I wish I knew more about cars!
Cool, I will give the car a check over tomorrow. I will put a bottle of fuel system cleaner through it too. Any ideas on which fault code readers are worth buying? I have seen some on ebay but am unsure what to look for? Thanks, Dave.
Hi, I was out in my boxster (1998 2.5 manual) today for the first time in a few weeks. When I started the car it ran fine, however once I got on to the motorway and put the foot down a bit, the car had a kind of hiccup (maybe a misfire) at around 3500-4000 rpm and 70mph.

If i pop off the joints at the back which hold the rear clam in place, then operate the rocker switch the roof will go down, and it will come back up again. It just seems to be when the
