Leak 06 987S
Paralizer - 1 month ago
Looking for some thoughts on a leak I've developed. I thought it might be the RMS, but now I'm not so sure. The car is parked for days at a time now. If I check under the car after it's been parked, there is no fluid. But after I start it and pull out of the garage I'll notice a short, approximate 1-2 foot thin trail of fluid. It seems to be water with a little oil mixed in. I'd say it's coming more from the mid drivers side of the car. Any thoughts on this? Oh the car has 150k miles. Thanks in advance.

Sounds like water from the A/C which collects in the pan until it's full or you move the vehicle.
The oil part could be A/C compressor oil. How's the A/C?
Happy Boxstering,

Thanks for the prompt response Pedro. I haven't noticed any problems with the AC when I use it. The car does sit for as much as a week at a time these days. I haven't noticed any increase in oil use.
