I just jack up the car and let the oil drain. I could see that clearly some water came up first....the oil is very muddy...exactly like hot chocolate over fresh oil....will let it drain then add some water to coolant reservoir and see if the water will come out.... any expert advice on what to do?? And how much it'd cost at the dealership to fix this problem?
on my 2000 boxster S, my coolant level is a few inches below the MIN mark. Adding 2-3 quarts of water doesn't seemed to help as it was back down to the level after some driving. I couldn't discover any coolant leaks in the trunk and elsewhere. I have the new cap already. But I did discover my oil lever is now one bar over the top(it's normally at mid-level). did anyone encounter this problem? Adding water to coolant reservior tank but the water seemed to somehow mixing up with engine oil? thx, victor
Hey pvaughan, how much did the dealer quote you for the tank replacement job? I think i have the same problem with my 2000 boxster S.... BTW, when the light flashes, I checked and the coolant level wasn't lower than the MIN mark that much. But then I had to add about 2-3 quarts of water to the tank. Next day, the coolant level is back down to where it was the day before. I don't know if I should keep pouring it in. The funny thing is now my oil level went up one bar over the top(used to be mid level) and it's way over the max level with the dipstick. I pulled the carpet halfway and kinda peak and feel the surface of the styrofoam, looks like it's not wet, and it's not dripping to the ground... I don't know if the coolant is somehow found its way to mixing with oil....If that's the case, does anyone know what could have caused this and an estimate of how much this is gonna cost at the dealership? victor :(
