Thanks for the answer , ill check the oil level tonight , since i need to drain some oil , ill take a picture of the components and send them to you , ill send them to you tomorrow
yes the 3rd componet is the drain plug , i drained the oil , i calculated. 9.5 qts , still nothing on the dipstick , drove the car oil light still on added1qt still nothing on dipstick along with the oil light another red light came on it looks like an explanation mark ( ! ) what is going on here? I feel like draining all the oil out and start over , what do you suggest i do ? I dont want to harm the engine
Im not a mechanic , im a machinist i do have tools to do this , is this a big job ? How hard of a job is this ? Scale of 1 - 10 ? Should i look for a porsche mechanic ? I've had the car for 7 months , i love this car ! I dont want to mess anything up , what do you think i should do ?
Ok , thank you for your help , im gonna call around for a porsche mechanic near my house , tried to save a little money doing my own oil change , ending up spending more money , lesson learned
Do i check the oil level with engine idling ? Ive always checked when engine not running from my past experience , but this is my 1st porsche , just want to cover all bases
Found out it was not the oil drain plug i took off , it was the oil pressure relief plug ! Got it all together now thanks for your help
