of where you add the oil.
Is the yellowish stuff you see ok or is this the first sign of the oil and coolant mixture?
The car seems to run fine and never had any problems with engine temperature, hope you guys can help me out on this one!
With kind regards,
A somewhat nervous 996 owner.
New on this site. Short intro - bought a beat up 993 Targa 3 years ago whilst living in Dubai. Spent some money on it including a bare metal respray then Company transferred me to Singapore but couldn't take the car with me so exported it back to the UK as I couldn't sell it.
Car has failed its MOT on emmissions - no surprise but trying to find out exactly what it is fitted with. The car went straight from the factory to the Middle East and has the following options:-
Rest of the world car
C32 - Arab states
M150 - leaded
Can anybody shed any light on what the above codes mean in terms of a catalytic convertor, lambda sensing etc, especially C32 and M150 codes.
Thinking to fit a sports cat to it.
Some pics added for interest.
I've searched the forums, and I haven't found a similar issue...
I have a 2004 Targa and the windows have been working great up until the last couple of weeks. Now when I have the passenger window down and I press the switch for it to go back up, it'll get about half way up, pause, and then put itself back down. After a couple of tries I can manage to get it to go all the way back up by holding the switch down. I've tried resetting the limits, but that didn't help. The driver's side window works great.
I've searched the forum and couldn't find an answer and am posting here for your help. Let me know if this isn't the right place for this question.
I'm searching for my first 911 and am confused about the headlights. On one 911 targa (2002) the options sticker does not list Litronic headlights but the owner and ppi shop said it does. Another 2002 targa lists the option on the sticker.
Do some 2002s have Litronic/bi-xenon headlights as standard equipment?
