  1. I have a 2000 base Boxster with 5 speed manual transmission. One of the ball joints on the linkages popped off. This caused me to limp home with only 3rd and 4th gear available. I popped the joint back on but I was wondering if there is a clip missing the holds the linkage in place? The linkage that popped off was at the top in the photo. Its the one that runs vertical. Does anyone know the part number for the clip if that's what is missing? Thank you, Scott
  2. The problem is gone for now. I have no idea what happened.
  3. Ok JFP, P1118 Porsche fault code 4-Heating power O2S behind cat. c. bank 2 P1117 Porsche fault code 14-Heating power O2S behind cat. c. bank 1 P1130 Porsche fault code 361- Oxygen sensing adaptation idle range bank 2 P0139 Porsche fault code 17- Sensor aging behind cat. conv. cylinder (1-3) P0159 Porsche fault code 23- Sensor aging behind cat. conv. cylinder (4-6) Scott
  4. Thank you Mikefocke for the great info on how this all works. I knew the purpose of the catalytic converter but now I better understand how it functions. I need to check some readings with my Durametric, hopefully I find a solution.
  5. It smells like coolant and is way to much liquid to be condensation.
  6. Here's a better picture and I circled the drain pipe. Just forgot to rotate it so the pipe is pointing downward. Scott
  7. 2000 2.7 Boxster w 150K miles. I have some sort of coolant leak. Its coming from a drain tube located by the rear passenger side. Any idea where this drain tube leads to? The tank in the rear trunk looks fine. The cap and pressure relief valve are fairly new. Please see attached photo. Thank you, Scott
  8. More questions here. I'm trying to figure out exactly what's going on. I've done a little research about catalytic converters and how they work. I've also started looking at actual values on my Durametric software for pre and post O2 readings. What should I be seeing? I know these are vague questions but I'm just starting to learn about this stuff. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Scott
  9. If it is the pre-catalytic converter that needs to be replaced, what will need to happen? Does this mean I take it to a exhaust shop and they remove the old one and weld in a new one? What typically happens in this case?
  10. I have a 2000 2.7 manual with 151K miles. The car has been running fine but shows a couple of CEL error codes. P0430 Code 45- Cat conversion bank 2 and P0420 Porsche fault code 40. What do these codes mean? And what is causing them? Thank you, Scott
  11. I have a 2000 base Boxster that I'd like to fit with 19x8 F and 19x 9.5 R factory Caymen S Lobster Claw wheels. I once had a 2003 Boxster S and put the same wheels on. I did have to use a 5mm spacer and longer wheel studs up front if I recall. Does anyone know if I can do this on my 2000 Boxster? Regards, Scott
