I’ll admit it, I love Porsches, but I really love 4×4’s. I’m not talking jack your Chevy Silveraydo up with a lift kit and mud tires type of truck (Did you know Chevy’s come with a vortec engine, made out of real tornados?….youtube Amiri King and his Chevy Parodys….hilarious, though not work safe due to language!), but rather oddball, bad ass rigs. So, when I come across this type of stuff I always get geeked about it. Love it when …

Cayenne Week

Last week was Cayenne central around here. Never fails that I tell a customer that we don’t see a lot of Cayennes in for service because they just don’t break…..then I have 5 Cayennes show up in one week, lol! Most of them were routine service, but this one had a bad oil leak that turned out to be the valve covers leaking. We’ll start seeing a lot of these soon as the gaskets were so rock hard it was …

We got the RSA back from paint a few weeks ago and it has been on the back burner since. The three disc puck clutch let go at the last race so I needed to get that fixed, and get the car aligned.

Kind of hard to believe, but this post will mark the 1000th post (that means probably 500 or so pissed off 928 owners!) on the blog since I started it back in 2009. I’ll be having a party at the shop today to celebrate, but it will probably be pretty lame with me just working on cars and not talking to people. A bunch of the older posts are lacking pictures as I lost data on a server, but I …

Giggity……

It’s been Cayenne week here for some reason. I was just telling someone we don’t see a lot of Cayennes because they typically don’t need much….then boom, he comes in a few days later and I have 4 sitting here, lol. If you are getting an AWD/4wd error light on the cayenne, it is very often due to this stepper motor/servo. Luckily it is found on the transfer case externally, rather than in the case itself. Looks expensive…..and is! And …

Had a .2 997 in the shop the other day for it’s overdue spark plug service. Plugs are now a 4 year service item no matter the mileage according to Porsche, so if you haven’t done them, get them done! The process unfortunately is a bit harder than the M96/M97 engines, and for you DIY at home guys, I recommend pulling the mufflers and loosening the cats/headers to give yourself room to work. I’ve got monkey arms and a wide …
