IMS failure for your 997 car, Y or N? tell us (yr, 997.1, .2, m96, m97, failure mode)
Many have been asking to understand how many of the 997 cars have had IMS (intermediate shaft) failures. Although the people on this board are not necessarilly a random sampling of 997 owners I would like to see a poll to get a better sense of it.
  • Please vote only once for each 997 you own (yes or no).. you can post multiple times but only vote once
  • Please include details of your car and engine if it failed via IMS (m96 or M97) and when.
  • Please let us know if there were any mitigating factors (low oil, overheat, etc) that might've led to the failure
  • Please post only about IMS failures, this is not about RMS failures
  • Please post only for your car, no heresay or posting for a friend who doesn't frequent the board
  • Please post what was done to rectify the failure if your car failed (CPO engine, engine out of pocket, used engine, sold, insurance fire, pushed it into a river etc)
Hopefully this will help owners and soon-to-be owners get a sense of how frequently this occurs.

06 C2S, m97 motor, no problemo!

Great idea for a thread rich! If unscientific, still quite interesting and will give some idea of the range of this problem.
