    More of a 997 forum?

    Just recently been cruising this forum, I would say it is much more active on 997's than 996's, while rennlist is more active on 996's. This site is more International, rather than US focused. Just a couple of observations.
    No one talking about their RMS leaks over here? My car is going into the Porsche dealer in Dubai after 2 leaks, they might consider getting a rebuilt engine, as it seems useless to fix again. Am not that excited as I've heard of many rebuilt engines agian suffering the same problem. Dunno I am depressed and lost a lot of confidence in my once pride and joy PCar

    Re: More of a 997 forum?

    Hang in there "Dubai911" The remanufactured engine will be under warranty so don't worry, don't let RMS leaks stop you from enjoying the car, it didn't stop me. If it happens, it happens, but nothing you can do will change it so...

    BTW, both your observations are correct.

    ... and welcome to the forum

    Carlos, did you get a 997?

    welcome to the board rhamy

    there have been a lot of discussions about this RMS leakage here on rennteam as well. check this out for example:

    Interesting thread ZZboba. Thank you.
    I asked because I recall seeing a post from RC that PAG cruised these forums, and I hope they are listening!

    They are listening but you know how it works at companies, especially since Porsche grew bigger: the information is passed on to several departments, it has to be analized, looked into it, it has to be evaluated, it has to be...well, you get my point. It may take a long time until a problem/issue is corrected in production.
    Long time means: probably in the next generation.

    Regarding the RMS issue and the 997: up til now I'm not aware of any confirmed case but of course this doesn't mean that it doesn't or didn't happen. Due to the nature of the 997 Carrera S engine, the M97, it is less likely that this engine has the RMS issue but it could happen on the 997 Carrera (not S). Time will tell...
