Excessive Fuel Consumption and Poor Overall Performance

Excessive Fuel Consumption and Poor Overall Performance

Recently we had a 996 Coupe in the shop, the customer’s concern was that the fuel consumption appeared excessive and the engine seemed to be less responsive than normal. We ran a complete controller interrogation, meaning we scanned all the control modules (computers) in the car for faults with the PIWIS (Porsche Integrated Workshop Information System) scan tool. Primarily we were searching for faults or fault codes in the DME (Digital Motor Electronics) controller AKA the ECU (Electronic Control Unit), there were no faults present. At this point most technicians would conclude that since there are no faults present, there must not be a problem, however, this is not always the case.

Callas Rennsport Change!

For the first time in 20 years, in an effort to handle our clients more expediently and just improve our overall quality, we added/moved one of our most valued technicians, Casey Gervig, into a “Service Adviser” position. We have purchased all new computers (network) and actually are converting from a DOS to Windows based operating system (most of you will laugh). We are also updating our automotive service system to the new Scott Systems Maxx Traxx software. Needless to say, we are now looking to hire a new automotive technician to fill this void. Callas Rennsport is immediately growing and accepting resume’s for this new position. With Tom Prine and Kelly Callas in our main office, Tony Callas and Casey Gervig in our shop office, 4 master technicians, 1 apprentice technician and 1 helper out in the shop. 10 individuals that still offer personal, detail-oriented service in this fast-paced world. Thank you for your support, and we lo ... read more
