Alarm not working and back trunk jammed shut
When I turn car off dash lights stay on every time day or night and battery keeps draining what should I do to fix this problem
Does is trigger a trouble code in the computer to shut down?
I'm installing part number 99620122107. I've accessed the canister, but cannot determine how to disconnect tubes. Tried a few minutes but afraid I will break a connection. How are various tubes disconnected to remove canister?
The passenger side view mirror is no longer adjustable from the switch on the drivers side door. I can move the glass by hand but the switch does nothing. The same switch still works for the drivers side door mirror. I assume it would be the motor but wanted to see if anyone else had a similar issue.
Clutch pressure plate gone?...or hydraulics going?
Feels like the old scenario of someone "riding the clutch"
The lamp covers to my headlights have continued to melt, causeing an ugly eyesore to the covers. Appears they have melted. Could the bulb be a higher voltage then it should be and also, are there any specific type of bulbs that should be installed? I wonder if the dealership could have replaced the bulbs with cheaper version? The older the car gets, the MORE MELTING OF LAMP COVERS! I UNDERSTAND THE COVERS ARE OF PLASTIC AND WILL CONTINE TO BE COVERED WITH WHAT APPEARS TO BE A DARK NICOTINE COLOR..ANYONE HAVE THIS ISSUE? PLEASE HELP AND THANK YOU SO MUCH! IT STARTED WITH ONLY ONE HEADLAMP AND NOW THE OTHER ONE IS STARTING TO DO SAME THING, AFTER HAVING A LAMP BULB REPLACED. WILL THIS EROSION BE ABLE TO BE REMOVED OR WILL THE ENTIRE LAMP HAVE TO BE REPLACED?
I had oil changed 3 days prior to 125 mi road trip. During road trip white smoke started coming from tail pipe. A few mi later the check engine light came on and I immediately pulled over. The car was towed back to Firestone who checked prob out and refuse to take care of issue, although there was NO INDICATION of ANY problems prior to oil change. I just turned 72,000 mi on car. Should this prob have been detected during oil change? Appx how much would Porsche dealer charge to replace oil seperator filter, as I have been told by Firestone this is the issue that caused car to engulf in white smoke. PLEASE HELP because Firestone has had my car towed to Porsche dealership and I await their call for quote on repairs. THANKS SO MUCH!
Had my oil changed and after appx 100 mi road trip my car started smoking with heavy white smoke. I am being told the oil seperator went bad on car, however, it has nothing to do with having oil changed just 3 days prior! I had no indication of any problem with white smoke, prior to oil change. As soon as my engine light came on, I pulled over and parked the car. It has been towed back to Firestone who did oil change and now they "deny responsiblity" for my issue! My car just turned over to 72,000 mi after oil change. Should this defective oil seperator been detected during oil change? Appx how much will this cost to have oil seperator replaced by Porsche dealer?
The RPM doesn't matter. I could shift at 1800 or 3000 RPM, sometimes you'll hear CHUNK (sometimes soft, sometimes louder) and most times you won't. I am careful with clutch engagement, I don't dump the clutch. It does it only when shifting between 1st and 2nd gear. I bought the car used recently and don't know the car's history.
Tried a funnel and 16 in.hose,same results.
It has 77K with manual trans.Seams to run ok but can't drive it,the is blinding.
My mechanic is telling me that battery gel is bad for porsche alternator is this true
Starts fine when cooled down.
