  1. what does something like that cost?
  2. Circle Porsche in Long Beach had the old ignition part. I asked for it by the Audi part number and he was like "oh, that a Porsche part also and went and got it right away".
  3. Yep, been there; done that. BTW, in my case, the leak was on the engine side of the tank where it goes thru the wall so when I pulled the carpet back in thre trunk, everything looked OK, but alias (later) when I looked in the engine area....a new tank was needed. Yep. I just went through it too. :cursing: Hope it's all better soon. :thumbup: <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
  4. no unfortunately I do not have the Porsche PST2; just a regular OBD II code reader.
  5. Here's an update on troubleshooting P1124/P1126 on my MY 97 Boxster with 95K. I happen to have the Porsche OBDII book as well as scan tool. I found that I was also getting a P0130 (O2 sensor, cylinders 1-3) when I started the car up and let it idle in the garage (door open, of course). The scanner updates every 15 scans. Prior to this I always got a P1124/P1126 together but nothing else, but I always checked after the Check Engine light came on. After readin in the book, I ofund that P0130 is a non-latching coode and will be cleared after some time if the fault is "healed". This code is
  6. I have a 97 986 and a '68 911. I've been working on early 911 for 7 yr and only recently got the Boxster. My take is folks driving the early 911s and 356 are driving them becuase they want to and love the cars. Many of the folks driving new 911s and Boxster probably view them as just another sports car that makes you look cool (or whatever). With that said, obviously there are drivers of the new Porsches as well that are just as dedicated to the marque, but harder to separate them from the posers. I usually look to see if they have PCA sticker in the window. Its a good indication they a
  7. hello redline..... do your statement about a faulty MAF also apply to P1124/P1126? Sounds like you have dealt with this problem more than once. any other suggestions to check? I have the Porsche OBD II and done all the things they suggest without success. Also a number of other folks posting with similar/ same problem. Thanks
  8. Like many of the folks posting here, I also have P1124/P1126 always together, but never anything else. My car is '97 2.5 with 95k miles. Recently I am going them more often which made me think something is starting to fail but after reviewing the all the psot one this site I have procrastated about starting the swap-a-part process. I have only had the car about 9 months and its SEEMS to happen more often on warm/hot days (summertime now in LA; plenty hot! so happens every few days) Also, I do a lot of driving in stop-n-go travel (life in the big city :D ) Both my mechanic and I have gon
  9. there is no such thing as a '65 911e. There was only the std. model with no subscript (T,E,S). as for the price, that's in the right ballpark. I know a guy who sold his for $20k and it was in very original, but un-restored conditions. With that said, you need to look past the shiny paint and check out how much has been replaced, resotred, etc and if it was done right.
  10. still learning about Boxsters as I got mine used (long-time early 911 owner also), but got a MY97 with 95k on it (and adding 60miles/dy as a daily driver). As I know there were issues with leaking rear main seals and then some motors got sleeved cylinders (porsche did not tell cust. at the time). I guess I am always surprised when Porsche owners are worried about "high-mileage" when its not even at a 100k miles. If you own a Chrylser or a GM product, well thats a different story. A well maintained German auto (pick your brand) should go a couple of hundred kilomiles unless you take it to
  11. There are quite a few post about this related topic and it raises a few questions since I am now seeing P1124, P1126 on a regular basis. Background: MY97 with 95K miles; I was seeing these two codes (always together) about once every 6-8 weeks. Now done to less than 1 week between appears (daily driver; 58 miles round trip) :drive: . I have never had any other codes appear. In reading thru the post going back over the last year or so on this topic, it seems many people get these codes (or similar) along with some other code (which tends to be the root cause of their problems). In case
  12. No need to use such heavy oil you mentioned; use recommended weights (look in owners manual). Your engine is still young.
  13. I think you better starting complaining right away becuase you are going to get the shaft. Basically, you had a brand-new car and now it is less than perfect to no fault of your own. You will need to repeat this dozens of time before the insurance company will understand. You should not settle for less than new condition. Thus (depending on how you drive) if the tires are already pretty well worn (say 40% gone; measure tread depth) then you need to be compensated for 60% of the price of a new set of tires. What you actually do with the money is your business. Likewise, you have suffer
  14. Here's some photos. Just says "Made in Italy" and what appears to be a date code for 1996.. I could not find a part number on the side. This illustrates the dangers of going to the swap meet early in the morning when you are half-alseep. :huh:
  15. I bought some Porsche wheels at a swap meet this weekend in the LA area and got them home and they don't fit on my car (Boxster, MY97/17" wheels). :cursing: They stick out beyond the fender by about 10mm (back wheels) so clearly the offset is wrong. The wheels are 7.5x17" in the front and 9x17" in the rear. They look very, very similar to the OEM Boxster wheels I have (twisty look) and looks similar to (or may be) the Cup3 type wheels. The guy had them on a '86 Turbo and thought they came off a Boxster (I guess not). It does not appear they would come from a 996. Are they wheels from a
