Hey everyone, I am in desperate need of advise! I have a 2001 boxster 2.7 and it will not idle. When I first bought it, it would not start and was leaking oil; there was oil inside the intake and smoked like crazy. I have changed the aos, spark plugs, oil this weekend but it continues to leak oil from the exhaust. It pops the code p0300 p0304 p0305 p0306, it will not stay on unless i hold the throttle all the way down. when i put it in gear it slowly moves then shuts off. Does anyone have any idea of what to do next??

What you need to do is take the front crossover pipe the one your throttlebody is connected to off. Pay attention to the vacuum lines attache to it. take a clean rag and shove it in both side and let it soak up all the oil, you may have to do this several times. clean out the tube from the aos getting rid of all oil . check the intake tube from the maf as sometimes the oil even gets into that. Then you need to clear the codes. then let it idle for 15 minutes and you should be able to drive it but it will still smoke for the first 30 miles or so. You will need the durametric software to clear the codes or find someone that can let you use it.
