found a boxster but needs TLC...help


Recommended Posts

I spoke to somebody out of my area w/ a 00 Boxster w/ 44 293 miles FS. The car has even compression and passed a leakdown test. However, there are 2 issues w/ the car which sound like common problems:

1) The catallitic converter(s) need to be replaced (seller said that it might be a recall)

2) There is an oil leak from the valve cover

My question is; are these things easily fixable by a DIYer who has vast experience on hondas and has access to air tools?

PS: it also needs new brake pads all around along w/ rear rotors (that is a 2hr job for me).

How sure are you that the problem is the cat converter? I find it strange that a car with < 45K would have bad cats. Do you have a check engine light? Have you read the codes? Porsche parts are expensive.

The CEL is not illuminating. I just spoke to the guy who is selling the car and that is what he told me that the Porsche dealership who did the Pre-purchase inspection said...however, I am yet to find out which cat of the 4 need replacing...I already called sunset and they told me that it is 2200 for all 4 so let's hope it's just one or a sensor which is gone or else, I am going to have to negotiate a cheaper selling price.
