    ?? early - mid 2000 Boxster S ??
  1. code worked. Many thanks. Peter
  2. Loren, Can't find my radio code. '01 Boxster S CDR 220 4460 24/99 ser# 15088695 Many THanks, Peter
  3. Just an update. I ordered a rad cap, and a spare plastic igniition switch from one of the online Canadian parts places. I did receive the same cap as the black one pictured above. While my .00 blue cap wasn't leaking fluid , I could hear a bit of air venting around it a few weeks ago when I was at the grocery store (car off). It was a slight hissing sound, similiar to a pinhole leak in a tire. I'll keep an eye on the tank and monitor coolant levels over the next few weeks. Peter
  4. Just trying to get confirmation if the latest Porsche OEM cap (996.106.447.04) is black plastic instead of blue.... Not sure when they went from 03 to 04. No Porsche dealers within a 2hr round trip of me, so I'm likely going to order it online..... I noticed a light hissing sound a couple nights ago when getting some groceries outta trunk... Going to try the cap 1st. I have the .00 version still on my '01 BoxS Thx, Peter
  5. whale tail near Waterloo Ontario does Porsche only I believe... (junkyard), never dealt with them personally. Peter
  6. Great job. How tall are your Jack stands? I have the standard 16.75" ones. Just wondering if they would be tall enough to remove the tranny and get to the IMS? Thx Peter.
  7. The Front Crankshaft seal on my 2001 Boxster S is weeping a little bit of oil.... Not enough to actually drip on the garage floor. Just noticed a wet spot on the engine when I was doing an oil change on the weekend. I think part of it is the fact that my car sits for 4+ months in the winter when we have snow/slush and tons of SALT on the roads. - the seal may have dried out. Then again, I heard the Porsche engines seem to weep /leak a bit as a norm..... Anyone DIY? I've replaced fork seals on motorcycles with some macgyvered hand tools. Thanks, Peter
  8. it was under $20US inc. shipping to Canada... I got it on ebay.. Blaupunkt /becker cables work with the CDR220 P
  9. I got the removal keys from ebay. I found the radio very 'stiff' to pull out. Make sure u are pulling the radio out level (horizontally) or with maybe a slight downward angle or it won't budge. It took me quite a few tries, a few cuss words and sore fingers to get it to come out. I swear I was going to break it with all the tugging I did.... I think the angle of the tug is the most important... This was to get the aux becker cable into the back of my cdr-220 so I could ipod/iphone my tunes. Peter
  10. Finally got around to replacing it, the mount was totally failed. Notice any improvements in shifting since replacing the tranny mount? Peter
  11. Down on power? I got my '01 S in June. It has about 74,000km on the odometer. Just wondering if anyone has felt a performance increase when changing out an old for new filter? on any vehicle Apparently my '01S is not as peppy as it should be. A neighbor I met who also has a 986S said that his car is noticeably faster than mine (He's only driven mine for about 5 minutes). I haven't had a chance to drive his yet because he's currently working on his CV joints. My car isn't showing any CEL's, apparently has a drive-by-wire throttle. There is no hesitation or misfire. It idles fine. This indicates to me that the MAF and the TPS should both be fine, or else CEL's would appear. Yes the CEL dash light works, at least on startup. I have a generic OBDII scanner, but haven't scanned the boxster yet. My initial thoughts are really dirty airfilter? or dirty throttle body. One night, I had stopped into see my fellow Porsche brethren, and I had made the comment to my neighbor that the car was fairly fast, not kick in the @ss fast. It can get to 100kph easily in 2nd gear, just that there was no real excitement. Just a lot of noise. I'm used to fairly 'quick' vehicles, so maybe the Boxster S isn't supposed to blow me away. My rainy day / winter car / grocery getter is a 2001 Jetta 1.8T with APR chip. It's rated at about 210hp and probably weighs 33-3400lbs. My other fairweather vehicle is a 2000 Honda VFR800 sport-touring motorcycle - probably 80hp and 500lbs. I would say may Boxster S accelerates about the same as my Jetta, maybe a touch faster. By the numbers, I think my Jetta should do sub-7's for 0-60mph, and the Box S should be in the sub-6 category...... My butt dynometer can't really tell the difference between the 2. Both my cars feel fast after spending the weekend driving my wife's 2003 CRV stick. I stopwatched the CRV a month ago coming home from the cottage, and with 2 kids, wife and dog in the vehicle, it did 0-60mph from a rolling start in about 13-15seconds..... How much hp do u think I can lose in a Box S if it is in-fact a dirty airfilter?
  12. I read on here to use a thin allen key (think about 4mm or so) to push the latch in on the buckle receiver until it clicks. This is what I have been doing since installing the 'bar' Works great. In fact, I usually just have the passenger airbag off, as I never have an adult in the front seat. as 99.9% of the time I have a passenger in the car it's one of my 2 kids. If I get in a front fender bender (heaven forbid). I at least save the pass. airbag. P P
  13. I have Pedro's enthusiast mount. The vibration is a bit more than I'd like, but the price was very good. I don't have anything really to compare it to, as this is my 1st Boxster S, and I've only test driven one other Boxster (non-S). I replaced my OEM mount about 3 weeks into my ownership, as I was having problems shifting. It has helped with that. My boxster is noisier with Pedro's mount, and more vibration is felt, especially in the 3000rpm range. Peter 2001 Box S
  14. Most Starting Car batteries have a fairly high reserve capacity or amp-Hour rating.... Most modern radar detector draw minimal current, but if your battery was marginal, I guess it could drain it in a week. A multimeter should read between 12.6-12.8V an hour or 2 after u turn off the car if it is close to 100%... 12.0V would be a pretty flat battery.
