Porsche Service & Repair
Porsche automobiles require scheduled maintenance work and sometimes need to be repaired. In many instances the decision to do preventative maintenance service can prove to be less expensive than the cost of repairs for inevitable mechanical failures. We can complete anything on you Porsche maintenance schedule or complete any Porsche repair service that you require.
Routine porsche Maintenance
Routine maintenance can be of a proactive nature; however it usually includes taking care of replacing minor items that have failed. Most routine maintenance work is relatively inexpensive and can be done without a shop needing to keep your car for several days. Although routine Porsche maintenance items may seem trivial it is important to pay attention to the needs of your vehicle. A good Porsche repair shop will use only the fluids or parts that are recommended for your Porsche model vehicle. Additionally your chosen Porsche repair shop understands the proper procedures for routine maintenance tasks. Having a good Porsche repair facility that follows Porsche’s maintenance guidelines and dealership maintenance procedures is your assurance of getting the highest level of Porsche car care.
If you have owned a Porsche car for any time at all you should be familiar with the common routine maintenance items. Routine maintenance work includes items that you do fairly often. The most common routine maintenance services are:
porsche Brake Jobs
Porsche brake repair is perhaps one of the most important services that you can have done to your vehicle. Car brake systems are fairly complex due to added safety features such as ABS sensors and brake pad wear sensors. Unlike car brakes of years past Porsche owners have options in standard OEM brake parts and high performance brake parts. A basic brake job can be done with ceramic brake pads, a new wear sensor, bleeding brakes and visual inspection of brake components. A major Porsche brake job will entail replacing pads, wear sensors, rotors which can be solid, drilled or slotted, and sometimes replacing or rebuilding brake calipers.
porsche Oil and Filter Changes
Oil changes are extremely important for protecting vital internal engine parts and getting the most years from your cars engine. Proper lubrication of your engine assures optimal engine operating temperatures, minimal wear on internal parts and substantially reduces the chances for premature engine failure. Cars that are properly maintained, especially with frequent oil changes, quite commonly run for over 350,000 miles. A Porsche passenger vehicle or SAV oil change requires synthetic motor oils such as Mobil 1, Kendall GT-1 liquid titanium, Castrol Syntec, Havoline Ultra or Fuchs. The weather conditions in your area will drive your choices for the best SAE grade for your vehicle. You should consult a Porsche repair shop or your owners manual for your specific oil change requirements.
porsche Coolant Flush and Fill Services
Maintaining your Porsche cooling system is unbelievably important. A cooling system failure can lead to warped heads or a total engine seizure which is thousands of dollars to repair. A routine cooling system service is to flush and fill your radiator with only Porsche approved engine coolant. As part of the coolant service your repair shop will inspect your radiator, radiator hoses, heater hoses, expansion tank reservoir and cap for signs of any problems.
Minor Routine BMW Repairs
A car owner will periodically need to address minor parts that have failed or worn beyond their useful life. Common routine repairs include safety related work such as replacing wiper blades or burned out light bulbs for headlights, brake lights, tail lights and turn signals. Some items are more convenience or comfort related such as replacing cabin air filters, charging air conditioning systems and cleaning leather seats and carpet. It’s highly recommended to be proactive in changing drive belts and radiator hoses that often fail under normal driving conditions.
Preventative Scheduled Maintenance
Your Porsche owner’s manual includes the preventative and scheduled maintenance services needed for your particular model. While many of the items listed seem insignificant they are recommended for your safety and to protect the investment you have made in a fine Porsche automobile. Doing timely maintenance will prove to be much cheaper than Porsche repair work.
For most any Porsche over a few YEARS OLD you need to plan on replacing your fuel filter, engine drive belts, timing belt, tensioner pulley and a few other items. Other scheduled services include valve adjustments, changing differential fluid, changing transmission fluid, and general safety checks. As with any Porsche you need to stay on top of cooling system overhauls to replace your radiator, upper and lower radiator hoses, expansion tank, thermostat housing, bleeder screw, coolant level sending unit, coolant temperature sensor, thermostat and gasket, water pump and gasket, and always use a high quality coolant.
