  1. HI All Just to let everyone know I have had my car serviced and replaced the MAF sensor. The car goes like it should. Amazing that one sensor could make such a difference. Thanks to all of you that helped with this problem. A big thanks to Joe & Phil @ HP Motorsport, Hainault. These guys serviced the car for me, and made my 911 run like a 911 should.
  2. Thanks again, I have booked my car into HP Motorsport as they are closer to my offices. I will post my report once the car has been returned and the invoice has been settled. Hi All. Just a quick update. I have just had the car serviced by HP Motorsport. Excellent service, really helpfull people. Definately recommend them to anyone in the South East England, nr Hainault. The gearbox slippage was due to the MAF sensor. Now replaced and goes like a 911 should, its never driven so well.
  3. Thanks again, I have booked my car into HP Motorsport as they are closer to my offices. I will post my report once the car has been returned and the invoice has been settled.
  4. Thank you Richard for your help, have you used either of these companies?
  5. I have had the car on the OBDII reader, no fault codes present. I think Its time to find a porsche specialist in Essex (SE England). Any recommendations??
  6. Thanks Richard for you help so far. Just to clarify this is a new problem, i have always felt abit of slippage, but this is quite extreme, if I am in 2nd at 5krpm, then change I can red line it before it changes gear. I am taking the car to my local mechanic tomorrow to check the ATF Level, I am told the car has to be put on a ramp to check it?? The car is due for a service which I plan to take to Porsche, I just didnt want to pay porsches rates to check the gearbox over if its only a fluid issue. Do you use Porsche for your servicing? Phil
  7. Does anyone know how to cure the following problem. I have a 98 C2 tip, when driving my 911 fairly hard in either tip or auto mode the gearbox is slipping between gear changes when going up through the box. It appears to happen in all gears. Down changing is fine. The gearbox doesn't slip if I do not push it too hard. Can anyone help? Thanks
  8. Shows how long along ago I last logged in. Essex, SouthEast, England.
  9. HI I need to plug my porsche into a computer to check whether the airflow sensor has gone done, does anyone know somewhere in Essex that I can get this done without going to a main dealer. Thanks
  10. The light has just come up on the dashboard for my brake pads to be changed. Can anyone recommend good pads for road use? I might need to consider replacing disc's as well! I have read the DIY to changing pads, is the list of part for the C4 likely to be the same as the C2 if I stick with Porsche parts? Thanks Phil
  11. I am tempted to remove them and have the resprayed, my only concern is, I dont want to spray over the logos on the levers, does anyone know the paint code for this silver? Regards
  12. Forgive me what is IMHO? I am still trying to learn the abbreviations in this forum. Regards
  13. Just read your post, nearly a year on, I am looking to replace my levers, I too am in the UK, where can I buy them from Regards Phil
  14. Is there anything else I should check? or is it only likely to be the air mass meter? Regards
