    while i was driving the engine...

    ...stopped working. I had third gear 3500 rpm and the engine stopped, not like there was no fuel in the tank but lets say realy sudden stop of the engine. I pulled right stopped the car and started the engine in a sec without problems at all.
    I called the dealer and they told me it is most propably dirty fuel.
    Can you imagine that happening on a sharp turn?
    I could have crashed.
    What do you think guys?
    I hope its not an electronic issue. If it is Im selling it in a sec. Thats going to be my second porshce with ecu problems (boxter 99)

    Re: while i was driving the engine...

    That does sound like a fuel issue. keep us posted.

    Re: while i was driving the engine...

    That sounds like electrical problem. Most likely it will happen again. I had this problem on two other previous cars. Dirty fuel may cut your power out but it will not shut the engine down.

    Re: while i was driving the engine...

    How new is the car? If very new it could maaaaaybe just be a one-time glitch. Back in 2002 my new BoxsterS engine went nuts (for ten minutes) just weeks after delivery and then, even though nothing was done, it never happened again.

    Oops..., forgot to mention when the car did get it's scheduled maint there was no code stored to reflect the event.

    Re: while i was driving the engine...

    I would think if it was dirty fuel all of our car would be shutting down all the time.

    Re: while i was driving the engine...

    excuse the ignorance, but what is dirty fuel exactly??

    fuel pumped by Christina Aguilera?

    Re: while i was driving the engine...

    That would break my heart, yet [beep] me off!!

    Porsche and their sudden stop of engines while driving. I hear one too many stories about this.

    It sounds like a dork told you the dirty fuel theory!! ??

    Re: while i was driving the engine...

    Guys I live in Greece and You dont want to know what fuel stations do to their fuel in order to make money (falsification with water).
    Anyway I was at the dealer today and they told me its for sure dirty fuel because DME control showed no fault.
    I have to leave the car next week for 2 days at the service in order to check the fuel pump and to emty the tank completely. thanks anyway for your coments.

    Altak, as I stated before, I believe it was fuel related. That does not mean dirty fuel only. It also could be fuel pump, etc. That happen to the wife's ML once. The engine shut down in the middle of the freeway without any warning. Good luck and I hope they can get it fix soon.
