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?

Hello Renntech Community. Hope everyone has had a lovely day/ evening. Well... After owning 2 previous porsche's there is no doubt we all run into A LOT of issues. I have an 04 Boxster S with 117K miles on her. Well taken care of, just recently had an oil change. While driving my car on the interstate i felt a drag in the acceleration.It felt like the clutch was slipping but after driving it a little more it cleared up... (Previously was an oil leak, I tightened the drain plug and added more oil prior to this incident and all was well) Then, while driving the car would accelerate any more, I attempted to downshift but it kept happening. The car died after I pulled off on the highway and after continuous hours of attempting and failing I called a flat bed and had her taken home. I ran tests on the relay, All is well with it. I added gas and a octane booster to attempt to clean it out. That didnt work. Checked fuses and those are all good. I suspect a fuel pump but Im not sure. Thank you!
- Hopefully this is all enough information to help me out
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
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?
The left door key switch on my 00’ 996 c4 will not lock or unlock. I took the handle and bracket out of the door frame. I was told what usually breaks is the cylinder but nothing appears to be broken. I don’t want to buy a new key so simply replacing the bracket isn’t an option. Is there a straight forward solution or do I need a specialist??
Any my feedback would be much appreciated thanks!
