P1026 CEL with a lot of white smoke for 1999 Boxster


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This just happened for my 1999 Boxster. When I start the car in the morning especially when it's cold, I got so much

while smoke coming out from the exhaust pipe. It's way too much and I don't think it's nornal.

After a while, CEL will be turned on. I got the code P1126. Sorry it's not P1026. It's a typo.

After googling a little bit, I am starting to think that this might be caused by the bad oil separator.

Before I spend money, I need your opinion.

Thanks.

Steve

Steve:

Do a search here, or take a look at Mike Focke's Boxster Pages and see if your smoke looks anything like what is in that photo, here: http://mike.focke.googlepages.com/airoilseparatorreplacement

Disconnect the air intake tube at the throttle body and see if there is any oil pooling in there. If so, your AOS is the culprit.

If the AOS fails, it can have catastrophic effects (hydrolock), so be careful.

Regards, Maurice.

Hi Maurice:

Yes, the problem is the air/oil separator. I bought one from internet for about $80 and

my mechanic put it in for me.

All the problems went away including the engine misfiring.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Steve

Steve:

No problem, and thanks for the update. Glad you got it resolved.

$80 is a really good price!

Enjoy your Boxster!

Regards, Maurice.
