Update... I got a brake fluid flush, oil change and replaced the o2 sensor. We are looking good. Check Engine light is off. The mechanic that only does Porsches recommended that I consider getting an intermidate shaft bearing replacement. He nothing is wrong with the car, but Porsche made the 97-04 Boxster with poor intermidate shaft bearings. He showed me that they start to get dent and broken and shoot small metallic parts into the engine when they go. He told me that he has seen Boxsters do this at 40k and he seen people that have owned the cars with 150k with no problems at all. Since I bought this car used and dont truely know the history, should I consider this?
Thanks... I will keep this updated
Thanks, I read somewhere that o2 sensors are about 130 each and if you replace one, you should replace them all. Pretty easy to do your self or expereinced mechanics needed? I am an average handy man around cars.
mkurdziel started following Just bought my 1st Porsche... I already have a CEL!
I just bought my 1st Porsche!!!! Its a 99 Boxster with 75k. I had to drive about 120 miles to get it. So on the return trip of 120 miles... Lets say 90 miles into it, the CEL comes on. I went to AutoZone and they coded it as P-1126 and P-0150. Could this be the O2 Sensor just needs to be replaced or did I just buy a car that is about to cost me 3k in the first week of me owning it? I have done tons of research on this and from what I have read it could be the MAF or AOS or a a number of things... Any help or suggestions would be appreciated... Thanks Matt
