  1. Loren: I really appreciate the information but you got me curious with the greenish color. What I have looks like straight old oil. Delman
  2. Darn it! So it sounds like I might have caused this problem. Next time of jack up rear of car, what should I do. LIft from body supports? Delman
  3. Group: Here's a wierd situation. I was jacking up my 01 996 at the proper jack point ( not oil pan) underneath motor and while doing this oil starting streaming from the right side of the rear, above the rear tail pipe area. It streamed for about 3-5 seconds and then stopped. Almost like it had pooled somewhere above and the jack angle caused the pooled oil to suddenly drain to the ground. I cleaned it up and watched it for 24 hrs. with no apparent additional leakage. Even startedmotor and ran for a while, again with a flashlight and saw nothing wrong. Has anybody encountered this before? I have never had oil problems or any problems with motor. Car has 80K miles. Also on that day I was performing this in the garage, the outside temps in Denver was around zero. Could this have stiffened something up in the cold weather that might have caused the leak? Thanks, Delman
  4. If you are still looking for a switched 12V source in the trunk, just tap off one of the black,yellow wires that connects to the windshield spray nozzles. These are for heating the nozzles and work well.

  5. Don't do it. I tried one of these kits. The fit isn't bad but the bonding process will eventually peel away leaving your interior looking cheap! Also, once you have used alcohol to clean and prep, it is non-removable. You will end up distroying the material underneath and turn your interior into something unbefitting of a Porsche.
