Cars

As are many mechanical engineers, I’m an automobile enthusiasts.  I do a tremendous amount of reading about cars, I do all my own routine maintenance and repairs, and I tend to purchase vehicles that I keep for a very long time.

Current Cars: 2017 Audi S7, 1999 Porsche Boxster
Previous Cars: 2004 Infiniti G35 Sedan, 1990 Acura Integra, 1985 Merkur XR4Ti
Dream cars: Porsche 918, McLaren 570S, Porsche Cayman GT4, Porsche 911 Targa 4

Most memorable road trips: When Kevin Colon and I took my Acura Integra to Florida; in 1993 when I was on the road for 4 months straight touring the country by bus with the Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps

  1. I have a 1999 Boxster 2.5L tiptronic…just replaced all 4 O2 sensors so I can trade the car for another model…the car was running O.K. before…Had CEL for O2 sensors…car has 97,000 miles and I drive it alot…after swithing out the sensors it now is running bad …alot like when I replaced the battery and lost ECU seetings and it had to re-learn….I lost the article with the steps for resetting the ECU…I kind of remember going through some accelerator depressing and off-on key steps….The car now pops, misfires, no power, stalls like mixture is all wrong…have tried to un-hook battery and reset ECU …but it still is not looking like its re-learning like it did before…any suggestions would be greatly appreciated…sorry for the lengthy explanation..

  2. Hey any chance you could have pluged the wrong o2 wire harness to the wrong o2 sensor. I once herd a story of a trns job go wrong. $7000.00 and two years later turnrd out to be some crossed o2 wires.

      Ha, one of the shortest pages on my website and I couldn’t even get the first few words right! At least it was an easy fix.
