Even some of our favorite cars to own, drive, and work on, have some flaws… the Porsche 997 Turbo is not an exception.

Although an extremely well-honed weapon out of the factory in Stuttgart, after years of use it is apparent that there are a few areas where the engineers missed the mark.

Coolant Pipe Failure is where our Team of Experts will be turning their attention to during this visit.

What happens is that over time the seals between the engine block and the outlet tubes fail, eventually leading to a coolant leak. A minor drip here or there isn’t a big deal, but on a high horsepower, rear-engined car, having the possibility of putting engine coolant under the rear tires is not something we like to envision!

Our Porsche Repair Service Team considers this a must-do Maintenance item for all Porsche 997 Turbo’s.
