1990 964 c4 sudden and voluminous oil leak


Vehicle Information: Year: 1990; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 45387;

Joel. Developed a sudden and voluminous oil leak in my 964. A local Porsche dealer performed the 60,000 mile service less than 800 miles ago and at that time there was no evidence of any leaking. Unfortunately, we are in an area of FL hit by the storms and the local Bosch shop where I would go to drop the cover, clean the engine and search for the source is not open. I've sent the car to the nearest Porsche service center. Leak appears to be located on the drivers side toward the front of the engine. Considering the volume, not just drops, when the engine is running I suspect a return line. The leak continues for sometime after you shut the car down. Otherwise everything I can se on the engine looks dry. Lastly, is there anything in the 60,000 mile service that might have contributed to this. Any counsel or opinions much appreciated as I will meet with the service manager early next week. Thank You
