  1. Ok so I drove the car today around 93 degrees today ran the a/c, and drove fast pushed hard couple times and all the while had the breather valve open. The temp never did get above 210 degrees and did not see any coolant come out of overflow hose on ground or on car. When I went to close the breather valve it did not want to close (guessing because it was still warm?) after it cooled off the valve closed just fine and easy. Anymore suggestions on things to try or was this just a unusual thing that might never occur again?
  2. How do you test the cap? And nobody thinks this could be the shock, or is it too much fluid for a shock?
  3. Just checked my coolant cap and 5 years ago I replaced an 00 cap with an 01 cap, now I hear there is an even newer one? Should I try it or am I wasting my time with it? It doesn't appear to be leaking from near the cap but didn't know if that would cause overflow from the hose too.
  4. Thank You ericinboca, I saw the wire on the that cap today and was wondering about it but never did see that overflow hose with all the looking around I did underneath the car. Will top off and try this!
  5. When I took the coolant cap off today it had a good seal on it but I can't find where the overflow hose is. and this may seem stupid but what do you mean by breather valve?- hose to AOS?
  6. Can't remember right now but I did replace it with the newer one it's not the original. I can't find any sign of coolant from around the tank top, bottom, or cap. I pulled the carpet back and felt all around underneath the tank and it is very clean on bottom and top.
  7. Drove my 2000 2.7 boxster 2 weeks ago (very hot outside that day 109 degrees) parked it untill the other day and saw a 4 inch puddle of fluid on the garage floor leaking down inside of right back wheel, could not tell the color because it was mixed with dirt from under car. Looked under the car and the inside of the back right wheel has covered with this fluid, but only could see the fluid was kinda clear looking. Pulled tire off and noticed the entire control arm and part of the brake lines and brake pad indicator lines where moist and the bottom part of the shock and wheel bearing assembly was coated with moist dirt. I checked that rear brake line and master cylinder everything looked good. It didn't look like any place oil could be coming from, so I thought it might be from the shock, but it was alot of fluid and the suspension and shock seems to still work like it should. So I talked to a local Porsche mechanic he told me he saw something like that before on another boxster and was coolant. I checked my coolant and was a little low about 1/2 inch below min in reservoir tank, but I can't find where it could be coming from unless it is spraying from somewhere. I ran the car today with a/c on for awhile could not find any coolant leak under car or under reserve tank, could all this fluid be coming from the shock up at the top and spraying/leaking down when I drive and still have enough in it right now to still have a decent ride? Could not get any decent pics of this.
  8. so this is what seems to be the problem, the cable came off the wheel behind the regulator and I can't stretch it back. Has anyone done this before? Or is it just shot and I need a new regulator?
  9. Right now mine is very hard to push down and will not go back up on its own. Another strange thing I noticed half the time when the door is open and I push the switch to make the window go up if it goes up all the way and I am still pushing the switch the window will start to go back down automatically :unsure:. Thought some micro switch might be going out but there sure is a lot of clunking and grinding going on when the window goes up and down. I do have a Bentley manual, doesn't look as complicated as I thought but any thoughts or suggestions I will take. I will try to look for that harbor freight tool.
  10. I 've got a 2000 boxster 2.7 went to get in it the other day and driver window did not drop when opening the door. Started it up and the window went up and down using the controller switch but the more I used it the scary sounds started like a grinding and stretching sound in the door. I tried to see if the window was going up and down at an angle but did not look like it to me ( some say this is a obvious sign of failed regulator). The window does sometimes drops really fast about four inches mid-way when operating with the window switch down and moves erratically sometimes when going up or down. I have done many searches on this forum to find info and would like to know anything I can about this before opening the door panel up or ordering a new regulator.
  11. Just to let everyone know if you have an O'Reilly Auto Parts near you Mobil 1 0w-40 is on sale for $4.99 quart. Everywhere else it's $7.49 a quart where I live and can't even find it at wally world anymore. Hope it is OK to post that here.
  12. Who's Pedro? Where's his site? Never mind just found it thanks for the help!
  13. My radio control knobs are sticky from the outer coating wearing off and was wondering if you could just replace the knobs or if anyone has tried to put a new coating on them with success? I have tried to contact a becker distributor but cannot get a response hoping for suggestions, Thanx
  14. Had to come to a fast hard stop because a little ricer in front of me showing out and heard a loud noise thought is was my brakes so I stopped suddenly again when no one else was near me and realized my horn started fluttering sounding (going off and on fast). Has anybody had a problem like this? Don't know if I should start looking for problems by the horn itself and its wires or on the steering wheel. 2000 Boxster 2.7L
  15. No check engine light on yet. I have 45,000 miles at the most on the spark plugs I bought it when it had 39,000 miles on it. I ordered new plugs with AOS to be installed, but the idle just drops on 1st start of the day. Even if the car has sat 8 hours after first start it only does on completely cold engine. It drops to about 300 rpms after about 5 seconds after starting sounds like its going to die then usually jumps back up by itself, sometimes I give it a little gas and it will then idle smoothly.
