2002 996 Smoke at startup - part 3


Vehicle Information: Year: 2002; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 7200;

Here we go again. The story about smoke at startup.The car has been back at the dealer for 2 days and the conclusion is "no leaks, good compression, the smoke is likely a seal with the opening downwards".Needless to say I am not happy with this as the smoke seems to be getting worse instead of better lately and I drive the car daily (!).Where can I take my complaint if the dealer considers this OK and no cause for further action?It has been pretty warm in NY lately (90+)and I have refilled in total 4 quarts of 10W30 Mobil Synthetic.Reading your latest feedback on synthetic oils, I wonder if this can cause the excessive smoke?Would it be better to change the oil completely. Which oil would you suggest?Sorry to be such a pain on this subject, but I have saved quite a while for my first new 911 and the smoke is really embarrasing.
