However, you may also be experiencing an issue with the clutch hydraulics. Brake fluid can be longer, I typically recommend around 40K-60K depending upon the environment and how the car has been driven. While in the case of indirect injection the fuel is atomised in part upfront of the closed intake valve, fuel is now injected directly into the cylinder only after the valve has opened. If you suspect an oil leak in the engine have your dealer check it out immediately. Interior: the classy ambience of a genuine sports car The interior comes completely in high-quality materials with a very pleasant flair and surface touch. Modification of the valve control map on the steering transmission serves furthermore to reduce steering forces, giving the Boxster and Cayman even more agile and spontaneous steering behaviour. Even lighter valve drive and on-demand oil pump To further increase the spontaneity, economy and high-revving performance of the engine, the engineers in Weissach have also re-designed the entire valve drive system.
It could be that a previous owner or shop scratched the surface of the case a bit when changing the oil. Its not a big deal really, with moderation being the key. This latter function — adjustment of valve stroke — is performed by hydraulically switching cup tappets on the intake side of the engine operated by two cams varying in size on the intake camshaft. Thank you for using Car How To and the Oil Reset Pro app. Gears 1 — 6 feature an extra-sporting gear ratio with the car reaching top speed in sixth gear. But the next day when I turn it on, it goes back to the blinking bottom level. This allows much faster calculation of routes presenting three alternative proposals in each case.
Engine Oil change quantity with oil filter approx. I would put the torque wrench on it again and make sure it's tightened up to the specified torque value. Further new features are the design and position of the coolant pump as a separate module outside of the crankcase itself. A further advantage is that this reduces the gap between the flywheel and the first crankshaft bearing, the smaller leverage provided in this way making the entire structure stiffer and allowing the engine to run even more smoothly and harmoniously. Unsure of what he is doing.
This engine oil change procedure applies to most of the Porsche lineup - including the Porsche Boxster, Carrera, etc. The big advantage of VarioCam Plus is, first, optimum engine power and torque whenever required and, second, a further improvement of fuel economy, emission management and motoring refinement. Any insight on how to remove the old and install the new would be appreciated. Pop Pop, Sorry for not being specific -- When I recently changed my oil, I put in 7. The touch was brief, but apparently I have either knocked out my alternator, or a main fuse in the distribution box located under the dash on the passenger side. June 11, 2012 Followup from the Pelican Staff: The recommended oil for: ambient temps generally above 50°F 10°C -- 10W-40, 15W-40, 15W-50 ambient temps generally below 50°F 10°C -- 10W-40, 10W-30, 5W-30 - Nick at Pelican Parts ole-red Comments: Wayne, I have a 2002 Boxster S, while changing out the battery, dumb-s me, put in the battery backwards.

Thank you, Brennan October 29, 2014 Followup from the Pelican Staff: I think you have to replace the assembly. It also could be that the plug has worked it's way loose slightly after some heat cycles. However, Porsche recommends an oil change on the 2007 Cayman S every two years or 20,000 miles. This serves to quickly cool down seat surfaces heated up by the sun and prevents the occupants from sweating while driving. I had questions like how much for service? I have a boxster s 2005 automatic 3.
All donations go to the costs operating and maintaining this site. I heard M1-107, M1-206, M1-113 etc. Indeed, this specific set-up in combination with the very stiff, flexurally and torsionally rigid body gives the Cayman its characteristic driving behaviour with superior safety reserves and enhanced driving comfort. I refilled the break fluid but no change. You can make best use of these long oil change intervals by using multigrade oils since these are largely independent of seasonal fluctuations in temperature. August 21, 2014 Followup from the Pelican Staff: I would stick with synthetic.
Menu guidance is both logical and clear, with the driver and front passenger finding the most important functions in one main menu. Just double check in your owner's manual. The Cayman is powered by a 2. You also might want to make sure that the plastic housing isn't dented or damaged. The seat backrest angle is set electrically, the fore-and-aft position as well as seat height are adjusted mechanically. June 7, 2015 Followup from the Pelican Staff: What kind of vehicle? Have a look around there are better forums out there. Mixing water and oil is never a good thing, but it does happen when coolant mixes in the engine, and if you don't run the engine, it's not super life-threatening to the engine.
The advantage of this particular configuration is flexible adjustment of the coolant pump in its size as well as the reduction of repair costs. This ensures a far higher standard of agility on winding routes together with even better handling, for example in a bend, in tight curves or when parking. It has about 10k on it. I should probably write an article on this, but in the meantime I will copy this question to the forums where others can chime in with their opinions. It is held on by a hose clamp. But now that 2009 refreshening adds extra power to the Cayman, how will this stack up? There is no separate oil tank to drain, and there is only one filter, which is easy to access.
