Being a boxer motor there will be oil present always in the rocker cover s therefore it is necessary to ensure that the cover bolts are correctly tensioned. Failing that get new cover gaskets and I would use loctite blue as the sealer on clean surfaces

SOURCE: My 2000 porsche boxster is making a clicking noise and its on the right side of the engine and it looks like a oil leak on the same side to

The clicking noise is just the car cooling down and the metal components in the exhaust expanding and contracting. nothing to worry about. And it does look like there is a reasonably bad oil leak. Make sure there is enough oil in the engine before driving it and take it to get a seal or gasket replaced to stop it.

2000 satrn sl1 someone told me on my 5 speed the gear oil was leaking out on right side of trany the seal was bad, now they tell me something on top is what is really leaking gear oil, what can it be or do...


first, make sure the car is actually leaking oil.
park the car on a clean part of driveway overnight and see if there are any new oil spots in the morning.

the only way to tell exactly where a leak is coming from is to steam clean the underneath of the car and look to see exactly where the oil is coming from.

you do this to find where the leak is, then you try to work out the best way to fix it.

2000 Boxster overheating, blowing coolant out of coolant tank bleeder valve when overheating. This valve seems to stay in the raised position when engine warms up. Also after removing oil cap and covering...


Whatever you do, do not drive. I got the same problem about 4 hours ago and tried to get home. Half way, no oil pressure, overheat, silly noise from the engine.
Take your Boxster to a shop with a truck, you'll save money.

How can you tell if your water pump is bad. Boxster running hot. Steam coming out of side vents. I waited and allowed engine to cool. Without starting it, refilled with antifreeze and antifreeze is leaking...


It could be either hose or the pump. Introduce no more antifreeze to this car until you have found your leak as you are just wasting your money.

You are going to have to visually inspect it for the leak. Typically if it is a pump, the pulley and the underside of the pump will be wet.

I have a 2003 porsche boxster. there is an oil leak and I have an oil spot on the floor.How do I check where is it coming from?. the location of spot is just under the engine.


Go to jiffy lube. tell em what you got. look under the car with the tech. They'll let you go into the greasy pit. Remember, follow the leak to it's source. Gravity is a tough thing to account for.

2001 porsche boxter engine running hot


My 2000 Boxster developed a pin hole leak in the coolant reserve tank in the rear trunk. The trunk floor is actually raised, which allowed the coolant to go unnoticed, since the carpet never got wet. I would pull back the carpet on the side and see if there is coolant in the trunk area. If so, the plastic reserve tank will run you about $300 for the part. It is a bit of a pain to replace, but something the average home mechanic can do. Only real hassle was the hose clamps in the engine bay were installed before the engine, hence the engine was in the way of the screw head.
