      Also don't forget insurance costs. Porsche and 22 y/o can't be cheap.

      The C5 4.2 is different than the B6 4.2 and has a belt. The motor is turned 'backwards' to fit in the A4 and uses a chain to make the motor short enough to fit

      Re: your time question - Just as a reference point, all the cars I've encountered with 10K+ mile service intervals (M-B, Porsche, etc) typically put a 1-year maximum between oil changes.

      Mine did the same thing a couple times before I changed to the green coolant temp sensor. Also, check that your fans are working properly (do they come on with the A/C?)

      Check that your cooling fans work (let the car idle with the A/C on and see if they're running on low speed) - this goes along with the fuse suggestion above.
