Question about 1998 Porsche 911 Carrera

Open Question

Porsche 911 (996 C4S) won't start

I have the same problem and the garage thinks it is the fuel pomp and a new one has been ordered to "fix" the problem.
Fingers crossed.
I also think it might be the alarm, but have no idea to reset it...any suggestions?
At start up, it also produces a lot of white/blue smoke, which they claim has to do with the "separator" and now they will add a second one, which will require for the engine to be taken out, add the separator and reinstall the engine...

Start by squirting a little fuel into the throttle body and then crank it and see if it fires up .. if so its a fuel problem if not its going to be something in the electrical. holler if you need more thanks Jerry

If you mean the small lower lip spoiler, remove the screws from the inside edge near wheel (1 small phillips screw each side) then tug spoiler fromone end to release plastic lugs that locate spoiler into front p.u.

SOURCE: how do you open a 911 C4S (997) bonnet when there

Your best bet is adding voltage through the cigarette lighter. Go down to radio shack and buy a cigarette plug. Wire it up to a small 12 volt battery. This should give enough juice to pop the bonnet.

SOURCE: Where can i find a manual for the PCM Sat Nav on a Porsche (996)

If you don't have a Porsche dealer near you, check eBay for a Nav manual. Your car should have come with one though. Good luck!

2006 C4S Tip, 26,000 miles Now in Porsche dealership having the engine stripped. They are suggesting that one of the pistons is starting to fail. Their diagnostic equipment shows no fault codes but further testing has shown that one bank is having to work harder than the other side. Their prognosis is a new engine. Do not let your warranty expire!!! Also see here: http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=48&t=731645&mid=154532&i=0&nmt=OPC - Does this sound odd to you?&mid=154532
