1/13/2010 7:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Wahlberg was in a bit of a tow jam last night -- when his pricey Porsche sprung a leak in front of Madeo.

The former Funky Bunch frontman ran inside to get some take-out when his ride started spilling oil -- and had to be towed away for repairs.

This is slick.

Looks like a minor HAZMAT situation. Did the local jiffy lube not put the drain plug back in tight enough?

That's considred a HAZ-MAT spill, and I hope that he gets billed accordingly for it by the Fire Dept. and the City.

Does he even know how to maintain a car or does he have a "great" mechanic?

Hmm, my 1992 Toyota has never sprung an oil leak, and I only paid $2,000 for it. Go figure.

Those are excellent cars. If you had to spend 10 G's to restore your's, you had a much older model. Those cars come with bumper to bumper warranty. They even cover replacing the battery if it goes dead (which it will if you don't use the car alot, due to the electrical circuit that still uses the battery).

Looks like someone screwed up after having done routine maintenance. Ouch!!

That german junk is for guys who like thrust in the rear.
I've had my Mitsubishi for 11 years and it's never oozed anything but suburban sex appeal.

You guys are funny... Toyota's and Mitsu's are great cars, but comparing them to a Porsche is irrelevant... these cars are designed for different purposes.

From that amount of oil spewing from an M96 motor, the most likely cause would be the failure of the intermediate shaft bearing. Being a 996 MKII, it likely is off warranty and Mark will be shelling out about 11K for a remanufactured motor.

Something doesn't look right. #1, The oil is black as hell. #2, look at the second picture, the oil isn't in a gigantic puddle, it almost looks like a perfect black square. weird.
