I just bought a 2004 996 and am reading about this IMS nightmare and am wondering if my car had the IMS replaced already or if it is something I need to worry about? My car has 75,000 and is it true that with that many miles, it should be fine? The Carfax reveals that at 15,000 miles, the dealer replaced the clutch, the front crankshaft oil seal, and event he transmission
. Maybe the IMS was replaced then as well?
JA: How many miles are on the clutch? Has it been slipping or sticking?
Customer: It is not slipping. Carfax records only show clutch was replaced at 15K miles. It seems to have bee dealer maintained. Plugs replaced at 70K, brake fluid replaced at 62K etc.
JA: What is the model of your '04 Porsche?
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I haven't tried anything so far and I would not be doing the work myself. Car seems to be running great. I was wondering if there is a way to know if I need to worry or not?
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, I think that is all.
