TONY WALTERSSimon, With my car bought new in March 2017 I had coolant warning light come on after engine had warmed up one day in Jan 2020 so about same relative age as yours. Letting engine cool down, the light didn’t come on until I had done a further 2 miles which enabled me to get home. Coolant level was by then slightly down. Car was recovered to Porsche Guildford who diagnosed a leaking solenoid switch. In my case leak was into a vacuum pipe and so not noticeable externally. However that still meant a quite extensive strip down to get to the solenoid (one of 7 or 8 I believe) I am sorry to say. As car was in warrantee I decided it was trying to tell me something so extended the warranted 2 months later in the March! Wishing you all the best with yours. It will be very useful to hear what is found. Regards. Tony.
Dave jonesMy water pump leaked from cold only a few drips then stopped when normal operating tempwas reached had it replaced under warranty .. seems to be a problem with most of the 991.2 s
MartinPHi Simon, I bought my car new (991.2 GTS) in July 2017 so it went in for a major service last month.The technician reported " signs of coolant pump leaking and droplets of coolant on lower pipe".This resulted in the replacement of the coolant pump (leaking). I hadn't seen any alarms but from what I have been reading I guess they knew to look out for this. I extended the warranty last year so the repair (about £1,700 I seem to recall) was covered by this. No mention of solenoids, valve block or any other implications. Cheers, Martin
Peter_BullThe USA is their largest market and they Porsche will not upset their NA customers for fear of class action. We (UK) have always been treated differently I fear that nothing will change. Really sorry to hear of your troubles and I hope you manage to get some goodwill from Porsche UK.
GregC1Is purple liquid coolant leaking from the rear of my Targa? I haven’t had a warning light come on yet .
GregC1Thanks for the reply , it’s now at Wolverhampton Porsche to have the water pump looked at 👍
