I want to thank every one who hleped me with this problem and yes I removed the cap and the noise is gone . I am going to keep it loss for just a bit untill I get the part . it's about 180 to fix which is not bad at all
yes as soon as I open the throttle it goes a way . but it only happen when the car is right on the normal temp level . once I turn it off it does make a sound like fading air Whistle.
Squealing noise coming from the engine compartment behind the seats?? I been hearing a squealing noise for the past few weeks . I stopped driving the car as soon as heard it and I left it for a while.the Noise is more like the ribbed drive belt but I took it out and I started the car for a half a minute and the noise came back. The noise start when the temp is 180 (between 1- 8). It fade if I press on the paddle but as soon as it’s in ideal and the engine within the normal temperature the squealing starts.. the car is fine in term of performance and no engine light check .when I removed the belt and I run the car the noise start shortly after … and once I turn it off I get this fading squealing noise like a fading Whistle. With ribbed drive belt removed while checking the sources of the noise would that eliminate The possibility of having a faulty water pump since the only pulley rotating is the crankshaft pulley? Please let me know if anyone had that problem before Thank you all 97 boxster tip with 108000 mile
one time I was raising the spoiler up and down manually then it just stop working . I was trying to get it to the right hight but for the same reason the spoiler got stuck. when you push the manual but nothing happen no sound . I also switched relay 3 and 9 but nothing happen too. I have no idea were to look . i hear some of the guys got it to go down but hocking up a 12 battery to the motor or something but I have not idea where that is . If some one could tell me the process in detail that would be great thank you all
I been having this problem for a while now and it's really annoying . I have fitted my car with after market xenon lights and it works great .the only problem is the driver side light is a lot stronger than the other one .I have bought another headlight ,new xneon bulb but I still have the same problem .Can any one help please . I it also the same deal for the fog light 97 boxster with orange marker lights Thank you all
it failed about the same time . the dealer told me that the maduale is new but a short circt cause the door actuator to fail . I could hear the noise when I lock the doors by the remote but it does not lock . I have to lock both ways with the key . If I am posting this topic at wrong form please some one tell me to move it THANK YOU ALL :D
I just talked with dealer any they told me that everything is fine with car but the door latch for the driver side is not working so it's need to be replaced .any Ideas on how to replace it . from scale 1-10 how hard is to replace ???
I did the following modification in my car and I must say ,the quality of the sound is great Alpine Amplifiers MRP-F250 speaker SPR-13S Head unit CDA-9887 ( the head unit works great with CD and radio but when you integrate your ipod into the headunit you would have a hard time going from one song to another) Ipod jack I also don't have the rear speaker and I am happy with my sound system .
I would check the drain tubes . I think you should take it to the dealer ASAP . In my case the drains were packed , if the water leaks into the driver side , your car will not start and short ciructe will cause the door lock to brake and that alone cost over 2K to fix. All I want say is to take it the dealer and make sure you put the cover on it for now
I was checking the battry and I found this thing which look like it got disconnected from some where . any one know what that is ??? I tied to post a pic but I could not . its a colorless rubber pipe . Its near the battry .
Hi guys. It was really cold for the past week and the car was covered in snow but I did start the car few times just to make sure everything is fine and when I first tried to start it. The car died immediately but then I pressed on the gas a littlie and the car started. Yesterday the snow was melted of the car so I tried to start the car and I could get it to start the engine fires then die in less than a second it (cranks but will start). I tried to press on the gas but nothing. I could hear the fuel pump buzzing and the battery was replaced a year go and I could turn in the headlight and its not week ,and the fuel tank is quarter full. One of the things I noticed when the car was covered in snow is that the throttle was harsh and if you press it will stick but now it feels normal. -------------------------- 97 boxster 85000 tiptronic
