996 Engine Poll (intermediate shaft)


Vehicle Information: Model: Carrera 4; Year: 1999; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 60000;

Im replying to the poll question. I just had my complete 996 engine replaced because of the intermediate shaft. I was concern about the RMS but as it turns out, it was okay and the intermediate shaft was a bit loose. The service advisor recommended the engine change but also gave me the option. I didnt want to revisit them later so I had the new engine ordered and installed. The new engine has all the upgrades that were on the latest 3.4L engine even a new AC compressor, it was plug and play for the Porsche tech and not my wallet. Yes, it does feel like it was worth it, especially with the 2 year unlimited mileage warranty. Engine light, what engine light? Im one of the lucky ones that fell in the 10%.
