  1. Hey guys. I got the car back from the shop, they replaced the seal, but it still needs a motor... due to get one soon, just driving it until it breaks.. and it keeps the wife from complaining about buying a car that lives in the shop. <_< Anyways. Car has a new clutch, new flywheel, etc etc. When the engine is off, (or on) anytime I shift gears, it has a rattling/loose noise. the shifter is not shaking loose when I touch it or anything, but, just when I push the clutch in or change gears.. once again, I can have the car off, and when I push in the clutch to change gears, it soun
  2. Okay, finally got the car back from the shop. The car isnt leaking oil anymore, and the check engine light is off. It does feel as if the engine is running rough now, and it certainly is shaking the car. Guess it does need a new motor, but I'll wait until after Christmas to put it in the shop again. it's been there 2 and a half weeks!! New problem-- Once the engine gets warm, the oil pressure drops right below 1 bar, at idle. The oil pressure warning light comes on, but as soon as I rev it up a little, it's gone. Drops down below 1k rpms, and it comes back on. Now please note that
  3. Ok You say you have all the service records. Has the rear main seal been replaced before? If so, how many times? Is the current seal the latest version? Concerning the CEL, have the coil packs ever been replaced? Has the MAF ever been replaced? Do you have all of the codes from the PST2? I suggest you get a lot more info before making a decision. If this is the original seal at 68k miles and is just now beginning to leak, then I doubt the crank is way out of whack. The go/nogo tool is not a failsafe determing factor for a bad engine. You could replace the seal with the latest versio
  4. Any recommendations? replace the seal, and drive the car as is until it locks up? I don't have the extra $10k laying around. I wish Porsche would still pay half. but with me being the second owner, and it out of warranty, I don't see this happening.
  5. Okay. Just spoke to the dealership. Service writer said they put in a "GO or no Go" tool where the seal goes. If it goes in with no resistance, everything is fine. If it does not go, it means the crankshaft is out of line. WELL GUESS WHAT!! SHOCKER! they said the tool doesnt go in, and the car will need a new motor soon. they said it will also need a flywheel. they informed me that the check engine light is because the crank is misaligned, and the flywheel is slipping. I asked them to replace the seal, put the car back together, and let me drive it until it breaks. :angry:
  6. Just spoke to the dealership. they STILL HAVE NOT pulled the friggin' tranny!! So the car is STILL sitting still. he assured me they will get it tomorrow. if not, Im going Thursday to pick it up and find another dealer. Im stressed out because I don't know if the car needs a motor, or what it needs. Im still as much in the dark as I was a week ago!! GRRRR!!
  7. I'll have to check and see. Why would the Low oil pressure light come on? it only comes on after it warms up, and then only at idle. if I give it the slightest bit of gas, oil pressure goes back up. When it drops, it goes slightly below the 1 mark.
  8. Phillip-- I paid $37,000 for the car, as is.. here's how. I work for a dealership. we took this car in as a trade in. I had our service department review the car and everything seemed to be fine, but It had a minor leak, which I assumed was the RMS, everything else was fine. The car is spotless.. garage kept. PO claims he was never rough on it, and it has all service records from day one. I drove it a few days before contracting up on it.. bought it and the warrant on November 30th.... but it wasnt until this past weekend when it threw the CEL and started running rough.. also when idlin
  9. Viper- thanks for the info... Just got an update call from the dealer. The car has been there all week, and they STILL have not removed the tranny. They have been waiting on the warranty company to inspect it. Warranty company came by, verified the leak, and closed the ticket, saying that I have to give authorization to remove the transmission, not them. Okay, so they have my permission, whatever. When I got the check engine light scanned, it said random misfire, so I assumed plugs. I asked the tech about this and he said if the Intermediate shaft is broken, it can cause this light. So
  10. UPDATE: Okay. Just spoke to the dealership. Service writer said they put in a "GO or no Go" tool where the seal goes. If it goes in with no resistance, everything is fine. If it does not go, it means the crankshaft is out of line. WELL GUESS WHAT!!
