Porsche Problems

Mention the word Porsche and the words likely to come to mind are ‘quality’ and ‘performance’. Its reputation as a premier car manufacturer is known the world over and considered by many to be second to none. However, nothing is perfect and sometimes, even high quality and luxury vehicles can experience problems. At Pfaff Autoworks, we are a very reputable vehicle repair facility, and we specialize in working on high quality luxury and performance cars. In this article, we will talk about some Porsche problems that we see.

Coolant Leaks:
This is a common fault caused through corrosion. Few drivers have reported coolant leaking out the lower half of the expansion tank on older models.

Broken Head Bolts:
The Carrera 911 exhaust studs located in the cylinder heads in particular can shatter and break and need replacing after extended use of the vehicle, or the head bolts being tempered repeatedly by the heat from the engine’s exhaust system.

Tire Wear:
Some drivers have reported tire wear on Boxsters due to wheel misalignment. If tires appear more worn on the inside and outside edges rather than straight across, this is a good indicator that the car is in need of wheel alignment work.

Sunroof Problems:
Boxster owners have reported an intermittent fault with the electric roof, usually caused by excessive tampering. The roof has been known to get jammed half way up because of this.

Airbag Fault:
Few Cayenne drivers have noted that the airbag fault light flashes involuntarily. This known problem is caused by a faulty connection under the driver seat and can be easily fixed when brought to our Pfaff Autoworks Collision Center.

Clicking & Beeping Sound:
A clicking and beeping sound can sometimes come from under the dash of the car. A new instrument cluster may be needed to combat the problem but getting the issue seen by our qualified mechanics is often the best course of action.

Water Pump:
Few drivers of the Porsche Cayman have mentioned a leaky or faulty water pump. It creates a distracting noise to the driver and can only be remedied by a replacement of the part.
