 Recently purchased Cayman S.  Records are not clear but seems brake fluid has not been flushed since July 2012. Should it be flushed soon ?




Ticking noise intermittent

Just replaced one O2 sensor and thermostat.  In process of burping the coolant.  Noticed ticking sound now that the engine cover is off.  Not sure if related to the repair?  Seems like it is coming from the fuel injectors, since I listened via a metal rod touched to the fuel pipe.  The ticking starts up after two minutes of starting when at idle.  Rate of ticking seems to keep time with engine but then accelerates even as engine stays idle.  This seems to suggest a pump separate from engine cranking.  It comes and goes.  Is this a problem?  Should it send a fault code or other signal that c

Lots of white smoke and engine codes P2187 andP0301

So I have codes P0301 adn P2187. I have no engine lights that cam on just white smoke comes out of the exhuast at starting. A big plume in fact. I am thinking a oil air seprator. I have had the O2 sensors codes come up for a while now and clear them Hopfully I haven't ruined a cylider. It states a misfire and being to lean at start. Any help would be great.

Happy turkey day all as well.

Slow start once the engine is hot?


Trouble is that my Cayman is very hard to start once it has warmed up. It fires right up the first time you start it in the morning. But if you stop for a short time it has a very hard time starting. If is parked for a few hours it will start right up. 

The battery has been checked and is fine. The starter works just fine if the car is cool so I am thinking it is good. 

Just wanted to see if anyone else has had this issue? 

My Cayman is an S Sport limited edition. This may be a problem that these have?
