Hi,

 

I have a 1985 boxter pdk gear box and occasionally when I put my foot down it will go then loose power and the revs drop for a second then all comes back and it’s fine. Only intermittent 

 

it does it more when it’s building up to temperature 

 

thoughts please. I’ve head could be a throttle sensor

 

 cheers. Alex

Welcome to RennTech :welcomeani:

While I seriously doubt you actually have a 1985 Boxster with a PDK, similar complaints have been addressed by reprogramming the PDK, which would require the factory PIWIS system to accomplish.

I would still have the car checked to see if the PDK has the latest software.  Most of these issues seem to be related to that.

2005 Boxster should have a ZF Tiptronic transmission or a manual gearbox, are you sure about the build date?

Hi it’s a 2005 55 plate 2.7 with an auto box 5 speed

 

cheers

 

Which means it is a Tiptronic, not a PDK transmission, which also means my software suggestion is moot.

Just start cleaning the throttle body and air mass meter, CRC sells a special aerosol product for this purpose, available from board sponsor Sunset. The throttle body can be done with brake cleaner.
