Has anyone tried replacing the 981 oil filter housing with the housing from a 3.4L 991? The 991 housing has a 36mm "nut" molded into the end and would be a lot easier than trying to use a 14 flute tool that slips around the housing and doesn't allow a straight extension angle...
I took my Cayman to my Indy Porsche specialist for an oil change. After watching them change the oil, I came to the conclusion that it is not a do it yourself job. It tool them an hour and a half to change the oil. They had a hard time getting there software to reset the service notification...
Anyone know what the two coaxial wires are that run in front of the cabin air filter (in the frunk)?
The left wire runs into a blue receptacle and the right wire runs into a pigtail. Looks like it might be used for the windshield wipers?
Car is a 2010 Cayman S.
Viewing the car from back to front, there is oil leaking down on parts to the right hand side of the oil filter. The oil filter is clean so the oil leak is not from there. Is this the AOS failure and now leaking oil? I haven't noticed white smoke from the exhaust. Thanks.
I just changed my oil on my 06 Boxster s and was wondering if inside the oil filter canister there is a bypass for
cold engine starts and cold weather.I use a 5/40 oil and it gets a bit cold here in Canada in the early spring late fall
before storage.I noticed that the filters start to cave in...
Just changed my oil, noticed small flakes in the oil filter. Not a lot, but there is some. Is this normal or should I be concerned? Any feedback would be much appreciated.
The car is a 2008 Cayman S with 52,000 miles and the oil has just under 5k miles on it, and prior to this oil change, I...
From what I see in the Maintenance book all that is required beside a number of inspections at 20,000 miles is:
1. Oil and filter change
2. inside vehicle - replace particle filter element
3. luggage compartment (front) - air intake pre filter - change filter element
4. change brake fluid...
Sorry for the crazy question but it is based on research I have done before asking the question. I need to ask you guys to be certain. Does the 2007 Cayman base 1 have a fuel filter?
My research says it does not.
I have bad gas in the fuel tank and we flushed out all of the gas from the tank...
Hello fellow enthusiast,
I get a flashing CEL about 20 seconds after i start my 06 boxster s every morning. Upon doing a fault code scan the following errors are displayed;
From what ive researched so far it is somesort of misfire but the car doesnt feel like its missing...
I've had difficulty finding oil filters for my 2016 Cayman GTS, even though its been out a couple of years, and is effectively the same engine as the 2014 Cayman S. I just looked on Mahle's website and they don't even list an oil filter for our cars. I've found Wix, but no Mahle . Mann shows HU...
I just wanted to make a PSA: DO NOT buy the K&N air filter for the 987. It does not fit. I fiddled with that stupid thing after installing my GT3 plenum for about an hour and there was no way to install it. I returned it and ordered a BMC air filter. The BMC came in and popped right into place...
Just needed to vent/wallow in my sorrows over my failed spark plug swap attempt today. I am a vehement DIY'er. I've done everything on all of my previous cars from full head/intake/tb swaps, full exhaust swaps, full brake jobs, axles, belts, plugs, wires, coils, CV boots, cooling...
How much $$$$ do you spend per year for maintenance ?? My first year on an '08 S that I got with 61k miles and drove another 8.5k.
At 64k service, Mobl One, drain plug washer, Mahle oil filter, air filter, cabin filter, tool to reset service reminder (light not on but I reset it anyway). Total...
Can anyone tell me how this would come to be?
Just worried I might have overfilled it a little last oil change.
And is this filter ready for change?

So Porsche apparently recommends just changing the filter every 2 years, but an oil change once a year? Is that correct?
I thought the filter should always be changed when you do an oil change?
My last oil change was a year and 3 months ago, so I'm due. But (embarrassingly), I've only driven...
