986 Boxster S bad engine price

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 
 

Unfortunately my Boxster S has a problem which I do not have the funds to fix and I do not have the space or time to break it for parts. I was wondering what value it would have and perhaps if anyone on here would want to take it on as a project/break it themselves. 

The problem:  coolant is leaking from the exhaust manifold so garage suspect a blown head gasket or worse a crack in the engine block itself, either way coolant is in part of the engine it  shouldn’t be. I took it into the garage as it was misfiring, the emission warning light came on and a lot of white smoke was coming out from the exhaust. 

Any advice and suggestions would be welcome, thank you

Welcome, sorry such bad news prompted you to seek us out.

You will need to give a lot more info, year/mileage/MOT/spec etc and put up some pics. (Not directly, use imgur or flickr to host)

Also, add your location, we may be able to advise of an independent specialist nearby to you, it may be worth finding out exactly ahat is wrong and projected repair costs before making a decision.

Thanks for the reply, 

Year is 2000, around 123000 miles (at garage so can’t check exact mileage), it has 6 months left on MOT and is 3.2 litre boxster S, 6 speed manual in Red. Brake pads will need replacing soon but otherwise car is in good condition. 
I can take photos and upload them when I get the car back from the garage next week!

Car is in Bath, UK

Bath is a 30min Drive for me if someone is interested and wanted someone to have a look over the car for them if they are some distance away before making the journey.
