Porsche 993 oil sounds

Hi..i have a question if somebody experienced this.I have not seen the car yet but what my friend is describing is...
When the car is either cold or warm he can hear oil traveling on the right side through the oil lines....or is it just in the oil tank?
thanx

ivan

You hear it usually when the car is cold, and has not been driven for a while. Just oil being circulated to the engine.

The oil tanks in 964 and 993 are in the left corner just behind the rear seating area bulkhead, fluid noise is easily transmitted from there into the cabin

Confused ?
Open the engine lid .
Oil cap and filter is on right-hand side .
What you don’t see is oil tank in front of rear wheel , thermostat below it at “ground level” and pipes running through sill-cover to front of car .
Oil travels down this side of car to oil-cooler in front of front wheel (other places too depending on spec)

Hi Boys..today i have seen the 993 with the oil noise...very strange..i know there is a movement but this one is like pouring oil trough small funnel-glo glo glo ..I have a feeling somebody has removed the oil thermostat on this 993.I will have the car in couple of weeks ..i will investigate further then i report..

What filter is on it ?
Only use a genuine filter (Mahle oc 54)

It would be a Quick , cheap , and easy repair if all it took was a filter change and check the oil level isn’t to high when hot ..........

I use a fluke , but a $15 harbor freight ir thermometer will work to check oil heat from stat to cooler , then see fan kick in and cool it back down ....

Bad news for us 964/993 guys is the small temp sensor in oil cooler is nla .
Good news is the fan isn’t that noisy and an open circuit to sensor just runs it high permanently.
Can fit a switch , or just unplug it for permanent operation.

This may be old news , but I only just found out this week when I went to order new parts for this weekends oil cooler project ..

Hi Ian..i will have the car to work on in couple of weeks.The story is this guy went to some mechanic and they either repair his transs. or even exchange it for a different one..that is another story i have to follow...Somebody else did an oil change and did not even replace the long filter under the fender..so thanx for the heads up i will look what the heck they did ..the oil is very noise.
On the other hand i think the trans and all the other part have factory sticker and laser imprint with a part number am i wrong.
I want to find out if he has an original trany or not..?

Ivan

just remembered it is on the bottom of the trans....
