The common coolant pipe issue seems to only affect the V8 Cayenne's. I'm wondering if my coolant leak is a common problem too. I've been losing coolant on my 3.6 V6 Cayenne at a fairly slow rate compared to the other more common issue. I'm having to top it off about once every month or two. Last weekend I was changing the oil and started investigating the leak. It looks to be coming from a black plastic coolant hose fitting on the back of the engine, passenger side.

 

Has anyone seen this problem before? I'm wondering if there is just a bad o-ring behind that fitting or if the whole part needs to be replaced. And if anyone knows the part number for this I would greatly appreciate that too!


Thanks

I've had the same problem in my 2008 v6. After removing the 2 bolts I saw it had a rubber gasket. Waiting for the dealership to call me when it comes in. (Was the cheapest there)
It's technically for the thermostat. It's called a flange socket and sealing ring. Here's the part #'s 95510623100 Flange Socket
95510643100 Sealing Ring

Thanks for the PN! Doesn't look very expensive, my local dealership has it for $26 and the o-ring is less than $2.

 

I think the thermostat is on the back of the 3.2 V6 but for the 3.6 V6 the thermostat is on the side of the engine (driver side). I know this because I replaced it during my cooling system refresh at 90k miles. However, there does seem to be a housing for something back there, I'm just not sure what it is..

I thought so too but when I pulled up the diagram it was listed under :

Interesting. When I did the cooling system refresh I replaced the water pump (front of engine) and thermostat (side of engine) so that confuses the hell out of me why they would call that a water pump thermostat housing if neither of those components are back there.

 

Was it a fairly straight forward job? Doesn't look like I would have to remove much to get to it. I may take some pictures and make a DIY for the job.

Yeah it was an easy job. All I did was remove the plastic covers on the passenger side of the engine bay, the exhaust shield is held with one bolt that, once removed, will pull off the clips it holds onto in the bottom. From there I just felt the two bolts (one on top one on bottom) of the plastic flange, if I'm not mistaken they are both either 12mm or 13mm.

Thanks to Mr. Flips post with part #s. I was able to fix mine.  Real easy, just be sure to "seat" the 30 torx bit into bolts, the are somewhat hard to reach and seem soft metal. 

 

Approximately 2 cups of coolant came out that I captured with a bowl then returned it after the job was done. (DO NOT remove coolant cap during process; coolant is under pressure and more will come out).

 

Before and after pics.

Hi, does anyone know if the 3.6 twin turbo engine is the same? I just found a coolant drip in my 2015 CayenneS. Is it easier to get to from the top or bottom? I tried to find it, but couldn't see it. Here is a pic of the leak location that I took while under the car.  I'm freaking out a bit because I bought the car 2 weeks ago, just hit 99k.

      I have a 2009 957 3.6l v6 Cayenne. The battery was dead a few days ago so I replaced it. It now starts up just as it should but when run a diagnostic it says the alternator voltage is high reading 14.72. I’m assuming I need to replace the alternator to remedy this. I can’t find any information about replacing the alternator. Has anyone attempted this? It looks like it might be straightforward  but my concern is whether or not the intake manifold has to be removed in order to get clear access. If anyone has any insight on this I would greatly appreciate it.

      The red light on the coolant temperature gauge of my car occasionally (but in recent times more frequently) flashes slowly (0.5 Hz).
       
      In a post dated 7/30/2018 Loren listed four conditions for the light to come on.  The two conditions for which the light flashes slowly (0.5 Hz) are the following:
       
      Engine coolant too low
      Engine compartment temperature too high
       
      None of these conditions applies to my car.
       
      The light comes on after about 20 minutes of driving and it seems to be triggered (but not always) by running the engine above 4,500-5,000 RPM (with coolant temperature at normal values and, I assume, engine compartment temperature also at normal values.  This is not driving in heavy traffic, this is normal out of town driving ).
       
      Using  the Porsche tester it was possible to establish that the engine compartment fan works.  However,  it does not come on when I drive the car in traffic and the coolant temperature gets to 215F.  This, I would assume, should cause the engine compartment temperature to become elevated and the fan to run.
       
      The engine compartment sensor, located on the passenger side intake manifold, is installed properly  and seems to read the temperature of the engine compartment correctly.
       
      Any thoughts on what is going on?
       
      Thanks

      Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the seat on a 2008/957 Cayenne which they can let me have?

      I’m trying to chase a fault where the passenger seat will motor up and down and the backrest will adjust forward and aft, but there is no response from the controls to move the seat unit forwards and backwards, or the four-way lumber support control.
       
      Thanks in anticipation...

      When we replaced the coolant in my car in 2013, we used coolant Porsche part number  ‘000-043 -301-05-M100’(pre-mixed).  The color, based on a little quantity left in one of the 2013 bottles, was red. The coolant in the car seems yellow now.
      I have just topped off the coolant today, using Porsche coolant part number  ‘000-043 -305 15’, red color (I mixed it with water, 50%).
      Could somebody please confirm that the 2 coolants are compatible?
      Thanks

      I'd appreciate a second set of eyes to verify these part numbers.

      I'm least sure of the 3rd one but it looks like they simplified it for the Mk2 but didn't bother to update the Illustration because one end of this has 2 connections in the illustration but mine doesn't and the picture on Pelican Parts looks like mine, so I think I'm right.
       
      Thanks for the help!
