  1. I did clear it. I'm going to hook up the Durametric to see if it came back. Thanks.
  2. Does anyone have anyone have any insight how I would get a code of 5525 when this isn't the norm for a Boxster?
  3. Actually after taking a closer look at the snap shot of the fault code I posted above, it also directs the fault to part number 996.355.755.05.That's a 2002 Boxster ABS pump.
  4. I also had a separate issue with my throttle body sticking after cleaning it. This is actually why I hooked up the Durametric. It's a 74mm throttle body so it's not a stock Boxster part. I got a few other codes along with it..I got that sorted out though..
  5. Durametric..I do have the Softronic ECU flash. Now I'm wondering..What vehicles have a code sequence this high?
  6. The code hasn't returned as of yet but I did get a code 5525. Through some research I've seen this code can be triggered from a bad MAF. My MAF is pretty old but it seems to work good. Also have been doing some work on my intake where I clean my MAF so I'm not sure if it's related.
  7. Hey guys, On the Durametric system there's an option to recalibrate the steering angle sensor. I tried it out today and it didnt work. I also got a ABS light on the dashboard. The fault code was Control Module Faulty 4607. I cleared the code and it hasn't come back for now (I havent driven the car yet). Any ideas on this? Is this an indication that my ABS module is faulty? This is for a 2002 Boxster S. Thanks in advance!
  8. Yea, those clamps are a must. Glad you got done!
  9. Yes. Initially, I was going to have a used engine installed. They source 2 engines which they felt were unacceptable. In the end, they took some parts from one of the sourced engines, some parts from my engine and various new parts (New crankshaft main bearings, New connecting rod main bearings, New connecting rod hardware, New timing chains, New timing guide rails including tensioner paddle, New IMS bearing and DOF, New oil separator, New oil cooler, gaskets and seals) . The crankshaft was from the used engine. I have most of details in my emails...
  10. Hey Guys, I know its been a while but I wanted to follow up on the end result of my engines issues. The diagnosis that I was given was I had a cracked cylinder head which lead to engine failure either by lack of oil or oil contamination. I attached a few pictures of the failure and the engine itself (cracked head, damaged connecting rod and crankshaft. TuneRS Motorsports in Coral Springs did an excellent job of rebuilding my engine. Car runs strong. I added their 4" underdrive pully, bypass pipes, Softronic software to my EVO intake and GHL muffler. I have a 997 plenum/74mm in the garage ready to be install then next, headers! Thanks everyone for you input!
  11. I was going to take pictures of how clear intermixed was getting after the new oil cooler and flushing but my hands were too dirty at the time..
  12. Here's some pictures of the chocolate shake and the then the oil that was drain. The oil looks pretty free of coolant to me. What do you think?
  13. There wasn't. I drained the oil and there wasn't any. I changed the oil cooler and the chocolate milk shake started to go away. I'm not sure what happen but I'm having it checked out, so I'll know for sure. The oil was low maybe a third of a quart when it happen. When I first notice my oil was low, it was more than a quart. I'm having it checked by TuneRS Motorsports in Coral Springs. Stay tuned.
