  1. Well, I checked for the clicking noise when pushing my finger through the filler flap and there was no noise. I checked the fuse and it's not blown. I decided for good measure to swap it with the E7 fuse which is also 7.5a. Tried the fuel filler flap again and no clicking noise. I went to the gas station and I still have the filling issue. I'm going to call the repair shop that worked on it since this never occurred before the accident and see if they have a fix or can get it in. Thanks for the suggestions and information, I hope I can get this easily and cheaply (as in free) resolved soon.
  2. 2001 Boxster 2.7L 45k miles, 5 speed manual> Tonight is the first time I tried to fill my gas tank since getting my car back from being repaired from an accident. The external cosmetic damage to the car overall wasn't great, but there was a lot of damage underneath from rebar set into the ground that held a wooden snow fence in place. There was a lot of fuel line and coolant line repair among other things. There was no damage to the car on the side the fuel filler is on nor, to my knowledge, any damage to the gas tank itself or filler tube. Anyway, I was low on gas leaving work so I stopped to fill up with about an 1/8 of a tank left (I had to drive 40 miles to get home). I start to fill it and the pump clicks off. I try again and it clicks off again. I pull the nozzle back and gas starts to gush out. Okay. So I try again, but with the pump at its lowest fill rate and it still does it. So, I drove for awhile until I got to another station where I know I've filled up before with no problem. Same issue. So I drove all the way home (barely). First thing I did was find some tubing. I found some 5/8" thick walled tube about 3' long. I pushed it down into the filler and it went where I could feel it working it's way into the tank. So it wasn't obstructed as far as I could tell, so I grabbed the 2 gallon gas can I have in the garage, took my other car and filled it. I was able to fill the tank in my Boxster with it. I made another trip and filled it again with the can. Now I have about 1/3 of a tank. So I can fill the tank with a gas can, but not from a pump. My guess is that air is getting trapped and has nowhere to go when attempting to fill with pump gas. Is there a breather that's blocked or not open, or something else that didn't get reset or otherwise screwed up? Ideas? Tomorrow I plan to call the place that did the work obviously, but hoping there's an easy solution I don't know about that I can fix tonight.
  3. I have a small oil leak as well. 2001 Boxster with 25700 miles on it. I haven't gotten under the car to see exactly where it's coming from yet. I hope to this weekend. I've only had it since January and I haven't pulled the top engine cover or really taken anything apart yet and I've been itching to. I need to set aside half a day and just play around checking things out including that leak. It only seems to leak when I've gone over about 4000-4500rpm and when it leaks it's not much at all. I've noticed in about 2-3 months the oil level go down about one bar on the digital dash readout. I'm two bars below completely maxed out and on the dipstick I'm "full". Just can't be that bad. Still I hate thinking the thing is leaking _at all_.
  4. I got my hands on a King Gator. It's too large to fit inside the well to get at the lug nut. A couple mornings ago I noticed some oil on the garage floor though. I haven't seen any fresh spots since then, but apparently I have a small oil leak. I'm going to take it in soon for that anyway so I'll have the dealer pull those old anti-theft lugs. Thanks for all the input.
  5. I bought my 2001 Boxster in January. When I bought it there were anti-theft lugs on the front wheels, but not on the rear. I bought a full set of four anti-theft lugs to put on the rear and replace the front lugs. I don't have a socket to fit the front anti-theft lugs however. Is there any way to remove these myself without going to a dealer (I assume they'd have the socket to fit it)? Best option I could think of are those horrible infomercials for Gator Grip. http://www.endeavorproducts.com/ggrip/ggrip.html Any other ideas/options? I have 18" Porsche wheels by the way.
