Hello fellow fellow Porsche and Cayman lovers.
Over the years my 06 Cayman S has been the most wonderful driving experience ever, minus the fact that it is a little bit underpowered as I had a supped up Twin Turbo Z in the past with serious power, but regardless it has been very reliable until this happened.
I was driving to work yesterday, I was going pretty fast until I hit a stop and go spot. That's where I started hearing a loud screeching noise coming from the engine bay. It was kind of embarrassing while sitting in traffic. When the car picked up speed the sound disappeared, and when I put it in neutral at highway speed the screeching would come back.
This sound is exactly like a loose drive belt that you hear on a normal car when cold that goes away when the car warms up. Since I did replace my drive belt and spark plugs + coils a year ago, I thought maybe it was just loose and I was starting to plan to tighten it.
I park the car at work, come back 10 hours later, start the car and a big cloud of white smoke comes out from the exhaust !! That's when I realized I had a bigger problem !! The smoke goes away and does not come back unless I leave the car in idle for a few minutes and push on the gas to see some white smoke coming out !!
The car drives fine with no signs of the problem other than that the RPM jumps to 2000 when I come to a stop and goes down to sit higher than normal at 900-1000 !!
I get home let it sleep, check the oil next day in the morning, and it was unusually down to the middle mark, I put oil and start the car and it seems to idle normally this time!!
What do you guys think the problem is !? I know this does not look cheap to fix !!
Thanks a bunch
