Common Porsche Faults and Repairs
Common problem: Porsche IMS (Intermediate Shaft) bearing
Symptoms: A constant rumble or rough noise from the bottom of the engine, sometimes accompanied by engine oil leaking.
Why the problem occurs: Running centrally within the Porsche flat six engine is an Intermediate Shaft (IMS) which simultaneously drives both of the engines timing chains. This IMS Shaft is mounted via a sealed roller bearing which over time deteriorates, potentially with catastrophic consequences for the engine.
Solution: With the vehicle transmission removed, the IMS bearing can be extracted using specialist equipment, and replaced using original parts or upgraded solutions to prevent further occurrence.
