How to test for a "bad" coil pack - 2007 Boxster.... 2.7L

How to test for a "bad" coil pack - 2007 Boxster.... 2.7L ??

What are the symptoms of a bad coil pack?

Thanks.

My 2001 Boxsters, 74,000 miles, has begun to smoke intermittently at startup

My car has begun to intermitantly puff white smoke at startup. The AOS was replaced 1 year ago, and this fixed a previous smoking problem. The new smoking problem seemed to start after the oil was changed this past summer.  The car may sit for a week or two between startups. It does not smoke every time. I originaly thought maybe too  much oil as the gauge reads full. after a few trips everything seemed okay, no smoke. I drove the car over 200 miles this past weekend, and on starts during the trip no smoke.  on Monday morning I started the car and a good sized white cloud appeared.

'97 Boxster: Multiple Check Engine Lights

I have a 1997 Boxster, 2.5. A couple of weeks ago, the check engine light came on with code P1117: Oxygen Sensor Heating 1 After Catalytic Converter - Below Lower Limit.

About a week later, multiple check engine lights appeared (listed below). I've cleared them, however, they continue to return. 

It seems odd to me that so many problems would appear at once... So, I am guessing that 1-2 primary issues may be the source.

981 GTS faint burning and or maybe oil smell after shut down

I have searched the PCA site for answers to no avail so here is my question. My Boxster 981 GTS has a very  faint oil and or burning smell after shut down on hot days.  Occurs most noticeably after driving in 90+ ambient temps. Not using oil since last dealer service 6K miles ago, no visible leaks on floor. Car always smells hot after shut down but only a faint bit of oil/burning smell in hot outdoor temps....thoughts? I have been told that the 981 Boxster motor smells hot after shut down and is normal? Thank you for your reply. John

 

 

 

Foam coming through vents

Foam is coming through my vents , doing some research its known as the foam that surrounds the AC and Heater.

I am looking at replacement and the cost, what factors can happen if the foam is not properly replace immediately

 

Thank you

99 Boxter 2.5 stalls at idle; otherwise runs well. Code P102 appears.

99 Boxter 2.5L. sometimes stalls at idle, code P102 appears.  Have throughly cleaned Idle Control Sensor, MAS, Throttle, air intake seems OK, new filter.

97 Boxster AOS installing when lower vent hose snapped!

Crispy AOS lower vent hose snapped at the transition from corrugated to smooth pipe. It looks like the whole intake system requires removing to remove and install this hose! Is there a better (easier) way?

Engine barely runs, extremely rough idle and will not rev.

I recently returned from a 2000+ mile trip to PA and back during which the car ran flawlessly. On my return, I took it out for a brief time to do a little driving instruction with my grandson which we enjoyed together. He is a very careful learner and did nothing while driving that would have been any different than my own driving habits. I took over driving after about 20 minutes to return home and the car suddenly lost power and would only barely idle with occasional spurts of smooth rev spikes. I cannot find any obvious intake vac leaks. I had repaced the AOS before leaving on the trip.
