    Hi John, yes, it does. There are two very skinny coolant lines going into the AOS. All 996s are like that. Only the AOS of the Boxsters don't have those coolant ports.

    Yeah, if there was recent work in the engine, I supposed that's possible. I guess just keep an eye on the coolant tank and coolant temp then.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I called Porsche that did the PPI and of course they said the technician inspected the expansion tank and found nothing wrong... which I believe highly improbable. I cleaned the majority of that gunk sitting in the coolant tank around the walls and top of reservoir and now there is just a slight layer on the surface.
    Of course anything is possible, but my belief is that given the engine was worked recently, it could have had a problem like this which was fixed and there was some residual dirt in the cooling system. This car has barely been driven in the past few years and perhaps my long trip home to VA from when I picked it up in PA might have moved some stuff around a bit.
    No signs of coolant in oil, oil pressure is good and temperature never goes past the 8 at the 180 mark.
    I am crossing my fingers it might need a coolant flush and a new expansion tank/cap. Worst case scenario in my hopeful world would be a oil cooler replacement.

    Hi Ahsai,

    I have been reading some of the numerous threads on intermix/coolant and found out my recent 99 C2 996 purchase is showing symptoms of oil mixed in the coolant, but not the other way around. I had the car inspected by Porsche before the purchase and cant believe they missed this. Really concerned on the implications and would like some guidance if possible.

    THank you very much.

    Hey Ahsai

    Update broke down again today! But this time when driving - 20 minutes in car completely stopped all the startup lights on dash on.

    Try restart same one crank then stops. Jump out lock unlock a few times then it works

    But then less than 1km down the road stops again

    I decide tow to Porsche dealer see if they have better computer diagnostics

    This is first time stopped when driving though eventually restarted

    I replaced fuel pump last year and as said immobiliser new ecu repaired

    This seems to be correct for your engine but please check on
    $270, not too bad. You may as well replace the whole thing to eliminate the old one completely. Can leave the old one as a spare or rebuild.

    I know the solenoid is not seperately available for the starter of the N/A 996 but it's a different starter. You can google pics of your starter and see if you can see the p/n of the solenoid and go from there.

    Just let you know drove to beach today 31c 80% humidity

    Car sat for two hours when I started it no problems

    So not sure heat related plus intermittent!

    Sounds dumb but I kinda want it to fail not start then can isolate the issue with your tests

    I'm really thinking starter or solenoid since don't most other things

    Can you buy solenoid separate or only with starter?

    Thanks again!
