I have a 2007 997.1 turbo with 12.000 miles. The car is warranty until September this year. Since I got the car on May 2009, I have had the same problem with my tiptronic. Sometime during shifting from the 2 to the 3th gear only, the engine rev up without engaging the 3th gear and then it finally engage hard... really hard... I don't have this kind of problem when I drove at high rpm's or on any other gear change, only during smooth driving... Anybody had tiptronic problems like these ? The solenoid valves had been changed by Porsche already, and the problem remains the same. Can you help me? Should I ask them to replace the complete transmision under warranty? Thanks,
Thanks, as always. You are so helpfull for all of us. If you ever come to Spain, let me know.
Loren, Do you have that part number of the touch Up Paint in Midnight Blue Metallic ? Is there also an aerosol spray ? Thanks.
antonio_spain replied to antonio_spain's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Loren, You are just incredible. Thanks a LOT.
antonio_spain posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Loren, Are the X51 and the PSE compatible ? I say this because I think that the exhaust manifolds are new ? Correct ? Another question is labor to do the retrofit. How many hours can I expect ?
Loren, I am going to replace the standard door sills in my C2 Cab. with the stainless steel ones. My question is how to remove them ? Thanks, Antonio.
antonio_spain replied to vjd3's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Yes, Loren just the hard top.
antonio_spain replied to vjd3's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Loren, Could you email me those TSB about noises in the hard/soft top of 996 cabrio ? Thanks, Antonio
antonio_spain replied to antonio_spain's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Loren, As a result of the 12 laps at the circuit that I mentioned, the dealer has changed the four set of pads, and THE FRONT ROTORS, that were absolutly ruined due to overheating !!! Is this a Porsche ? I could not believe it.
I am thinking about changing the stock pads on my 03 C2 Cab. ( They are nearly useless in track use. Last time at jarama circuit in Madrid the brakes suffer a severe fading after 5 laps.... and its a 2 mile circuit with no more than 3/4 hard braking points ). My question is : are the pagid blues the same as the Porsche Tequipment Competition pads shown on the Porsche web ? Which one do you recommend Loren for street/track use ( 80/20%) ?
antonio_spain replied to antonio_spain's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Loren the car has 6000 thousand miles. It is the second time that i take it to the dealer. First time they said that the pedal was going down too much and they changed the hydraulics ? Buy gt remains the same the pedal goes down a lot yes the abs enters too soon and you do not feel that instant and hard braking power
