ibrahim93 started following Smoking 2001 Boxster and 986 S problem at idle, engine won't rev and shakes, battery discon
Hey everyone, I am in desperate need of advise! I have a 2001 boxster 2.7 and it will not idle. When I first bought it, it would not start and was leaking oil; there was oil inside the intake and smoked like crazy. I have changed the aos, spark plugs, oil this weekend but it continues to leak oil from the exhaust. It pops the code p0300 p0304 p0305 p0306, it will not stay on unless i hold the throttle all the way down. when i put it in gear it slowly moves then shuts off. Does anyone have any idea of what to do next??
Today I replaced the aos, oil, air filter, and spark plugs. I've check the intake after reving it and there is no oil inside. It still smokes, but is a likely cause of oil still in the exhaust. I now encountered a new problem, P0304, 305, 306. It cannot idle without reving at a higher rpm. I plan on checking the coils in the morning, does any have any idea of another problem beside coil packs?
Hey everyone. Like I posted in a previous topic, I have smoke blowing out of my exhaust in tremendous amounts. At first I thought it was bad rings, but after some research it more likely seems to be a bad aos. I have already removed the faulty part and plan on ordering a new one this weekend. Since I was already doing work to it, I figured I would do a compression test anyways. The results are as follows: 1: 125PSI 2:140PSI 3:140PSI 4:140PSI 5:120PSI 6:130PSI. Do those numbers look alright or within tolerance? The vehicle has 75k mies on it, its an 01 boxster 2.7L with triptonic. The test was done dry and on a cold engine. The engine would not stay running, so I could not do it once it was warmed up. All of the spark plugs were removed and the throttle was wide opened. As a back ground for the car, this is my first porsche and I purchased it in the condition it is in. Which is non-running. It starts, but does not idle, blows a lot of smoke out of the exhaust, and had puddles of oil in the intake as well as leaking from all over the exhaust ( this is why I concluded it has a bad aos). If anyone has any info that might be helpful, please let me know. Like I said earlier, this is my first experience with a porsche; on another note I do know my way around a vehicle fairly well.
Today I removed the aos, is there any way to test it once its been removed from the vehicle? I just want to be 100% sure this is the problem before ordering new parts. Also, I went ahead and did a compression test, I couldn't do it with a warm engine because it would not stay running. My readings were between 130-145.
Hey everyone, I'm new to this site, so sorry if I'm doing something wrong. This is my problem, I just purchased a 2001 boxster non s. I knew it had problems, so it was purchased as a project car. When I start it, it blows out enormous amouts of smoke! Way more than I've ever seen. At first I was thinking it was bad piston rings, but I've been reading posts and many are saying its the aos? I plan on doing a compression test to see how the rings are, but i don't want to go through the hassle if its just the aos. Any advise would be appreciated!
