Do You/Should You Lose Any Coolant?
Not talking about getting the low coolant warning every month or so which obviously is some type of leak.
How many of you notice the level decrease & must be topped off to be at the Max line.
Also, if you top it off yourself, what do you use & where do you purchase it?
Mine usually sits ˝ way between Max & Min right on that thick seam.
Every time my car is into Porsche service for oil change or warranty work they top it off back to Max.
The next time I check, whether a few weeks or months later, it is always back to that thick seam again.
IDK if I did nothing for a year if I would actually get to MIN or below, & get the warning.
I stopped by Porsche & asked the service tech about that & he said, despite what you read on various forums about the system being a closed system & should never lose any coolant…that is NOT his experience. He says he has to top off virtually every Macan’s coolant. Says it is normal.
If there was a leak would probably see it around the cap or the overflow container.
I think a coolant leak can be anywhere in the coolant system. Including places not visible by just opening the hood & looking at the overflow reservoir.
I want them to check for leaks & do a pressure test when I bring it in for an oil change but, think they may not, given these symptoms. They may just say they see no sign of a coolant leak when they remove belly pan to do the oil/filter change. I doubt they would tell me they did a pressure test, if they did not but, IDK.
So does your coolant level stay @ Max?
Maybe we can have a poll?
