Having an issue with the heater in my 2000 Boxster S. It fogs up the windows when the heater is on. If I turn the AC button on the fog stops but the air temperature is no longer hot or warm even. The moisture coming out seems to have an odd smell to it. It's either old nasty water or perhaps antifreeze. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
2002 Porsche Boxster S, 6 speed, having a strange problem where the heat only comes out if I put it on hi, then it gets hot as all hell, have to turn the fan down. If I click the down button the first temperature it sets it too is 85. Then its cold. If I lower the temp it gets colder and colder, AC works gets icy cold putting the temp the other way.
But no warm air, only hot air, and only when set to HI. Any thoughts on what to look at?

I have a 2004 C2 CAB with 120K miles. I am getting bits of black foam material coming from the air vents and from under the dash. Where is this coming from? and how can I fix it? I was told there is a foam "pad" on the air flow box under located under front hood near battery.
My 2004 CS seems to be a little weak to get up & go since I got it last summer, but still much more power than the car it replaced. I wrote it off thinking, "it's not a turbo, so what do you expect?"
I did the plugs and air filters in the fall, and replaced the valve cover gasket on the driver side where it leaked the most. Still no major differences, not that I expected any.
Went out to buy some throttle body cleaner the other day, and on my way to the store I got a phone call which prompted me to turn off the climate control (click the fan speed down to 0, temperature display shows 'OFF'). On my drive home the Cayenne drove *totally* differently. Really ballsy on the pickup, tons of pull.
A few days later, I realized the car was especially chilly / foggy, so I turned the climate control back on. Sure enough, she was sluggish again to get going!
Anyone see this kind of thing before, and know what might be causing it? As far as I know, most cars "back off" on A/C and heat when the driver calls for acceleration, but that's definitely not happening here. Also, with the colder weather I'm not sure whether the Cayenne is engaging the A/C in addition to the heat.
Any insight would be appreciated!
