Question about 1999 Porsche Boxster
As long as the CHECK ENGINE light is on steady, you can very gently drive it. If it starts to flash...turn the engine off immediately.
Have the code checked by the Dealer.

Testimonial: "The info was very helful. Thank you"
The list of things it could be is to long, You wil have to get the car put on a code machine to identify it, even then it will most likely give you 3 or 4 possibilites.
Most likely it will eaither be the air mass sensor, air mass meter, or the EGR valve. they are the 3 most common causes of engine lights! Dont buy new parts as a lot of times they just need cleaning up and will work fine again.
Alos worth looking around your air pipes and ensure none of them are sucking in to much air, look for rips and tears in pipes, mostly on the underside where you would not see from a top view.
Hope this helps.
If you have just bought it go back with the car and get them to pay for it.
