The rear seal, the Rear Main Seal, is one of the problem areas in the 986 engine. Although, through my research (don't have a Boxster yet, about to pull the trigger on a 2001 base), if it happens, it mostly amounts to an annoyance.

If your warranty covers seals and gaskets, then a leaking RMS would be covered. It's a somewhat costly repair, IIRC. Better to be able to have it done for your $50 deductible, than completely out of pocket!

What is the deal with the gaskets?
And what is a rear seal?
