MK2 GT3 Dripping oil


Recommended Posts

Greetings GT3 lovers.

I'm wondering if a leaking main seal is a normal occurance on this car?

2004 GT3.....3200km on the clock, never tracked or abused....you can even say it's never driven,

mind you,it is just dripping maybe 5-8 drops in the summer when it's warm.

dealer will warranty the repairs, but i would like to know, is it leaky because of lack of driving or the problem

of design in the boxer motor.

My 965 turbo dripped oil also , but my 964C2 3.8 is dry.

all my P-cars are hardly driven----the 3.8 is a track only car :)

When i bought this car i was hoping i'd never see another wet spot in my garage.

any comments?

Thanks guys & gals

Hi OPK.... Well, GT3 RMS leaks are almost as contentious an issue as on the regular 996/7s and Boxsters. Most experience is anecdotal. Some can/do leak and some don't. My own anecdotal experience is that my '04 GT3 with 17K miles leaked once just a few drops after sitting for several weeks...and has not leaked a drop before or since...with street and track miles on it. My buddy's GT3 which is 4 serial number newer than mine, leaked and had the RMS replaced 3 times. Sometimes it leaked profusely after being driven hard on the track. So, I can't say that leaks "are normal" but, they can happen.
