    99 996 c2
  1. Uh oh.... I did lose coolant, after I pulled over, a pool of it well up beneath the car. Scared the $#^%! out of me as I thought it was oil. Funny thing is, the low oil light flashed instead of the coolant light- really thought I had a blown engine. I'm waiting to hear from the techs. Any guesstimates of what specific parts might have been damaged?

  3. Well my water pump finally died yesterday on my 99 C2 :( (been delaying the inevitable) while driving on the freeway. I couldn't pull over on the shoulder immediately and the temperature rose to 250 degrees and flashed for just a minute or two. Just wondering, should I be concerned about permanent engine damage due to the heat?
  4. Thanks guys, I guess I won't try to second guess a Porsche engineer with armchair speculation. Here's hoping I get at least another 100K out of it (which according to Excellence should be easy)
  5. Hi all, I've got a '99 c2 with 114K miles on it. It runs great (knock on wood) with the 0w-40 MB1 that I've been using since bought it with 54K miles. Just wondering what you all think about going to a higher viscosity, is this a good idea?
  6. I've got a high mileage (85K) '99 996 C2 that has recently developed a pretty noticeable engine tick that actually seems to get a little louder when the engine gets warm, and it doesn't go away. The ticking is constant at idle, but speeds up with acceleration. The car runs fine and pulls great. My trusted independent mechanic says no worries, it's just lifter noise which isn't a problem. Someone at another board suggested it was the EGR valve and not a problem. Just want to get your opinions, am I in for a new engine soon? thnx in advance.
