  1. Dealer solved overfill problem today. Records verify problem for future reference, if necessary. Thanks again.
  2. Everyone, thanks for the input. I checked with PCA Tech and there was a situation exactly like mine, complete with the 10 quart overfill by a dealer. My car goes back to the dealer tomorrow AM to have oil drained and level corrected. If they do not offer, I'll also insist that this situation is officially documented for future possible warranty problems associated with their mistake. From everything that I've read, I doubt that there will be any long term problems.
  3. Help and info please. Took 2005 Carrera 997 to a just opened, NEW, Porsche dealership for a Minor Maintenance that included an oil and filter change. Everything seemed OK with the service and I drove vehicle home 15 miles and parked it. Next day prior to starting the car I checked the oil level indicator and it appeared over filled. Me garage is very level and the indicator measurement has never been over the maximum mark. I checked the invoice from the dealer and it shows 10 quarts of oil added. Normally the amount added on the invoice from other dealers is 9 quarts; the Porsche specifications state 8.7. I called the dealer and they said bring the car back and they will fix the problem. In the Porsche Owners Manual it states in bold print NEVER ADD MORE OIL THAN REQUIRED TO REACH THE MAX MARK. My question is can I drive the car back to the dealership without damaging the engine or has the damage already been done. Thanks in advance for any input.
  4. Paul, Loren, Berty; Thanks for your input. I called Oklahoma yesterday; however, they had a major phone line cut and will get back to me. The 996 spare from a used vehicle source seems to be the best option from a space, convenience (tire is already inflated) , time to replace and cost factor. My friendly dealer, after much negotiation, brought the complete collapsible tire package (tire, jack, tools, case, cover and mounting hardware to just over $850. If there are any more suggestions out there or good/bad experiences in using this spare please let me know. If Oklahoma or another major supply source has the 996 spare, I will probably buy it within the next two weeks. Thanks again NEW-CAR Ed
  5. The space saver would work for me. Do you know what type and year vehicle it came from? Do the original wheel bolts work? I'm assuming that you store it and the jack in the front luggage area. Did you try to obtain a Porsche jack vs the hydraulic one that is next to your car. When you spoke to the salvage area in Oklahoma did they know what you were looking for without going into a lengthly discourse. Thanks for your help. NEW-Car
  6. Paulspeed Interesting, What kind of tire did the yard have? Was it the emergency replacement collapsible tire or a doughnut? This had to be much more reasonable than going through your local Porsche dealer. Thanks New-Car
  7. Either no one has cut a sidewall, has ever been out of cell range, always has a Porsche dealer within walking distance or just does not drive much. Has anyone had any experience with using or mounting the emergency tire, jack, mounting bracket and assorted tools that come with this kit. Thanks New-Car
  8. Help Just purchased a 2005, Seal Gray, 997 C2 coupe, 19" S wheels, but don't feel OK without a spare. The can of goo just doesn't make me warm and fuzzy. I talked to three dealers but none have mounted the kit. Are there any problems with the installation or with the kit in general? Thanks NEW-CAR
