As I posted in Rattling Sound In Engine Bay my 2006 987-1 w/ 43k miles boxster began with a rattling noise in the engine bay that turned out to be the water pump. Took it to the dealer,'cause still have 11/2 month warranty on, I'ts being 1 1/2 weeks since. Dealer says it's a complicated & time consuming job. Is it really that complicated of a job? I've replaced water pumps on previous cars and is not more than couple of hours...
OK. I got into the engine bay and the rattling sound was the water pump. Car still have 1 1/2 month warranty left .so I contacted the only porsche dealership in Puerto Rico, They picked it up this morning.
Yesterday I noticed a rattling sound in my engine compartment. Mine is a 2006, 2.7, manual with 43Kmiles. Its a constant noise but more noticeable when idle. From sitting on driver's seat, I can hear it coming from center- towards right of engine bay. I'm suspecting water pump or fan/blower. So far no overheating. I will get in engine compartment this coming weekend to inspect.
Time has come to replace my 2006 non S Boxster spark plugs. All I've researched refers to Bosch FGR 6 KQE 4 Tip Spark Plug. However some folks I've talked to do not recomend 4 tips. What should I use? Anything else I should replace?
Thanks to all of you that had given me words of wisdom. This is what I'm going to do: 1- Buy and replace air & cabin filter myself. This coming saturday. (I have a reason to stay home). So when when I take the car back to dealer(next friday), they can't say is needed and if they do? we'll see.... and I'll let you all know. 2- Have dealer perform regular maintenance=$330.00 and just the brake fluid because it is listed on the additional maintenance every 2 yrs, even though I still think is way to much. This way dealer have records of maintenenance and warranty doesn't get voided. 3- Have wheel alignmet done from the guy I allways trusted. 4- Forget about coolant flush & wheel balancing for now. And there still are some creeps that say that a BOXSTER is a poor man's Porsche..........JA JA JA Like I tell everyone IS NOT OWNING ONE, IS HAVING THE PLEASURE TO DRIVE ONE. Gracias from Puerto Rico
My 2006 987 just turned out 15k miles, so It's time to visit the Porsche dealership. I made the appointment. The service advisor told me that the following needs to be done: 1-15k maintenance @$330.00. 2-Brake fluid Coolant flush @$265.00 3-Air & AC filter replacement @$600.00 4-Wheel balance & Front end alignment @$205.00 Total is $1,400.00 My mechanics knowledge & skills are above average & don't mind doing it. Don't mind dealer performing#1 & brake fluid flush 'cause don't like dealing with brake fluid/ bleeding. Is it OK for me to perform coolant flush & item#3 & have #4 done by my tires/alignment guy? Will it void warranty? Thanks
Its time to replace my 2006 boxter 14k miles rear tires. It came with Conti sport II. Its my first experience with conti tires. I live in hot & humid Puerto Rico, where asphalt roads are rough & full of holes. I've had bad luck with Michellin & Pirelli on previous cars, however Hancook's Ventus made the job exceptionally. I will appreciate any feedback/ recommendations Thanks
