  1. Ok mate, I'll see if I can see the Oil Tube you're speaking of & also check the coil connections etc. I mean't to add that there are no codes no visible on my mates cheapo machine? Cheers :thankyou:
  2. HI Mate, Earlier in the year I changed out the AOS valve complete with hoses/clips etc (what a job). But prior to this the Gearbox was serviced (Tip) and the R/H D shft seal replaced but thats about all? Albeit, there was a few dents in the RH rear wing & I then took it to a body shop that had to remove the RH air intake vent to repair the dents. (the RH wheel may have been removed also?) After that I can't remember the car being used much as it's only a weekend motor. Is there anything at that side of the car (around air intake area) that may have been affected? Thanks Again for your knowledge......
  3. Okay Guys, Changing the C02 sensor dosen't appear to have worked as car runs fine when cold, or idling then when applying accelerator starts to misfire (no codes seen on my cheapo reading machine) And I ain't near any garages as such. Any suggestions? Could changing the Cam position sensor help? Or could I have gotten grease onto the sensor while fitting?
  4. Dura metric sounds interesting? Thanks I think I'll look into that . My Boxster up for sale but undecided what to go for next. Cheers
  5. Hi mate, Oops too late already on order. I see both points but I only followed an old post from another Renntech user & it seems to have worked (but we'll see once I fit the new sensor) ;( I'm afraid there's no garage close to me with that technology so I thought for £100 it's worth a try as it would cost me more than that just in petrol to get to said garage & I'm a bit busy at present? You guys knowledge is very good. As a guide what would I expect to pay for a reasonable code reader? Many thanks guys......
  6. Hi Mate, Well, yesterday I managed to remove both of the pre-cat C02 (Lamba) sensors. I then cleaned them up and re-fitted them into the car on opposite sides (left into right right into left) then ran the car for a few minutes. I then plugged the car back into the Fault Reader & it showed a Mis-fire on 4, 5 & 6. ??
  7. 1st of all many thanks to all as without this Site & many of the forum users I wouldn't have got this far .... Borrowed a cheap Code Machine thingy from my mate, then got codes of P0300, P0301, P0302 & P0303. Mmmmm? Went on here & got an answer of possible Lamba Sensor (C02 Pre-Cat) so what now? Car was up for sale & decided to start mis-firing ace..... So managed to removed both pre-cat sensors, labelled each then put them back into my car, but in the opposite side. Conclusion; Car then registered a mis-fire on cylinders 4,5 & 6. AWESOME as it could've been a lot worse I guess?? So I now need a new C02 (Lamba )sensor but I can't seem to find the OEM one with the same connectors as mine, any ideas?? The only numbers I can see on the sensor are ; 1-967 059-1 & 1985 299-1. The one below I found on Ebay is what I need but is not an OEM part. Should I use it?? Question; Does it matter what the Exhaust end of the looks like eg; some of the sensor ends seem to be different shapes ect? Car is for sale @£7500 as I now want an older 911. (Mega High Factory Spec) Thanks in advance......
  8. Just ordered from 9apart (Porsch apart) UK £75 not too bad. Many thanks to you all for the info :thankyou: :cheers:
  9. cheers. Where is the Best UK place to get a new one? I guess I also need a new hose as well as I now believe they are longer?
  10. Where is the best UK place to buy a new AOS for my 2001 Boxster S Tiptronic?
  11. It's normal to do that. I have just had my box serviced by a Auot Box Specialist here in Scotland ( I used to work there) & he assured me this was normal. :drive:
  12. Got it! Bang On, AOS giving me lots of back pressure through to the Oil Filler Cap. Thanks, I think? :thankyou: Question; Is it still okay to drive or should I put if off the road until I replace the AOS? :wrench: Cheers
  13. Hi Thanks, Not too sure if it helps. I guess this is for a left-hand-drive car?
  14. Help! I need to replace my Along-Sill Air-Con Pipes. Can anyone supply me with a diagram/tutorial on how to go about this task? I have both new Supply & Return pipes (from Porsha-part) but no idea (as no ramp) on where the ends finish etc. Cheers :huh:
