  1. Hey JFP ! You never told me what you think of the Boxster Nose with smiley face that I sent a pix of.
  2. Hi JFP, I took your advice obtaining the necessary adapters for my Stant TC255.I got them at Amazon.I bought the 12016 and the 12017 adapters.The 12017 allows me to check the coolant cap.I did get the best price from Amazon. Thanks Again. Tom
  3. I didn't buy anything just yet. The Maddox does not include the 48mm adapter that you so kindly sent me a picture of .I am no rush.Oh yea,,the Maddox I was thinking of uses shop air which makes it cheaper and also made in Texas.
  4. Thank JFP. I just got off the phone with Pedro from Pedro"s Garage.He just told me to get the Maddox brand with many fittments from Harborfreight which has it for 79.99 and with 20% off and a $10 giftcard ,it's costing 54.The picture I'm sending is the new nose I did during pandemic and recovering from cancer.Hope you like it
  5. I am buying a cooling system pressure checking tool to keep in the shop.The one I saw is made by Stant. I saw technician using it on cable television "Tech Garage". show .It looks straight forward to operate. The issue is what adapter to buy that would fit the coolant tank.There are many to choose from. The tool also checks coolant reservoir cap. Thanks for your help.
  6. I HAVE BEEN CHASING A ALARM FAULT USING THE DURAMETRIC TOOL FOR AWHILE.I HAVE A 97 BOXSTER I PUT TOGETHER IN 1998 AFTER BUYING IT AS A WRECK.IT WAS A METRO BLUE WHICH I CHANGED TO POLAR SILVER WHICH WAS THE BEST DECISION I EVER MADE.THE CAR WAS A ROLLOVER WITH 19 MILES COMING FROM THE DEALER.I LEARNED TREMENDOUSLY FROM THIS PROJECT.THE ONLY THING ISTHIS FAULT ASSOCIATED WITH THE DASH ALARM.I AM LOOKING TO CHANGE THIS SENSOR , IF ONLY I CAN OBTAIN A GOOD PART NUMBER.THIS SENSOR IS LOCATED ON THE MIDDLE DASH AT THE BOTTOM OF WINDSHIELD
  7. i received the latest TSb from Porsche dated 2004 with 12 pages.This picture I am showing below resembles what mine look like except that mine is soldered.I have a 97 Boxster that's never been to the dealer.I also have two pins that have the retrofit of gold contacts soldered and shrink-wrap.what I did different this time was all brown wires (ground) each individually go to GP6 and GP7.I am using the latest buckles ending in 09 & 10.Wish me luck
  8. Hi JFP, I just heard from my friend at Porsche that he advises not to buy a used one of these.Reason is that "it is locked" and unusable.A brand new one is 1k.
  9. After 2 to 3 recurrences of airbag light coming on.after performing TSB6924 wiring changes.after changing both belt buckles with latest and greatest ending in 09 and 10 part numbers.The TSB is stating I should change my airbag control unit to the latest 996.618.219.02 .What I need to know is this a plug and play control unit install.I do have the Durametric version 6 which I know is not going to help.Is this module in a need to be programmed?
  10. I have been reading the vacuum canister has a bad track record.It has cracks that show up when pressurized under water .I am considering purchasing a smoke machine when the price is right.Any thoughts?
  11. The starter fluid works on vacuum hoses and connections before the fuel intake manifold (pre-spark plug.) It is not advisable to spray fuel or oil caps or dipstick tube as nothing should happen.
  12. I am having the same problem chasing a similiar problem but with a P1124 and a P1126.I too changed my AOS to the new type with a new "j" tube.I sprayed starting fluid on all joints while running hoping that the engine would sputter and it didn't.I will get a fresh can of starter fluid tomorrow and will try spraying gas and oil cap while running and also the oil dipstick that someone suggested to you.I thought this problem was fixed until a mile from my home after a 25 mile trip.
  13. It sounds like the only thing you haven't done is check the oil dipstick tube and replace the gas and oil cap. The oil dip stick tube sometimes can develop a crack and be tough to pinpoint.
