  1. i have the opportunity to add a cold air intake for $150 is it worth it im not really concerned about the horse power just want to know if it's better for the car,better flow,better gas pedal response ,better overall everything thanks
  2. how long does this take ,how many hours and is there anything i should know before i start this
  3. i was just curious if anyone has ever done this or seen a boxter without the muffler , just straight pipes with the main catalytic convertor how does it sound,does it sound good please let me know
  4. does anybody know how to do this other than going to the dealer
  5. Air lock. Did you raise the bleed valve when you refilled with water? Underneath the plastic bottom cover where the oil and water caps are is a valve. Take the caps off, lift the plastic base out and put the oil cap back on, the valve is a piece of metal that you simply pull from its rest position to the opposite side - this lifts the valve, now with everything like this start the engine, do not put the water cap back on, let the engine tickover, water will be pushed around and this will shift the air up via the valve. When the engine reaches normal running temperature the thermostat will open and this will send a gush of water around the system, the trapped air will also move as it now has somewhere to go, leave it ticking over for another 5 minutes or so, water will gurgle up by the valve and as the air comes out and water repalces the hole you will need to top up the water. When no more water is needed the system will be bled. From the thermostat opening to the job done will be about 10 minutes. Your heater will then work. where exactly is this valve,sorry im trying to figure it out which plastic bottom cover? The overheating is the trapped air, the pocket allows steam as water boils at 100degrees, the rad cap introduces pressure to the system and every pound of pressure raises the boiling point of water by 2 degrees. All your problems will be fixed by bleeding
  6. I DONT THINK SO,FROM WHAT MY MECHANIC TOLD ME PLEASE I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY HELP ASAP I NEED MY CAR NO THE RADIATORS ARE NOT GET HOT The radiators wont get hot because of the air lock - do the bleed - it will all be OK Oh yes - take your caps lock off (the keyboard)- the type is shouting but my mechanic did the bleed and still not working
  9. How long will it take Can I do my self? Is it hard What are the quick steps,do I start from the front or back? Anybody please help
  10. my water pump was leaking so i changed it and now my car overheats and and i dont get any heat in the car i thought it was my thermostat but i tested it and it seems to open when it gets hot so i dont think its the thermostat anybody have any ideas
  11. hi i have a 2000 porsche boxter is there a restrictor plate on my car
  12. does anyone know how to program my remote key for my boxter
  13. MY2000+ are e-Gas (electronic acceleration), so yours is e-Gas. yes, you can drive in default mode. it will drive normally. it may act strange on first startup as it adapts engine settings. this should clear up in a few seconds if it even happens at all, and should be fine for all subsequent starts. no, an OBDII reader will not tell you if the MAF is not working (unless there is a specific code that means 'MAF not working' - but i don't think there is.) is your Check Engine Light on or has it ever been on? if not, i don't think you'd have any codes to read. a dealer or someone with a PST2 (Porsche System Tester) could diagnose the MAF by looking at the MAF parameters (voltage, etc.) there is also a way to test the MAF yourself with a multi-meter. i'll see if i can find the instructions. but for now, disconnect the MAF wiring, remove the neg battery cable for a few minutes (this will reset the engine controller) - (have your radio code if your radio needs one - for a 2000 i think you do), then reconnect the neg battery cable and start the car. see what happens... i had a bad MAF and eventually the car sputtered to a stall. i disconnected the MAF (and reset the engine controller) and the car never ran better in it's life. i was amazed. some people find that cleaning their MAF can clear up problems and/or extend the life of the MAF. see this page and the section called 'Try the MAF first' to learn how to clean it. http://mike.focke.googlepages.com/checkeng...ssairflowsensor if you do need a new MAF, do yourself a favor and save some money on it. a new MAF should cost around $250. and you could install it in 2 minutes. here's my 10 year-old installing mine! even a caveman could do it! :lol: I had great luck with: http://www.autohausaz.com/search/product.a...20Mass%20Sensor fast shipping and new parts. thanks for your help ,i appreciate it so if i can unplug the maf and the car will drive normally ,why dont i just do that instead of buying a new one
  14. i am wondering if it's the coil or the injector whats the best way to find out
  15. hi its a 2000 porsche boxter how do i find out if its electric acceleration or not can i drive in default mode,will it drive normal will the 0bd scanner tell me if the maf is not working
  16. hi its a 2000 porsche boxter how do i find out if its electric acceleration or not
  17. hi ,i was wondering if anybody had any answers for cause my mechanic is a little stupid, i went it to my car the other day and started the car ,started fine and i went to accelerate and got nothing,i towed it to a mechanic i guess a few hours later my mechanic started it and it was ok,he said he drove it in the garage the rpm gage moved a couple of cm,i have a manual 5 speed,anyways i called around and a couple of guys think it's the MAF SENSOR and also i dont know if i have electric acceleration or not i need help asap thanks please email me at tino007@shaw.ca
