Q: Staling on 2002 Porsche Boxster

This problem just started a couple of days ago, when the engine reaches its normal temp. The engine will not idle it stalls. The check engine light is on steady. This has never happened before, the car has 55,000 miles on it. This car has always run great. Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

You really need to retrieve the diagnostic information associated with the check engine light being on. This car uses generic OBD II so you can use a scanner as supplied by most FLAPS (friendly large auto part stores) , such as Kragen , Auto/Zone etc. Some provide this service free.
Short of that check for loose/broken hoses , poor wiring connections at the engine and so on.
There are several known issues with these cars , so get the fault code(s) retrieved first.......
