  1. Hello I have a 1999 c2 manual with 72000 miles. Yesterday I find oil dripping from, as i looks, front end of the gearbox. The undertray is quite wet from oil, seems i must be oil under pressure, see pictures. On my inspection I did not find any loose bolts or anything wrong, or oil dripping form the gearbox itself. But as you see from the pictures, a lot of oil has been leaking. As far as I concern there is no place in front end of the gearbox oil could leak from.No loose bolts or anything. So what happens here? einsv996
  2. Hi all, just purchased a 1961 notchback 1600s, I have never drove a Porsche until the day I purchased this car, got the bug now and i love Porsches more than ever now, the car is in very good shape, but i want to change all the fluids, grease all the parts, and do all the maintenance there is, the oil was so dark when I checked the level and it was all the way to max line of the stick, i would appreciate if you guys can tell me where to buy all the maintenance parts, and where can I buy the shop manual, and what are the things I should do, there is a small leak on the floor from engine very sm
  3. Recently I had been noticing issues with my cooling system the coolant temp guage would go past the 0 on 180 and I wouldn’t hear fans or anything. (Already tested fans and resistors and relays). The temperature Will continue to creep up if I sit still, with no signs of fans, AC OFF. I replaced the coolant temp sensor. Problem fixed!! Then same issue again it seems after a week of driving. Now i currently have ordered another temp sensor just Incase I maybe did something to cause the other new one too fail, I’ll be changing it again today. However I was doing the climate control ha
  4. I have a 2007 C2S manual with about 132K on the odometer. A low oil pressure light has started to show up at idle after the car is warmed up. It seems as if the light is gradually coming on more frequently. The pressure gage on the dash reads around 0.5 bar when the light comes on. When the car is cold the starting pressure is around five bar and is about 3 bar at 3000rpm. As it warms up the pressure drops to about 2 bar at 3000rpm. I always run 0-40W Mobil 1 and change the oil every 5K miles. With the engine off and turning the key one click the pressure gage rises to about 0.1-0.2 bar
  5. Hey everyone, I am new on this forum. Was recommended to create a topic about my problem here. Its a Cayenne S V8 2011 petrol Recently noticed oil leaking from the front area (left side of the car). See the Picture:) Porsche workshop is not fully sure yet about exactly where its leaking from. They think its from the oil pan and to find the exact place or fix it, they will have to take motor out and as well gearbox as I understood. They have recommended me to drive it 1000km and come back again for the check-up. They say its coming somewhere from the oil pan, but coulld
  6. Basic Info 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe C2 Manual 6 speed US So my friend and I started to the process of changing the IMS to the Solution and noticed while we were removing the second from the top left bolt of the transmission (facing the rear of the car) that there was a lot of corrosion. The bolt was very difficult to get out and actually took some of the threads with it. Once we removed the tranny we saw inside the housing of the tranny and the crank crystallized particles. It was also around the bolt that was tough to get out. After a closer look it appea
  7. After recently buying a 955 with the V8 which is whisper quiet with a full history, I decided it was a good idea to change the oil, filter and the plugs as it had only moved 400 miles in six months. The oil was a suggested Mobil 1 0w40 and the plugs are as identified by the reg plate. However, the Bosch super 4's that came out were R6 (resistance) and the BERU 4's were R5. ive not noticed a loss of power - but HAVE noticed a drop in my mpg figures. from 17-19 down to possibly 13-14. anybody else experienced this, the oil level is correct with a quality synthetic filt
  8. For cars that have an oil dipstick, I have been thinking about designing an oil changer pump that will be like nothing else on the planet and will have the following features: 1. Of course you will not have to jack up the car as the oil will be extracted through dipstick hole. 2. Unlike other extractors on the market , this unit will not require a. An air compressor to operate b. Manual pumping to create suction c. The user to dump the oil, it is pumped directly into the recycle container 3. This unit is very small and e
  9. Hi all, First of all I apologize if I do anything wrong since I only just created this account in order to ask this community a question. We own a Porsche 996 Targa 2002 and as we all know the 996 is prone to engine problems such as IMS and oil and coolant mixture. Today when I was checking if the engine still had enough oil and coolant and decided they needed a fillup I saw something that I did not really like. I've uploaded two pictures one of how the coolant looks and another picture of where you add the oil. Is the yellowish stuff you see ok
  10. I am the original owner of a '99 C2, black on black, approaching 60k miles. My Indy recomended oil change and filter, fuel filter, air filter, belt replacement, and it needed a battery. During plug removal, he discovered four or the six coils were cracked! One was pretty bad.; I'm surprised it ran that well. He could only get four Beru's on such short notice. Total damage with labor was less than $1,100, which I consider quite fair. Glad I brought it in, and I'll replace the other two when I get down to FL ( I hadn't been driving it much while it was stored in VA).
  11. While researching another problem with my Boxster, I noticed a company is advertising an oil fed intermediate shaft bearing kit, which seems to use a modified cover and a hose to feed oil to the intermediate shaft bearing.. the kit is here.. http://tunersmotorsports.com/?page_id=103 Has anyone installed it or know if it is any good? My old 986 Boxster had an upgraded IMS bearing installed when I bought the car, and I thought it was a worthwhile thing to do.. But was told the 987 needed an engine teardown to replace the bearing.. This kit seems to just feed engine oil into the bearing, whic
  12. I recently purchased a 2008 Boxster S with 62000mi on it. It is a CPO I bought in NC so it passed the dealership's inspection. I live in Augusta GA and the nearest dealership is about an hour away making service a little bit of a pain. I have driven about 3500 miles and my oil level has gone from the center line to the low line. According to the manual I need to add about 0.4 liters to get it back to the center line. I do smell burning oil after I drive the car. It is not strong but it's there. There are no oil spots under the car in my garage. Is this normal or do I need to cons
  13. I did an oil change on my 2004 996 Carrera using the correct amount of Porsche specified oil about 1,500 miles ago. Now after running and car and letting the oil settle back to the oil pan the dash computer level and dipstick are reading the same. The oil level is half way from the min/max levels. I know that the oil level is in the acceptable range now, but is considered having low oil? The reason why I am asking is because I brought my car to get diagnosed (and fixed) for a faulty oil pressure sending unit problem that occurs rarely when the dash warning pops up saying oil failure a
  14. Spent the afternoon under the front N/S corner of the 04 Cayenne Turbo, looking to replace the seals on the boost hoses and dump valve. When unclipping the bottom turbo hose from the intercooler, I was stunned to find at least 1/4 litre of oil pour out of the hose onto the floor. In all my years, I've never taken a hose off a turbo and seen that much oil. Has anyone else on here taken the hose off the bottom of the intercooler on the N/S (Drivers side US & Europe, Passenger side UK) and experenced it full of oil? I'm worried about the state of the oil seals on the N/S turbo.
  15. So i've been ordering my filters through suncoast porsche for a long time now, but i figured i would take a chance on one of my amazon orders. Here are some comparison shots: The short of it....looks like Mahle is one of the OEM suppliers of this filter. In case anyone was looking to save a few bucks. I change mine every 5-10k so i buy several a year. for 13 bucks and change. http://www.amazon.com/MAHLE-Original-OX-128-1D/dp/B004JBQ3T8/ref=au_as_r?ie=UTF8&Make=Porsche%7C2&Model=Cayenne%7C19&Year=2004%7C2004&carId=001&n=15684181&newCar=1&s=automotive&v

  17. I have recently heard that there is an upgrade tiptronic gearbox oil/fluid available in the market which should give a better response for the Tip box. Does this really work? Have anyone tried before? I am interested to learn as I have realized that the tip at high revs seems not responding as good when compares to mid to low range revs. Thx
  18. Hello all I recently purchased 2 cases of AGIP SINT 2000 10w-40 for an oil change in the lambo. Now having just bought my car i wanted to throw some fresh oil in along with an oil filter to play it safe. What do you all think about using this oil i have i case left over (12 quarts) and i dont just want to have oil sitting around getting old, rather put it to use. Obviously dont want to harm the engine which is why i am asking the question before doing anything. Thanks Alex M http://www.americanagip.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=29&zenid=c0eb93b7ac2cd15121d91e
  19. Hi, I've been lurking for a while with my 2004 CTT. I love the car and haven't really had many issues other than the normal coolant pipes. I do all my own work, and this is my dail driver, so the work is much more simple than my other cars. I have two, hopefully, basic questions: 1. the Diff "Locks"...are those viscous diffs or truely locking? 2. Because Burmah oil is hard to come by in the states, is there a fluid that is recommended other than the porsche part? i know redline has a gl5 rated fluid, but if there are clutchpacks in the lockers....i would hate to decrease the locki
