Two problems which may be connected
1) Car starts first couple of turns most of the time.......then sometimes wont start for 5 or 6 seconds of churning.....doesnt seem to matter if its hot or cold......
2) at low revs ( below 2300) the engine seems to "hunt" and revs up and down about 200 rpm. It makes it very uncomfortable in traffic.
Had it tested static and driving and no fault codes for either problem.
Any suggestions much appreciated.
I'm new to the site so please be patient with me? (Also grammar isn't my strong point)
So, I've owned my 2003 996 carrera for the past 2 years and for the most part its been trouble free. I got it with 110,000 miles its now got 130,000.
Maybe 5-6 times over the last year it's started misfiring as I come to a stop, it starts up after maybe 2 minutes and misfires for 30-40seconds, then runs fine.
The last two times this has happened the display has said low oil pressure as it's been misfiring, but then starts running normally with no message?
Any how just before Christmas I started the car as normal and left it ticking over but got held up,so it was probably idling for 40mins. I heard a loud misfiring sound and it cut out. I thought it had run out of fuel so I put a gallon in and it went up to a quarter. I tried starting it but it turns over but won't start. I have since had it towed in to a garage and they have plugged the computer into it and no faults are showing. Can anyone help as the garage isn't to sure?
Thanks in advance
P.S. it's a triptronic
