Is my Boxster ****ed?


Recommended Posts

75mph on the interstate and the red LED on my temperature gauge starts blinking.

Before I can get to the next exit my check engine light (CEL) starts rapidly flashing.

I put it in neutral and coast off to the shoulder and the car shuts off and every light on the dash comes on.

I wait 30 minutes but the car will not turn over again, but it really wants to. It says "vrig-jig-jig-jig-jig-j-j-jig"

Please tell me what's wrong with my Boxcutter? Tell me what to do, I'll do it. I will jack this thing up and pull out whatever you want me to. I will buy parts, I will replace them- I will suck your **** before but I go to the Porsche dealer.

(Please don't tell me I have to replace the engine. I will hunt you down and kill you. haha, just kidding... well not really)

Maybe, maybe not.

Here is what I would check out:

In order of ease: Is there any oil in your coolant -- it will look a little milky -- chocolate milkshake -- maybe a little maybe a lot.

If not -- then check to see if your serperntine belt is good order.

You could have a pulley that went out preventing the belt from turning -- which would prevent you from starting by not allowing the crank to turn by the starter.

You could also have had a water pump go out. is there any leaks there -- or yellow crusty stuff around it?

beyond this -- check your oil filter -- you can remove it without loosing much oil.

open it up and see if there are any particulates.

beyond this -- things get a lot more complicated.
