Smoking Kills Your Engine!

Recommended Posts

OK, my friend just confessed to his smoking habit and very bad luck. My friend has a 987 and occasionally smokes in it. A few months back he was driving home and flicked his cigarette out the window (I hate when people do this!). His car stalled a few hundred feet down the road and barely made it the 1/4 mile home. He thought nothing of it... He parked it for a few days and tried to start it and NO LUCK! Had it towed to the dealer..... It seems his intake ingested his cigarette and started his air filter on fire....and $4500 later he was ready to go. :o SMOKING KILLS AND LITTERING IS BAD!

I wonder if the K&N in my 996 would catch on fire?

Probably won't stop his smoking but will almost certainly reduce the littering!!

Owner's Manual page 122...

"Danger! Do not throw any lit cigars or cigarettes out of the vehicle. They can be blown into the air inlets by the air flow and cause a fire in the engine compartment."

Guess they weren't kidding! :eek:

Excellent result.

I don't smoke, but I take no pleasure in this chaps misfortune.

You sir are an @#*^%!

What makes you think I took pleasure in his car catching on fire?
