2011 Porsche 997 Turbo S

Hi There,

I did read back a while ago that 'accute/regular' RMS failure was possibly due to the crankshaft not being concentric with the bearing/seal assembly. I understand that they should measure this out of tolerance and if it exceeds their manufacturing limits a replacement engine is fitted FOC.

It may be worth searching Rennlist forums for this as it is a known TSB, good luck!

My experience seems to be that about 1 in 3 cars i buy needs an RMS,

and bearing in mind i rarely buy a car over 20,000 miles,

i find if its gone once and it'll go again

BUT the techys are telling me that they think the latest seals- the 7th modification appears to have done the trick, the latest seal came out about 12 months ago and they appear to be holding up better.

The problem is costing me a fortune - 600 a car,

I've had a 3,000 mile car with the rms done 18 months ago at 2100 miles, needed doing again,

Ive got an 2003 8500 rms done at 4500 miles 18 months ago, gone again and also the last time it was done they never changed the intermediate shaft seal,

I'm not 100% sure but i have a theory that the intermediate shaft seal is just as if not more of a problem than the RMS.



Another question which i did raise here a couple of months back but generated no debate was

Ive just had 3 993's which needed the rms done? but ive not seen any discussion re 993 RMS's

The 993 RMS leak is purely down to age and not bad design. The RMS problem that the 996 suffers from is a totally different situation altogether and that is probably why there was no debate. As you said yourself, 996s that have done little mileage suffer from RMS failure against cars that are now pushing 10 - 12 years old.

Simlar to the 993 you get the odd RMS on 996 GT3, Turbo etc being due to age. As the engines are related this makes sense.

Ian.

Mark, I have heard in other threads that Tiptronics don't suffer from RMS as much, something about the gearbox, is that true in your opinion/experience?
