If this or something similar is it means there is an emissions issue with your vehicle. This could be something minor, but there is a chance it could be something more. We highly recommend you at least get this figured out so it does not do any type of further damage to your vehicle. We have several state of the art computer systems that can accurately read and help us diagnose these “Check Engine” lights. Depending on what the problem is, this can be a time-consuming process. Sometimes it is an easy fix, but sometimes there are more entailed issues. Make sure you get your “Check Engine” light figured out sooner than later.
“Tune-Up” Services: The phrase “tune-up” used to mean replacing the spark plugs, ignition wires, and distributor parts. Now there are other components involved with your vehicles ignition system that play a role in fuel economy and power.

Cooling System:Your Porsches cooling system is critical to its reliability. Ensuring proper engine cooling not only allows your engine to maintain at safe operating temperatures, but also allows for your interior heat to function properly. If you ever notice your vehicle is running hot, coolant light is coming on, or that your heat is not blowing hot air out of the vents, you should probably get that checked sooner than later to prevent possible damages. Most older Porsches air air cooled however and do not need this check performed. All Porsches from 1997 and newer have fluid cooling systems.

We also clean and adjust all contact points on the calipers, lubricate the slide pins, and ensure there are no brake squeals or noises.

These services vary in pricing, depending on what the problem is, but usually an hours diagnosis is sufficient to for us to diagnose.

We use a high-pressure pump that runs a concentrated detergent through the fuel lines, fuel rails, fuel injectors, and intake valves. This cleans out any sediment that has built up over the years. We then run a second high-pressure sprayer with a different detergent through the intake manifold that cleans the intake manifold, throttle bodies, and continues to clean the intake valves.
