Well, I have an engine that needs to be worked on. However it is on the floor and I need it to be on the engine stand. How do I go about strapping this thing down so I can move it ??

We attach the engine stand mount to the engine, then lift it with a nylon strap sling using an engine hoist.  Simple, but it works and is very stable and safe.

Thanks, I just bought an engine  hoist. I am trying to figure out how to strap the engine. I'll probably start with the tranny first. I want to put the tranny on the engine stand and change the oil and filter. What bolts do I use to secure the tranny to the engine stand. I think the bolts must be quite long. This is a tip tranny. 

thanks.

You can use any bolt combination that is long enough and stout enough to support the weight.  Beleive it or not, they do not have to even be metric as they will pass through the stand mount and the trans bell housing.

      Tried googeleing it but couldn’t find what I was after.    Was curious if anyone knows what type of flat 6 the 986 boxster has?
       
      Is it a a true boxer engine? Or a horizontally opposed flat V?     True boxer meaning it has individual crank pins for each piston and is a true 180degree angle.    Thanks in advance

      I hate my pig but I love my pig, can anyone please help me before I send it for scrap. Over the space of the last 4 years of ownership my car has been in the Porsche dealers for 2 years in total with suspension problems, to cut a long story short this is now sorted and was due to a faulty replacement air bag being fitted. Moving on after 3 months of (almost) trouble free motoring this is what’s happening now and would love some advice as the closest porsche dealers is over 200 miles away from me.

      When I picked up the car from Porsche  it ran out of petrol before I got to the garage at the end of the road and although I filled it up it  the engine warning light remained on I assumed this was just fuel related and drove home with it on and reset it when I got home.
      Wind on a few weeks and the engine light came back on and gave me a camshaft position sensor error p0016 so I sent the car to my local Porsche mechanic who changed out the sensor and did a full service on the car including plugs filter oil etc etc. All this time the car has been running fine but as I wanted the sensor light out it was changed. However after changing it out the light came back on almost straight away. The car has been a bit sluggish to start sometimes and sometimes on pulling away from a stop has also been hesitant. 
      This was about 3-4 weeks ago and now it is worse again, at tickover it’s noisy, it doesn’t like acceleration and is running really rough although if you are going over 50mph it doesn’t have a problem and seems to run fine. The EML is now flashing rather than being a solid light. I attach a video of it running.
      Any thoughts would be a help before I decide to get it hauled back across again

      Hello there, this is my first post here and I’m writing because of problem with my boxster.
      Today in the morning I’ve started my 2002 boxster and noticed strange sounds from the engine/ rear side of the car
      It’s a metallic, grinding sound like a loose piece of metal or something like that
      Sound disappears when you press gas and comes back once you loose the pedal, I don’t know if it changes while engine is warm
       
      Also, check engine light shown up yesterday, when I connected my BT OBD2 there was no error code.
      I came with that to workshop also, and they said it’s a catalyst efficiency error.
       
      I’ve had that error code a while ago, I’ve replaced mass air flow meter and check engine light disappeared. 
      I think it might be a problem with maf again because I bought not the cheaper, not the original one, but why are there these strange sounds? I’m worried about this. Could it be catalyst this time? Or again should I replace maf? This time I’ll buy original one.
       
       
       
      here are two Videos I made
       
       
       
       
       
      Also I’m sorry if you can’t understand something, my english is not perfect.
      Thank you for all replies, I hope we will solve that problem together

      Two problems which may be connected
      1) Car starts first couple of turns most of the time.......then sometimes wont start for 5 or 6 seconds of churning.....doesnt seem to matter if its hot or cold......
       
      2) at low revs ( below 2300) the engine seems to "hunt" and revs up and down about 200 rpm. It makes it very uncomfortable in traffic.
      Had it tested static and driving and no fault codes for either problem.
      Any suggestions much appreciated.

      Hey gang, hopefully someone can answer a few questions for me.
       
      I have a 997.2 cab, and recently bought a set of Turbo II wheels – when I spoke to my local dealership, they informed me the offset was wrong and the wheels wouldn’t work on the car. Anyone have thoughts? What size tires are you running if you have the same setup? Any help is appreciated.
       
      Here are the part numbers:
      Front 997.362.157.02 – 8x11 ET57
      Rear 997.362.163.02 – 11x19 ET51
       
      Thanks,
      Chris
