  1. I have had major transmission problems at 116,000 Kms. I am almost sure your transmission will need a rebuild. Mine started with not going into first when hot at a set of lights. Then i lost drive, its started to slip very badly. I then had the auto fully re-built. It was drivable, but once warm i.e 30 minutes of running, it would STILL not go into first gear and it was slipping between gear shifts. The Auto computer was replaced and that fixed the problem of it not going into 1st gear manually. Its currently having the valve body and torque convertor solenoid worked on. apparen
  2. Can some one please tell me if its normal for the Torque converter to be told by the computer,to Stop lockup when going up a hill while holding a gear (i.e tiptronic in manual mode) My car shop is telling me this is normal after they fitted a new control box. I done recall it doing that. Thanks.
  3. My 97 2.5 boxster has been no end of trouble, but its nearly working as it should. - Motor rebuilt at 110K Kms - Auto rebuilt at 114K Kms. The auto was having a problem not going into first while at lights (under manual control). I then Lost drive within a month. Shop recommended an Auto re-build. Done ! After re-build still does not go into first at lights (under manual control) . but car can be driven. New auto computer fitter, problem of not going into first GONE !!! whoo hoo.. BUT Latest problem is that the gear box flares during gear changes !!! and When going up a hill
  4. I am totally furstrated and any help appreciated. My 97 2.5 Tiptronic has cost me $A 30K in repairs (Engine / Auto) and its still not working properly. The car drops out of 1st gear, when i pull up at a set of lights, and change the shifter to manual, then flick down the paddle to go from 2nd to 1st. It will lose drive, (to the point if i dont brake it will roll back/forward and hit another car). It will then sit there jerking trying to engage 1st. If i raise the revs a bit it will engage 1st, but with a very strong jerk. This is driving me nuts !!! The Tip has been totally re-built
