Yep another post for the car to turn over but not start.

I have a 2002 2.7 Boxster, and it is not starting. I drove it home and the next day it will not start.
The parts I have thorn at it.
All of the fuses are good and was checked by me with an omens’ meter.
New fuel pump relay.
New crank positions sensor.
After that, I did get it to start and run for about 20 minutes. I them came back to the car after 3 hours and now it is not starting again.
I am thinking about taking it to the shop, HELP.

Fuel pump? Check fuel pressure when the car won't start.

Also, when was the last time that the fuel filter was replaced?

Is an omens meter anything like an Ouija board? I guess that everything is electronic now these days.

Tom, doesn't the 2002 Boxster have the fuel filter attached to the pump? I know my 2001 has a separate filter mounted under the chassis rail, but I thought that they modified the filter arrangement for 2002.

Any codes?
Test the oddball 'Schrader" valve on the fuel system to check for pressure-careful!
See Auto Atlanta for parts diagram.

You can test the fuel pump by jumpering the relay. Lots of posts On the forum for that.
