Since I DE my car a lot (6 track days last year, planning 8 track days this year) 2010 is to be the year I will bleed brakes before each event. I stand today 20 days from my first event of the season at Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds AL (where PSDS is held) so today was bleed brakes day. Over Christmas I had changed out the pads since they would not have passed the 3/16" minimum by the event date. While I was at it, I bought a liter of factory brake fluid (factory pads, factory fluid I'm just...

I've been having an intermittent Check Engine light, and during my last visit to the dealer, Jim Ellis in Atlanta (no affiliation), reading the fault codes seemed to indicate one bad Oxygen Sensor, Bank 1 (right side), pre-cat. The Oxygen Sensor, also known as the O2 Sensor, or Lambda Sensor does just what you might guess, measure oxygen in the exhaust gases. Voltage created by the sensor is proportional to how much oxygen is present, and the computer (DME) uses this signal along with other...

First, you should read the article Replacing Engine Oil and Filter written by Gator Bite. The directions and photos in that article will be invaluable for changing oil and filter on your Gen 2 Cayman as there are only a few differences. Second, although I have changed quite a bit, this article is adapted from an article by Helo Driver. If you have changed oil and filter on your Chevrolet or Ford, you should be able to change them on your Cayman. I might, however, caution that your...

Changing a battery or suffering a dead battery is something that all of us will experience at one point or another. Our Caymans are very sophisticated. They contain many computerized control modules that may/can/will be effected by loss of battery voltage. This technical article will present the many instructions that Porsche recommends to their mechanics after loss and replacement of battery power. 1 Control Unit Memory Values and faults stored in the control units can be lost if the...

Thanks to our wonderful Porsche engineers, gone are the days that the first inkling that you have a problem with your brake lights, is when you get pulled over by a cop to let you know that a light is out, and possibly even write you a fix-it ticket (let's face it, none of us enjoys getting pulled over, even for a minor infraction like that). So, I was pleasantly surprised when my car informed me that I had a problem with right brake light a couple of days ago. I figured that this...

This is just a summary of what consolidated, FT and L8Apx have done. :thanks: First thing first, disconnect the battery and leave the trunk and hatch open. Leave them open until you are done with the DME. Background information, I am using Traqmate complete kit and Traqdata II. E6-RPM green/blue into RPM port D16-TPS violet into A0 port

Variously called the Emergency Brake, Handbrake, Parking Brake, sometimes the system wears, or loosens up, so that too much movement of the lever is required for braking. The parking brake cable cannot be adjusted. Adjustment is via threaded barrel adjusters inside the rear brake rotors. Access to the adjuster can be made through a wheel bolt hole. Brake rotor removal is NOT required. The brakes should be fully applied if you pull the hand lever 5 clicks. Installing wheel studs will...

After missing the accelerator once or twice during heel-toe downshifts, I decided to install a set of pedals in my Cayman S. A friend had suggested the Rennline Aluminum Pedals and Santa Claus brought me a set in 2008. Here's what I received: https://caymanregister.org/picture.php?albumid=287&pictureid=2851 https://caymanregister.org/picture.php?albumid=287&pictureid=2852 https://caymanregister.org/picture.php?albumid=287&pictureid=2853 ...

Hopefully this helps some people because it was difficult to find and required microphones etc. This was a left rear cabin creaking/cracking noise that would show up during suspension travel, throttle in turns and pulling in and out of driveways. Additionally it sounded like it was coming from the left rear upper shock mount while driving. This made it difficult because it pointed toward a suspension issue, which was incorrect. All interior plastic was removed, bolts checked, hatch checked,...
