Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Porsche 911 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 79000 miles
Ok car has been in garages for the last 7 months due to accident where it slide off road and landed on a man hole inside the rear passenger wheel. It destroyed the under shields and busted the front radiator. Well 7 months later when I go to move the car, its making a squilling noise, like its not getting any oil. The oil pressure gauge isnt even moving. The porsche dealership is looking into, sad the oil pump isnt pumping and they didnt know why. They pulled the oil pan off and it was full of metal shaving, she stated it looked like the gravel in the bottom of a fish aquarium. They said it wasnt uncommon for the intermediate shaft to break or soemthing and was probably the problem; stating complete engine rebuild. The insurance company is reevaluating, but has so far denied paying for any more on this. Thing is when the car went in the mechanics doing the original work (place is major bmw dealer in raleigh nc, over 150 miles from me) replaced the radiators and noted no other additional problems. Why all of a sudden or what could cause this no oil pressure or oil pumping problem from the accident. Please help.
