Porsche ProblemsAlarm/remote entry problems due to accumulated water in electronic control units
Over time, the engine can leak oil at various locations. Early-production vehicles require engine disassembly and modification to resolve leaks at the cylinder heads, oil return tubes, valve covers, timing cover, chain housings, case through bolts, and lines to/from the oil cooler.
Various fuel trim and oxygen sensor limit fault codes can be traced to an internal vacuum leak at the oil separator.
Porsche QuestionsI had to jump my dead battery. Now when the car is running, my a/c doesn't blow. (2 answers)
A/c does blow when the key is on but not started. This is also the same with the windshield wipers.
I noticed a scratch on my headlight that is about 2 inches long and Maybe 2 mm deep, is there anyway I can fix it myself without ruining the quality of the whole headlight?
Porsche RecallsBrake Pedal Separates
The brake pedal pivot pin may become dislodged, resulting in the brake pedal separating from the pedal arm. Dealers will inspect the brake pedal assembly clip and install a replacement clip if one is missing free of charge to resolve the concern.
The fuel injection system uses tubes called fuel rails to get the fuel to the fuel injectors. These fuel rails can leak. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel rails to correct this concern.
The front and rear axles may not be aligned properly, and fasteners may not be tightened to the proper torque level. Dealers will perform a front and rear suspension alignment free of charge to resolve the concern.
