    No Oil Leaks 1

    Very clean underneath !

    Re: No Oil Leaks 1

    Yes, looks good. 996 problems with RMS made me a bit concerned and I've checked my newly laid garage floor since the cars arrival and am happy to report no leaks to date, the cars aproaching 4,000 miles, although I have used 2 litres of oil to date.

    Re: No Oil Leaks 1

    I have about 2400 miles on my 997S and no leaks either. I've had to add an extra quart of oil about 500 miles ago.

    Id have the oil and filter changed. Its a new motor.

    Other than that, read your manual to learn how to check your oil level correctly. Never add oil unless you need it.

    How many years will it take Porsche to start offering polished aluminum crankcase, polished exhaust, under-car lighting AND low-rider bouncy air shocks as Porsche Exclusive options?

    Imagine the po$$ibilitie$!


    Re: No Oil Leaks 1

    check allways the oil level manually
    my 996 needs one litre the first 1000 km.....
    no warranty without oil in the engine

    Re: No Oil Leaks 1

    No oil leak either...my car is one of the first 200 cars produced. Now I have almost 12000 km with it...
    But I had a broken screw which has been tightened too much by the engine builder, I lost a little bit of coolant. The screw has been replaced but it made me worry a little bit about the other screws...

    Re: No Oil Leaks 1

    Jeeps guys why sound so grateful that you dont have leaks with so little miles..I should think so to , with the prices we pay for the product in question...

    It should be case end of story

    I mean any new vehicle should not leak period regardless of history..

    throt.

    Fargo : with the 997, no way to check it manually (no oil gauge) : have to check it by the computer and pray for no bugs in it
    It was nice to meet you and your charming wife yesterday.

    My car has 1750 km now. (pure joy).
    I've had to add 0.4 liter oil at 1200 km. I suppose it's normal during the break-in period.
    No oil leak under the car : everything seems to remain dry.
    I'm beginning to reach 5000-6000 rpm occasionnaly. The sound of the resonator seems not totally free, but maybe it's because I don't frankly push it over 5000-6000 rpm.
    I'll wait until reaching 2000 km to really unleash the beast.

    Re: No Oil Leaks 1

    4900 miles...no leaks...keeping fingers crossed.
