JRW-910 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)So, I recently purchased my first Porsche ... a 1999 911 Carrera 4 coupe. I had previously driven my uncles '03 turbo and decided I wanted one. My plan is to use it as a daily driver as much as possible here in the northeast so it will replace my '91 BMW 850i which I've had for the last 6 years and 45k miles. The 996 is a 6-speed with 94k miles in silver with blue interior. It drives extremely well and was a bargain in my book at $15k. It will join the other cars in my garage which include: '91 Dinan 8 (twin turbo v12), '88 Corvette coupe (406cid v8), '90 B2K Callaway Aerobody (twin turbo v8), and the '90 Corvette vert (supercharged 396cid v8 / NOS / cage / etc). I have a lift and workshop so I try to do all of the work on the cars myself and the Porsche will be no exception. So... I have my first issue which needs attention and I was looking for a little guidance from the experienced owners here. I took it out yesterday and drove it fairly hard... nothing stupid, but harder then I would drive it normally. Anyway, I smelled some oil burning which of course scared me a bit. It turns out that there was an oil leak that was dripping on the drivers side header. Up on the lift, I was able to see where the oil was coming from. After some research (https://sites.google.com/site/mikefo...torreplacement) it appears that the oil is coming from the AOS bellows. I was thinking about just replacing the bellows and using newer style screw type clamps. Why not replace the entire AOS? Well, the previous owner had it done a few years ago. Secondly, the link states that its probably functioning correctly if I could pull the oil cap off easily with the engine running... which I was able to do. So, does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks, -JRW
