1999 996 C4 engine


Vehicle Information: Year: 1999; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 48,000;

Once again, thanks for an informative section. I'd like to add to the 1999 996 rear main seal discussion with a question. In 4/2000, my car's rear main seal was replaced (at 6160 miles). I had enough problems with the car that Porsche extended my warranty to 2005 and 62500 miles. I now have 48,000 miles on the car and the last year has been trouble free(knock wood). I love my car, and it is treated like a queen; I could/can get a new one....but like mine. Am I out of the woods on this very early production line 996 or could trouble still loom and I should dump the car for a new one? Are the new ones trouble free?
