If we're talking about the timing chain cover, the issue is not one of a design flaw, rather one ofIt is not warranty but goodwill since the TC has a design flaw.
Did you use a new O-ring on the filter housing? Was the O-ring put on properly? Did you over or under torque the oil filter housing when you reinstalled it? Did you add the correct amount of oil? Any of these could be the cause of the leaking.Hello,
I Have a macan with 3,0 tdi engine,
After i change the engine oil and filter it has leaking oil a LOT on the right side of the engine..
I change the oil filter cover but the oil is still leaking..
Help me Please
here we go, 6 hour job, interesting. Wonder how they know it doesn't have a broken bolt which has been the issue. That s an engine out job. No 6 hours. More info.Similar story to Paul...
42,000 miles. 2016 Macan S. Went to independent shop for oil change, they said there's an oil leak, possibly from the turbochargers. Took to dealer, confirmed that it's the timing cover, and that it's a 6 hour job (@ $205/hr) though thankfully should be covered by warranty which is about to run out.
And there are two similar but different Orings available This may have since been resolved, but a while back some dealers and aftermarket parts suppliers were selling the wrong ones.
That was my issue, the oil leak ended up being just the wrong o-ring that was installed by the dealer i bought the car from and was not installed properly and it eventually caused a leak.
My Indy in Greenfield, MA has estimated $5K for the timing cover gasket replacement. I reached out PCNA via web and phone re goodwill. No response from either channel thus far.
There are also metal crush gaskets. The sealant is used as well as the gaskets.It looks to me as though sealant is used, rather than a gasket. Further, if the timing chain cover is leaking the
root cause is likely the fracture of one or more timing chain cover Torx bolts that were over-torqued when the
engine was assembled in Leipzig. This is a known issue with Macan models, affecting a small percentage.
The Porsche approved resolution involves an engine out procedure affecting lubrication, cooling and A/C systems.
You really do want some goodwill from PCNA and/or your local Porsche dealer.
