It's a huge issue. In fact, Porsche had lawsuits filed against them, because they didn't do a huge recall on the 996 until too late!
see the link above. There isn't a 'simple fix' for these engines, most of these are serious issues basically because of design flaws.
again, read page 2 of here thoroughly.

"Cylinder liners can also crack, and this is something
that Autofarm has investigated in detail. The 996 engine
is quite different to those in earlier 911s, in that the
cylinder liners are cast into the two halves of the engine
block. They are made of a very hard, carbon-heavy
material called Lokasil, and are positioned in the cast and
then surrounded by molten aluminium. When the casting
cools, the liners become an integral part of the block.
Unfortunately, cracks can appear in the lining and its
surrounding aluminium. “It appears to be an issue with
the block’s torsional rigidity,” claims Nick. “All engines
twist to some extent,” he explains. “And the harder you
work them, the more they tend to distort. It’s like the wing
of an aeroplane – it visibly moves up and down as the
aircraft passes through turbulence, but if it didn’t flex it
would simply snap.”
Nine times out of ten, it’s one of the centre cylinders – two or five – and it’s always the lower edge that fails; two parallel cracks appear about 30mm across. In the worst scenario, a ‘D’ shaped chunk of liner breaks off
between these crack" etc etc

Honestly douchebag, if someone is looking at a 996 911, who would someone believe, Mr. Wannabe BMW baller who thinks he knows it all, or a Porsche specialist and mechanic and thousands of recalled engines and people who have had issues with their 996's 3.4L engine? This is again why I question your intelligence, I'm sorry I don't understand why you are still posting.

I really couldn't care what you drive, except that they are pretty shitty, because you own them, and you're worthless. You don't know what I drive, or what I do, haha so keep on with your 20 year old lot jockey lawl's LOLOL. Oh btw, I won that bet on the US-Canadian dollar dipshit, in February I made the bet when it was 80 cents and it was a high of 96 or 97 cents in August, which like I said, would make it close to par. Where's my Civic? I'll import your Lambo anytime, you know, the one you wish you could afford.
