Engine compartment blowers and other moving parts in the area of the engine
While work is in progress, hands, fingers, articles of clothing, necklaces, or long hair can become trapped by moving parts in the engine compartment, e.g., engine compartment blowers or drive belts. The engine compartment blowers are installed under the hood. After the engine is turned off, the engine temperature is monitored for around 30 minutes. Depending on the temperature, the engine compartment blowers may continue to run or may be reactivated during this period.
If you continue to operate the vehicle when a warning appears, you risk damaging the engine.
The coolant provides year-round protection against corrosion and freezing at temperatures as low as –35 °F / –37 °C (Countries with extreme cold temperatures (–40 °F / –40 °C)).
The coolant level is regularly checked as part of servicing.
Porsche recommend Glysantin® G40® or, alternatively, G12++/VW TL 774-G freeze protection agents.
Responding to warning symbols
If the coolant temperature is too high, the symbol appears on the multifunction display. If the symbol is displayed, the coolant level is too low.
Checking the coolant level and adding coolant
Swallowing Engine Coolant
Engine Coolant is hazardous to your health. Coolant can be deadly to children or pets if consumed.
Hot engine parts and hot coolant
The engine and adjacent components, the exhaust system and the coolant become very hot when the engine is running.
The coolant reservoir is pressurized. The hot coolant may suddenly escape if the coolant reservoir is not opened carefully.
