Smoke from one pipe is fine. As for the leaks - have you removed the bottom engine cover? It acts like a sponge.
Good news is I have an extended warranty for 2 years. Has 60k miles on it but NOT through CPO. Have an appointment on Thursday.Aside from the fault codes (which is kinda like saying, "So, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?"), isn't it normal upon startup to only see smoke from one side of the tailpipes?
In any event, that def sucks. How many miles did it have on it when you purchased it? Is it CPO? Do you have any extended warranty? If so, def dealer. If not, indy shop.
was a crack in a small hose around the intake. They’re trying to find a replacement for me but I’m very relieved. Thanks to you and everyone else in the thread for your help! and Sorry for the freak out. This is my first expensive car and first Porsche lolSeriously doubt it's your head gasket, most are of a MLS design now which is multi-layered steel and are pretty resilient. But I suspect you still have a leak somewhere. Careful with aluminum engines, you need to use the correct coolant and distilled water. Aluminum will corrode if the PH level of the coolest is too acidic.
I remember reading a BMW tech issue where the new 2017-current 6 cylinder engine with the intercooler that is built into the intake pipe near the throttle body has a tendency to have missing coolant. I know you have a Macan but it may just be doing the same thing.
You can look around your engine and search for plastic coolant parts that may a hairline crack. Usually there is some white residue around the leak.
Thanks! I don’t have kids so that’s my baby basically. Amazing dogs. She just turned 8 and still acts like the puppy I held at 8 weeks old.Glad to hear that it wasn’t anything serious. Also wanted to say that your profile picture is awesome. I debated between our Samoyed and my Macan. You are making me rethink my decision. Best of luck.
Yeah it’s not in stock so they’re calling other dealerships around Ontario for meGlad you are getting it fixed under warranty. No need to apologize. This is what this forum is for.
Did you take it to a Porsche dealer for repair?
The reason I ask is bc you said:"They’re trying to find a replacement for me "
Porsche would not "try" they would simply obtain the correct part & fix it. You may have to wait, if not in stock.
When under warranty, either manufacturer or 3rd party, you s/b able to repair at the shop of your choice.
