Cylinder misfire & brake sensor

Recommended Posts

Just picked up a 2000 Boxster.  All in all it is in good condition.  Needs a paintjob, but it runs.  Deal was too good to pass up.  Only has 92k on it.


It does have a few issues.  The PO didn't know anything about cars, let alone a Porsche.  Bought it knowing it had a coolant leak, CEL was on for misfire and possibly needing 1 or more abs sensors.  Wheels are unfortunately only 16's but they have new rubber on them.  Top is in good condition but the back window is going to need to be replaced.  Battery will also need to be replaced.


I found the coolant leak, blown hose.  Easy fix.

Got the car running for a few just to get it in the garage.  It is throwing P0300, P0302 & P0304.  Plan on doing plugs this coming weekend, then coil paks if necessary. It does look like #4 is leaking though.  Is that just the seal?


Can the brake sensors be cut & crimped together at each wheel like they can on the 944's?


Once I get the hose fixed this week and the plugs changed it will be getting a good wash, especially the engine, then it's off to get inspection & plates.


The leak is the connection hose between the hard lines behind the one with the arrow on it.

Save yourself some chasing for odd codes and replace the battery before getting into any codes. Had my 11 year old, low mileage Boxster for a day and got a "flashing D4" (Tiptronic limp mode forcing a trip to dealer for reset) that was due only to a battery that wasn't up to full voltage due to age.


Also, this forum is such a great resource and everyone here is very helpful, and the powers that be are very very knowledgable and experienced. It's for these reasons it's one of the few forums I support.
