Fortunately, our service center offers high-tech Porsche Hybrid repair for drivers in Fremont, San Jose, and nearby locations.
Common Repairs for Hybrids
Although it houses an electric motor, your hybrid is still powered, at least some of the time, by a gas-powered engine. This means it requires many of the same repairs and maintenances performed on gas-only vehicles, such as oil changes and “Check Engine” light diagnosis. Certain repairs, however, are more prevalent among hybrid vehicles – many of which involve engine airflow and emissions corrections. Let’s take a closer look at a few examples:
- Catalytic Converter: Filled with a chemical catalyst, such as platinum and palladium, a catalytic converter transforms emissions into safer gasses. Weak engine performance is one of the most obvious signs of a problem with the catalytic converter, as well as a drop in fuel economy.
- Oxygen Sensors: The oxygen sensor monitors the amount of unburned oxygen in the exhaust, helping your Porsche achieve hybrid-level fuel-efficiency. If your engine misfires or runs roughly during idling, a bad oxygen sensor could be the culprit.
- Battery Pack: Your Porsche Hybrid’s battery is rechargeable and capable of moving your vehicle from point A to point B, depending on its energy levels. If your hybrid needs a fresh battery pack, chances are the engine will run almost non-stop, while fuel-efficiency declines.
Before scheduling a service appointment, it’s important to vet a prospective auto shop for quality and experience; this rings especially true if you’re a hybrid owner.
