  1. Hey guys, I have 2000 Boxster S thats been sitting for months now because it has a rod bearing issue. I found a running 2.5 for cheap becuase its a family friend. I wanted to know what would be needed to do a swap like that? Would it be harder or simple. Im thinking the DME would need to be remapped. Or is it better to sell the car as is? Im trying to empty out the garage so whichever would be faster.
  2. Bearings usually go out because of oil starvation which usually occur on the track but I dont track my car and I have had to frequently change my oil in the last few months of ownership because of a intermix issue. I still used to Mobil synthetic, but could it be anything else like a sticky lifter or exhaust manifold gasket? -96k miles.
  3. At this point I don't have the time to pull the engine. I'm gonna try to do some extensive research and maybe get lucky or just sell it for someone that wants to rebuild it themselves
  4. I can't upload any pictures because they all exceed the 2mb upload limit. I can email them to you if you like to see what the oil pan looks like. Should be able to reach and take out the bearings from the oil pan?
  5. The oil filter looked normal with casual wear.
  6. Hey guys new member here. Recently bought my 2000 Porsche Boxster S back in June and ran through plenty of problems since day 1 but today im a little lost. After a failed oil cooler, oil pump solenoid, new spark plugs, new window regulator, new AOS; im now stuck with a knock coming from from the driver side of the engine (U.S.) I haven't needed to get into the engine since I haven't had serious problems until now. Looking at similar knocks on YouTube, I think its a failed rod bearing. CEL came on for a Cylinder 6 misfire. I read at other posts about getting to them through the oil pan but can't find how. Besides pulling the oil pan, what else do I need to crack open? Do I need to remove the cross bar? By the way, I know something is going on because I pulled the oil pan off already and found alot more metallic flakes from wear and tear than usual. Im pretty sure the previous owner didn't do a oil change when he was supposed to. At this point, Im going to college with 5 classes and launching a business soon, so I hope im not stuck with a major rebuild. Planning to post pictures and video tomorrow. Thanks.
