unusual exhaust soot


Vehicle Information: Model : 997; Year: 2006; Mileage: 1900;

I am new to PCA, and I would like to comment on the question asked by the gentleman with unusual soot from the exhaust. I had a similar problem, my friend noticed that one of the tail pipes was covered with soot while the other was clean as a whistle. I called my local Porshe dealer and spoke with one of the guys, they said to make and appointment to check to see how muck oil was really being consumed, well to make a long story short, I ended up take the car in before the appointment, spoke with the shop manager and the car was taken in the following day fof compression measurements, turns out the problem was an engine that the cylinders were not completely round. Porsche corp. replaced the entire engine, which was covered under the warranty. The only problem I see now is that the serial numbers for the chassis and the engine don't match, and I don't know what will happen if I decide to sell it forward in the future. At this time the car rune better than before, I'm very pleased with what Porshe did with this problem.
