What are the Most Common Porsche Problems?

While the Porsche is a beautiful vehicle, there are common issues that it can have. If you plan to buy one, you will want to know what those issues are so you can watch for them. It's also a good idea to have a repair shop on your speed dial for when things do pop up. Here are some of the issues this type of vehicle often has.

Cooling Problems

The pipe sealing around the coolant distribution system in the Porsche can cause leaks. You may not see the leaks on your garage floor, either, because it might puddle on the engine between the cylinders. You will want the cooling system checked when you get regular maintenance to ward something worse off. Also watch for wet carpet in the trunk, which could be a sign of a leak.

Engine Issues

If you see smoke coming from your engine, it's really never a good sign. If you overfill the oil, which can happen if you don't use an experienced Porsche technician, the engine might need a total rebuild. The oil separator could also be faulty. Watch for a puff of smoke in the exhaust so you can head off engine issues before they are dire. Retaining hardware can also fail and you will need bearing services.

Steering & Suspension Problems

If you notice the ABS warning light on your Porsche, it might be because there is a problem in the steering or suspension. It's important for service technicians to look for tears and cracks that could cause the light to illuminate.

Transmission Issues

The synchros can wear out in these vehicles, which could cause you to have trouble getting the car into gear. Service the transmission at regular intervals to avoid these types of issues.

Buying a vehicle like a Porsche won't help you to avoid the repair shop. And it's wise to know some of the common problems so you can ward them off with regular maintenance. If you have a Porsche and it needs service, give our repair shop a call and our professionals will be happy to help.
