  1. new water pump instant overheating

    Issue was with heatercore replaced it with one from eBay and that resolved vacuum leak issue Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Yep, replaced heater core found decent instructions online . The old one did show signs of coolant leak . Thanks to airlift Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks @Ahsai Checked fuses and found two connectors that were not connected back at the windshield vipers connected them back. And checked batter voltage that was very low (8v). I am not sure what happened. So I tried to charge but wouldn't charge much so disconnected ground and recharged it overnight. And connected battery terminals in the morning and the car started. Drove to work this morning, so far good.
  4. Hi All, I am finally done replacing radiator fans and heater core. And then tried to start my 986 base and I got several message on the dash and the car does not crank. - Failure Oil Level Indicator - PSM failure Indicator -Airbag Failure so I thought the batter is low and charged it overnight and tried again this morning. Same thing. Any ideas. the car was in running condition prior to this job. Any ideas where some thing would have gone wrong.?
  5. They didn't respond, and I didn't bother to followup. At present I have other problems that I am dealing with, for now I don't lock the car!.
  6. new water pump instant overheating

    Thanks JFP. Found the vacuum leak, when I not connect the heater core pipes (2 metal pipes) under the rear passenger side wheel, I don't see vacuum drop. I had to plug hose from engine and return to split hose to isolate that line. So I am chasing the the heater core, I just posted a new issue for that.
  7. Hi Guys, I finally narrowed my vacuum leak on my coolant system to heater core pipes. When I isolated heater core pipes near the split hose under rear passenger side, I could see vacuum holds at 25psi. So I am suspecting a hole or a hose leak at the heater core. I know heater core is under the battery, but wondering how to get to the heater core. Bentley manual does not cover this topic. Any help with instructions are appreciated. Enclosing a picture from my car.
  8. Any update from you florida miles ? did you replace the water pump ?
  9. Thanks JFP. I just updated the picture with one more hose #6 from the bottom of the tank, And here is the updated list. #1: Engine Oil #2: Drain #3: Oil cooler (engine coolant vent) #4: radiators vents? #5: Level #6: Pump

  11. Hi guys i removed radiators to clean and found both have oil stains on the one side (outer side) is this normal for a 116k and 14 years old vehicle ? Is there way to pressure test these radiator on the bench ?
  12. Folks, I am trying to document my learning thru different posts on this forum to demystify cooling system in Boxster 986. 1. Engine Oil 2. Drain pipe that is open on the other end and can be found above the rear right wheel 3. Vent or Bleeder - I see there two vents coming from the radiators and from the diagram there should be another bleeder from the Engine. These are joined some where under the body and one pipe gets to the expansion tank. 4. Coolant pipe goes to Engine 5. pressure cap ? will in open on excess pressure ?
  13. new water pump instant overheating

    Is driver side radiator the Left one or Right one ? why I am looking to buy I found the description as left side radiator or right side radiator.
  14. Hi Guys I suspect a pinhole on the driver side radiator, so I wanted to dismount the radiator and inspect it. My problem is I don't know how to remove the two clips (see the picture) without breaking them. Any ideas ? - Driver Side Radiator - IS this called left side radiator or right side radiator ? Does any one has a part number for this ? - I found a radiator on rockauto for under 200 bucks
