Hey everyone,

I am new on this forum. Was recommended to create a topic about my problem here.

Its a Cayenne S V8 2011 petrol

Recently noticed oil leaking from the front area (left side of the car). See the Picture:)

Porsche workshop is not fully sure yet about exactly where its leaking from. They think its from the oil pan and to find the exact place or fix it, they will have to take motor out and as well gearbox as I understood. They have recommended me to drive it 1000km and come back again for the check-up.

They say its coming somewhere from the oil pan, but coulld as well be from somewhere above the oilpan.

Thought post it here, and check if someone have had this kind of problem on their 958 or know about it. It leaks only when the car is running.

 

Thanks for all the help I can get:)

Yes - if you haven't fixed this yet, I had the same problem. The hole in my oil pan came from the repair shop - of all places - putting in a bolt that was too long on the bottom engine cover. It rubbed a hole in the pan! 

 

I repaired this doing the following:

 

1. Dried the oil around the hole.

2. Using High Heat sealant, I made a small ball and stuffed it in the hole.

3. I used high heat JB Weld over the sealant and let it all dry.

 

3 years later and still holding. No leaks, but I don't go back to the same repair shop, which is supposedly Porsche certified.
