    1997 Porsche Boxster
  1. Ok. This is at least a good start. Now maybe someone can help me figure out which of those three items you listed have a higher rate of failure or maybe one is easier to get to or maybe one is freak'en expensive.... So, can anyone help me determine the best approach to further investigating the following parts of the SAS: changeover valve, the vacuum activated valve and the one-way valve on a 1997 Boxster. Thanks!!
  2. question...when it it recommended to change the clutch fluid for manual transmissions (for a 1997 Boxster)? Is it the same interval as the automatics?
  3. Hi. Yes I would very much like to diagnose this and figure out what to start with. And yes the air pump does work as expected. That was the first thing my mechanic asked... As for a leak in a hose....my thought was this. If it were a leak in a hose, the problem would always be present. But, after clearing the codes, the Check Engine light will often stay off for weeks at a time. Also, there was a case or two, where the system cleared the code on its own. So, if it were a leaky hose, I'd think that the check engine light would be a permanent fixture on my dash panel
  4. Hi. I do not have a OBDII Reader (yet). I plan on getting one soon. The codes are P0410 and P1411. My mechanic says to replace everything because in his experience this is the most effective way to deal with the nagging problem for someone who does not work on cars. It makes sense for those folks to do that. The LAST thing you want to do it bring your car back to the shop to dig into the car again and replace another part in the system only to find out it's not fixed. Then do it all over again in a few months! But for those who do the work themselves and don't mind d
  5. Hi. I've got a 1997 Box. The car is in great shape with just under 40,000 miles. I'm the third owner and just got into it this past June. During this time, the Check Engine light has come on a few times and the codes alway indicate the Secondary Air System fault. My mechanic says its pretty common problem and the best course of action is the replace all the parts of the system as you really cannot diagnosis each part individually. The labor to get in there one part at a time would be nuts. So, he says it will run about $800 to fix it all up. First, I'd like to work on this mys
  6. Hello all! I'm new to the forum so please forgive me if I am posting this question in the wrong place. I have a general question about torque tolerance. For the moment, I'm not speaking of any particular bolt or nut or whatever you're torquing . But I imagine all car specifications for torque values should have (or even publish) the allowable tolerance or acceptable range the torque can be set to and it will be effective and safe. As an example, on the car I have, 1997 Boxster, the oil drain plug is stated at 39 ft./lbs. Great! That's probably the nominal value (middle of the
