AOS and fuel filter Question

I was thinking about replacing the AOS on my 2000 Boxster S with just under 50k. I recently cleaned the throttle body and noticed it was very clean. Is this a sign that I can likely wait on the replacing the AOS?

Regarding the Fuel Filter, I though I read to change at about 60K. Does that still apply if the car is 15 years old?

Thanks,

David

Hi David,
I would hold off on replacing the AOS unless I was getting ready for a long trip or something like that. You'll know when it happens!

As for the fuel filter, its pretty easy to change so just do it when you change your oil (or oil, or motor mount, or water pump...).

Oil cap test

I did the oil cap test

Car warmed up idling

see if you can remove the oil filler cap

I could without a lot of effort...so I am putting this off for a while
