The possibility that your Porsche performance suffers a breakdown, especially a serious malfunction, always among the biggest fears of a driver. That is the reason why a buyer often tries to find a trusted brand when purchasing a new or used Porsche performance parts or vehicle, and tends to repeat those manufacturers who keeps a good experience. That is also one of the causes that generate greater tension between the client and the manufacturer, when the first associated with a fault to a problem of reliability of your car, or even manufacturing defects. But did you know that many faults can be avoided, if we acquire a good driving habits?
There are a number of faults that with bad habits may be causing the driver. And correcting these bad habits obviously they can be avoided. Behaviors that do not always result in immediate failure, but slowly undermining the reliability of certain components. Components that, while subject to wear, can often be problematic when making use of warranty coverage, or claim a manufacturing defect.
What bad habits are damaging my Porsche Performance? What can I do to avoid these problems?
Not enough revolutionize the engine. Believe it or not, the fact lead to very low engine regime and not allow your engine reach high rpm, is one of the reasons they end up more cars in the workshop. Modern engines, especially diesel, used anti-pollution systems that require a higher rate is achieved to reach operating temperature, and proceed to regeneration. Failure to achieve an adequate system in the engine also contributes to the accumulation of carbon deposits, which eventually can also create problems.

Manufacturers have tried to solve the problem with a sort of automatic regeneration such as using Tubi Style Exhaust system for best engine performance. In any case, it is advised try to ensure that your engine is given a joy, if periodically performing a stretch of road at a high rate and a constant speed to ensure a high temperature of the exhaust gases. This habit is especially important in those cars that are used often, but only in urban areas.
Revolutionize excessively cold engine. Another habits that generate more stress to an engine is revving excessively before it reaches operating temperature. Unfortunately, the practice of installing a temperature measuring circuit engine oil is becoming less common time. In the absence of that meter, the best advice for driving passes gently for a few minutes, in which the motor will reach operating temperature, the oil that lubricates begin to flow naturally. Consider that the lubricating oil is highly dependent on the temperature of this and therefore cold. If lubrication is not optimal, it will be very high. This habit can drastically limit the durability of an engine.
Pushing the fuel tank to the reserve. Avoid squeezing the last drop of fuel. And not just for the fact that, by rushing too, can run out of fuel (which even could cost you a fine). When the tank hurry to the last drop, we are making the fuel pump requires a greater effort to absorb it. A very low level can cause air bubbles that prevent proper cooling of the pump are formed, and what is worse, absorb sediments that eventually are formed in the bottom of the tank. These sediments may cause damage to the fuel pump, clog the filter, and even get to the injectors.
Failure to observe periods of maintenance and oil change. Maintenance periods of a car, ie, the scheduled overhauls to change oil and filters, are not an invention of the manufacturers to get the customer money. In fact, manufacturers have compelling reasons to make those periods are safe for your car, but also long enough for maintenance costs of a car not shoot.
The lubricant is one of the most important actors in ensuring the proper functioning of the engine, and make its durability increase. When attempting to extend the life of oil in your engine beyond recommended, you will be making your engine work with an oil whose properties have been resulting in decreased, with time and use, so that lubrication is not the same. It is very important to respect those periods of maintenance, especially when you do a demanding use of your car. And not only you understand demanding use a sporty driving, but also a high percentage of city driving.
