Question about 1999 Porsche Boxster
It may just need a service, but there may be a more serious cause. It's very worrying that the last owner could not provide any verifiable service history.
You have a Porsche: a specialist vehicle which really needs specialist diagnosis and which you really should never have purchased without a full official Porsche service history, but that's now water under the bridge. A specialist will have up to date servicing bulletins and also diagnostic software, so on this occasion at least it's worth paying extra for an expert. If it helps, they are usually highly reliable, but many owners think that means they never need any attention. When they go wrong, they get scared of the likely bill and sell the car. Quite often, the fault is easily repaired at modest cost.
You might be told that the car must have new oil, filters, plugs etc before diagnostics can be made, if so that's entirely correct. The engine must be running as well as possible in order for diagnostic tests to be as unambiguous as possible.
