orange fluid on ground front drivers side

Recommended Posts

Quick question I found some orange fluid under my car front driver side on 2002 911 turbo. I smelt it and it didn't smell like much. felt a little bit greesy but not real geesy. didn't smell like antifreeze or anything. there were 2 circles about 2 inches each. should I be worried?

Orange fluid, a little bit greasy sounds like Porsche coolant.

Your description of the location of the tiny puddles is consistent with driver's side radiator or the hoses and clamps leading to and from the radiator.

If you don't want to take off the bumper cover, look through the grille or take off the driver's side fender liner to get a better look.

BTW, removing and replacing the front bumper cover is very straightforward, as long as you are careful not to scratch the paint when you put the bumper cover aside, etc...

Regards, Maurice.

I had the same problem. I pulled the wheel well liner out and found a drip at the bottom hose. Believe it or not, I wiggled the hose and it never leaked again! I ordered a new hose, but never saw the need to put it on. The fitting has an O ring and I must have seated it. Try wiggling, it can't hurt!
