Does Your Car Need First Aid?

Nothing makes the blood of a car owner run cold quite like seeing a “check engine” light or something feeling “off” about their beloved Porsche.  If you’re worried that you need Porsche repair Laguna Niguel has several service options available.  However, with a high-performance vehicle like a Porsche it’s worthwhile to choose a repair shop that can boast professionals with specialized education and experience.  Here are some of the most common issues that might require Porsche repair:

  1. Oil Leaks

If you suspect a problem with your oil pressure, you need to get it checked out right away.  Leaks are often detected when you begin to notice a smell of burning oil when you run your vehicle or notice a puddle of fluid under your car, and they can be quite dangerous for your engine.  While many leaks are found around valve cover gaskets and spark plug seals, you can also have a potentially serious leak in the rear main seal.  To protect your clutch and the integrity of your engine, seek service immediately if you suspect an oil leak.

 

  1. Battery Issues

Did you know that even a parked car continues to use some battery power?  As a high-performance vehicle, a Porsche can use more battery while parked than many other vehicles.  If you don’t drive your Porsche regularly, you may find that you’re dealing with dead batteries much of the time.  The solution to this is often simple–if you intend to go more than two weeks without driving your Porsche, use a battery maintainer.  If, however, this still doesn’t resolve your problem, your battery may need to be replaced, or you may have other electrical issues.  It’s best to bring the car in to the service center for evaluation.

 

  1. Check Engine Light

If you’ve got the dreaded “check engine” light on your dashboard, you may be hoping that you can diagnose what’s wrong with your vehicle yourself.  Unfortunately, there’s not a good way to tell what is causing the light without a thorough inspection of your engine.  Your problem could be anything from issues with the radiator to a failure in the O2 and MAF systems.  If you don’t know the signs and symptoms of both of these–and multiple other possible issues–your best, most efficient, and most cost-effective course of action is to take the car to a qualified service professional for evaluation.
