Anyone in 100k mile club


Recommended Posts

Anyone suffer an IMS fail with over 100K on the clock since the last post in 2/19?

 

Besides that, I'm at 115K on my seal grey 01 Box 5 spd. Purchased with 72K in 10/16.  Daily driver, midwest USA.

 

One of my upper strut mounts is starting to clunk so that'll need some attention soon.

Replace serpentine belt and water pump 2 yrs ago. 

 

Replaced rear rubber with DWS 06 when purchased, replaced all 4 with Michelin All season Pilot sports in November. 

 

I love her.  Just wanting a bit more umpf.

We have seen a couple in customer' cars.  High miles does not exempt you from the potential of IMS failures.

I bought my 1999 Boxster 5-spd, US spec, with 127,000 miles on it three years ago. It had just had a new water pump and thermostat put in. I have since done front and rear brakes, new convertible top with glass window, repainted my wheels, new left side condenser, replaced the AOS, replaced shocks and struts, and had work done on the VANOS system.

 

Right now I am battling a CEL light that gives me codes 1124 and 1126. I have cleaned the MAF and replaced the AOS, but I am still getting the codes. I found and fixed a couple very small vacuum leaks. Still get the codes. Very frustrating. I did the oil cap test, and this does not seem to be the problem. I would really appreciate any input on this topic. My next move may be to replace the fuel filter, as I have no idea when that was done.

 

Last week, my a/c compressor and clutch blew up, so I am looking for a replacement. I have found a new Denso unit for around $320, plus the drier receiver for $15. Has anyone ever used either a remanufactured unit or the Nissens brand of compressor? The Boxster is not my daily driver, so I am wondering what is the best way to go on purchasing a new compressor. All responses would be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
