    Oil level??

    Hey guys,

    Just got word that my 997S is in the paintshop. As it is my first porsche I was wondering if you guys who have more experience with the cars could help me out. Is it normal that the oil level goes down? is it something that I will just have to deal with? Is it something to watch for or be worried about? Do you check the level while the engine is warm or cold? On my AMG the engine had to be cold. I was also curious if this was a normal thing with the porsches that one might have to top up some oil once in awhile?

    Thanks
    Ciao

    Re: Oil level??

    Nothing to worry about it is normal. from time to time you need to monitor the oil level and top it off it needed, of course not too frequently.

    To give you an example, I have a '00 996 and I had to add a 1 liter of oil almost after 9k miles and it also depends on your driving habit too.

    Re: Oil level??

    Check for oil level after filling petrol; you can notice that after having filled the car with some 98 RON, paid for your petrol [a matter of 4 minutes], restarting your car gives you instantly your oil level automatically.
    Apart from this situation, check the level when the motor is warm, and the car on a flat surface.

    Also,
    coolant level: when the engine is cold, on a flat surface
    Hydraulic fluid reservoir for power sterring: cold engine, on a flat surface
    Brake fluid level: cold engine, on a flat surface
