does a RMS leak usually come from the central/bottom inspection hole in the bell housing [can see the flywheel thru it, right??] ~~~~~~~~~~~ first time I have seen a "leak" since buying the car used....... pretty heavy weight dark fluid coming from area..... engine oil level does not seem to be going down, even after a 3 hr drive at 70 MPH ..... could it also be a front trans seal issue on my car? thx................
My 1999 Boxster just turned 160,000 miles on Saturday while driving over the Continental Divide at the Eisenhower Tunnel/I-70 .... coming back from a bicycle tour near Aspen [see pic of custom bike rack I designed/built for the car; even tilts back for trunk access ... and still gets 34 MPG even in the mountains!!]; bought the car from the original owner 2 years ago with 152,000 on the odometer [complete with ALL repair/service receipts]~~~~~~ the engine was changed out under 'warranty' by Porsche at 98,000 miles AT NO COST...... added a set of SS Headers over the winter; did the conversion for OBComputer readout; turn signal mods; installed a short-shifter kit [off ebay]; installed an Optima battery [after the OEM / original battery died after not driving it for a month last winter...]... I also have a 1977 911 steel Slantnose conversion with 157,000 miles on it! engine was prof. rebuilt at 90k w/all correct mods/updates done;tranny rebuilt 5 yrs ago [owned now for 16 yrs since first 2 owners]..... BOTH running STONG!!! what a pair to have to drive daily here in COLORADO!!!
My program cam up with a code 2 digits different - 1268 Let us know which one works. back again [working on the car all day ...another issue] ......... thx, but looks like the radio must have been replaced at some time; found this info thru "T/P" scrolling method >>> Becker CDR-220 4462 X5017454 again much thx!! Dux Try 7142 or 7141 thx, but neither of those worked .... any other ones I should try? much apprecaited... Dux 10/30 update -- FYI____ dealer gave me 7143 .... worked fine!
REVISED 10/26 >>> I have a similar problem w/my recently purcahsed 1999 Boxster [154000 miles but w/facotry replaced engine at 93000 miles ; are all the sensors 'new' w/engine they do? I am assuming so from what I've read...]; I tried to do a wire continuity check from each Cam Sensor [Hall sensor] back to the ECU connector, using a wiring diagram from this site >> http://www.cannell.co.uk/Manuals.htm ... per that wiring schematic [sheet 190-192 of 225] I get a good connection/wire to Pin 21 on the ECU from Pin 2 on each CSensor...... BUT I get continuity from Pins 1 & 3 of each CSensor to ECU Pin 34 AT THE SAME TIME [ these are each supposedly separate circuits I think, either 5V power [from ECU pin 34] or sensor ground [ECU 53]............. SAME readings when I connect a meter to ECU pin 53, both Pins 1 & 3 again continuity at the SAME TIME also ............ I'll confuse this more, as the wiring diagram also shows these CSensor grounds & power also tie into the Throttle Body sensor ground & power; so I pulled the plug off it [above test were WITH PLUG ON ].... now the Driver-side Cam Sensor has NO continutiy on either of the 1 & 3 pins to either ECU pin 34 or 53 !!! PSSGR-SIDE CSensor has same readings [continuity] as first tests ..... WEIRD? I now see in the wiring diagram that there is a Differential Pressure Sensor that also uses the common Power & Ground for all 4 items! same CEL codes come back after driving a mile or so [.... and possibly a MAFSensor 'pending' code P0100 sometimes shows in may scan tool].... HELP!!! any ideas on these 'shorted' readings? no wire damage areas that I can see anywhere... WILL I DAMAGE THE ENGINE DRIVING ANY MAJOR DISTANCE W/THESE CEL's for the CSensor? any help is again appreciated...... [not as simple to work on 'electrically' as my 1977 Slantnose Widebody 911S!!!!] thx, DUX STATUS OF REPAIR >>> 10/29/2007 finally located that Diff Press Sensor .... it is at the gas tank inlet! so disconnected the X3/1 connector that feeds power & ground to it located in the trunk left of the ECU], as well as the other 3 connectors to 2 Cam Sensors & throttle body .... then tested all wires for continuity from each plug back to the ECU related pins; ALL OK! checked codes again after reconnecting everything & all but "CSensor bank 1" code P0341 were now cleared. So without dropping the engine I was able to remove the Oil Seperator unit with tight access thru the wheel well [you need to pretty flexible to do this!!], but got the sensors off [held in by one 5mm socket head screw] ,,,,, once installed & driven around for a 20 minute run each day for 2 days, no return of any codes!!! keep up the great posts & replies all, Dux UPDATE >>> 11/10/2007 drove from Cleveland to Hays, KS [on way home to Denver] in 19 hrs straight-thru; car ran superb all the way........ got between 28 & 31 MPG at the posted speeds ..... not a single glitch or CEL issue !

I bought a used 1999 Boxster recently; the radio previously worked & it has a Radio Code Card ..... but in clearing a CEL code [that another story .... ], I disconnected the battery for 5 minutes. Now it won't take the code.......... the card has >>> Becker CDR 220 BE 4462 serial # Y5016498 says code is "1270" ............ anything I need to know why this might not now work? I'll try the serial number search method I've read about in other links to make sure this is the right card for the currently installed radio............ Thank you for any help you can give, Dux
