The weather has been beautiful these past two weekends. We decided it was probably safe to swap out the Boxster's snow tires for the Summer road tires. This year we checked and filled up all the Summer tires BEFORE putting them on the Boxster. Tthat is just good practice because one year we missed a nail in a tire, put the tire on the car, and it immediately went flat. Our go-to portable pump is the Clore Automotive's JNCAir. We have had it for a few years now. It costs a bit more up front, but it always works when we need it.
A few weeks ago, we brought the Boxster in for the annual inspection. It failed because the front shocks needed replacing. Last week, it threw a code (P0302) because two of the fuel injectors went bad. A quick check with the Bentley's Porsche Boxster Service Manual made us realize that this was a job for the pros :-) We also realized that, after almost 100K miles, what the car really needed (besides the shocks and the fuel injectors) was a really good tune-up.
So we stopped by our local garage and consulted with Al. Al owns Gerardo's on Hyde Park Ave in Roslindale. When complicated or messy repairs are required on our Porsche, Gerardo's gets it done right at a price we like. We got the car back on Friday, and it is now running as good as new, and just in time for our roadtrip to Long Island for Mother's Day. Yay! [Permalink]- Spring Boxster Tune up
