I had a local guy change my oil. He didn't know that it had 2 drain plus. He overfilled the oil and now I am leaking in three different spots. I took it to a porsche dealer and he said that the egine oil psi is at 28 and it should be on 60psi. They said it is something inside the engine and it will cost 15-20 thousand to fix but they don't know what it is. Any suggestions? Do you known of anyone in the New York area that works on porsche besides the dealer?

Check Engine Light

Vehicle Information: Year: 2001; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.6L, Twin Turbo; Total Mileage: 54000;

I keep getting a "Check Engine Light" come on. Today, it was cold(for California) and I began idling a bit to warm up the engine and the light came on after 15 seconds. I have had the problem before and have had misfires on different cylinders per the computer check. I have previously had coils replaced on the #4 and #6 cylinders to "fix the problem". Do you have any suggestions??

After warm engine cuts in and out/Surges till only idles

Vehicle Information: Year: 1979; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3; Total Mileage: 94,000;

Fresh Re-Build, starts right up,engine cuts out at 3200 rpm, or anytime you run rpms up that high, then as you drive the thresh hold becomes lower and lower til it will idle only. Shut the car off for 5-30 minutes and you will get 1/2 -1 mile before it starts again. My mechanic said it was old gas since the car sat for a couple of years, and he neglected to drain all the gas out after overhaul of engine and transmission. Thank You
