alright, so i'm a new kid to the porsche world, and i must say....i absolutely love this machine! i purchased my 2001 boxster S about a month ago, and i must say that the dealer i bought it from (non porsche dealer) has done absolutely nothing but cause me headache, after headache, after headache...you get the point. to get to the point of this post though...i recently had labor done on the car roughly 1 week ago, in which the dealer corrected a CEL light issue (exhaust leak was causing slow heating of O2 sensor). i took the car to get an emissions test done (so i could get my tag), and the car failed the test. cause of failure---OBD readiness. the car had 266 miles put on it between the service date and emissions test, which i assumed would've been MORE than enough time to complete the "drive cycle." so i took the car back out, drove another 150miles (it was a nice day), keeping my speed between 70-80mph, and drive cycle STILL not complete! i'm a bit mechanically inclined...but this just baffles me! any suggestions, ideas, whatever, would be greatly appreciated!

Start - stop, start - stop , start - stop.... different faults takes differing amounts of the drive cycles to clear.

You can also clear them with the Durametric Software, or find a shop or dealer with a PST2 or PIWIS tester.

Hi

An exhaust leak is definitely not the main reason of your problem. If the fault is still occur, it is impossible to clear by drive cycle. Go to a dealer with a PIWIS tester for a check, in the menu DME - actual values, hi will find the cause.
