Gullwing replied to Gullwing's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks for the replies. I will drain some of the coolant to check if it is clear or not. The car has driven almost 108.000 km's and usually drives relatively short trips but generally enough for the engine temperature gauge to reach the normal temperature. I will also check when the coolant was last replaced and if it is overdue will have that done, thanks again.
Hi all, First of all I apologize if I do anything wrong since I only just created this account in order to ask this community a question. We own a Porsche 996 Targa 2002 and as we all know the 996 is prone to engine problems such as IMS and oil and coolant mixture. Today when I was checking if the engine still had enough oil and coolant and decided they needed a fillup I saw something that I did not really like. I've uploaded two pictures one of how the coolant looks and another picture of where you add the oil. Is the yellowish stuff you see ok or is this the first sign of the oil and coolant mixture? The car seems to run fine and never had any problems with engine temperature, hope you guys can help me out on this one! With kind regards, A somewhat nervous 996 owner.
