But if this is an oil pipe that is defective at the crimp like in OP's car, I'd like to have it replaced.
I think I've seen posted in another thread a crimped area on the oil tank reservoir (seam for welding), not a pipe. Hmm, didn't know the pipe was a separate issue...

Yeah the pipe is a separate issue. This pipe feeds oil through the center of crank pulley to the new hollowed crank.

I suggest all of .2 GT3/RS owners should take a look at yours.




Just had this problem dx/rx on my .2. Oil droplets in diffuser tray. 1800mi. Probably good idea to check inside diffuser for this issue.

5W-40 is fine or better yet 5-50 for track toys but for cars more oftenly used 0W-40 is the only oil (0W) that will get warm enough within 5-10min to be able to drive over 2k rpm.

My paperwork shows new oil pipe part number ends with 93 while the PET shows 92. Should be an updated part.
There is a 300 mile .2 GT3RS in for the same oil leak. Looks like a common problem.

Looks like my RS may have the same problem.

Yikes, not good. I will have to look at mine too. Suspect this is why all those GT3s and RSs are now being held up at port. my 991.1 RS was a freaking tank, never had a single issue. In my 991.2 RS I've already had a headlamp failure, now suspect this issue will be a mass recall. Bummer

Joe - what part is in your photo? Doesn’t look like the crank pulley...

So, possibly a PDK issue and not an engine problem? I just inspected my Touring ( with limited tools and space) and not a drop of oil was found anywhere. Also put my VIN# in Porsche's Recall web site and nothing showed up as of 12/13/2018.
