It is a daily driver as it is driven all year round including winter. The engine is running well except for the AOS leak resulting me in exploring other areas to maintain when the engine is down. The parts from the dealership for RMS isn't too bad .. around $138. Labour is about 2-3 days. The water pump was replaced recently ... about a year ago. I can indeed ask my mechanic to perform a leak down test.

My mechanic also traced a slight oil leak from the RMS which he recommended having to fix when he has to drop the engine to replace the AOS. Apparently, he stated that C2 with Tiptronic requires having the transmission be disassembled from the engine and dropped in order to access the RMS and AOS. I have over 230K on the car and another concern hanging on my shoulder is the IMS as it has never been replaced. He suggested replacing it which I agreed. I’ve purchased the LN E
limron posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Hello, I've just replaced the front and rear control arms on my 99 C2. The car now needs a 4 wheel alignment. I'm surrounded by many local garages that does alignments. Should I trust these garages to have the knowledge and the correct specification for Porsches ... or it's best to take it back to the dealer ?
