1996 993 Oil Leaked Follow Up


Vehicle Information: Model: 993; Year: 1996; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 88500;

Followed your guidance, the oil level was corrected by measured and checked with the oil dip stick. However, the problem of oil leaked was still there. I believed the oil leaked from the right lower valve cover and collected on top of the exhausted housing and then dropped onto the garage floor (quite a bit, looked like a pool of oil). I noticed that this issue started as soon as I swiched from 15W-50 to the recommended 0W-40. I do have a set of new lower valve gasket and plan to remove and replace soon. In the mean times, is this oil leaked problem could be caused by other mechanical related issues that I should take care of, and what are the causes that could effect the engine if this problem is not taking care of. The car drove fined without any problem. Your guidances are greatly appreciated.Regards
