Dozer1 replied to Dozer1's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I forgot to mention this is a C2 with 6 speed manual trans bought w/ 34000 miles used Could be. The easiest way to see if its the oil seperator is to temporarily disconnect the bypass tube coming from the seperator at the throttlebody. Seal the opening in the throttle body where the hose was connected to prevent vacuum leak. Now, there is no way oil can get from the seperator into the intake system and out the exhaust. Any excess oil from the seperator (which should be no more than fumes) will now come out the hose that was connected to the throttlebody. Your car should run normal. Start your car, let it run for a few minutes and shut down. If you still have smoke when you start the car after it has sat for several hours, your problem is not the seperator. The dealer replaced the seperator, and it solved the problem. PCNA called me and apologized for my nightmare experience with the dealership, but no new motor.
Dozer1 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have a 2001 996 with 40,000 miles. It is under the C.P.O. warranty. In the last 15 months I have had 6 RMS repairs. When I last checked it was not leaking. Now I have a pretty large puff of blue (oil) smoke upon start up. The dealer says they will replace the oil/ air seperator, and this should solve the smoking problem. Is this true, or are they blowing smoke up my tailpipe? I called PCNA and asked for a new motor, and I guess thi is their response. I forgot to mention this is a C2 with 6 speed manual trans bought w/ 34000 miles used
I have a 2001 996 C2 6 speed 40K miles. I have had the car 15 months and have had 6 RMS replacements. Now I am getting a large puff of blue smoke on start up. I requested a new engine, but the dealer says it is the oil/ air seperatorthat is causing RMS problems and smoke problems. Is this true, or are they blowing smoke?
Dozer1 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I own a 2001 996 C2. Is there an acceptable after market power steering fluid? My fluid is slightly low, and it is 200 miles to the nearest dealership. Also I just changed my motor oil and used Castrol Syntec 10W40. This is the weight called for in the owners manual. Current temps. between 10 and 50 degrees F. Thanks for the input .
