Porsche Boxster Problems

Smoke, oil consumption, and fuel trim issues with various fault codes can be traced to an internal leak at the oil separator.

If the vehicle cannot return to run position after start or if the interior fan is not getting power, it may be the electrical portion of the ignition switch has become erratic or has failed. The entire switch assembly should be replaced.

The power windows not lowering when the Cabriolet top latch and/or door handle is operated or lowering unexpectedly while driving can be caused by a failing Cabriolet top or door handle micro switch. Diagnoses will be required to determine which switch is at fault and will require replacement.

Once you drive it, you don't want to change it. Take this advice from someone who have changed around 30 cars so far. You will love Porsche for ever. I have a Boxster 10/1998 and I feel very happy about it. It never let me down so far.

I spent a lot of $ getting this car repaired, but I love it. Had electrical issues, oil separator issues, and fuel pump problems
