Hi Folks, long time no post. Been too busy at work to spend as much time as I'd like on the forums, and the car had been trouble-free up 'til now. I noticed over the last few weeks (months? I've not been driving the car much, especially with the cold weather) that my 2006 Cayman S seemed to be consuming a bit more oil than it should, but I wasn't 100% on that as I had been only driving it either at AutoX or running it at pace through the mountains, where I expect a bit of oil loss. In any case, after topping it off recently and then going for a drive, it just seemed to be beyond the acceptable amount used, so I took it to my local indy Porsche shop, who have cared for it most of the time I have owned it. Just heard back from the shop: the Air Oil Seperator has failed. Again. Truth be told, I was fearing something worse, as I first replaced the AOS sometime in early 2013 at around 85K miles. The car has 100K now, which is why I didn't think that part would have failed again. As Porsche repairs go, it is relatively inexpensive, but it seems unreasonable that a car which isn't tracked or subjected to driving stress beyond a few AutoX events each year or a mountain run would need another AOS so soon. But there it is.
