Sorry young man .. i totally missed this post .. you need to give me a nudge if theres anything i can help with .. i thought you had just the Boxster you were working on Embarassed

AOS on these is much easier than a 996 and they dont tend to give the full on bellowing smoke .. but can give as with yours a puff more than normal.

Small update.

I replaced the oil pressure sender last night, 5 minute job from the point of opening the deck lid to closing and starting the car.

I used a 19mm crow foot with an extension, unplugged the 2 wires, broke the sender loose and then twisted it out, new one in, twist in then tighten up. Push the connectors on, job done.

Ended up going on a 1 hour drive after, pressure readings perfect, just below 3 bar hot idle as it was before the last sender failed.


For reference, the sender is reachable from the top and just under the pipes in the circled area, green wire leads to it.

Old and New

FWIW, the combined oil pressure/temp sender on the 997.2 is not quite as accessible and requires a small engine drop to access. Ask me how I know Very Happy

Thanks Iain, don't you worry, I will!!

Wow, I initially feared that this was going to be a nightmare job like that but thankfully, 5 minutes outside a mates house. Having to drop the engine probably would have led me to put up with the faulty sensor. Cop

Cheers Chief! Just like to keep a diary on each of the cars. They have been pretty good for checking back and remembering when I last did something.
