Question 981 GTS AX Low Oil warning

Hi,

I am looking for anyone with AX experience with a Cayman GTS.

I consistently get a low oil warning after a few runs.

Then, after the car sits between sessions the oil level goes back to Green (middle of the oil measurement screen.)

Thanks

Hey,

Have never experienced that in any autocross event in my car. 2016 CGTS (6MT/X73). Always figured it would be safe from that at an autocross...no sustained g forces like the track?

For reference, have done 100+ runs in my car, and it is bone stock (down to the factory Pirellis)

Thanks, my 16 CGTS PDK is bone stock also - new tires (Michelin PS4S).

- very strange. ...

Is it actually using oil? Or just sloshing around?

Throw another 1/4 quart in there and see what happens. Maybe the electric pump(s) are pumping it up to the engine and when it sees that it is touching the low sensor, it throws the warning. Maybe it just needs a smidge more oil for the more extreme conditions.

I keep my tracked GT4 oil level to max or above. The GT4 Clubsport apparently has rigged the oil level gage to show full when it actually is about a liter overfilled.
