    Re: Could someone post a description of exactly what the RMS

    See my other post.

    The seal between what and what part of the engine? Excuse my ignorance....

    Re: What IS the rear main seal though?

    yep, this 9 model year (and counting) Porsche problem appears to be the one Ford diagnosed, "fixed", and "announced" a few months after production started on their Ford GT. however, pcar owners somehow think it reflects badly on Ford, but not on Porsche.

    c4s you are not helpfull be more simple its something he cannot picture

    Re: What IS the rear main seal though?

    I'll try and post a pic later.

    Re: What IS the rear main seal though?

    this would be very very helpful!! i m also interested to find out about this issue i mnot quite informed

    Well my car is at the dealer and he said there is a RECALL

    on it. I didn't have any issues with it. So Porsche looks like they are dealing with it now at least.... anyone have details on the recall ?

    Re: Could someone post a description of exactly what the RMS

    The RMS is the thing that leaked oil all over my garage, and has kept my 997s out of service for 16 days now, for a running total of 38 days out of service. When, or if they ever call me to say it's fixed, I'll have to mention to them about the garage door opener's range. I thought that it was just my car with a 20 foot range. Thanks for the post John SF.

    ok my issue is NOT RMS - It's a recall for crank case

    machining error..... And it's not listed on that list I guess...

    What is the recall number? Your dealer should know.
