    2000 Porsche Boxster S
  1. I have a 2000 Porsche Boxster S that I recently took to a Smog Test Only place here in California to complete a smog check in order to regsister my car for the next year. My car failed the test as a gross polluter. I need to fix the problem. Details: The "Check Engine" light was not on when I went for the test. Car was/is running fine. Recentlty started to smell odor coming from car when outside the car after driving. Don't smell anything in the car when driving. Have noticed small occasional oil drops under car under engine. The only other change in my car is after a repair to my right front fender due to someone hitting me - it is almost impossible to fill up the tank to the "full" level on the guage. The gas pump/handle itself when filling the car clicks off like every 10 seconds - so it takes forever to fill up the tank. I need to find out what is causing this - perhaps something not put back together properly by the body shop??? The test says that I passed these areas: PCV Catalytic Converter Fuel Injection Vaccuum Line Connection Fuel Cap Functional MIL Pump Air Injection Ignition Spark Controls 02 Sensors and Connectors Other Emissions Related Fuel Evaporative Controls Fuel Tank Cap Visual Wiring of Other Sensors or Switches Liquid Fuel Leaks The test says that these results are as listed as N/A Visual EGR Fuel Evap Test Thermostatic Air Cleaner Functional EGR Fill Pipe Restrictor Carburetor Ignition Timing TDC The ASM Emission Test Results are: @ 15mph RPM - 1842 MEAS CO2% - 12.27 MEAS 02% - 0.00 HC (PPM) MAX 56 HC (PPM) GP 274 HC (PPM) MEAS 185 CO% MAX - 0.51 CO% GP - 2.01 CO% MEAS - 4.28 NO (PPM) MAX - 443 NO (PPM) GP - 1930 NO (PPM) MEAS - 15 Result - Gross Polluter @ 25mph RPM - 1916 MEAS CO2% - 12.25 MEAS 02% - 0.00 HC (PPM) MAX - 40 HC (PPM) GP - 224 HC (PPM) MEAS - 153 CO% MAX - 0.49 CO% GP - 1.99 CO% MEAS - 4.31 NO (PPM) MAX - 730 NO (PPM) GP - 1730 NO (PPM) MEAS - 15 Result - Gross Polluter Now my check engine light comes on from time to time and then goes away. The OBD Code that comes up - even with no "Check Engine" light on - is P1128. I've seen alot of posts for when P1128 comes up along with P1130 - but none yet with only P1128 coming up. I've read that it's a good idea to check/clean MAP - which I will do this afternoon - but I'm wondering - with all the info/details above - does anyone know or have an opinion if the problem can be zero'ed in to one thing only or possible - or will many things need to be checked tested? The problem is - and maybe some of you have been in the same situation - I don't have the funds that I had when I bought the car and when I did I'd take it into a qualified shop. But times are tough and don't currently have those kind of funds. I can/will repair whatever is necessary - but I'm trying to avoid buying/trying many parts/labor that is not necessary. With all the data above - would appreciate any advice/suggestions/opinions! Thanks, Harry
