Boxster Engine Mount

I recently bought engine and transmission mounts to replace the mounts that have been in my car since new. The front mount has apparently been modified somewhat since it now has a 987 part number rather than a 986 number. One thing I noticed that I wanted to ask about is that the new mount seems to be much more compliant than the original one even though the rubber in the original mount appears to be slightly deteriorated. This makes me wonder if installing what appears to be a softer mount will result in the car's handling being degraded.

2001 Boxster S serpentine belt and coolant pump

Gentlemen:  My 2001 Boxster S has 46k miles on the oro. It gets exercised every 2-3 weeks in winter and does 3-season weekend duty. It sleeps in the garage. At about 32k miles, DIY replacement of the alternator allowed inspection of the belt, which appeared excellent with no  cracks or chafing evident. But now it’s 19 years old, and during dealer service a year ago which included coolant flush at my direction, I was advised of seepage at the pump pulley shaft, though no accumulation on the body pan.

CODE ERROR PO134

Hi, Have a 1998 Boxster that is showing CODE PO134 (02 sensor ahead of Cat Bank 1). I have replaced the sensor once, coded and replaced it again with the same issue. Any direction in correcting this issue would be appreciated. 

Thanks, Ken

How much should IMS/RMS/clutch service cost?

How much should a reputable mechanic charge to replace the clutch and rear main seal and fit an IMS retrofit kit to a base 987.1? I'm being quoted around $5,000. While I love the car and would like to own it for a long time, that's nearly half its value, and I'm not made of money. Plus, Pelican Parts sells an IMS retrofit for $800 and a complete clutch kit for $800. $3400 for labor?!

Slow blinking coolant level dashboard light

I have a 1999 Boxter and am revving up for spring and trying to resolve a problem that cropped up before I put it away last fall; the engine coolant light to the right of the temperature gauge is blinking slowly all the time (engine cold, warm, coolant level full). Since it started I have been watching the coolant level and the temperature gauge. The temperature gauge never gets much above 180, and the coolant level always is full. 

Is anyone else finding it as hard as me to check my power steering fluid?

I tried to follow the manual regarding checking the power sterring fluid as I hear a slight whine when I turn the wheel all the way.  Does anyone else find it almost impossible to get to the power steering fluid cap?
