Fuel door failed to open at servo. Tried (in vain) emergency release cable inside passenger door.  Flap opens part way & the actuator covered by telescopic rubber boot is working. Issue seems to be the latching pin failing to retract or turn to fully disengage the door.

Try a burst of WD-40 on the latching pin, followed by locking/unlocking to see if that frees things up.

Sounds like it may have gotten misaligned. If that is the case it will be a bit of a pain to realign and tighten down again.

See my DIY for replacing the fuel door solenoid...

Thanks Loren, I have zapped it up with WD40 but it looks like the actuator is electrically dead. I will try the well documented DIY fix & let you know.

      In the new 911 GT3 RS, we are once again breaking down the barrier between sports car and race car. See how Walter Röhrl gets behind the wheel on the racetrack and learn all about the product highlights in this video.

      I did an oil change on my 2004 996 Carrera using the correct amount of Porsche specified oil about 1,500 miles ago. Now after running and car and letting the oil settle back to the oil pan the dash computer level and dipstick are reading the same. The oil level is half way from the min/max levels. 
       
      I know that the oil level is in the acceptable range now, but is considered having low oil?
       
      The reason why I am asking is because I brought my car to get diagnosed (and fixed) for a faulty oil pressure sending unit problem that occurs rarely when the dash warning pops up saying oil failure and the oil pressure gauge goes to 0. Then when I shut off the car the error disappears. I think it has to be the oil pressure sending unit, especially from other similar issues on this forum.
       
      Some history on my car. Well I bought the car from carmax and purchased the maxcare warranty.  I was going to put the part and do it myself but it was too easy and I said let me use the warranty (since they would use Porsche parts) and I won't have to buy the part. So when I bring it in they tell me that if they can't find a fault they have to charge me a diagnostic fee. I said ok I know what the problem is and the oil pressure sending unit is covered under the warranty so go ahead. 
       
      The call me back with the results and told me that their Alltel computer diagnostic system did not read any faults and the first thing they did was check the oil level and it was low. I was upset because I run the oil check every time I run the car and I never received a low oil light on. I ran over there because I thought the technician doesn't know how to read Porsche oil and we confirmed that the oil level was smack in the middle of the min and max lines and no light on the dash. My response was oil level is good. His response was that oil level is low and that could be the cause of the oil pressure sending unit. My first question is that oil level considered have oil that is too low? 
       
      I need help because I feel Carmax just conned me out of a diagnostic fee because they didn't even proceed to look for a loose wire or anything. They said if the oil level is low thats the first thing that needs to be fixed. I would understand if the oil level is low. But it is in the middle of the dipstick in the acceptable range?
       
      Please let me know if my logic or theirs is wrong. Thanks.
