Porsche is a stylish, recognizable, performance-vehicle that is exciting to drive on any road. To ensure that your Porsche continues to perform effectively, you must follow a strict maintenance policy. Finding the right service center to perform this maintenance is of the utmost importance.
Over time, several components in your Porsche will experience wear and tear, and that will cause them to lose their functionalities. Maintenance can help prolong the lifespan of those parts and prevent wear and tear. When planning for the maintenance for your car, an experienced Porsche mechanic will include checks of all the systems in the guide below, and more.
The importance of healthy tires in the overall performance of your Porsche cannot be overemphasized. After all, without the tires, your car becomes immobile. Hence, check the tires of your car frequently to ensure that they are in the right condition. To maintain your tires, an experienced technician will do the following:
- Constant checks of tire pressure using a tire pressure gauge and an air compressor.
- After driving long distances in your Porsche, inspect the tires for leaks and pressure drop.
- Tire rotation should be done by a Porsche specialist, usually after every 5,000
- Install quality, matching tires.
- Check tire alignment at least twice every year.
- Have the wheels of your Porsche balanced by a Porsche specialist.
The engine of your Porsche is made up of hundreds of parts that require lubrication to keep them from rubbing against each other all the time. Hence, the need for oil in the engine. The oil in the engine of your Porsche needs to be changed and refilled constantly to ensure proper lubrication of the engine. When the car’s oil is not changed routinely, the engine might experience premature wear and tear and damage several engine parts.
Our certified Porsche technicians will replace your oil with high-grade synthetic oil. Low-quality oil will also impair the functions of the engine in your Porsche.
The brakes of your Porsche are as important as the tires and engine. When you press on the brake pedal of your car, it should depress firmly and release pressure with ease. If the brakes are maintained by a certified specialist, they will continue to function efficiently. However, if the brakes are not properly maintained, you may start hearing squeaking sounds whenever you utilize the pedal.
Another way to care for your brakes is to use them with care and mild force. Expecting your brakes to stop a speeding car at constant red lights will also accelerate its wear.
Like all batteries that need recharging, the battery in your Porsche is no exception. Our technicians will ensure that all the wires and fuses connected to the battery are inspected and replaced if necessary. The weather conditions can also harm the performance of your car battery. Heat, especially during the summer, reduces the lifespan of the battery in your Porsche. Hence, we ensure that extra care is taken for the batteries during the summer.
The coolant in your Porsche is responsible for cooling the engine, since it is susceptible to overheating. If the coolant level is not checked at intervals, the engine might overheat, causing irreparable engine damage and damage to other parts of your vehicle. We always check the coolant level and change it or refill when necessary.
