  1. This was my first year with a CPO 2005 Boxster S. Great fun in Colorado except here, when you get a ticky, you do the washy. No wiggle room! Anyway the Boxster is tucked away in the (sort of) heated garage for the winter and monthly I start it up and let it run until thoroughly warmed up, which I figure is when the engine compartment fans kicks on (about 45 minutes). After the first time and sucking down too much CO cause the door wasn't open all the way, I got some 7" diameter x 6' flexible aluminum duct to route the exhaust out. I got it fitted nicely around the dual exhaust tips, routed it out the door, and viola, no fumes. Except, the second time I did this the "Check Engine- Take to Workshop" came on. So I check this forum and it looked like no problem, but I was still concerned so I finally got a response from the Albuquerque dealer PSM. Here's what he said. Check the tightness of the gas cap and the oil cap. Likely the issue is moisture in the exhaust from ethanol in the gas, my not having a fan sucking on the duct to aid exhaust flow, and just idling. He said that when I can get out on the road to blow it out and it will be okay. I asked if the warning on the dash will go away immediately, and he said no. It will take 12 cycles of starting up and turning off the car for it to reset from when the "issue" goes away. Just thought I'd share.
