Last month I had to replace my water pump. I noted that I soon needed to add some coolant. Did so. Was advised that I might have had an air bubble or such but not to worry. This week, I was in heavy traffic for approximately 30 minutes. Pulled into my garage and noticed that as I drove into my slot there was small trail water. I lay down on the floor and looked under my car. It sounded like popping a champagne cork. Water /Coolent gushed from my car covering the floor. I waited for 2 hours and went down and checked the water level. It appeared to be empty. Filled it completely with water. Next day I had a flat bed truck (AAA) come and pick up my car, and deliver it to my local Porsche Dealer. They have checked the car twice, driving it and can not find any problem. They noted I had oil leak and I had the seals replaced. I am very worried about the over heating problem. I did not see any sign (Gauge or Icon) of over heating.
