Customer Question

2009 cayman S porsche, upon starting develops a low hum noise coming from rear engine compartment on the drivers side. When the accelerator is pressed, the noise increases and escalates. upon backing up and turning the wheel, the noise sounds like low fluids in the engine compartment. The car runs smoothly and no default lights come on. After 5-10 mins of warming up, the noise dissapates and only returns when the engine has rested or cooled

Hello, the noise is your power steering fluid, you can pop the rear hatch, pull up the carpet and you will see 5 twist knobs to remove the engine upper paneling, and the reservoir is right there at the top. also you can check the pump for leaking if after a week or two the pump makes noise again, the fluid is called pentosin that goes into the power steering and can be bought at napa, its in a can called Chf202 here is a picture and i will also upload the work instructions. hope this helps. Lou
