Oil appears in the coolant reservoir bottle


To my knowledge, most oil coolers would be In Front Right Fender for 1995-1998 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 and would look something like the image below.
Although I have strong doubts that your seals are needing replacement. Should they be worn out, defective oil seals would exhibit leaks that would be noticeable. Nonetheless, if you would follow the two hoses connected to the oil cooler, they would lead you right back to their entrance and exit points in the engine.

Oil mixing with the coolant and visible in the coolant reservoir indicates another problem, most probably head gasket.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How do I change the oil on a Porsche 911 Turbo? Anything I sould know?

  • Jack up your Porsche using a floor jack and place the car securely on jack stands at all four corners using the factory jacking points.
  • 2 Place an oil container under the oil drain plug of the motor.
  • 3 Using an 8-mm allen socket, remove the drain plug at the bottom of the oil pan.
  • 4 Let the oil drain thoroughly--this will take about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • 5 Once all the oil is drained from the engine, install a new drain plug along with a new aluminum sealing washer. Tighten the drain plug to 37 lbs .

  • The oil filter cartridge is located in front of the oil pan on the right side. With an oil filter removal wrench, unscrew and remove the cartridge. Be careful of spilling oil.
  • Install a new oil filter cartridge and O-ring. Before installation, run a bead of oil around the O-ring to lubricate it. Torque the oil filter cartridge to 19 lbs.
  • Pour new oil into the oil filler neck located in the engine bay. 1998 to 2001 911s (996) take 8.5 quarts, and 2004 and up take 8.25 quarts. Newer 911s (997) take 9 quarts. When filling the engine with oil, pour in 8 quarts and then use the dipstick to get the amount of oil exact.
  • Lower the car off the jackstands.

    Have not started1986 Porsche 911 in over 1 year, anything special I should do or check before starting (other than oil)?

    Hello there
    You should take your fuel tank sending unit out and try to smell your fuel if it has a bad smell you will need to drain the tank.To take the sending unit out -8mm socket wrench 6 nut to be removed.then disconnect the connector and pull out the sending unit.

    If is ok -just charge the battery and start the Porsche.
    If it is running replace the fuel filter and later the oil as well.Oil should have 6 month or 6 000 miles.

    I am looking at a 2001 base 911. Can you tell me what the scheduled maintainance intervals are and what they entail. The car has 45,000 miles

    To stay true to the Porsche value of ownership, you should take the car into a dealership as they electronically input data into their system and a pump is required to do oil changes since their is oil in lines traveling to the cooler at the front of the car. One mistake and you are out an engine.
