  1. Glyn Thanks, After the replies i was going to have the throttle cleaned but how would i get to the idle control valve without removing the throttle, . do you have any pictures or diagrams that i can use to see where exactly it is, also where would those two small bolts be located exactly?
  2. oh okay thank you :thumbup: u was wondering what made it different
  3. thanks thorn. i know its kind of irrelevent since i dont have a 2000 but what exactly constitutes the E-gas cars ( like what is the E-gas)
  4. alright thanks for all the tips. im not there right now but i will let you know which way would be easier to get the top off so thanks for the step by step on that one. and Alright ill look into having the throttle body cleaned. i was going to do it when i first got it but compeltely forgot about it. as for the MAF there are two MAF parts thats i can get here off hand . they are both bosch parts but one part # is 0280218055 and the other is # 0280218145. okay so i just looked and those are not the parts for the 99 boxster. I found a bosch part # 0280217007 for 174.89 (msrp 285.42) and i believ
  5. Okay well against advice i bought a 99 porsche back in august because it was in great condition etc. I have been having it worked on here and there when i have a chance since august (both diy and mechanic for more advanced things) So far the fixes have included serpentine belt, fuel filter, oil filter and oil change, master brake cylinder, air filter, wheels, both window regulators, and steering wheel bracket.Every now and then we have had problems with the top not wanting to come down but for the most part it always works fine(yes i know about making sure the brake is all the way up etc) but
  6. okay one last question and i dont know exactly since i wont be back in town for another week and will only ahve about a week to fix it. If there is a possibility that there is not an airbag in the steering wheel, would the horn still be able to be used? or does it need an airbag. and if so where would i be able to get a replacement on short notice( keep in mind i do not believe there are any porsches in the el paso junkyards or such) thanks for any help :)
  7. Hey, so im still a relatively new member hear and looking to contribute within the next month hopefully once i get my car finally registered and everything.I bought a 99 porsche boxster a few months ago and have fixed majority of the car problems by myself and looking to replace the fuel filter before christmas. Now for my problem at hand so i can finally get it registered and tagged. When i was home for thanksgiving working on it i started going through fuses to fix several problems and found that the horn fuse was missing. So i put it in and the horn started going off like crazy so i remove
  8. hey i know its been a year since you posted this bust just in case it was never resolved. i was having the exact same issues, it would lower on occasion when i open my door, but console switches , interior car lights, and the alarm / passenger system did not lock at all. it ended up being as simple as changing out the blown fuse. i believe you have to change out the fuse for C3, it requires a 15A fuse. hope this helps
  9. also for some reason when i lock it with the key manually , the lock soud for the car comes on but it doesnt lock. does yours do the same?
  10. @txhokie cars in el paso but im in lubbock right now but ill look into it thanks. yah for the most part after already putting several grand in just for the tires, mastercylinder and the other part im trying to find the best way without parts for labor killing me again @4agdtym oh yah i already knew that about the lever having to be up and the light indiciator. it only works about half the time but at least its coming up now thanks.
  11. To my knowledge no, and theres no physical signs of water damge
  12. battery is a year old it was tested and they said it was still good. some suggestions that a few friends said was that it might just be the spacing of the spark plugs. is that possible its causing the low idling. and yah for the top for some reason it goes up and down fine sometimes and other times it just completely refuses to respond so idk whats going on about that. but the main focus right now is the low idling causing it to stall. if its the vacuum leak or fuel pump how much do those usually run and how much for labor usually or can it it be a DIY project. thanks guys
  13. heres an update the mechanic replaced the master brake cylinder and the brake booster pump and now the braking problem is completely fixed and works like a charm, also got the wheels changed out and alligned. now for the other problems. the side windows are still not working. the right one clicks when i press the button and it does not go down so yes its the regulator. but the drivers window when i press down theres no sound and when i press up the doesnt press down at all whereas the passengers does, plusthe drivers side i can pull up and down about half way with my hand, so what could th
