US Specs for Rear Fog Lamps on 911

On my 2001 911 2 Cab (purchased a year ago), I noticed that the right rear fog lamp was out, while the left rear worked fine. Turns out there was no bulb in the socket on the right. A friend in the...

I bought a 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 Cabriolet about a year ago. My high beams (Litronic) would occasionally not come on right away, sometimes taking a few seconds to finally come on. Same thing...

green coolant?
Hmmm ... I've been using G-12 pink coolant, as specified back in 2001. Maybe I'll switch to G-40 the current Porsche dictate when I have to flush in maybe 12 mos. But geen ... not...

JAN2019 Update!! Finally tackled the cracked tank on my 01 Carrera Cab, which was diagnosed by the local Porsche dealer who did the limited PPI. Quite a job: 3 hours to get tank out; 1 hour to slide...

I watched a video on how to remove and replace the radiators. The camera showed what happened as they were each removed ... a viscous glop oozed out of the pipes. Now, if there is some of this...

Yes, I was hoping the new Porsche-brand cap would maintain pressure and also not blow out the next weakest link in the coolling chain. So far, all I now get is continued coolant loss through the new...

Adding another factoid: Since I've put 3 gals of distilled water (and no antifreeze) in the cooling system to refill it when it lost coolant, I've now got a highly diluted solution in there. It...

Question Maintenance on Faulty Cruise Control Switch?

Another of the faulty features on my 01 996 Cab is inoperative cruise control. I suspect the switch mounted on the steering column may have dirty contacts. I've rebuild German switches before (on a...

Is it normal for the shaft connected to the bleeder bail to rise without the bail being actuated? I am assuming it rises when pressure builds in the tank. I noticed it would do this after a drive...

It's been bugging me why the temp stays in the '8' and '0' range on the highway, but rapidly climbs at idle well beyond. Running the throttle up to 3,000 rpms causes the temp to drop back into that 8...
