leaking. If any of the hoses appear to be damaged or are leaking, just bring your Porsche over to
our Sacramento Porsche repair shop to have it inspected.
If lately you have noticed shrieking noises coming from your engine, especially when pressing
the gas pedal, there is a possibility that one of the belts is loose. You can also check for loose
belts by testing the tension of them. It is important to have the loose belts replaced because a
broken belt can lead to a costly repair.
Checking your engine for leaks can help diagnose any possible problems before something
serious happens. You may spot fluid leaking from a hose or from something else. When
checking the engine for leaks, make sure to use a flashlight and look on top of the engine and
underneath it. If you notice any wet spots on the ground, place a piece of cardboard underneath
the car to see if there is any fluid on it the next day. If there is, you should bring it in for service.
