Hi Everyone! I'm trying to figure out what is going on with the wifey's 2003 Boxster 44K miles. It started with white smoke during startup..usually in the morning and it would last for over a minute then go away. So, took the advice from reading all the post about AOS and went ahead and changed the AOS and Jtube. Worked great....for 2 months. This morning I started it up and....white smoke. Few things I did: I drained out the oil form the oil filter, because last oil changed I put in 9 quarts...8.7 is what it requires. Took out the throttle body and cleaned it. Took out the J tube and noticed little oil....cleaned that as well. btw... A few days ago when I started it up in the morning... I did hear the air pump whining...like a high pitch whine. Not the normal sound of the air pump. Questions: 1. Can the AOS go bad in such a short period? 2. Can overfilling the oil to 9 quarts cause the smoke or cause the AOS to go bad? 3. Whining air pump...can this be a part of the smoke? Thanks

win911 replied to davebigrims's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)As for the rough idle....try cleaning your throttle body.

win911 replied to fakafer's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)What happens when you turn off your A/C? I believe there is a fan that turns on when the A/C is on so..... it could just be the fan.

win911 replied to win911's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)2000 C4.. The sunroof is stuck slightly open. Press the switch...I can hear the motor turning but the roof will not move. Are there internal gears in the motor itself that could go bad? Is this a common problem? DIY possible? How? Thanks
win911 replied to win911's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)UPDATE: The problem was the ABS system. Just a little under $1000.00 to replace. She is back on the road. So the symptom was soft brake pedal... initially felt like air in system... bled system.. worked for the first 10 mins. them back to being soft.... Change ABS and all is well. Thanks
