Sweet, sign me up. Now there will be evidence of me flying up on and then past all lesser vehicles that I'm forced to share the road with 😜

Re: 99 C2. Arctic Silver 6MT

Thanks. It's been a great car for the past 13 years that I've owned it. Unfortunately my kids are all much older and bigger now(teenagers) and it makes things a lot more challenging at times than I would like...taking multiple kids somewhere, going to my daughters softball games with her gear, etc.....

Re: Replacing the MAF (mass airflow) sensor

Just went thru this as well. CEL light came on twice over a few weeks and borrowed a friends durametric. Bought the tamper-proof T20 torx at Autozone(although had to go back after the first one didn't fit, apparently there are more than one style so I would suggest trying it for fit before you leave...

Re: What did you do to/with your 996 today?

Dang, just when I was feeling good about this... but all kidding aside, I did unscrew the oil cap awhile back while it was running without any issues or difficulties which I thought were indicative of a vacuum leak. At the end of the day, it's a 20 yr old car so I know stuff needs to be replaced, ju...

Re: What did you do to/with your 996 today?

I did what a lot of us do...combed the blogs to find possible causes and fixes. One was simply disconnect the battery for 20-50 seconds and see if it resets, which is what I did and it worked, CEL is gone. Maybe it will come back on or maybe it was just a fluke since it came on right after filling u...

Re: What did you do to/with your 996 today?

400 mile roundtrip in wintry conditions today... about 50 miles from home the CEL comes on and stays on. Borrowed a buddies OBD and it gave me P1124 and 1126. Everything seems fine, so I'm trying figure out if it's the MAF sensor or something else.

Re: Stripped my oil drain plug

I had the same thing happen to me a few months ago. Fortunately I was able to remove the plug without any issues, although it did cost me time, hassle and oil. I replaced it with the stock plug which cost approx. $5.00.

Re: What did you do to/with your 996 today?

Front lower control arms creaking was driving me nuts, watched a YouTube video showing how to poke a small hole into the bushing arm rubber cover and injected a lubricant. Seems to have taken care of the problem and a lot cheaper than replacing the control arms. Curious to see how long it will last.
