  1. Kind of what I was thinking too...Appreciate the response.
  2. This is only my second post so again pls be kind.. I have been enjoying my 05 boxster S until in our local paper in Canada I read in the Wheels section an article about how great the 05 Boxster was as a used car, lots of positive points and only one negative "total engine annihilation"... so I have been reading about the IMS failures etc..couple of questions my car is an 05 with 26,000 K ( or 15,000 miles) 6 speed. I understand that the engine could be different (regarding the failure rate)in 05 (how can I tell ) I read about getting the bearing replaced.. anyone know someone in Ontario that may do it? Or one close to a border (buffalo) that would do it. I have full porsche warranty until next March. Any other advice other than drive it hard until MArch then sell ?
  3. Thanks , I kept thinking about the clutch in idea and kept thinking maybe I wasnt pushing it all the way down, but the two times I have stalled... I kept trying everything, key out , key in , pump the clutch and then it would start after some combination.. In the meantime you are sitting in one very nice car blocking traffic while KIA's honk at you as they go around.. I havent tried to stall since I have had all these suggestions, I will try to stall before it goes away and post my unscientific results.. Thanks for all the postings.. PS if you store yours, any suggestions on what I need to do.. I am getting the oil changed this week, I have access to an underground garage but was planning on storing it in my house garage which is not heated... thoughts?
  4. Yeah I know but I get a lot of snow. Any ideas on how I get it ready for storage?
  5. Thanks, unfortunately I guess I will have to stall it again to try that.. Will try it this week and let you know.. Appreciate the quick answer. 1 more month and the car goes in storage for the winter :(
  6. First , I am new to this posting thing, so I apologize in advance if I am screwing something up. I bought a 2005 Boxster S 6 mos ago, drives great , low mileage. Occassionally if I stall (yes it happens, usually coming out of a garage and I dont want to bottom out) I cant start the car. I turn the key back and turn it on and there is nothing.. Is there a trick, I have no problem ever starting the car any other time. I go back and forth a few times and it starts, but I am not sure if I am doing something with the key that makes it start.. Please if is a dumb question, be gentle. txs
