    2000 Boxster S and a few more
  1. How about pulling off the transmission and checking out the IMS support and maybe bearing before turning the engine back on. An hour or two of labor, right?
  2. At this point, though, would you actually start up the engine for further diagnosis? Seems risky.
  3. In Washington state, most gas stations have the vapor recovery hood over the nozzle. I found a Shell that doesn't have the hood, just a "naked" nozzle (horror of horrors) and I can fill the tank fully. The last two times I tried filling the tank with hooded nozzles, it wouldn't fill all the way. Is this an indication that the "vent valve" is on it's way out? Something else?
  4. Where did you get your gas? It wasn't "racing" gas was it?
  5. I get the click, it's very clear, so I don't think it's the fuse. Is it true that MY2000 no longer has the tank hose/flapper interference issue? I'll poke around behind the fender liner.
  6. I've got a 2000S. I'm having the fuel filling issue where the nozzle shuts off quickly after starting to fill the tank. I can start it again, but it keeps popping off like the tank is full. I've checked the flapper at the fender and I get the "click" when I open it with my finger. My question is, could a MY2000 car have the fuel line interference with the internal flapper? I thought that was fixed with a redesign for the 2000 model year. If it could be the lines, how empty does the fuel tank need to be to remove the pump assembly without submerging my hands in gasoline? If it's not the internal lines, then the next culprit is the charcoal canister?
  7. Seems pretty expensive for a speaker from the junk yard. Check out Crutchfield.com for your options.
  8. It was a supercharger system sold either as a kit or installed at the office by imagine auto. They have since gone out of business.
  9. If the cap vents, there will be moisture on the trunk lid and possibly drops around the cap. This isn't necessarily a failure, the cap is meant to let off pressure. You can take a pressure tester on loan from most auto parts stores. This allows you to pressurize the system without running the car to try to find the leak. They've changed to coolant color a couple of times, I think it's been pink and yellow.
  10. I ordered one for my wife's '99 Boxster last year as a preventative measure. Not sure what the part number was, I'd have to dig out the receipt. The replacement was blue, and it was quite a few revisions removed from the old cap, which was blue too. This cap design has been around on VAG and Porsche products for a few decades now. The one in your picture says "West Germany" on it, so the pic itself is probably some old stock photo. If you click the "Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost" link above and give them a call, you're guaranteed to get the right cap, whatever the color. Mark The switch to rev 04 must have been within the last year, I bought the rev03 at the end of June last year and it's blue, but the rubber seal looks very similar to the one in your picture (my 00 didn't look the same). However, online pictures of the 04 appear to be blue. The one you show appears to match what the rev01 looked like.
  11. There's no scientifically collected data on the failure rate of the IMS in the Boxster/Carrera engine. The forums are definitely not the right place to collect it. It definitely does happen and is expensive when it does, but no one but maybe Porsche knows the IMS failure rate.
  12. Check on this forum for ignition switch replacement. That's definitely your problem.
  13. Lots of cars use the little deflectors in front of the front wheels. They probably help with evacuating the radiators and improve drag from the front tires a little. You most likely won't see a difference without them. I'd bet that alot of people are driving around with them broken off or missing and would never notice.
  14. I couldn't wait, so I took an educated guess. The tab won't rotate with respect to the chassis mounted bracket, so I put the lighter duty foam facing the outside.
