How much of a problem will the RMS be?


Recommended Posts

I am looking to buy a 2004 C4S. It currently needs a RMS, and I have read that there are continual problems with the RMS and mulitble replacements necessary. I think I understand what the costs of ownership are but I am not sure if it is really worth spending a little less for a 996 C4S with constant RMS problems, or if I need to pony up the money for a 997 C4 (997 C4S out of the budget)? Advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Rich

The latest version of the replacement RMS seems to have cured the problem in those engine cases where the problem is curable. There are some instances where the RMS cannot fix the original faulty machining problem with a particular engine case.

Do a search here and you will get all of the specifics you need.

RMS.......

My 3rd replacement seems to be working now. Make sure you fix it with a competent Porsche dealership and make sure the 2 yrs warranty is in place. Some Porsche dealership may take advantage with the 2 yrs warranty and get you to revisit them in a later day to scam warranty work and claim it to Porsche by not fixing it correctly intentionally.

Mine's had the leak for a few years. The only noticable effect is a slight burning oil smell if I drive it hard. My mechanic thinks it's not a big deal and I shouldn't bother replacing it until I get the clutch changed.

Honestly, if it's a modest RMS leak like mine I wouldn't worry about it overly much. Make sure you get a proper pre-purchase inspection from a qualified Porsche mechanic and ask him how big a deal the leak will be.
