Hi guys
New to the forum
While reversing my 996 on the drive last night I managed to stall it twice while reversing 🙄 right at the point where I stalled it's left a strip of what looks like oil on the floor, after parking there's no oil dripping anywhere, cars in great shape aswell
Any suggestions or should I get it checked out by a specialist

Many thanks
Matt

Need more information. A photo of the area it came from would be a good starting point.

I've got no idea where it came from, there no leaks on the floor where it's parked and no sign of leaks ?

Its very likely to be condensate (water) from the AC unit if its evaporated since you saw it. Easily mistaken for an oil leak if the car stalls and rolls back a little.
