Guys, Thank you very much for your information. Invaluable. I'm still not sure if I'll get the Boxster mentioned, but will get one soon and will be searching these forums for good information on how to maintain and enhance. Cheers, Darren
Nah, I used to do my own work on cars, but I'd probably get a shop to replace the boots based upon what you've said. Thanks that's good advice regarding replacing all four. I'm much more worried about the oil leaks though. I'm not sure if this is a definite sign to not buy this car. I have no idea if any of these leaks are common or sympoms of very expensive problems. I'm hoping someone on these posts will know.
Hi, I'm looking to buy a Boxster S (02-03) and have found one fairly cheap 2002. The car has previously been in an accident of some kind, but has been repaired properly. A got a car inspection performed and the following issues were outlined: 1. Oil leak coming from both rocker covers (fairly minor leak) 2. Oil leak coming from centre of engine block area (fairly minor leak) 3. Outter drive shaft boot split (I've read this is fairly common, and needs replacing) 4. Some knocking noise in front and rear suspension during test drive The inspector said he thought the car was actually in pretty condition. And I've driven the car and it drives well and looks to be in fairly good condition. (1) The car has been garaged and not driven for two years prior to the inspection, which I thought may have led to the drying out of the rocker engine gaskets, and hence oil leaks. (2) I'm fairly worried about centre of engine block leak, as nothing is cheap to rectify on a Boxsters engine from what I've read in these forums. And I haven't found any mention of this issue in the forums. (4) I think the inspector was being overly fussy with this, as it looks like the car has the original suspension etc. Thoughts? As the car is selling for a responbly good price, I wanted to get some feedback as to whether I should be alarmed at the issues above and run a mile, or consider purchasing. And on purchasing whether these need immediate attention. Thanks in advance, Darren
