I had a similar leak a few weeks ago, my leak was coming from the top of the engine and it was dripping from the rear sway bar area. This car has a couple of coolant hoses on top of the engine that bring water from one side of the engine to the other. The dealer had to drop the engine to fix this, they had to replace 2 O-rings ($10).
it reads normal, around 14v I believe, but I dont trust the gauge... I just droped the car at the dealer yesterday, they will look at the battery and at a check engine light that came on last weekend (secondary air pump) I will let you know the results... thanks for your help
Very good point! I installed the new battery myself and I made sure the vent was conected, I am not expecting them to pay for the new battery I got 3 weeks ago, I was asking if they would replace the alternator... I have a Fluke meter, should I let the engine idle and read the voltage at the battery terminals? what voltage should I read? Thanks..
Hey guys I purchased an 02 996TT last January from a P-dealer, the car is CPOd. The battery on the car was very old (2004) and it had a blue/green foam that accumulated on one of the terminals. I replaced the battery with a new on 3 weeks ago and cleaned the terminal. Yesterday I opened the battery cover and found the bluish/greenish stuff all over the same terminal again. my questions are: 1) are those symptoms of a faulty alternator/electrical system (overcharging the battery)?? 2) will my CPO cover this? thanks a lot for your help Greg

IS this new cap only for MK1 996s?? I have an 02 996 with a "new" engine replaced on 2004..
it should actually be cheaper than an EVO, I am 27 single no tickets or accidents and pay for full coverage 142 a month.. my brother (25 single) pays for an S2000 240 a month.. sometimes the cheaper performance cars are more expensive than high end cars..
Another good thing you could do is DRIVE the car more often!
could anyone please give some feedback on the handling improvements.. I own an 02 C2 and I am just about to buy the ROW MO30 suspension kit.. I would like to know how does the car feel after\before.. my car came with the US base suspension.. Thanks
