Dirty Fuel Filter, Fuel Injectors Or Clutch?

Recommended Posts

Hello all.

I have an 02 boxster with 19k miles. My car started to "lose" power. In other words, when I start out in 1st gear it's fine, but then when I shift the engine "lags" a bit and the rpm's go from 2 to 3.5 with out much feel in power. Is this due to a dirty fuel filter. I did go almost to empty a couple of times right before that and noticed after I filled up. Also, when coming to a corner and pull out of the corner on 2nd I have to give it more gas than I did before or the car feels like it;s going to stall. Any input would be helpful.

I dont know, I always use 93 octane. I was just on the highway and when in 5th gear I hit the gas, I notice the rpm's jump from 3 to 4.5 and hardly any acceleration then it kicks in , feels like turbo lag from cars i have had in the past.

BTW, I dont drive the car hard, no wheel spin and dont ride the clutch.

I just stopped by the dealer and it is my clutch it;s going. The mechanic says the clutches avg. life is about 30K miles, I only have 19k and the car is about a 1 1/2 years old!!!! I dont even abuse or burn out my tires, my Pzeros lasted about 16K miles in the rear!!!! They said it isnt under warranty and about $1500 to fix. OUCH!! Is this the norm or is there anything I could do? Any help is appreciated. BTW MY car is always at the shop under warraty, evap cannister, repeated air valve, and sensors, had a suspension component wear prematurely etc. I am starting to hate this car, nothing but trouble.

If I do have to replace should I replace at an aftermarket porshce shop and install a performance clutch. What clutch should I go with, and what is the avg price for clutch labor or both.

Can I call Porsch of N. America and complaint othem about my clutch , would they do something for me.

Any stories, idea, thougths are reatly apprecaited.

FVD has a package with the sport clutch and sport pressure plate as well as an aluminum flywheel for $975 for Boxster or $1195 for Boxster S. I have one in my car, it helps with acceleration, it lets the engine rev up quicker.
