The 1991 Porsche has a sump pump located on the passenger side of the car. The dipstick is close to the oil filter in the engine bay but it is difficult to read proper levels so the oil indicator is good back up. This indicator is accurate when the engine is idling, in the normal temperature range and the car is level. It sounds like the engine is low on oil. Check the oil indicator gauge, the one on the left side close to the ignition switch. The gauge is more reliable for oil level than the oil dipstick. The 1990-1994 (Could be others) hold about 13 U.S. quarts of oil. Most changes use 10.5 quarts since there are several drain plugs. That's why many people use only a Porsche mechanic. Note oil level is read only when car is running because of the sump system. Overfilling causes overfill oil to burn off AFTER the car is warm. ALSO if the 911/964 or 993 sits unstarted for more than 10 to 14 days the oil will accumulate in the exhaust side of the engine and will have to burn off with extensive amounts of smoke coming out looks like a huge smoke cloud. Will take several start ups before the oil is burned off from inside the system. So close the windows and wear a high quality respirator mask with cartridges or you will be inhaling way too many fumes. Mobil 1 synthetic is the manufacturer recommended oil brand.

1990 Porsche C2 Tiptronic your tip idiot light just went on and when you move it to manual mode it doesnt light up Is this an electrical or mechanical problem?

I have exactly this problem with a 93 C2. It coincided with an immobilizer problem - having disconnected the immobilizer I find the tiptronic warning light is lit and not only does manual not work but the supposed "4th gear default" described in the handbook seems to make the engine rev very high. It's sitting in a repair shop this morning so I hope I'll know later...
