  1. Hey, I’m looking for expert advice. I have a 2000 996 3.4L with 106K miles, IMSB, AOS, clutch replaced at 105K (IMSB was good). Check engine light came on, flashing then steady, I had to drive 1/2 mile out of traffic before shutting it down. Engine now torn down completely. Mechanic diagnosed head gasket failure due to overheating cylinders 1-3. Cylinders and pistons “look” really good, I.e., no scoring at all, no obvious cracks. Heads actually look good, but at a minimum I would have them done along with pinning the IMS, ARP rod bolts, oil-fed LN IMSB Solution. Mechanic wants the go full-bore
  2. Bought my ‘00 in June at 105K. P.O. had done a lot of preventative maintenance including KN oil filter and using DT40 every 10K. Did a KN IMSB, AOL RMS, and second clutch while in there. IMS looked perfect! What a fun car, though admittedly I miss the “thunk” sound when closing the doors and the smell of leather/gasoline/oil of the older cars (944 included).
