My Porsche Boxster had problems when accelerating. I brought it to an independant mechanic. He said that it was the ECU. I sent the ECU for repair. He still said it did not work so I sent it a second time. When he still couldn"t fix the car (mainly because he was too busy with other cars) I sent the car to the Porsche Dealer.
He told them that it was the ECU so they started with that and told me that they had a communication problem. It was throwing a lot of codes. So the ECU had to be replaced.
After the replacement the car still did not run. Upon further testing they found out that the fuel pump needed to be replaced.
They still say that there were 2 problems the ECU and the fuel pump.
I think that it was the bad fuel pump that was causing a bunch of codes to set off.
I am wondering if a few thousand dollars was spent replacing an ECU was really necessary.
Any opinions would be appreciated.

Oil Change intervals
Hi, I need some input I love my 2000 Porsche Boxster but not sure what to do. I found a few small oil spots in my driveway so I brought it to the local import repair shop before my extended warranty expires. He told me I need to replace my gasket valve, o-ring and oil net so I asked him how much it will cost to repair he said he does not repair leaks. This doesn’t sit right with me. I only had a few small oil spots in my driveway. Do you think he is feeding me a line because I am a girl? Thoughts?
