Hydraulic lifters on Porsche 996. Are sticking lifters a problems on the 996 3.6 engine ? Misfire at idle, coils or lifters. Any thoughts guys ?


You could put a tiny bit a Auto Matic Transmission fluid in the oil for about 10 miles and then replace the oil with a little thinner viscosity oil. for example if you use 20-50w change to 10-30w. If they continue to make noise, replace them. They should not be too expensive, though it is a Porsche, lol

No PSM No Triptronic No Radio


Check all your fuses, if they're all good it sounds like you have a wiring harness that's loose somewhere.

What is the comon fault


The most serious common faults are with the standard 3.4 engine in the early 996 Carrera models (not applicable to Turbo engined vehicles which is a different engine design):

1. The engine cylinder liners develop hairline cracks. (Engine replacement or rebuild required).

2. The intermediate shaft bearings fail in these engines (a well known design fault). Failure requires engine replacement.

3. The rear main seals in the engines fail as exhibited by a slowly worsening oil leak. The seal needs to be replaced when they leak. It's an expensive job.

Problems 1 and 2 are serious have resulted in many engine replacements. Problems 2 and 3 remained when Porsche upgraded to the standard 3.6 engine in the series two 996 Carrera models (problems not applicable to Turbo engines)..

There are a few other issues such as Air Conditioning condensers that clog up with road debris and eventually become porous and fail.

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!
