I noticed a hair line crack in one of my wheels during a track day last year. I had my original set of wheels and tires in my truck (I trailer my 996 in case I break it, so I have a ride home) so I...

The eventual failure rate of ball bearings is 100%. Bore scoring is also an eventual failure mode in the M96 and M97 engines. The 9A1 engines were the first DFI (direct fuel injection) engines, and...

Fair enough. I see your logic on doing the AOS. However, I don't think the term "penny wise, pound foolish" is applicable in this case! If the OP performed all the additional preventative maintenance...

I would like an 09 with the F1 gearbox. Not sure about the cost of maintenance though.

Recognizing that some of the items that have been listed can be replaced with the engine in the car, I would inspect these items, but not necessarily replace. As part of the inspection, I would drop...

If you are thinking about a 997.1, I suggest reading up on those. In summary, some of the 2005 model cars came with the small single row IMSB M96 engine. The late 2005 through 2008 came with the...

I had never made contact with a deer despite living in Georgia and South Carolina the past 38 years. A week ago, I drove the 996 to the house and safely tucked it away in my garage. I hopped in my...

This was the outcome many if us expected.

The engine will not hold up with that "repair". In my opinion, the best course at this point is to sell the 996 "as is" and disclose the history to...

The rod bearings typically go first. With that level of particulates in the oil, the mains probably got trash in them and there is likely some level of bore scoring. Rebuilding the current engine...

I liked the episode. What I found most interesting is that it was a MY2000 and it had the small single row IMSB. MY2000 was a transition year and I assumed the vast majority had the larger duel row.

Having the original parts is a huge plus. All of your mods are bolt on. I personally like the mods, except the wheels being black. Just too much black for me. I think 24k would be a strong price, in...

Bill said he hydrolocked it on the starter. The starter can produce a lot of torque, especially the way it's geared, but I am hopeful for bill that it didn't bend the rod.

The person who sold me my 996 replaced it with an S4. He took me for a ride in it. It was quick and felt comfortable. They are expensive new, in my opinion. He bought his off-lease.

Yes, the leak was at the fitting. It was noticable because the hard pipe below became wet and you could see liquid at the fitting, like yours.

The good news is that if it hydrolocked on the starter, there shouldn't be any damage. Definitely remove the plugs before attempting to turn over again.
