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. Is this a feature of the Cayenne's turbo design??

I replaced all of the seals on the hoses at the O/S earlier in the year, and the bottom hose was dry. This N/S hose is shaped differently, but should it collect 1/4 litre of oil like this?

Thanks

Chris

Normal to see a cupful of oil collect in that pipe.

My service advisor says it is due to the breather circuit of the engine etc.

I get both left and right pipes drained every year at the annual service and oil is always evident in the left hand pipe, very little if any in the right.

Nothing to worry about turbo seal wise, as long as oil isn't evident in your exhaust tailpipe.

      I had an oil change on the P!G (M1 synthetic) before a trip and that's when the trouble started...
       
      The driver side wheel well makes a gentle creaking sound at idle RPM, which seems to disappear at higher RPM.  It sounded like a small frog quietly chirping in the wheel well and I was worried it was a turbo.  When we popped the hood, there was sound of a vacuum near the intake. The PCV to crankase hose (part #5) collapses while the engine is running and the oil fill port sucks strong vacuum if the fill cap is removed.
       
      My local independent mechanic (I'm some distance from a Porsche specialist) found that hose 14 and 15 are both cracked and identified their failure as causing the sound.  Cause of failure is presumed age/heat. Since replacing those two components are $370-400 in hoses, is there something else we should be looking into as a cause of these pipe failures?  Searching the forums I came upon a discussion that makes me think maybe we should be looking at the PCV valve, air oil separator membrane, and the diverter valves?  I'm wrench-familiar with NA cars and new to turbos so I'd appreciate your input.  Is the restricted airflow or vacuum interruption causing turbo noise?  Has anyone else seen this and what else should I be checking?
       
      We do see the boost gauge work normally or at least what it has historically (under acceleration it hits 0.8 bar/pegged and then holds near 0.6-0.7) before these issues started.  The rest of the car seems to work well, aside from the a sticky secondary air injection check valve on the passenger side.

      2002 C2 manual:
       
      Problem: when parked outside in freezing temperatures, oil leaks from the lower oil pump connector, item 7 in diagram below. When parked in a warm environment, it remains dry.
       
      Anyone had that problem? Should I replace the gasket #8?

      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 hack to check my actual temperatures today while doing a short troubleshooting drive. And I noticed my oil temperature said 0, which is physically impossible 🙄


      Is it possible the oil temp guage is throwing off the coolant sensor?    Is it even possible for the oil temp sensor too go bad but not the oil level sensor? (They are a 2 in 1 sensor)   

      THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

      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 small, but a palm size of oil from transmission on the ground,  thanks guys cheers😁

      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.
       
      Can anyone help me diagnose this issue?  Would be a sensor or something mechanical?
