2013 PCA Zone 5 Presidents and Zone Representative
ZONE 5 REP
Drifting: To Plate or Not to Plate -- That is the Question!
By John Hamilton, Region President
The changes in Texas law effective
September 1 reinstated
a fine for not having a front
license plate. One of our long-term
members, Milton Barley, did some
extensive research on the subject
and sent around his findings:
“1) Over a year ago, HB2357 was passed, which was an
attempt to streamline and clarify a number of points
in the motor vehicle registration and licensing laws,
and it “inadvertently” omitted the provision for a fine
for not having license plate(s) on a vehicle. The net
result was that there was a law with no penalty, and
almost all jurisdictions stopped trying to write tickets
on it. Technically, no front plate was still a ‘probable
cause’ for a traffic stop, and that was your greatest risk.
“2) Last year, HB 657 was introduced, to change
the law to require only one plate in the rear, and
that bill died in committee, due mainly to opposition
by law enforcement. Their latest opposition is
partially based on new camera/software technology
which allows them to randomly scan plates,
looking for outstanding wants and warrants.
“3) Last year, HB 625 was introduced and passed,
which adds back the provision for a fine of up to $200
for driving a vehicle without current license plate(s).
This bill became effective September 1, 2013.
“In summary, it appears that we go back to the way it
was in 2012 and earlier, and it will be up to the local
jurisdictions to determine what level of enforcement
takes place. We are, in my opinion, left to the tender
mercies and attitude of the officer who stops you,
and then, how you present yourself (courteous and
friendly goes a long way, I think). I also believe that if
you are driving a Porsche, it is probably
best to not use some story about
not being able to find a bracket or
‘the dealer said I didn’t need one.’
Most of them have heard that line
and don’t like to hear it again.”
Thank you, Milton, for your
research, insight, and recommendations.
By the way, it should also be
noted that there has been a Texas
court case that ruled that having
your license plate in the front windshield
does not meet the intent of
the law, and that your plate must be
attached to the front of the vehicle.
ALEXIS A. V. CAMPBELL, Proprietor
1235 William D. Tate Ave
Grapevine, TX 76051
So the final decision is left up to you, the Porsche
owner. Were you stopped before September, 2012 when
the fine was still in place? Do you think having the fine
back will increase the likelihood of being stopped now?
There is no perfect answer, but it’s up to you!
Mav of the Month
As some of you may have heard, our Drivers’ Education
Chair, Lori Mauthe, has relocated to a different
part of the country due to employment. Thus, we
started running an ad in Slipstream for a new DE
Chair. Well, one day this summer, in
walks Maverick member Chris Tabor
and says he’s interested. After an
in-depth investigation of the job and
its responsibilities, Chris accepted the
position. So a huge thank-you to Chris
and all the great Maverick volunteers
who step-up when help is needed.
And to Chris, as a token of our appreciation,
enjoy your Gift Certificate to

full swing, with
scheduled for October
-- how many
can you attend?
Saturday, Oct 5 is our Cars &
Cattle Poker Rally and Concours
d’Non-Elegance (see ad below
for details). Wondering what the
heck that is? A Poker Run is a
type of rally in which participants
stop at various locations along the
route and pick up a playing card.
At the end of the route, whoever
has the best poker hand wins. As
for the Concours d’Non-Elegance
-- well, it’s a car show at a working
cattle ranch. ‘Nuf said?
Sunday the 6th is our annual Time
Trial held at MotorSport Ranch. If
you haven’t registered by the time
you read this, it’s probably too late!
The next weekend consists of our
annual Swap Meet on Saturday the
12th, again hosted by Zim’s Autotechnik
in Bedford. Got a part you
no longer need, or are you looking
for a used part for the right price?
The Swap Meet is great for both.
Sunday the 13th is a redux of the
very popular Sunday Drive to the
San Martiño Winery in Rockwall
that was held in 2011. John Harvey’s
Sunday Drive crew has chosen
a route that they know you will enjoy,
to be followed by a picnic lunch
(which you bring with you); the
winery asks that you purchase a bottle
of wine, as there are no outside
beverages allowed. They also offer
wine tastings at $8 for five samples.
The weekend of Oct 26-27 is when
Maverick Region hosts its PCA Club
Race and DE at Eagles Canyon
Raceway. If you have never attended
a Club Race and are interested
in finding out more about it, come
on out to Eagles Canyon, north of
Decatur, to see what it’s all about.
We can always use volunteers as
well, so if you feel like contributing
your time and seeing what goes on
behind the scenes, contact Wendy
Shoffit at firstname.lastname@example.org to
see what positions need filling.
Finally, our annual Founders’
Day banquet will be held this
year on Saturday, Nov 2 -- see the
ad on page 17 for details. This
year’s event, our 51st, will be a
return to normal for us after last
year’s big 50th Anniversary blowout,
but it will be a fitting look
back at the year nonetheless.
Maverick Minutes: September Board Meeting
By Renee Farinella, Region Secretary September 4, 2013
began the meeting
new and visiting
Jim and Linda Curzan, as well
as our incoming DE chair Chris
Tabor, praising the club for how
well we function in general as an
organization. Former Social Chair
Christy Payne sat in on the meeting
as well, as she is assisting current
Social Chair Tracy Robertson
with several upcoming events.
Also, because Vice President Gareth
Maurice was unable to attend,
John gave Gareth’s report, requesting
up to $400 for a graphics
package to be used to create Slipstream
event promotional ads. After
some discussion regarding version
and necessity, this was approved.
Flowers were purchased and
a $100 donation request was
made for Hope Shelter, on
behalf of longtime contributor
Maverick Ed Mayo at the passing
of his mother. Approved.
The 2014 Nomination Committee
announcement was supposed have
been ready for publication earlier
this year; however, all elected board
members are re-running for 2014.
John is sending an email to the
Region membership to serve as
notice that the Executive Council
offices are open for nomination.
Thank you to John Harvey, Travis
Howard, and Carey Spreen, who
volunteered to serve as the nominating
committee. More specific
information is available on page 14.
Tracy Robertson said the social
calendar is all lined up through
January 2014. Cars and Cattle is
scheduled for Saturday, October 5,
for which Tourmeister John Harvey
kindly mapped a great route. The
event includes a poker run, prizes,
and Concours. Should be a fun
photo op. Christy Payne is helping
with our annual Founders’ Day
event, which will be held Saturday,
November 2 at the NYLO hotel
in Las Colinas. She asked board
members to help get donations
lined up for a really great auction!
Think holiday! She will send a
reminder to everyone to be reaching
out for donations. Chris Tabor
volunteered to donate a fancy
car wash from one of his “Shine”
facilities over near Fort Worth.
Thank you, Chris! Our charity, the
Huffaker Hughes Hope House
is the beneficiary of the Silent
Auction, and their annual holiday
party is planned for Saturday,
December 21 from noon to 2pm.
As a reminder, the raffle tickets
for the one-year lease on a Porsche
Macan are available for purchase
from board members at various
events for $50 each, as well as
through a link on the mavpca.
org home page. Anyone can purchase
these tickets; sales are not
limited to PCA members only.
Next up was Slipstream Editor
Carey Spreen, who highlighted
an opportunity for folks to
participate in an SCCA “Rally
Master” school, on September
21. He also expressed support on
behalf of several folks who would
like for Don Sebert to bring his
many years of experience to chair
the Maverick Rally program.
Region Treasurer Jim Falgout
gave his report next by saying we
are in good fiscal health; the DE
tracks are paid for, and we are due
about $8,500 from our advertisers.
New Driver Education Chair
Chris Tabor appreciated the warm
welcome, and that he was looking
forward to participating with
the Mavericks in this way. He said
his group is ready to go for the
September 21-22 DE at Motor-
Sport Ranch; had some general
operational questions for discussion;
will meet with Lori Mauthe
for additional transitional info;
and made a suggestion to consider
breaking up the Blue and Green
run groups into faster and slower
sub-groups for increased efficiency.
Membership Co-Chairs Tom
and Susan Froehlich began their
report by mentioning that our
Region continues to grow, now at
an all-time high of 2,270 members,
including affiliates. They said that
we (as chairs and other board
members and volunteers) are
working to address the non-renewal
issues; further discussion ensued
at this point, and good ideas were
exchanged regarding a solution.
Concours Chair Andy Kay chimed
in and made a great suggestion:
Have we asked our members why
they join? I believe our collective
interest here is to maintain a highobjective
standard of continuing
to grow the value provisioning of
the club, and facilitate the best
interests of the membership.
Sunday Drive Chair John Harvey
was excited to say that there were
31 couples that made the drive
from the Metroplex to Boxstoberfest
in Fredericksburg, which was
held September 6-8, with over 200
cars total participating. The San
Martiño Ranch drive and wine
tasting event is ready to go for
Sunday, October 13! Additionally,
a Sunday Drive on November 17
to Fort Richardson is in the works,
and an event that he is calling the
Frick’n Toy Run (in honor of Jean
and Dave Frick, whose idea it was
for the event) will be on Sunday,
December 8. Please check the Maverick Region website
calendar regularly for all event details and updates.
Calendar Boy and Sunday Drive Deputy Brendan
Eagan said that their event route mapping predrives
are available for others to join, if interested.
PR chair Linda Bambina asked that someone write
an article to cover the Club Race in October, since
she and husband Alan will be at the PCA Escape in
California that weekend. We look forward to hearing
all about it and seeing some great pictures as well!
Tech Session Chair Ed Mullenix is planning
one of his always-informative Tech Sessions
for the January time frame; topics tbd.
Autocross and Time Trial Chair Travis Howard
reported that all is on track with his events. Please
check the Maverick Region website for details, and
don’t forget to register for the Time Trial at Motorsport
Ranch on Sunday, October 6, but note that only
entrants with track experience will be accepted.
Linda Bambina noted that Bill McBride, our
long-time Slipstream back cover advertiser for State
Farm, is retiring; Autobahn Porsche has taken
over as the full back cover advertiser. Club Race

Registrar Wendy Shoffit mentioned that she needs
volunteers for the Club Race at Eagles Canyon
Raceway on October 26-27. Please contact Wendy if
you have always wanted to get your feet wet in PCA
Club Racing but didn’t know how to get started.
We were excited to hear that Andy Kay expressed interest
in writing at least one article on the best practices
for the wash and detail of your Porsche! Stay tuned!
There was some discussion at this point of considering
changing the name of our Happy Hours to
something else like Dinners or Social Gatherings,
so as to make it more obvious that these monthly
get-togethers are for more than just drinks, as most
attendees stay for dinner afterwards. More brainstorming
to come on this, and of course if you, the
membership, have any ideas, please let us know!
John then did his routinely best Carnac imitation, and
awarded Mav of the Month to new DE chair Chris
Tabor. Chris, we’re glad you’re aboard and appreciate
all your insights, commitment, and support. Meeting
adjourned at 8:51pm.

Destination Restoration: Turn of the Page
By Ash Seidl-Staley
My 944 troubles of the past
few months have really
brought me to the point
where I truly don’t want to own a
water-cooled Porsche EVER again!
Obviously, this is an exaggerated
statement, but the circumstances
of my present situation really
do hurt, and bring me to the edge of insanity.
It all started to go downhill about two weeks after
I had my 944’s cylinder head re-surfaced and belts
changed. I was on my way from work, heading to
CCCC (aka Collin College) when the timing belt
snapped while I was at an Avenue K stop light. After
being honked at, flipped off by Plano’s finest, and
finally bumper-pushed off the road by a police officer,
I was able to begin trying to figure out what
my next course of action was going to be. I’m not
going to lie; at first, anger poured out of every
ounce of my being. I hated everything to do with
engines! But I quickly calmed and cooled down
as I assessed the damage in a CVS parking lot.
Taking off the nose plate and belt housing plate,
I found that the new timing belt was completely
shredded and wound up around the balance shaft
belt. Upon further inspection I found that the timing
belt pulley was crooked and offset as well. This
struck me as a little odd, so I reached in and spun
it only to find that it wouldn’t turn freely at first,
but when it did, it wobbled slightly as it turned.
The culprit for the breakdown was found!
Infamous engine murderer!

As I sat on the curb waiting for the tow truck, I
couldn’t help but wonder what Porsche was thinking
when they designed the 944 2.5L four cylinder as an interference
engine. I mean I understand that the counter-rotating
balance shafts make the four cylinder engine
feel as smooth as a flat six, but how can it be that
the only thing keeping the camshaft and valves in time
with the crank and pistons are two relatively cheap
rubber belts? Doesn’t it bother anyone else to know
that the shoddy rubber timing belt is just a ticking time
bomb of death, waiting to kill our engines? It seems
like a more sturdy chain-tensioned component should
have been installed, like on the 911s, but I’m not a
concept designer or an engineer so what do I know?
Instead of taking the 944 to a shop this time, I began
the work myself. I stripped the car down to the long
block (again) and sent the cylinder head off to the
machine shop (again). Thankfully, only one out of
the eight valves bent when the timing belt snapped, so
the process of purchasing my replacement parts and
gaskets came at a fraction of the shop’s quoted price.
With the help of my Uncle, we slowly but surely
began putting everything back together. Though
I have made it my mission to fix the car and bring
it back roaring to life, my mind has been made
up: the 944 has got to go. I currently have the
car up on Craigslist as it sits, and will continue to
raise the price as more of the to-do list becomes
completed; just waiting for a serious nibble.
Would you like to have your restoration project featured in
an upcoming issue of Slipstream? If so, contact me at
email@example.com so that we can put together an
article about it.

I Get Around: Words to Drive By
By Dick Badler
Editor’s Note: Denver resident Dick
Badler writes regularly for outlets that
include TFLCar.com, Planet-9.com,
and High Gear, the publication of
the Rocky Mountain Region of the
Porsche Club of America. Over the
years, Dick has owned six Porsches.
He still has number three, a ’78
911SC, which he bought in 1988.
these words with
when they were
learning to drive.
It worked. My
their teen years behind the wheel,
intact. Although I can’t quite say
the same thing about the Civic they
used, occasionally as a bumper car.
There was the incident where
the older one, parking her car in
front of the garage, said her foot
accidentally slipped off the brake
and onto the accelerator . . . the car
then slammed into the garage door.
She called me in the office,
and I had the presence of mind
to ask if she was all right. I’m
very proud of that.Then I called
my wife, and asked how the
garage door was... and she said
there was no garage door.
But the girls remember those
words, to this day. Which is the
point, and which got me thinking
about sayings for driving. And,
you know what? I couldn’t actually
think of many adages at all.
Oh, there’s the Stirling Moss’
comment about straightaways: “The
boring bits between the corners.”
And there’s the 911 mantra: “Slow
in, fast out.” There’s also the line
attributed to A.J. Foyt about driving
at Indy: “If you’re not scaring yourself
three times a lap, you’re going
Courtesy High Gear, the Rocky Mountain Region Newsletter
too slow.” Let us not forget, of
course, “Speed is a matter of money
. . . how fast do you want to go?”
I got an e-mail from the online
magazine Winding Road, offering
slogan tee shirts, but all they had
were “Keep Calm and Carry Speed”
and “It’s surprising how many
people, including Formula 1 drivers,
think the brakes are for slowing
the car down,” a quote which is
attributed to Mario Andretti.
Not exactly inspiring, are they?
Which is very ironic, because if
you’re a runner, you get inundated
with all manner of profundities.
One magazine, Runner’s World,
actually sends you a “Daily
Kick in the Butt” by email.
And it’s even more ironic, because
many of the lines I see relate to a
lot more than running . . . like competing
in general . . . and like life.
Take this one: “A man can fall
many times, but he isn’t a failure
until he begins to blame somebody
else,” attributed to Steve Prefontaine.
And another one from
Pre: “To give anything less than
your best is to sacrifice the gift.”
Here’s my favorite from Steve:
“A lot of people run a race to see
who’s the fastest. I run to see who
has the most guts . . . ” In point
of fact, the running world picks
up these quotes from all sorts of
places, and makes them their own.
Try this one: “Success is a peace
of mind, which is a direct result
of self-satisfaction in knowing
you did your best to become
the best that you are capable of
becoming” -- John Wooden.
Or: “Twenty years from now,
you will be more disappointed
by things you didn’t do than by
the ones you did. So throw off
the bowlines, sail away from the
safe harbor, and catch the trade
winds in your sails. Explore.
Dream. Discover” -- Mark Twain.
Or: “We must all suffer from
one of two pains; the pain of
discipline or the pain of regret.
The difference is that discipline
weighs ounces and lasts a moment
while regret weighs tons
and lasts a lifetime” -- Jim Rohn
Now, understand, I don’t see any
of this anywhere in the automotive
world, or motorsport world for that
matter. I don’t know why. Because
when it’s a hot and steamy day,
and you’re wearing a multi-layer
Nomex driving suit and full-face
helmet, and you’re fastened hard
into the roll-cage of your car, and
you’re pounding around a bullring
for an hour and a half, and
your pulse is soaring, and you’re
manic to get to the checkered flag,
first, l don’t care how good your
cool suit and your drinking tube
are -- it’s the same challenge.
Here’s how Patton described it:
“Now if you are going to win any
battle you have to do one thing.
You have to make the mind run the
body. Never let the body tell the
mind what to do. The body will always
give up. It is always tired morning,
noon, and night. But the body
is never tired if the mind is not
tired. You’ve always got to make the
mind take over and keep going.”
Ahh, that little voice. When I
ran my first half-marathon, I got
to mile 8 or 9 and started having
a conversation with that voice.
It was telling me to stop. And I
answered with “what would I say
to people?” And the voice kept
coming up with scenarios, so to
speak, like “I tripped” or “it was
too hot.” And my conscious kept
rejecting them, saying, “no that
won’t work, nobody will believe
me.” This went on and on, and on . . . until I
reached mile 12 and realized the end was in sight.
Here’s what you’re up against: “It’s very hard to
understand in the beginning that the whole idea is
not to beat the other runners. Eventually you learn
that the competition is against the little voice inside
you that wants to quit” -- Dr. George Sheehan.
So what’s the problem, drivers?
Try this one on: “Keep the dream in front of you. Never
let it go, regardless of how farfetched it might seem”
-- Hal Higdon.
Or the gray haired mantra: “Once you’re over the hill,
you pick up speed.”
Will they work for you? Only time -- your time -- will

Cliff’s Ramblings: Software Updates and Server Crashes
By Cliff Blackshear
Just a few weeks
ago, a 997
owner brings his
car in and reports
along, the radio
just goes off, then
comes back on at times.” We take
a look at the car. It is a 2011 model
with low miles. It is equipped with
a PCM (Porsche Communication
Most of the cars have a PCM
system with various add-on accessories.
It can play CDs, has XM radio,
Bluetooth to link to phone, Navigation,
a port for an iPod connection,
display back up camera, trip data,
etc., etc. It works well and usually
has a Bose amplifier speaker system.
The super high-end units are
equipped with Burmester systems.
Porsche constantly has updates
for these systems. We can access
software and update it. This
starts with a simple check of what
software level it currently has and
what update might be available,
so that is where we begin on the
997. No update available for this
type of issue. I start thinking it
has a hardware problem, and
maybe as the system warms up,
something internally is failing.
Before we can make a decision
on what we are going to do, a 2011
Cayenne comes in with the same
symptoms. Then a Panamera.
Hummm. I file a request with
Porsche technical support, and
supply all pertinent information
including VIN, mileage, and
software levels, plus we generate
analysis protocols for each vehicle
(these run several hundreds of
pages of raw data about each car).
Next, I get a phone call from
technical support. They are getting
these reports from all over the US
all at once. Engineering is on red
alert and DEFCON 1 has been declared.
I am then sent an email with
very specific instructions to gather
information from each PCM and
load it on a memory stick from the
onboard USB connection, transfer
it to my computer, and forward it
ASAP! I am told this seems to be affecting
only 2011 cars (all models).
Meanwhile they want us to
reset the systems to original factory
settings, erase any phone-
ooks, stored data of any type,
and retest, then report back.
The problem is still there.
In about 24 hours I get another
call, and am told that XM blasted
out a software update over the
weekend, which seems to be
where the issue started. We are
asked to disable XM in a few cars
and see what happens. So we go
to XM Enabling in our tester
and enter a 16-digit code that
disables the XM system, then
wait to see if problem goes away.
Lo and behold, it does. Then we
are told to stand by and ask our
Porsche owners to be patient.
Three days later, on PPN (Porsche
Partnership Network), a fix is
posted, with very specific instructions.
A link to a file is included,
and we put the file on a disc. We
are instructed to go into the PCM
system, reset it again to original factory
settings, disable XM, and load
the new file. Then re-enable XM,
clear any faults from all software in
all systems, and test. It works! We
are still dealing with this even now;
it takes about an hour to resolve.
So today, a car that had this issue
orbited into my radar zone when I
got to work. The owner had traveled
about 150 miles to get to us so
we could repair his 2011 Panamera
PCM system with a known good fix.
I go to PIWIS (Porsche Integrated
Workshop Information System)
to get the 16-digit enabling code
needed to complete the repair,
and find that Germany’s server
is down. Are You Serious?????
I get a call from technical, and
they want to inquire about a car
from last week that we had, regarding
the fact that the fix should
already have been implemented
during the build process. They
want more details about what we
found, and how we took care of
the issue. It was a noise issue in
a 2014 Cayman (long story).
After answering their questions,
I inquire if there is any way they
can get me some enabling codes
for an owner that is here and
waiting. “No,” I’m told, “We have
no access either,” and enabling
codes are not stored anywhere
else. Major server issue.
Just before we hang up he says,
“The system is back up.” I run to my
computer and get the codes, fix the
Panamera, and get the car cleaned
as quickly as we can. Good grief . . .
Computers can be my best friend
and my worst enemy.
Cheers all, and thank goodness
cooler weather is on the horizon.

Canyon, and then Hallett looming.

Tech Corner: OH THANK HEAVEN -- Um, Maybe Not!
By Ed Mullenix, Tech Session Chair
Larry O, PhD
type, and current
owner of DE
J’s ’01 Boxster S,
had a catastrophic engine failure.
Larry has become quite fast, and
with “sticky Hoosiers,” the engine
finally became a casualty of Eagles
Canyon Raceway. Without any of
the after-market mods to preclude
oil starvation on hard cornering,
Larry’s crankshaft and number
six connecting rod gave out.
Larry brought me the car just
about the time I was moving the
shop to Carrollton. After an unintentional
three week delay, we
totally rebuilt his M96 3.2. This
time, it had the “LN” two quart
deep sump mod, the “x-51” oil
baffle, and an underdrive crankshaft
pulley. I own several nice
cars, so I don’t particularly want
to drive someone else’s car unless
absolutely necessary. Whenever I
rebuild someone’s engine, I try
to put between 50 and 100 miles
on the new engine to sort out
any glitches. Larry’s rebuild was a
classic example why I drive the cars.
It wasn’t an issue before, but after
the rebuild, the bank one (cylinders
1-3) pre-convertor oxygen
sensor decided to die. I replaced
the O 2
sensor and continued my
testing. I drove the car to our
monthly club board meeting in
March. I had it up to 80 mph on
the Bush Tollway and it performed
splendidly. That was a Wednesday.
By Friday, I had accrued around
100 miles with no further issues.
I called Larry and told him his
Boxster was ready to pick up.
Because the car had only been
driven 100 miles since November,
and after road testing had about
¼-tank of old fuel, I suggested that
Larry put some fresh fuel in it. That
he did. He stopped at the nearest
fuel station, which happened to be
a franchise station of “Big Slurp”
Corporation (the names have been
changed to protect the guilty).
The Wednesday that I drove the
car to our board meeting, it had
been raining cats and dogs. Larry
filled up the Boxster that following
Friday and drove it about a mile
to the Bush Tollway on his way
home, when the engine just died!
He called me and explained what
happened. I thought he might
have run out of fuel but he said
that he just filled up the tank.
I hopped in my shop truck, fuel
can and code scanner in hand,
and met Larry and his recalcitrant
Boxster on the shoulder of Bush. I
sat in the car and tried to start it. It
started right up but ran terribly. I
pitched Larry the keys to my truck
and had him follow me while I
drove his Boxster back to the shop.
Let’s see, it runs great before he
puts fuel in it, and one mile after
filling the fuel tank, the engine
dies. Hmm, I smell a fuel problem.
The following Saturday morning I
hooked up the test wires to the fuel
pump relay and raised the car on
a lift, trying to get a fuel sample.
I connected my sample jar to the
fuel return line under the car and
energized the fuel pump. Nothing
emerged from the return line.
I connected a fuel pressure gauge
to the feed line but only saw 45
psi on the gauge. The regulated
pressure should be about 55 psi;
the fuel pump had failed. I replaced
the fuel pump and again
tried to get a fuel sample.
This time, I got what looked
like a quart of dirty creek water
and some fuel in my sample jar.
Larry had indeed filled his fuel
tank with contaminated fuel. I
continued to drain fuel from the
tank until it no longer contained
water. I again started the engine.
It ran better but had a misfire
on cylinder number three.
The number three injector is
directly under the inlet fuel line.
Any contaminant will affect that
injector first. Typically, whenever
water enters the fuel tank, which
could be a result of moisture condensing
from the air, either in the
car’s tank or that of the gas station,
it is usually only a small amount.
Water doesn’t burn so it will cause
a brief misfire. Unfortunately, a
misfire long enough to set a fault
code in the engine computer and
turn on the Check Engine light.
I prefer not to think about how
many times I chased my tail trying
to diagnose a water-caused misfire
only to find nothing wrong with any
component; the minute amount
of water had long since exited the
tail pipe. Not so with Larry’s S. I
had a sample of absolutely nasty
fuel. With no more water in the
fuel tank, the engine should have
run normally. Larry’s did not.
I pulled the spark plugs out
and performed a compression
test on bank one. Cylinder #3

had only 50 psi of compression
compared to 150 psi in # 1 and
#2. I understand how a bunch
of water could have caused the
fuel pump to fail, but why would
it affect the compression?
This is the type of question
that is posed on the Master Tech
test. I postulated that water had
caused the injector to seize in the
open position and allowed fuel to
collect behind the closed intake
valve. When the valve opened,
the amount of fuel exceeded the
volume of the combustion chamber
resulting in a “hydraulic lock.” A resulting
bent connecting rod would
not allow sufficient compression.
A call to Larry ensued with all of
the gory details. Calls were made
to Big Slurp Corp. and a couple
of attorneys. Big Slurp denied any
responsibility and threatened to
impound the car until any litigation
had concluded (read two years in
civil court!), and the aforementioned
counselors thought $20,000
sounded like a reasonable fee to
pursue the case. No, that’s not the
route Larry and I decided to take.
I pulled the engine out and
removed the 1-3 cylinder head. I
rotated the engine and checked the
“deck height” of all of the pistons
in case there were other casualties.
No, all of the pistons came all of
the way to the top of the cylinders.
What I did find was a broken
intake valve spring on cyl. #3. It
maintained sufficient pressure to
keep the valve from coming loose
from the spring keepers, but the
oil pressure behind the hydraulic
lifter caused the valve to lift off of
the seat, allowing compression loss.
In 45 years of working on Porsche
automobiles, I have only encountered
three broken valve springs.
The water-caused fuel pump failure
and the broken valve spring are
TOTALLY unrelated. Larry had his
heart set on attending the DE at
Circuit of the Americas last spring.
The fuel/valve spring misadventure
precluded that from happening.
In conclusion, I only buy fuel
from the major suppliers, and keep
records of my fuel purchases. The
broken valve spring issue, be it fate,
karma, or the intervention of a
higher power, falls into the “sometimes
things happen that we cannot
Record Broken at the Nürburgring: 918 Spyder
By Thomas Becki, Communication Porsche AG
As the first vehicle to boast global road homologation,
the Porsche 918 Spyder* has conquered
the 20.6-kilometer (12.8-mile) lap around the
Nürburgring Nordschleife in less than seven minutes.
Achieving a time of exactly six minutes and 57
seconds, the super sportscar equipped with a hybrid
drive shaved 14 seconds off the previous record.
Wolfgang Hatz, member of the Porsche AG
Board of Management in charge of Research
and Development, had the following to say:
“We promised a great deal with the 918 Spyder,
namely to redefine driving pleasure, efficiency
and performance. We have kept our word.”
As is always the case with Porsche, the 918 Spyder is
also leading the way for future generations as the latest
in the line of super sportscars. It recently made its
global debut at the International Motor Show (IAA).
With its unique spread, the model blends maximum
driving dynamics with minimal fuel consumption.
By taking the Nürburgring record, the sportscar is
demonstrating the enormous potential that lies in
Porsche’s pioneering plug-in hybrid concept, and is
Photos courtesy Porsche
underpinning the leading role the company enjoys
when it comes to developing sporty hybrid vehicles.
“The radical hybridisation of the 918 Spyder from
the very outset is what made this lap record possible”
says Dr. Frank Walliser, head of the 918 Spyder
project. “The lap time on the Nordschleife is and
remains the toughest measure of a super sportscar.
Posting a time of 6 minutes 57 seconds, we achieved
a result of which everyone in the development
team and at Porsche as a whole is rightly proud.”
Marcus Schurig, editor-in-chief of sportscar magazine
Sport Auto, was on hand as an objective observer of
the record-breaking runs. The two sportscars, which
deliver an output of 887 bhp (652 kW), were equipped
with the optional “Weissach Package” to increase the
driving dynamics, and lead out on the standard Michelin
tires developed specifically for the 918 Spyder.
* 918 Spyder: combined fuel consumption: 3.3~3.0
liters/100 km (71~78 mpg US); combined energy
consumption: 13.0~12.5 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions:
The record, which was previously held for four
years, was even broken during the first attempt in
the test drive on the morning of September 4. All
three drivers -- former European Rally Champion
Walter Röhrl, Porsche test driver Timo Kluck, and
Porsche factory driver Marc Lieb -- were quicker
than the existing record with each lap driving the
two 918 Spyder models used, and posted lap times
of less than seven minutes on numerous occasions.
Ultimately, it was Marc Lieb who posted the absolute
best time of 6:57, driving at an average speed of 179.5
km/h (111.5 mph), as measured by Wige Solutions.

©2013 Porsche Cars North America, Inc. Porsche recommends seat belt usage and observance of all traffic laws at all times. Porsche recommends four winter tires when driving in cold, snowy, or slippery conditions.
Simultaneously breaks new ground,
while clinging to the current one.
Take the performance that Porsche is known for. Then add to that the strength of a 400 horsepower engine, the design and
greater stability of a wider body, the extraordinary traction and agility of all-wheel drive, and an unmistakable illuminated rear light
strip. The sum of which is a sports car that holds your attention as tightly as it holds to the road. Porsche. There is no substitute.
Experience the control of all-wheel drive.
