1997 993 Carrera S - Another valve guide question


Vehicle Information: Model: 993C2S; Year: 1997; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 11k;

I could not help but notice a recent question from a 993 owner regarding oil usage and valve guide wear. To paraphrase your reply, I believe you advised that if the owner was getting several thousand miles on a quart of oil, he would probably continue to do so, while if he was only getting about 500 miles to a quart, his valve guides were already a problem. That car, I recall, had about 48k on it. My C2S has llk and I'm getting about six hundred miles to a quart. It does not leak or smoke (other than that you get when starting the car), and I don't have any other problem with it. Seems to me a little early to be worrying about the valve guides, but would like your views. Thanks. Region: PotomacTotal Mileage: 11kCar Use: Street use only
