2000 996 Carrera Oil Level - Final


Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 2000; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 19900;

Great news...followed your instructions to back off the drain plug to drop the oil level down to or below full.Better news is that it wasn't messy at all. By backing off till warm oil started dripping, I was able to position a catch pan underneath and then turn another 1.5 turns till oil trickled out in a measurable, steady stream. I drained off about 10 oz. and just tightened it back up. Very little clean up and I didn't even jack up the car!For those who also accidentally overfill, this turned out to be an easy fix.Thanks again (till next time :-).
