  1. The connector is quite high up on the back of the gearbox, you'll need to remove the plastic cover below the centre of the car as well to get better vision, and a mirror will give you a much easier time. Unfortunately I don't have a pic to help you, but it was quite easy to locate with the trim off and an extendable mirror. I checked the plug and it appears dry. After removing some brackets and moving coolant pipes etc, I've managed to track down the source of the leak as the original ATF return pipe that the Specialist had changed on my original issue - it appears the leak is co
  2. I haven't heard of that, I'll look into that for sure - do you happen to remember who it was?... Are there any other hot spots for ATF leaks? I've read about the transfer case but I'm praying it won't be that I took it to another Porsche specialist but after an hour or so he wasn't able to locate the source either which is a little disheartening. I'll have another crack at it tomorrow and remove some stuff to get a better look.
  3. So, a bit of a delayed update due to work, but here it goes. I gave the car a good drive when I got back, and annoyingly (?) it seems to be running great. There were no warnings and no slippage at all. I jacked it up anyway to have a look and that's where I found it was leaking ATF, pretty badly. (The gearbox is directly above my head as I take this photo, with the underside of the car covered in ATF) At first I thought the leak was coming from the Oil Pan Gasket, but on closer inspection it seems that it might be coming from above that. The pipe that was r
  4. Thank you - I've read conflicting things too Wizard, so it's nice to have it confirmed. I'm around 2 hours away from Maidenhead, so I could pop up if you think that would be a good idea. My current reader has dedicated Porsche module - it allows me to play with all the settings within the car (lights, ABS, windows etc), I assumed this would also show me all the codes too? I've PMed you my email address, many thanks. Thank you so much for signing up for this - that does help me a lot! Was there any visible damage or was it a 'gamble'? I've heard tha
  5. Apologies I don't know why I typed that... I meant 2004 (late). I was under the impression that the ZF was the early year cars? And that in 2002 they equipped them with the 722.6? To be honest I haven't checked physically.
  6. Hi All, I've had a look on the forum and seen some good topics regarding this warning, but I'm hoping to post a fresh topic to share my experiences and hopefully gain some insight to my problem. Warning: Long post. Short version: Car goes into Tiptronic Emergenc Run Warning when accelerating hard. Had the car 'fixed' by a Specialist but seems to have returned. Background Stock Porsche 996t 2004, car has 70k miles, and has given me zero problems in my 12 months ownership. Initial Symptoms I put my foot down in 2nd and the car suddenly felt weird - it felt like th
