  1. AAA was here telling how great they are because they can switch batteries and you wont lose your settings and of course car died and I lost my radio. Here is my info Becker 1 Type 4462 24/99 serial X5038070 2000 996 Thanks dave
  2. the car starts and runs but the FOB wont remotely open the car. I know if it sits you need to open door etc. I will try the reverse polarity and see if that works. . . I wont be with the car until next week. It was working and then one day it wasnt. Do I put a new battery in. . . thanks dave
  3. I have a 2000 996 tip, convertable with 79k on it. I replaced the battery in the key but that didnt help. I also noticed that the valet lock will pop on randomly. I had to put it in gear to turn it off so I could pump gas the other day. Any tips? thanks dave
  4. Thank you. I will check that when I get back to LA next week. I can sleep a little easier. . . dave
  5. I have a 2000 996 convertable tiptronic with 78k on it. Its been running really good since I changed the MAF about 3 months ago and put new breaks on it. I live in LA and its been raining for 5 days straight and the car has been outside. I went to drive it the other day and it sounded a little rough and I backed out of driveway and started to take off and it was really rough with no power and I looked down and the check engine light was flashing so I shut it down and I have a reader that was in the car and it gave me those two codes (Po740 and P0301). I checked the ATF and that is low so I be
  6. I know and I have seen the quality of the fiberglass parts that Jeff sells and they are superior to most out there. . .Parts fit snug and dont need a lot of work to make them look right. I am getting ready to do my car here in the next few months. about 900 dollars in lights for headlight and lights for the bumpers. I will need a new frony bumper, fenders and hood. I am also putting rockers and a new updated rear bumper on the car. maybe 3k in parts there and a couple thousand for a good paint job. I paid 20k for my 2000 996 with 71k tiptronic convertable car. So for under 30k I will have a gr
  7. Hello all, I have a 2000 Tiptronic convertable with 71k on it and last night while sitting in traffic check engine light popped on and I got two codes.p0442 EVAP emission control leak (Small) also P0740 TCC Circuit Malfunction. I cant seem to find the second one. I erased the codes and it hasnt come back. Does anyone know what they mean in simple terms. I just bought this car a few months ago and I havent had any problems with it. I had just filled it up and driven about 100 miles on it and then it sat for 24 hours and then I was stuck in traffic for an hour or so. . .then a slow driv
  8. When I cleaned mine I worried about the same thing. But after driving it for a few minutes it was find and rock steady at like 650 rpm. I would double check to make sure everything is seated properly and no vacuum leak. There is a paper gasket in there that should be replaced when you put everything back together. Check that out could be a leak there. . .
  9. You can also check out this place. The website is new but functional. I bought a set of strosek look complete kit from them a few years ago and I am getting some stuff for my 2001 boxster now. Not sure what I want yet. They are great to work with. .. dave http://web.mac.com/nickmroz/Site/Boxster.html
  10. So I just cleaned my throttle body on my 2001 boxster with 107k on it and I must be lucky because everything came off and went back on pretty easy in a little over an hour. It was dirty in there so I think that was the problem. Is there anything I need to do now that it is all back together or will the computer know automatically what to do? Thanks dave
  11. I have done searches and found other post but I dont see a DIY on cleaning the throttle body. Has there been one? Thanks dave
  12. Just becoming a weekend mechanic so I wouldnt know if there was something wrong with the o2 sensor. I will look for cleaning throttle body and do that today and see what that does. thanks dave
  13. Thanks Loren, I cleared the code 4 days ago and it hasnt come back after about 200 miles. Is it hard to clean throttle body and get to the o2 sensors? thanks dave
