They pulled the voltage readings from the MAF even when open throttle,it would barely top 2 volt....they sprayed it with cleaner....2.5volts full throttle. It should be near 5 volts full throttle...MAF is bad. They said the values though for each side were the same.
blinkwatt replied to Loren's topic in Work on Cars (Sacramento/Elk Grove/Rocklin/Roseville Area)Replacing the AOS isn't hard and anyone could help you with it(if I can make it I will help you). F.Y.I. the bellow part of the AOS is a spring clamp. I'd suggest ordering some high grade screw type clamps. I've been told by several shops that the OEM metal clamp ones don't hold their strength when removed. It makes it super easy to install the new AOS.
blinkwatt replied to rbizet's topic in Work on Cars (Sacramento/Elk Grove/Rocklin/Roseville Area)The AOS is a quick 1-3 hour job on a Boxster and I'd be more then willing to help you out with it. I've done one once already,no biggie. Now if it's a 996........
Simple they pay people off. In Sacramento my friend gets away with it by, knowing someone at the DMV($300) or paying the shop twice as much and they pass it. I've been warned about my Top Speed muffler........I'm wondering what would happen if I install the Fabspeed 2nd cat bypass pipes if shop would even know.
I'd like to thank the Borden's for hosting the event and their willingness to work with my mistake. Your air gun is awesome! Kirk THANK YOU! I really appreciate your help. There is no way possible I could have done that without you. It was nice to meet you and Alex. Loren thanks for testing the car out for me. Nice to finally put a face with a member who has been helping me out and giving me advice for awhile. I was also nice to see some other familiar faces I've met in the past. These are the types of events that give people confidence to work on their cars......unless you forget to torque lug bolts :D. If you ever want to learn about your car or see some neat cars just head out to a Work On Card Day!
OK. Finally problem solved: 1) I had 3 bad O2 sensors, and I know why. Well actually I got 3 after market O2 sensors "$18 each- I was curious". I cut the old sensors connectors and reconnected the wires from new sensors to old connectors. Now I am not sure if the sensors are not good for boxster’s application, or if I made a mistake and miss-wired. As a solution I got 3 new O2 sensors and that resolved the issue. "I shall get the after market O2 sensors try and re-wire them see if I can make them work". Car did not run rich any more, no smelly exhaust or black smoke. 2) The second part of the problems was caused by a leak in the cold Air intake hose connecting air throttle body to air intake cone. All the after market hoses I purchased "as much as $375" did not work and kept leaking air. I think they did not work because they were designed to fit a car with e-gas air throttle “which points opposite direction from none e-gas. At the end I got 3" aluminum pipe + 2 x 90 degree silicone hoses + 2 straight silicone hoses and D-clamps. Customizing cold air intake hose is the way to go. Looks nice, fits perfect. No more Air leaks and no more CE warning!! "p.s i shall add pics later in my '2.5tip to 3.4 conversion' post" A serious thank you to Loren and Todd, you guys rock Thanks again Ali :renntech: Do you mind posting the info on the generic o2 sensors that you used? Where did you buy them? Did you do any special type of connection from the old wires - new?
A bump to keep to keep it going. I posted on PPBB,hopefully a couple of members sign up. Has anyone posted a link to the event on 6-speed,Rennlist & 986forum?
I will be there.
Loren, Is it o.k. if Kirk and I swap out springs if we use jacks and jack stands? - Kirk, I don't mind coming early at all. I have 2 jacks and 2 jack stands. I can bring those. If you would bring your spring compressor that would be AWESOME. I don't have too many tools either so if there is anything special that you used when swapping yours out could you bring those as well?
