boxster - engine hesitates, wont change gears

Hi all

Just wanted to share my symptoms and thank all on the great site.

I have a 2.5 tiptronic that for the last 12 months has progressively got worse and symptons increased.

Symptoms - sluggish when cold, some misfires, then wouldnt redline it would hold short by a few hundred revs and wouldnt change gears unless you backed off, then the cruise conrtol would kick out (switch off)

Reading this site I concluded that it may be AOS or MAF, as one regular suggested just disconnect the MAF and WOW, I HAVE MY OLD CAR BACK, so I guess I need to order a new one.

I remember the suggestion was remove the MAF the car will run OK, just a clarification, removal means just disconnect, sqeeze the connector hard and it pops off.

AND guess what I have the rattle that many have been discussing, the local Porsche specialist diagnosed a faulty shock but as I couldnt fault the performance I decided not top replace, thanks all as its obvious it would not have fixed the problem.

SO THANKS ALL on this site, IF those who contributed are ever in Melbn OZ, I'll buy the coffee

excellent! :)

you are correct, just disconnecting the MAF is sufficient. it doesn't need to be physically removed from the car (as that will leave a large gaping hole in the air intake that bypasses (and negates the effect of) the air filter, allowing dust/debris to be sucked into the engine.)

best places to order a new MAF are Sunset Imports, Suncoast Porsche and AutohausAZ, IMHO.
