Hey everyone!


I am sharing this experience, which is still in progress...


I glanced out the window at work at my 04 Cayenne S and noticed a little puddle. This puddle was about the size of a DVD disk in front of the front passenger's side tire (note, not behind the front passenger tire), about where the wheel well meets the bumper. The puddle had a ring at the edge that was light orange. When I looked under the hood I couldn't notice anything leaking, and wasn't able to find anything meaningful.


I noticed that the engine temp raised slightly this evening when I was parked and talking with someone picking up dinner. The temp went back down once we started driving (ie. air flow), which in general is abnormal for the gauge to sit anywhere other than center-mass. I would like to avoid taking it in to a shop if possible and repair it myself. I have seen/read that the reservoir can sometimes crack, or that the hose can leak, as well as the pipe under the intake manifold can leak as well.


Anyone have any thoughts, or similar experiences? I'll share what I find as a I go along!


Credits for the Title: Buster Poindexter - Hot Hot Hot...fun song, and the direction of my engine if I don't get this fixed! lol


update: added photo- the object that is circled in red is where I can see it dripping from when lookin through the passenger wheel well (looking towards the front of the Cayenne). It’s dripping onto the fog light.
