Oil Drain Plug Locations On The 2010 911 Turbo?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to change the oil on my 2010 911TT and I was told by the dealer that there are 2 oil drain plugs. Using the pictures below, I located what looks like 3 drain plugs. Not all for the oil. #1 appear to be the oil pan drain plug. Does anyone know where the second drain plug is located. The service mechanic at Porsche is very tight lipped and was not clear on the locations. There lack of expertise with the 2010 911 scares me.

Please forgive me for my lack of experience with the Porsche. I'm only familiar with the Corvettes.

Thank you again for your help guys!

Item 1 is definitely the oil drain for the pan.

Item 2 is part of the cooling system 'water tube'. Not an oil drain.

Item 3 looks like the thermostat housing. Again, not an oil drain.

I think the dealer may be wrong - there appears that there is no longer an oil tank on the new engine (like all the older turbos).

How much oil did you drain out? - it only holds 7.9 quarts with the filter.

Hi, Thank you for the info. I haven't started yet. I was afraid to do anything until I got some input from you. I agree, it appears that there are no other possible locations for the oil drain. I think I'm going to call a few more dealers to see if there is definitely only one oil drain plug and I'm not missing something. Let me know if you speak to anyone in your area that knows. The Porsche dealers around here (NY, Long Island) are terrible.

Thanks again for your help!

Hi Loren,

I finally got an answer. You were correct, there is only one drain plug. It is pretty much identical to the base 911. I went to 3 different dealers before one finally had a 2010 on the lift. The first dealer I visited had a service mechanic tell me that the picture I had was not a 911 Turbo. Even after I told him it was my 911.

Thanks again for your help!

The 2010 turbo uses the new DFI engine, it is an "integrated dry sump" design. It no longer has the dry sump tank that the previous turbos had. It is essentially the same engine used in the 2009-up model DFI carreras, with exception to cams, compression ratio, intake, turbos, etc...
