Engine Cooling & Routine Coolant Fluid Exchange Maintenance 101
Every Porsche model equipped with a combustion engine also comes equipped with an engine cooling system. The heart of engine cooling is the water pump that circulates the lifeblood of the engine cooling system – coolant fluid – through engine passages collecting excessive heat and releasing the heat away from the engine at the radiator.
The engine’s extreme heat, fluctuating ambient temperatures, and with the engine cooling system prone to leaks, coolant fluid will eventually break down, leak, or get contaminated that ultimately reduces its ability to absorb heat and keep the engine cool.
What are the Warnings of Defective Coolant?
If you’ve experienced any of these warnings that your engine is running with defective coolant, it is critical to respond swiftly with service to correct the problem before the engine is at risk for overheating and the vehicle is immobilized:
- Dashboard warning light
- Coolant found low and requires repeated topping off
- Coolant found leaking, usually puddled under the car toward the front of the engine
- Engine runs hotter than normal
- Engine overheats
If you’ve experienced any of the warning signs of defective coolant or if the engine has been running hotter than usual, we invite you to Porsche Owings Mills for a coolant fluid inspection and exchange service as needed.
