Coolant Fluid for 2002 Carrera 4 Cab

Recommended Posts

Dear fellow Carrera owners, :help:

What kind of coolant fluid do you use when it's time to top off?

Do we need to get the "original" form Porsche dealerships?

What should be the mixture ratio?

Your input would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, get the OEM. It's more costly but it's supposed to last a "lifetime". Some trace OEM to a specialized euro brand (can't remember) which may be harder to find and not worth the savings for a top off.

Mixture ration depends on your temp. Typically, 50-50 is optimal. Use de-ionize water, not tap or mineral water to avoid scale build up in radiator.
