Hi,
Have you spilled any oil? Otherwise, you may have leaky gaskets putting oil on exhaust pipes..

2004 porsche cayanne turboe valve adjustment


Most vehicles including Porshe V8 have hydraulic valve lifters, only early 911's had mechanical lifters as I recall, was a pain to adjust every 20K or so. If you are hearing a tap, it is probably stuck valve lifter, try Lucas Oil Additive to unplug it and free it up.

Good luck, FREE-PPV

Can i change my engine from porsche cayenne s model 2004 to turbo engine


Anything is possible. Whether it is legal or not, depends on where you live. However, just the fact that you would ask a question like that, makes me seriously doubtfull that you should attempt any such undertaking yourself.

If your Porsche is not fast enough for you...trade it in on a Veyron.

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.

    I like to change oil myself (ensure plug is in correctly and filter tight). How difficult is this for my 2006 Porsche Caymen S or should I just take to dealer?


    If your novice at oil changes, I recommend taking it to the dealer especially, your vehicle being a porsche you don't want to make a mistake thats going to cost you an engine. If the dealer messes up they have insurance for that, so play it safe its not worth your time to save a couple of bucks.... on a Porsche god bless.

    Smoke emissions when starting after a period of non use


    White smoke is water and bluish smoke is oil. Years ago manufacturers used a special break in oil in new engines and it wasn't uncommon for some of this to burn off during break-in. The first oil change fixed that. I don't know that any manufacturers do it anymore. If Porshe does there will be a reference to that fact in your owner's manual.
    I think you are on the right track and I would be getting the car back to the dealer, start the documentation paper trail. Make sure you are following Porshe's engine break-in instructions in your owner's manual because they will be able to check some of it from the on-board computer and may be able to void your warranty if they find anything. It's also possible that this problem may go away when you do the first oil change, but it won't hurt to make them aware of the situation. Hope this helps.
