1999 Porsche Boxster

Asked by Mar 05, 2018 at 03:02 PM about the 1999 Porsche Boxster

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello. I have a 1999 Porsche Boxster. I just bought
it last August. It only has like 35,000 miles on it. My
question is this; I haven’t drove it for the last three
months and was wondering if when I go to drive it
again do I need to have the seals, oil, and
everything checked out or do you think it’s OK?
Thank you!

It would not hurt to change the oil. The cost is not that high and a new engine is.

It also wouldn't hurt to charge the battery, in you haven't already. Check Tires/pressure too. I have one of those in the shop now, that got wet...They Hate wet Feet...will be over a grand to repair the pcm, and get it programmed by the dealer.


Before you start it, check the oil level. Before you drive it, check brake fluid level, tire pressure. Best to change oil before storing, and at least once a year. If there are no deposits on the floor, seals are OK. Go drive it, gently until warmed up, then as it was meant to be driven. Enjoy!
