1997 Porsche 911 Problems

Over time, the engine can leak oil at various locations. Early-production vehicles require engine disassembly and modification to resolve leaks at the cylinder heads, oil return tubes, valve covers, timing cover, chain housings, case through bolts, and lines to/from the oil cooler.

Wind noise at the front of the car and water leaks at the vent wing are typical problems on Targa models.
