1999 996 and boxster engine failure


Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 99; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 42000;

My driving instructor at DE blew his 996 engine at the track last week and it scared me to hear from a fellow member that this is not uncommon. A porsche mechanic at the track said that a cylinder sleeve moved allowing water to get into the cylinder. He says this has happened to several club members and there is no preventive measure. He also said that porsche NA has been very good about helping replace engines out of warranty. Have you heard of this problem and is there anything that can be done as a preventitive measure ?
