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)
