    I have developed a misfire on the 4/5/6 bank after replacing a cracked head (p0300 abd p0304/5/6). Not the cat or the downstream o2 sensor, not the solenoid either (swapped sides and CEL didn't follow). I suspect it has something to do with the head rebuild like the lifters maybe you mention in one of the threads. Can you send me the misfire trouble shooting PDF? After resetting the CEL it take about two days (drive cycles) for it to appear again. Blinked three times once and stopped. Hasn't blinked again when it comes on - just a steady yellow CEL.

    Thank you!

    I saw where you mentioned a DIY for a Boxster clutch replacement. Is that something you could share?

    Hi Macster,

    it is an Auto gear, the whining happens all the and starts from 50km and above whenever accelerating

    actually they did not tell anymore details, as they did not remove the gearbox... only said the Whining was coming out from the Diff. !

    but the question is: is it true that the gearbox attached to the diff as one part?
    FYI: this the 2nd opinion and both garages expected to be professional! but still not convinced

    But according to what you mentioned I think I just sell it,,,, ahhhh such a nice car
    its taking long time to re-post in forum!!!

    Thanks anyway

    I have a random-misfire issue with my Porsche 997 and after reading several topics I came across an earlier topic ( I this topic there is a post from you on misfiring-trouble shooting and reference to a pdf-instruction.

    If you still have it available, can you send me a copy of this pdf-instruction? All the common items as coils, sparkplugs, connectors MAF, etc. have been replaced already, but I keep getting random misfires under random conditions (rain, cold, hot engine, cold engine, etc.). The flashing CEL keeps coming back on and is driving me crazy

    Any help would be appreciated. Please let me know. Thanks in advance,


    Dennis (from the Netherlands)

    Hey, newbie here. Just bought a 03 996 C2 with 21500 miles on it out of Virginia. Drove home to Louisiana, no issues. Filled it up with gas at normal station and 25 miles later had warning light come on and message to drive to a garage. Misfire on cyliner 5, 305 code.
    Brought to local import mechanic
    *Checked fuel, no apparent issues.
    *Checked coil, firing. Replaced with new coil, no improvement.
    *Checked injector, not spraying correctly at idle, fine at higher RPMs. Replaced injectory, no improvement.
    *Did leak down test, good results.
    *Did compression test, 60% of other 5 cylinders.
    *Scoped cylinder and intake lifter doesn't work properly when engine is turned over. He says it looks soft, so may be broken spring in lifter.
    Do I replace all the intake lifters on that side or on both sides or do I just replace the faulty one? What about exhaust lifters?
    I appreciate any insight you can give. [email protected] 9853208200

    Hi there, just doing a PPI on a 2001 996 Turbo with 46000 km's on it and the shop has come back with the below fault code;

    "Fault in Transmission, P0701 Gear implausible, trans. slips,
    cleared fault and road tested, no fault present. If fault does
    return Transmission will need to be stripped and assessed for

    Much appreciated if you could shed any light on your experience with this fault - cheers - Hugh
