Car hits fluid then collects the earlier accident.

"Someone had lost cooler ant water at Laud links and there were two accidents before I arrived," said the driver on his YouTube channel.

After crashing into the wall, the Porsche turned around itself twice and slammed into a Mitsubishi EVO all the way at the end of Bergwerk.

Yet more life threatening coolant spill's, hope the culprit wasn't another P car, if it was should have welded coolant fitting before tracking, especially at 'ring.

2004 Porsche 996 Turbo

PostPosted: Wed Mar 27, 2013 1:06 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I must admit that I haven't, I mentioned it a few days ago as a reason for turbo owners to be paranoid. It seems there are two options, either welding the fittings, or simply putting a screw in them. I can see that the screw should work but doesn't seem like a 'proper' fix. It will stop them moving and if the adhesive is good it should stop any movement at all.
I think that when I next have the engine out of mine I'll enquire about getting them all done.

That's seriously bad! I'm surprised there was no-one waving at cars approaching to slow down, especially with so many cars stopped on the track/road. Gutted for the owner! nooo

I asked Porsche about this but they said they wouldnt weld it because if they ever need that pipe off it'd be difficult and the warranty would be void Dont know

I don't really understand that, I thought that these pipes are glued in at production and should be in for life, they are not something that is removed for any service reason. At least, this is the first I have heard of this. Do you have any further details?

I think the first is more a excuse than anything but I'll ask again once it's going in for its service in may/June.
Sorry can't be anymore helpful. It was Porsche gb that told me the above and they said they've never had any leaks or failure and dont see the need to modify that pipe.
I might have it on my mail box but can't find it.

Yes. Done last year as part of a comprehensive rebuild but it wasn't hard to separate some of the pipes from the castings so just caught in time I suspect.

Oh man you done the 3.9 rebuild Very Happy Thumb

To have it done I need to drop the engine out yeh?? Its a big job especially when am not looking for a rebuild anytime soon either.
How many hours would it take to drop the engine out and sort out the problem?

You're looking at something like 24 hours including enough of a strip to expose the castings & take them off & refit everything back again. Then you need to find yourself a competent alloy welder.

If you are paying to have it all done by an indie, I'd budget about £2K.

Hi mate,

How much did they charge and how long did they keep the vehicle for?
Cheers
