2000 Porsche Boxster S Question: Minor oil leak

 

Question

Hi, I need some input I love my 2000 Porsche Boxster but not sure what to do. I found a few small oil spots in my driveway so I brought it to the local import repair shop before my extended warranty expires. He told me I need to replace my gasket valve, o-ring and oil net so I asked him how much it will cost to repair he said he does not repair leaks. This doesn’t sit right with me. I only had a few small oil spots in my driveway. Do you think he is feeding me a line because I am a girl? Thoughts?

    You have to find a shop that work on Porsche . The Boxter is a mid engine car not that easy to work on and some shop may not feel comfortable to work on due to lack of experience.

    There are some shops that will not address oil leaks. For an inexperienced shop oil leaks can be very hard to find. You need to find another Porsche friendly shop.
