  1. Coolant hoses

    The main problem on replacing the Tip coolant valve is space; without at least lowering the transmission, it is in a very confined space to work, and is incredibly difficult to remove once disconnected. Can it be done this way? The answer is yes, but it takes way longer and is aggravating as all get out. Lower the trans, you will be glad you did...................
  2. Coil on plug ignition systems do not need or use a condenser.
  3. Usually, there is a connection between the foam issue and AC cooling. Because these heaters are always hot, air leakage of heated air into the AC system can defeat the AC and give you lukewarm air. Correcting the foam usually brings the AC right back.
  4. The oil pressure sensor system does not have an ignition interrupt. When you check the fuel pressure, what value did you see before starting and then running? And did you leave the system connected to see if it is bleeding off pressure?
  5. Pressure and volume are not necessarily related, you can have sufficient pressure, but not sufficient volume delivery. There are separate tests for each.
  6. I think he is referring to fuel volume delivery over time.
  7. Coolant hoses

    Done from underneath the car, by removing the panel in the water pump area.
  8. 2001 boxster s won't fire!

    Welcome to RennTech Could be any number of things; I would start by checking the fuel pressure and delivery rates. Cars that have sat for long periods often stir up junk in the tank the plugs the fuel filter.
  9. I would seriously doubt that, if the DME had a problem, the system should throw a code.
  10. The speed control is solid state and built into the fan motor itself. I believe that a PIWIS unit is capable of testing the system.
  11. I think you may find that the main cooling fan speed is pulse width modulated, meaning the fan motor speed is infinitely variable by PWM electronic control; so there is no low and high speed.
  12. Welcome to RennTech There are multiple micro switches in the doors (attached to the inside and outside door handle pulls) of these cars which drop the window slightly when opening the door. If one of these fails, the window thinks you are trying to open the door, and the window stays down. To figure out which one is out, you need to pull the door card and test each switch.
  13. Disable all lights off switch position

    Welcome to RennTech If memory serves on Canadian cars, the DRL are controlled by a programing "switch" in the DME software that can be set by a PIWIS unit, but it uses bulbs in the headlights, not the fog lights.
  14. No. The S calipers are designed for the larger diameter S rotors which will not fit without changing the rear uprights and hubs.
  15. Possibly, but not guaranteed.
