  2. Can you post the actual fault code numbers and what diagnostic tool did you use? I am using Durametric to retrieve fault code. "Heating and Air Conditioning: 31 Fresh Air Blower Fault" It is what it gave me. Nothing more.
  3. Hi Loren, I just got Fresh air blower fault. It didnt say low or high voltage. What should I start with? Also I have another error code Litronic headlights HBA current fault codes 1: Engine path left what does it mean?
  4. An update on the recent work on my car. Before I saw your response I have cleaned my MAF sensor as I heard that after AOS is fixed its recommended to clean MAF. But one doubt that I had with the cleaning of MAF is, I saw a sensor element(like a diode) attached on top of the plastic piece. Can I spray on that too also? Or do I have to just spray in those two holes as directed by pelicanparts. Anyways even though I have cleaned it I didn't see much improvement in the performance. One thing which I forgot was to disconnect batter(reset DME). My idle was really bad before. Now its considerably bet
  5. Hi guys, changed the coolant tank. My old coolant tank had a small hole and was leaking. Anyways though replacement in coolant tank didn't solve my performace problem. But recently I drove 300 miles and after I came back I started to see engine hesitation a lot. Finally the day came where my dashboard started showing check engine light. Took it to my mechanic. Surprisingly its AOS failure. Read error codes and the tool showed both o2 banks as fried. He did a glove test and he figured out right away that AOS was the culprit. Now I have replaced my AOS and my performace kinda came back. So happy
  6. Go to this page - see option 1. http://www.durametric.com/buyus.aspx Does that tool come with a manual? Also I have a question. My friend has a bently manual. Is it worth it for my boxster?
  7. you said 287 right??? Its showing 347. Is it the same thing that you are referring to?? http://www.durametric.com/content/2001-porsche-boxster-986.aspx
  8. yes the check engine light comes and then goes out once I start the car. But I wonder can this happen with MAF failure, "performs well at the beginning and once temp raises performs like crap" Also one more thing, if I switch on air conditioner performance is pretty bad.
  9. Does any porsche dealers read the error codes for free?? Mine is an old one and dont have a warranty on it. What about advanced auto parts or autozone. Do they have regular reader or Durametric stuff???
  10. Hi, I have a boxster 2001 with 75000 on it. My cars performance keeps on failing and these days its becoming bad. I have been going through this link http://www.andysautosport.com/hi_flow_catalytic_converter/porsche_boxster.html where its written, "If your Boxster engine seems to be losing power or your temperature gauge reads a little high, one possible culprit could be that a rich condition is feeding excessive unburned fuel into the catalytic converter, which can overheat it as well as damage it." My cars temperature is a little high if I drive for more than 20 min, few times when
  11. Hi Everyone, Today I took my car to my mechanic to take a look at the vibration on my steering. It seems I need a new set of tires. But what I have noticed was my rear wheels are hard to turn than front tires. ALso I have noticed something else, after a ride for 30-45 min when I park the car, I could feel more heat coming from rear wheels comared to front. When I touched the rotors they are hot compared to the front rotors.(FYI I replaced rear brakes and rotors few months before and my front are really old). I know that the car has a mid engine but just want to make sure if somethi
  12. Thank you guys for all your responses. I had been so stressed out with my car coz its taking too much of time and not letting me think about my work. But I stopped thinking about my car and now I am back with more problems. My coolant tank is totally empty. I cannot see any traces of coolant from outside. But when I called a reputed mechanic in San Antonio( Jones Autowerks) he asked me to check if the coolant light is on. But unfortunately its off. So he is like there is still some coolant. Previously if I dont drive the car for few days and I start it used to release white smoke at th
  13. Hi Everyone, I have a boxster 01, 5 speed manual, 70k milage. I got it from a person who sold it around 64K. I did a 60K service on it. This is my first car so didnt knew much when I brough it. After I brought the car I noticed that around 3000 RMP it shakes. So after some research changed front engine mount. Also did wheel balancing too. Still small amount of vibration can be felt under my seat when the RPM is around 3000. Have the same problem when enging idles. Recently I have been facing performance loss. I dont rev upto higher RPM's. The best I do is until 4000RPM. But I like quick
