  1. In full agreement with "ekstroemj" prices in general are also higher as well.
  2. That's more than double in consumption, in this case the engine should run badly and smoke like an old school diesel. Are you shure there is no leak or the fuel disappeared, by circumstances, in an other vehicle? With M.S. in the background i would pay attention.
  3. It's a Boxster, the wire is located above /rear side of the left rear plastic wheel well.
  4. Is the handle retraction spring, wrapped in black fabric in the pic, not broken?
  5. Follow the wiring of the left pump, under the rear seat. She goes through the car floor, to the far left corner of the car, there is a connection point which will burn in after time and consequently provides too much resistance. If this is the case replace this section.
  6. The pressure cap (filling cap) on the expansion tank is in many cases a source of annoyance due to pressure loss, there are devices on the market to test this but a new one does not cost an arm and a leg and can fixes problems as yours.
  7. Believe me, that's the way to go for ROW cars. After disconnecting the battery, you should wait a few minutes (5 a10) to be sure. Succes.
  8. I hope there is oil in the gear box, just take a look you never know.
  9. For ROW cars, the key must be placed in the ignition switch, in the "ignition on possition", and let it stand until the battery is reconected. This will prevent the alarm from being activated.
  10. Is the handbrake indicator light on the dash lit ?If not check the microswitch under the handbrake lever.
  11. There is a chance that the electronic fan speed controller is defective, than he automatically switches to full speed. The controller is located in the airstream between the fan and the condenser inside the AC unit.
  12. The question is whether the flywheel is not loose relative to crankshaft flange, defective dual-mass flywheel, loose torque converter/broken mounting plate (starter ring) if Tiptronic.
  13. A little thought about this, the flywheel is however fixed according to the indicated values? What JFP in PA quotes is definitely true.
  14. This is just an adaptor, the leak probably comes from the fastening system between the vacuum tube and the adaptor.
  15. Disconnecting Battery

    For ROW cars: ignition on, engine not running. So it should go.
