Get it to the shop NOW & have your oil seperator replaced!
I was told,.."had u not stopped immediately when the check engine light came on
You could have caused MAJOR ENGINE Damage!
I saw a post where someone paid $2500 for the
Same work , that I was charged $789 for by a
PORSCHE dealership in Atlanta! The part is only
$100 $ rest for labor! I found a video on the web
"How to DIY" & it REALLY didn't look like so much work!
It's not like u have to take the engine apart to get to it!
BUT!!! I'm a woman & this is a "MANS JOB!"..
Kinda like a man leaves "mopping&dusting" to a
WOMAN!!! ha!..just sayin!...GOOD LUCK!
Sign me,.."Been THERE&..SO GLAD I didn't
Blow my engine!!!" ;)
Yep,thats what problem was.Paid a similar amount to local Porsch shop.Thanks for your reply
