massive coolant leak


Recommended Posts

helpI was driving my 99 996 C2 this morning and ran a couple errands. I went to get gas and noticed coolant dripping heavily out of the drivers side rear. The leak is near the back of the motor just near the cat (See attatched Picture.)

I got no CEL or any other warnings. No power loss or anything else. I was very near my home so I drove it back to my house. Temp gauge was fine on the way home.

Any ideas on what could have happened before I tow it to the mechanic on Monday? A coolant hose? The engine is still too hot for me to even get under the car to take a look..

Thanks in advance.

I was looking in my manual and it said to use only "Porsche approved coolants" . Which coolants are "Porsche approved"?

Thanks
