997.1 Running a bit hot


Recommended Posts

Hello ALL-

I had my water pump replaced approximately 2 years ago with an OEM pump, after topping off my car with coolant the water temp now goes a bit past the standard 12PM position, I did not burp it, can this cause the slight over heating issue?

Could someone lend a bit more advice on how exactly to use the "burp top" that is located over the fill hole.

Thanks!!!

Interesting but I don't have a burp top hole in my 997.1. I burp by raising the rear when the motor is cold and open the tank. If not already done, I would Check the intakes for debrees and vacuum the rads. Have you checked that the front cooling fans are working on both sides? Stick your hand in the front of the front wheel wells to feel if air is going through when hot. If one of them is not working (you will not necessarily get a dash error code) you may have an electrical issue (do a search here-lots of info available) or you may just have a small stone stuck between the fan and shroud. Turn the steering wheel to the opposite side and carefully use a long thin screwdriver to turn the fan blade counterclockwise which may release the stone if it is there - personal experience. Or, it could be the thermostat which is easy to change.

Could very well be trapped air. Burp valve needs to be openned before the cooling system reaches normal op temp. link below outlines air bleeding proceedure.
