Lock the car...

....When you lock the 986 it goes into “Deep Sleep” after 72 hours. This will significantly lower the battery draw.

You can test this yourself.

Lock your Boxster, then leave her for a week....

No suggestion on best path forward....

.....but typically, oil leaks never get smaller.


It will act as a great indicator, however, if there are no more drops, there is no more oil in her.

Used cars

The point about buying a used Boxster which already had the LN plug installed and the new owner not knowing about it is a very valid argument for “RTFM” not applying for the OP.

It’s a great...

That’s why....

LN magnetic torque....

....is less than the OEM plug because the magnetic part inside the outer plug body can “spin” inside the plug body if you over torque it as I explained above.

The Magnet is not aluminum. The Plug...

A couple of points here...

I have the LN magnetic drain plug.

I have put 40,000 miles and 10 oil changes on it.

Zero leaks.

I have a $400 Snap-on torque wrench and use it. Every time.

I use a new crush washer. ...

This happened to me.

It’s the “purge valve” on top of the tank, under the battery. It is a pain to get to. BUT, it can be done. Took me about an hour.

That part is #21 I believe.
