    2003 996 TT
  1. Thanks for the update. I replaced the oil about 1,000 miles ago and there is no change in the level according to the computer gauge so I don't believe that there is any significant loss occurring. However, I do notice a drop or two on the garage floor every few days. Will probably ask the dealership mechanic to give an opinion the next time I'm there.
  2. Hi, I'm having a similar leak on the right side of the crankcase of my '03 TT. Just wondering if you've had any further issues with this? Thanks
  3. An update ... I cleaned the area where the oil was evident and left the car overnight. The next day I could see a small trail of new oil but not enough to drip onto the cardboard placed under the engine. I dabbed the wet area with a clean tissue and noticed that the color of the fluid was clear yellow. Since the last motor oil change was performed about 7 months ago I would have expected any oil leak to be a fair bit darker in color.

  4. Hi, I noticed today that there was a small puddle of oil under under my '03 996TT, 42K miles (which I've had for one month now) near the back center of the engine. The car hasn't been used for the last 9 days while I was away and prior to this didn't see anything unusual. Based on the location and the pictures could anyone suggest any places I should look at in particular. From my reading RMS leaks for the 996TT are quite rare. In addition, the oil pressure gauge has been acting up over the past month and I'm not sure if the two may be related. At first the oil pressure gauge was jum
  5. Hi, I'm having a strange brake problem and was wondering if anyone could shed some light. When I first start the car in the morning and reverse out of the garage the brakes are almost nonexistent and I have to push down quite forcefully to keep from moving. After I get going though, the brakes seem to get better and the force required to stop the car becomes less. I have bled the system and checked the vacuum hoses for and leaks. I'm thinking that maybe the brake booster may be the culprit. Has anyone had any similar issues? Thanks, Jay
