What are these pieces in the oil sump pan?


Recommended Posts

Just installed the IMS Guardian Jr in my 99 911 C2 coupe 6-speed (138kkm) and found some loose bits in the oil sump pan. They are not metallic, ie. not bearing bits, so I was wondering if anybody knows what they are? It is the first time I remove the oil sump. I also found one piece in the oil filter. This is the first time I find a piece in the filter and I check the filter every time I change it every 3k to 5kkm. 

 

I am thinking that the black bits that are also in the pan are probably from gasket sealant as they are soft. I am worried about the square white bits (about 2mm in size) though. I'm thinking the water pump is overdue to be changed. When the engine is hot in the summer the temperature gauge needle sits just right of top center.

 

It has had the IMS upgraded and the RMS seal replaced at 110k along with a new clutch and flywheel at that time.

P.S.: The IMS Guardian Jr went in pretty easily as the instructions were good. I would just add that the spot I found to run the cable from inside to outside the cabin is between the shift cables under the center console. Every model year is different so no instructions are given to do this part.

Hard to tell from your picture, but it is not unusual to find bits of hardened sealant and from the chain wear pads in the sump.
