Question about 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe
I have a 997 Carrera S Tip on 54 plate with 46,000 miles on the clock which I purchased from a specialist dealer in early June 2008. I have noticed that the oil consumption is excessive (approx 1 litre every 500 miles) and that the exhaust on the left hand side becomes "sooty" after about 100 miles. Has anyone heard of this problem and what maybe the cause. The vehicle is under warranty.
2006 C4S Tip, 26,000 miles Now in Porsche dealership having the engine stripped. They are suggesting that one of the pistons is starting to fail. Their diagnostic equipment shows no fault codes but further testing has shown that one bank is having to work harder than the other side. Their prognosis is a new engine. Do not let your warranty expire!!! Also see here: http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=48&t=731645&mid=154532&i=0&nmt=OPC - Does this sound odd to you?&mid=154532
