I have Suddenly overnight got a droning sound from my Boxster 986 s 2003. Its not the engine because the sound doesn't change if you put the car in neutral and let idle or rev it theres no change. However if you let the car coast along and turn engine off, you still hear the droning wining sound. Its happened so quickly rather than built up slowly I am wondering if it could be the handbrake shoes gone adrift perhaps. Any body else had this?
Hey guys new member here. Recently bought my 2000 Porsche Boxster S back in June and ran through plenty of problems since day 1 but today im a little lost. After a failed oil cooler, oil pump solenoid, new spark plugs, new window regulator, new AOS; im now stuck with a knock coming from from the driver side of the engine (U.S.) I haven't needed to get into the engine since I haven't had serious problems until now. Looking at similar knocks on YouTube, I think its a failed rod bearing. CEL came on for a Cylinder 6 misfire. I read at other posts about getting to them through the oil pan but can't find how. Besides pulling the oil pan, what else do I need to crack open? Do I need to remove the cross bar? By the way, I know something is going on because I pulled the oil pan off already and found alot more metallic flakes from wear and tear than usual. Im pretty sure the previous owner didn't do a oil change when he was supposed to. At this point, Im going to college with 5 classes and launching a business soon, so I hope im not stuck with a major rebuild. Planning to post pictures and video tomorrow. Thanks.
99- 996 with trip. With the help of the forum (quick thank you) I was able to determine that I had a bad bearing/idler pully. I have removed the air box and am trying to determine: 1. the correct torque for the attaching bolt on the upper idler, and 2. does it require a specific spanner or wrench, or can i use a common open/box end? Also there was a great video (shows removal of box and how to on the tensioner) when I first looked at how to do this but I have since grown a few days older and cannot remember the search words i used. Any ideas? Thank you in advance for your help. Serg
