Question about 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera

1 Answer

Just serviced my 911 turbo and oil pressure light has come on i am wondering if i have carried out the service correctly

Drained oil (2002 911 turbo). Only a small amount of oil came from the sump so unscrewed 2 other drain plugs which drained the rest of the oil approx 7-8 litres of oil. Put oil into filler cap indicated with oil sign. Got an almighty knocking sound. Turned car off right away. Drained oil again and this time fed half through oil filter position and half through oil cap where indicated. Knocking stopped but now the oil pressure light has come on. Can you please advice on what needs looking into? Thanks

SOURCE: Oil level was too high/burning oil now

That is not correct.
You need to drive the car untill the oil burns out from your muffler.Don`t try it in the garage -need`s to be driven.
No repairs needed.
Make sure you check your oil level only in idle and warm engine.
always leave about 5mm before the top mark in case of overheating.

SOURCE: overfilled engine oil on a

The oil was overfilled this could cause a large amount of oil to enter the exaust and possibly the intake depending on crank case ventilation conditions. If you are positive engine oil levels are adjusted perfectly(warm engine check level running for dry sump oil level ect.). Time is needed to burn off oil residue in exhaust system and intake. Warm up engine low rpm no load, drive vehicle slow with little boost over 5 mins slowly raise rpms for another 5 mins keep driving smoke will burn off while making other drivers mad. sorry just smile and wave.
The engine oil on this vehicle should only be changed by an experinced tech.

Mahindra scorpio 2002 model crde engine oil coming to air separator n turbo inlet from oil sump


Hi
Turbo cars do drag some oily residue through the inlet system and, if the hose seals are worn, wil drip oil. This is all ok..just clean up the hoses and fit new seals. Make sure you always flush engine oil and use a new oil filter with the CORRECT engine oil.
If the airways are not correctly serviced, air mass meters, sensors, throttle body, egr will all get clogged up.
Regular service saves money.
Cheers

Just had my 120000 service done on a XC90 which I just purchased. It was running just fine and then started to consume oil like crazy. Took it back to mechanic and he said the turbo is going out. No...


There is the possibility,the turbo was going out and the previous owner had thicker oil with oil treatment additive in the engine,hiding the turbo seal problem.Did your service include an oil and filter change? Your new regular (proper viscosity) oil may now be showing the leaky turbo seal.Did you have a oil change done at your service?Once you have the seal/turbo rebuilt,may sure to always idle the engine a minute before shut off after fast driving.This will increase the life of the turbo seals.

My stop light keeps coming up with the problem oil pressure,i have a golf gti turbo


Get the oil pressure tested with an outside gauge. If you run short of oil pressure, turbo and engine will suffer, as you know....

If you are actually short on pressure, you would need to investigate further, usually no good answers there....

But commonly a transducer fails and gives wrong readings, hope for this result

89 C4 911 gauges reading incorrectly?


These cars are funky and this is normal...gauges on all of the earlier cars are for general reference...checking the oil level manually while the car is running and warmed up is the most proper way to do this...generally speaking, your pressure should drop as the car warms up, but still reach 5 bar on full accelleration (928's have the same gauge). The oil level gauge will actually increase as the car warms up...the difference can be dramatic.

How much oil does porsche 996 take 2004model twin turbo + if iv put 8.5 liters witch i did n it smoked n i drained it all out n added 4 then drove the car to clear the smoke witch it did has it damaged my...


The smoke is obviously a big indicator you have oil in the combustion chamber. On turbo motors it is likely coming from a leaking oil seal in the turbo housing itself. But there is a possibility of internal damage like a piston. Might want to run a compression test to eliminate any internal engine issues first, then focus back on the turbo oil seals.

Freelander TD4 2004 Engine light comes on at 3000rpm cuts power


I don't wish to worry you but I think the turbo kicks in at around 2500rpm and it sounds like it isn't doing so, hence the management light coming on. It could be that failing. Be careful here, apparently the turbo uses the engine oil to maintain its operating temperature and if the turbo seals fail in anyway it eats the engine oil, with the resulting total failure of the power unit. So if you do nothing else, keep an eye on the engine oil level. (You may also notice oil smoke out the exhaust as well).
Unfortunately it looks like a trip to the dealer for them to check what the engine management is saying.

2002 audi a4 oil light issue


There are potentially two different problems here.
1. A fault with the actual oil pressure.
2. An electrical fault with the switching circuit.

If you are confident the problem is not with the oil pressure, disconnect the wiring from the switch for a period of time. If the light still comes on periodically the fault must be with the wiring circuit shorting to earth. There will be no fire hazard to this approach as the voltage will drop over dash lamp.

However if the problem is with the oil supply system, the danger with this approach is you are potentially unaware of a serious problem

Such as the oil filter collapsed or the oil pressure release spring could be jammed open/closed which would cause the engine to not have the correct operating pressure.
