    You have some small pipes running back there that carry coolant to the rear of the engine, front? I don't know which way your engine sits, But some are about 1 inch diameter and others are about 1/4 inch, they are sealed with o-rings in the castings, the O-rings have gone bad, or a hose has gone bad back there, but either way, you have to get back there to find it. and you have to to remove the intake. Refill with 50/50 premixed. I will leave this open for somebody else to answer, but I am pretty sure that is what you got. Hope this helps.

The most common problem will be a split pipe - i'd see a garage.

    I had a leak in my 2002 cabriolet that damaged the coolant pump. Check the pump gasket before it happens to you

What is the comon fault


The most serious common faults are with the standard 3.4 engine in the early 996 Carrera models (not applicable to Turbo engined vehicles which is a different engine design):

1. The engine cylinder liners develop hairline cracks. (Engine replacement or rebuild required).

2. The intermediate shaft bearings fail in these engines (a well known design fault). Failure requires engine replacement.

3. The rear main seals in the engines fail as exhibited by a slowly worsening oil leak. The seal needs to be replaced when they leak. It's an expensive job.

Problems 1 and 2 are serious have resulted in many engine replacements. Problems 2 and 3 remained when Porsche upgraded to the standard 3.6 engine in the series two 996 Carrera models (problems not applicable to Turbo engines)..

There are a few other issues such as Air Conditioning condensers that clog up with road debris and eventually become porous and fail.

Oil appears in the coolant reservoir bottle


Hi,

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.
966b111.jpg
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.

Do you know of 2000 Porsches with the problem of the coolant mixing with the oil?


If you are getting coolant mixed into your oil it sounds like your head gasket is leaking, I hate to give bad news but that;s not easy to replace and it's gonna be expensive.

Best of luck
