Strange issue

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this is the wrong section, this is my first post.

My wife owns a 1999 boxster s and yesterday she had a problem driving home from work.

Goes like this-

She was stationary at a roundabout and as she went to pull away she heard a loud bang as if she had been hit, the car then cut out, she tried to start the car again but seemed to have no power at all as in no dash lights or anything for about 20 minutes, I told her not to do anything until I got there with a recovery try from my work (I'm a spray painter at a bodyshop/garage) the mechanic I was with then went to start it and it fired up as if was perfectly fine!

She obviously wasn't happy with so we recovered it back to my work to have it checked over hopefully in the next few days, but I took it for a quick spin around the block and it seemed like everything was normal.

The only issues that I can think we have with it at the moment is the clutch is a little stiff but it has been for the last 3-4 years, no slipping though.

Anyone had any issues similar to this one?

Many thanks!

You might like to check the engine mounts before moving on to the clutch or potentially the gearbox as the source of the problem. Having said that, I cannot understand why any of those would cause power loss.
