2008 Porsche Boxster QuestionsWhy won't our Porsche start without checking the oil first? (1 answer)
I know you can check the oil by turning the key to the first stop. However now every time we try starting the car it won't let us start until it checks the oil level. And sometimes it makes you check it twice before starting. This every time now.
