Summary

TLDRIn this detailed account, the narrator recounts the journey of purchasing a Porsche with a known engine issue at a bank sale for a scrap value price. The car, suspected to have a loose timing chain, was taken to a dealer for a potential free recall fix. Upon diagnosis, it was found that the car had multiple misfires and fuel-related issues, with a slack timing chain identified as the likely culprit. Despite an open recall for a known problem with the cam adjuster bolts, the dealership's service suggested costly replacements unrelated to the timing system. Dissatisfied, the owner decided to tackle the repair himself, removing the valve covers, and discovering worn-out timing chain guides. With a DIY approach, he replaced the timing set, including the chain, guides, and tensioner, using a kit purchased online for a fraction of the dealer's quote. After a thorough reassembly and a surprising discovery that the car wouldn't start due to an empty fuel tank, the car was brought back to life, running smoothly and vindicating the owner's decision to self-repair. The video serves as a testament to the importance of vehicle diagnostics and the potential savings from DIY repairs.

He takes it to a dealer for a potential recall fix that could resolve the engine problem for free. The car is in a precarious state, likened to a 'ticking time bomb,' and the video aims to diagnose the issue with the timing chain that is suspected to be the root cause of the engine troubles.

05:00

📝 Dealing with Dealership and Diagnostics

The narrator recounts the process of taking the car to the dealership and receiving a list of recommended repairs from a service technician. These include tire replacement, brake service, spark plugs, and engine mounts. The narrator questions the necessity and cost of these repairs, especially since the engine's misfiring and timing issues were not addressed. He also emphasizes the value of having a diagnostic tool like Carly for DIY car owners to understand and manage their car's issues.

10:04

🔍 Investigating the Timing System

The narrator investigates the Porsche's timing system by removing the valve covers and discovering that the tension in the timing chain seems fine. However, upon closer inspection with a scope camera, he finds that the original bolts on the cam adjuster were never replaced as part of the recall, and a piece of the plastic guide is found to be loose, indicating excessive wear. This wear could cause the slack in the timing chain and potentially lead to more serious engine damage.

15:05

🔧 DIY Engine Work and Spark Plug Inspection

The narrator proceeds with DIY work on the Porsche by removing the valve covers and inspecting the engine. He finds that the engine mounts appear to be in good condition, contrary to the dealership's recommendation. He also checks the spark plugs and decides they are in good enough condition to be cleaned and reused, saving a significant amount of money compared to the dealership's quote for new ones.

20:07

🧐 Further Inspection and Timing Chain Replacement

The narrator continues to inspect the engine, focusing on the timing cover and related components. He finds plastic shards from the timing guide and realizes that the original timing chain and guides are worn out, necessitating their replacement. Despite the dealership's high quote for labor, the narrator decides to replace the timing chain and guides himself, highlighting the car's good overall condition and potential value.

25:09

🔨 Reassembling the Engine and Testing

After replacing the worn-out timing components, the narrator reassembles the engine. He uses special tools to ensure the timing is set correctly and torques all the necessary bolts.

Transcripts

00:00

I just bought this Porsche at a bank

00:02

sale where was marked with an engine

00:03

issue and because of that it sold for

00:06

basically scrap value and I took it

00:08

straight to the dealer because it's

00:09

under an open recall that might fix its

00:12

engine totally free now I brought this

00:14

car here on the trailer because in its

00:16

current state it's a ticking Time Bomb

00:18

let me show you

00:23

why this loose timing chain is likely

00:26

the root of our engine issues but let's

00:28

go back just a few hours when the car

00:30

was first dropped off the transporter

00:32

left it in a super convenient spot right

00:35

here in the middle of traffic he

00:36

obviously moved it on and off his truck

00:38

so it's no surprise that it runs and

00:40

[Music]

00:43

drives okay all right it's running uh

00:47

really crummy that's

00:52

good look at this guy he's doing an oil

00:55

change here in the middle of the

00:58

road this thing has a really bad Idol as

01:02

soon as I got the Porsche home I plugged

01:04

in my scanner so we could read its

01:05

engine codes and right off the bat we

01:07

found a crankshaft cam shaft correlation

01:10

code along with multiple misfires and a

01:12

few fuel related issues at this point I

01:15

popped the oil cap and found this slack

01:17

in our timing chain it's pretty obvious

01:19

this thing is out of time and several

01:21

years ago Porsche issued a recall for

01:23

their cam adjuster bolts not only on the

01:24

Panamera but also for the Cayenne that

01:26

has the same exact V8 engine basically

01:29

these bolts that hold the gear to the

01:31

cam adjuster would back out or break and

01:33

this is all attached to the cam shaft

01:35

when this would happen the adjuster will

01:37

spin but the cam shaft will stay put and

01:40

that'll definitely put you out of time

01:43

now I have the recall paper right here

01:46

and it basically tells you how to

01:47

pinpoint a broken cam adjuster bolt it

01:50

starts with a set of diagnostic trouble

01:52

codes and the codes listed here are

01:54

nearly a onetoone match of what we've

01:56

already generated with Carly our

01:58

diagnostic to down the list it tells you

02:01

to remove the oil cap and take a look at

02:04

the cam shaft itself and watch it as you

02:06

turn the motor over to see if this

02:09

adjuster which again is basically a big

02:11

gear spins in sync with the cam shaft so

02:14

we went ahead and did this and

02:16

everything did spin in syn like it

02:18

should so I took things one step further

02:20

and put a scope camera down this oil cap

02:23

to take a look at these adjuster bolts

02:25

because I just couldn't believe that

02:26

this recall was never done and it turns

02:29

out the bolts that came installed in

02:31

this car were definitely the factory

02:33

Originals you could tell because the

02:34

originals were a security Tor with a dot

02:37

in the center of the head now when I

02:38

bought this car I had checked the VIN

02:40

and saw this open recall but I called

02:42

the dealership to verify they said it

02:44

had never been done and this is all

02:45

insane considering this recall was

02:47

issued again several years ago from

02:49

Porsche and this car has 180,000 Mi

02:53

160,000 of that 180,000 were done from

02:56

the first owner and he serviced this car

02:59

religious ly so how it was never done is

03:02

beyond me but the other side is that it

03:05

doesn't seem like the bolts that are

03:07

known to fail have failed so it's very

03:10

likely that just another part of our

03:12

timing system at 180,000 Mi has been

03:15

worn out but the dealership's got to

03:17

mess with the timing system and if you

03:19

think about it they've got to take those

03:21

old style bolts out when they torque the

03:24

new ones back in they're going to be

03:25

putting tension on our adjusters our cam

03:29

gears and they risk slipping those gears

03:33

with a loose timing chain so while they

03:35

could probably perform this recall while

03:37

being very very careful it's a bit risky

03:40

for a dealership to take a car that's

03:42

out of time mess with the timing system

03:45

and hand it back to the customer without

03:47

the very least telling me about the

03:49

issues that it currently has or just

03:51

game plan it with me one way or another

03:53

either way we're going to drop this

03:54

thing at the dealership and hopefully

03:55

they can tell us what's wrong with it

03:56

and if we get really lucky maybe they're

03:58

even able to fix what wrong with it and

04:01

give it back to us all under the

04:03

recall before we get it into the uh

04:05

dealership we should take these stickers

04:09

off this car is really Shifty to run

04:12

listen to

04:16

this uh we have to make it from right

04:20

here to just across the street without

04:23

it skipping time let's see if we can do

04:27

it that's probably the way we should

04:30

have taken this into the dealer but I

04:33

like to live

04:46

dangerously so it's been like 3 days

04:47

since we dropped this Porche off at the

04:49

dealership I finally heard from them

04:51

they sent me a text message uh with a

04:53

video attached to it and the video is

04:55

the tech that's working on the car uh in

04:57

the service Bay and he's basically just

05:00

recommending additional things be done

05:02

to the car while it's still there at the

05:03

dealer I won't play his audio but I'll

05:05

just basically tell you what he's saying

05:07

he first starts off by saying all the

05:09

tires are 6 years old so he recommends

05:12

that we get those replaced and

05:14

recommends that we do the front brakes

05:15

at the same time because they're worn

05:18

but anyway he recommends we get a set of

05:20

spark plugs while we're there and then

05:23

this is the most interesting part of the

05:25

whole entire video he says that your

05:27

engine is vibrating heavily so I suggest

05:29

this set of replacement motor mounts now

05:32

in my opinion the engine is vibrating

05:35

heavily because it's continuously

05:36

misfiring because it's out of time but

05:39

he doesn't mention anything about the

05:40

timing system he says it's uh basically

05:42

ready to be picked up at that point I

05:45

get on the phone with the service

05:46

advisor who's a guy in the office not

05:49

working on the car and he has that list

05:51

of stuff that the tech uh basically

05:53

recommended I had him price it out just

05:55

wait till you hear the price on some of

05:57

this stuff it's outrageous it sure

05:59

doesn't sound like they did any

06:01

additional work in the timing Department

06:02

maybe I was totally kidding myself and

06:05

just surprised that nothing was

06:06

mentioned but anyway we won't know what

06:08

happened until we get the car and check

06:10

it out for ourselves all right I got my

06:12

paperwork here I'm assuming this is

06:13

going to sound identical to the way we

06:15

left it to him let's see

06:22

here yeah same all right I'm a bit

06:24

surprised at the dealership here and to

06:26

be completely honest I wasn't looking

06:27

for some sort of free major service

06:30

along with a new timing set and

06:32

everything done at their dime that would

06:34

be totally unreasonable I was just

06:36

looking for them to pinpoint the issue

06:39

which I think you could probably do with

06:41

the valve covers off that's as far as

06:43

they got during the recall and if they

06:45

were an amazing dealer when they

06:47

pinpointed that issue they would have

06:49

said hey you know you got a major

06:50

problem but we've already started taking

06:52

apart your engine to do the recall so

06:54

we'll take that sort of time off your

06:56

bill here's what it's going to cost you

06:59

uh but instead they suggested I get new

07:02

motor mounts and wait till you hear how

07:04

much they were $

07:08

4,346 for a set of engine mounts

07:11

installed along with that they quoted

07:14

$2,587 for front pads and rotors

07:17

honestly brakes are super expensive at

07:19

the dealership you should never get them

07:20

done there and uh last was pretty insane

07:24

as well spark plugs

07:26

$2,246 they look super simple to get to

07:29

and we'll have them out here in a moment

07:30

because I think we're going to start

07:32

ripping this engine apart and see if we

07:34

can't figure out what's wrong with it

07:36

but this is where I urge you guys I've

07:39

said it in a ton of videos to get a

07:42

diagnostic tool we knew more than

07:46

apparently the dealership teched with

07:49

this little tool here course charges

07:51

like $300 an hour now call him up I

07:54

swear to you I couldn't believe one he

07:55

told me it's $300 a labor hour this is

07:58

well less than bucks and the cool thing

08:00

about Carly is that it's a full system

08:02

scanner for a ton of different makes and

08:04

models you know the cheaper tools

08:05

usually will just tell you just your

08:06

engine codes this will tell you

08:08

everything wrong from your engine

08:09

transmission brakes to all the

08:11

electronics and the interior and

08:13

everything so provides dealer level

08:16

Diagnostics uh and they take it one step

08:18

further with something called smart

08:19

mechanic so if you have a common issue

08:22

on your specific car they'll have a

08:24

support article there ready for you it

08:27

will tell you exactly what your problem

08:28

is and then will give you a list of the

08:30

most common fixes for that problem so

08:33

this tool was definitely designed with

08:34

the DIY in mind no matter your level of

08:38

skill I still find it very important to

08:41

have a diagnostic reader if you own a

08:43

car so at the very least you have the

08:45

knowledge to know what's going on with

08:47

your car because it's the difference of

08:49

you owning your own car or the

08:52

dealership owning you I've left a link

08:54

to this tool down in the description now

08:57

we've got to figure out what our problem

09:00

is with this Porsche we're going to

09:01

start simply by just removing the valve

09:04

covers just like the dealership did this

09:06

engine doesn't look too terribly bad

09:08

like you see these covers here that look

09:10

like they just kind of get out of the

09:12

way yeah that was easy all right the

09:14

other side let's see I actually stuck

09:18

this motor mount here over this thing

09:22

does this slide under no it doesn't

09:24

slide under so I mean it just will come

09:27

out with one bolt and this will probably

09:28

spin upward

09:30

by the way they wanted to sell us motor

09:31

mounts look at that thing that motor

09:33

mount looks brand new otherwise it's a

09:36

matter of just kind of pulling and

09:40

moving just disconnect everything here

09:43

pull these ignition coils out the valve

09:45

covers don't look like they'll be too

09:47

difficult to get out of place maybe a

09:49

couple of tight screws to get to but

09:52

otherwise not bad considering it's a

09:54

portion they charge a fortune for any

09:56

work on it at the dealer

10:03

cool all

10:06

right there we

10:09

go let's see what we

10:17

[Music]

10:24

got there you

10:26

go right here that gasket should be new

10:29

so that was good there all right oo

10:32

still a little warm from us moving it

10:35

and so oil cover was here dude what's

10:38

going on look at this before there was I

10:42

could literally slap this against the

10:43

valve cover now it's got perfect

10:47

tension look this isn't moving at all I

10:49

guess the slack could be

10:51

elsewhere

10:53

or is it the hydraulic tensioner is

10:57

going to bleed off and we've got a worn

10:58

hydraulic tensioner I thought it was for

11:00

sure the GU well we still got to get

11:02

this side off and that'll help us figure

11:05

did he change these no no okay good good

11:08

call so if we look on the back here

11:10

these guys here and according to the uh

11:13

service advisor they just take one out

11:15

at a time and I think there's four of

11:18

them in there and they just put another

11:19

one in that's why he said that they

11:21

didn't have to mess with the timing but

11:23

you would think they were putting torque

11:26

against this right there's a a tool

11:30

that goes against the cam shafts back

11:31

here you can actually see where the

11:32

timing dots are right there and right

11:36

there uh and it only you know fits in

11:39

one place You' think if they were

11:40

putting torque against this they would

11:41

want to put that timing tool in wouldn't

11:43

you think if they were changing the

11:44

bolts you know so anyway this is crazy

11:47

that there's perfect tension so there's

11:49

more to this story either the hydraulic

11:51

tensioner got a problem there's slack in

11:53

the chain elsewhere which doesn't make a

11:55

lot of sense turn the engine over by

11:57

hand well we're going to do that let's

11:59

let's get that other cover off first all

12:00

right here we go let's see what do we

12:05

got again we got perfect tension on this

12:09

side too how did you check the tension

12:11

before I literally stuck my finger on

12:14

this and it the oil engine cap and it

12:15

would just hit the valve uh cover so you

12:17

weren't able to check this side at all

12:19

definitely

12:21

not all

12:24

right there we

12:26

go perfect look at that all right

12:35

I think I see something Mike this is

12:37

unbelievable but it's kind of exactly

12:39

what we thought and uh well I think Mike

12:41

even already sees it Mike what do you

12:43

see I see the a piece of the plastic

12:46

guide right here just a piece though you

12:47

don't see a lot of the plastic guide

12:49

just a piece it's actually quite loose

12:50

so you want to get a picture of it

12:51

before it falls deeper into the

12:55

engine oh there you go there's some good

12:57

slack in the chain okay okay so it's

12:59

really dependent on the position the

13:01

chain is in and where that plastic is

13:03

moving at the time let's see we got the

13:05

scope so you can see it a little bit

13:07

better but you see that so that's it's

13:12

pieces of the guide bunching up in there

13:15

it's all broken up now look I want you

13:17

to switch it from this side switch it to

13:18

this side you could see there's like

13:21

literally just one Shard of it left and

13:24

the rest of it's straight metal take a

13:25

look see there you go there's the bridge

13:28

guide right there and there's just a

13:30

fragment of plastic hanging on for dear

13:33

life in the corner here that guide is

13:36

completely gone you could see A Shard of

13:38

plastic just hanging out right there so

13:41

my question is okay you got to figure

13:44

the tech the tech had the engine just

13:46

like we have it here both valve covers

13:47

off in order to do the recall that's as

13:49

um disassembled as this engine was okay

13:52

something like this should he have

13:54

spotted that again from the naked eye

13:56

here you can see that that's straight

13:57

metal and there should be a little bit

14:00

of plastic on the end the plastic spans

14:02

the entire way of that guide it normally

14:05

looks something like this that little

14:07

thin piece of plastic is basically the

14:09

barrier between the timing chain and the

14:11

metal bridge that it runs on after

14:13

seeing nearly 200,000 Mi on this Porsche

14:16

it's got to just be worn to bits and

14:18

even though it's probably only a

14:19

millimeter or two thick the difference

14:21

is enough to cause slack in the chain

14:23

and it's got to be why we're out of time

14:25

driving this thing right now with that

14:27

little thin plastic strip ining would be

14:29

like uh hopping on a public Wi-Fi

14:32

without using nordvpn at any moment a

14:34

good time could turn into a bad time

14:37

because your online life is vulnerable

14:39

to trackers and cyber criminals but with

14:41

just one tap or one click nordvpn

14:43

encrypts your data by redirecting your

14:45

traffic through a remote server making

14:47

it untrackable and keeping your personal

14:49

data yours and since you can virtually

14:51

change locations you can take advantage

14:53

of geographical based pricing and where

14:55

that's really helped me out is when I'm

14:57

shopping for European car Parts on these

15:00

projects you know a lot of these parts

15:02

are way more plentiful overseas which

15:04

generally makes them a bit cheaper and

15:07

on some of these popular Marketplace and

15:08

auction sites they're listings that are

15:11

simply just hidden from searches here in

15:13

the states so when I VPN over to England

15:16

I'll unlock a ton of new listings and

15:19

I'll sometimes pay like less than half

15:21

of what I would normally pay here in the

15:23

states simply because I'm using nordvpn

15:26

and I've been a paid member of nordvpn

15:28

over Last 5 Years here it's something I

15:31

use on a daily basis and right now when

15:33

you visit nordvpn.com samrack or hit the

15:36

link in the description you're going to

15:38

get four months for free when you sign

15:39

up for a 2-year plan these plans start

15:42

at like $3 a month so it's very nominal

15:44

cost to secure your online life and you

15:47

can find all this over at nordvpn.com

15:51

samrack now from what I read the

15:52

dealership actually quotes an engine out

15:54

job to the tuna like 30 labor hours in

15:57

order to do a timing job on both the

16:00

Panamera and the Cayenne but I'm trying

16:02

to figure out why that's the case

16:04

because if you look at the front of the
