Thats the reason I never buy new. When I make a auto purchase it usually under a year old, with about 10000 miles. Its like new & still has that new car smell, with a great discount. Its nice to have a new car, but they lose value very fast.
Went to my local Porsche dealer for touch up paint. While I was waiting, I paid a visit to the showroom. Just for the heck of it, I asked the salesman how much he would give me if I traded my car in. When he told me he could maybe give me $11000, I almost fell over. I think Ill be driving my Boxster around for awhile ( not saying theres anything wrong with that). I forgot to mention MY2000 base.
Cleaned the engine yesterday, looks like new. Used Simple Green. Drove awhile to dry engine with engine cover off -wow it was loud & threw off alot of heat . Checked under car & so far no leak, but havent checked engine yet.
Thanks for the quick responses. After reading a few posts on here,thats what I thought. As Loren suggests, I will clean the engine, before I do anything. Dont think it happened while adding hydraulic fluid, because, I added it last year. After driving I notice a drop of fluid on the floor. Is this an somewhat easy fix ?. Thanks
Have a small oil drip pass side of car-pic 1. MY 2000 base. I checked engine bay & spotted where it was coming from-Pic 2&3. I thought it was oil but I drove to local indy shop, & he said it looked like hydraulic fluid. In pic 4, it looks like this black tube & hydraulic filler tube hose have fluid on them . Sorry about the cropping but I couldnt fit pics otherwise. Any help in this matter would be great,since I want to try this fix myself. Thanks.
Have MY2000 base. Took her for drive other day- 1st time since Dec- weather starting to get nice. Well, CEL came on. Went to Autozone & got error code 1130. Also came on last summer but had them reset it. Car is running great, with no issues. Gonna take advice & remove MAF & clean with electronic cleaner. Also awaiting delivery of a Actron CP9135, to check codes myself.
I have a MY2000 base w/45000. Deflection roller broke last summer causing the belt to come off while driving. Lucky no other parts were damaged. Never opened the engine before so I was a lil hestitant to do repair. Changed roller & belt with no problem.
Gotta agree with you Mike. One of my Deflection rollers broke causing the polyrib belt to come off. Didnt know what happened @ that time,just knew I was stuck on side of road. Well trying to get home I discharged the battery (because I would start the car,drive a few miles shut her off awhile,then restart.) After doing this a few times I discharged the battery.Got her home put her on a battery maintainer for a day-havent had any problems since.
get a new roller, and just replace it, what happened is the bearing in the one on your car went..that is why it is cocked. darn simple repair. buy a new mounting bolt too so as to make sure it is not left hand thread Thanks for quick reply...Roller is $80 from dealer.No one seems to have the mounting bolt.
Been reading the site for awhile but never posted.Site is great & very informative.Im having a problem with 2000 base boxster, owned bout 2yrs w/ only 45000 miles. Polyrib belt came off while driving(long story).When I got her home,I accessed the engine(info from u guys on this site).Seems like belt didnt break but slipped off & was in engine bay.Noticed that Deflection roller #2(lower one) seperated from cover plate.Any assistance in making this repair would be great,as I will attempt this myself.Pics attached .Thanks.
