  1. As I understand it, it is only the valve block orifices and soleniods that are specific to Porsche. If you don't have a problem with the valve block it should be relatively straightforward to repair by any transmission centre familiar with ZF. I have the general spare parts lists for the ZF 5HP 19 transmission in pdf format which I downloaded from the US ZF web site a while ago. If it would help, email me if you would like a copy. The transmission died, after a big seal leakage, has run out of oil and has worn out the discs. The disks were probably worn out because the oil that
  2. These guys are in Belgium, but do an exchange program: http://www.am-tc.be/porsche.shtml Edit: It is a ZF transmission, so you might find a more local company that could overhaul it. It was also used by Audi and BMW with minor differences. Thank you very much for the info. I know that audi uses the same type of gearbox,but they have many types of 5hp19,and each one has its own parts(part numbers)inside. How will i know which type of 5hp19 of Audi should match to a86-00?Moreover,i don't trust anyone here in greece to make this experiment to my gearbox,if he hasn't done ano
  3. Could anybody help,giving a link to workshops that repair tip. transmission.type 5 HP-19,A 86-00.I would prefer on Europe :help: Thanks
  4. I will have some careful checks and try to solve the problem. What comfuses me about what you said,is that i didn't add any coolant during a month.If i had a leak,it would need some water during this period,i suppose.
  5. The temp.when the lights starts flashing is around 96-99 celsius,from monitoring with scan tool.The system was flushed once when the water tank was replaced about a month ago. But,if we have air in the system(due to bad flush) it should overheat in a month,shouldn't it?
  6. I have already read the whole topic posted on 5 april 2004,but this didn't exactly solve the problem.The car is 996 99'model and we have changed the following parts to solve the problem. 1.coolant tank code (996 106 14756) 2.coolant cap (01) 3.water level sensor The radiator fans work correctly,no leaks ,no overheating. The engine compartment fan seems to work for a few seconds ,either when the engine works,either when it is turned off. The light flashes only when the engine reaches the normal working temp.and you drive the car in traffic. A.Could it be from the engine compartmen
  7. i don't know if porsche has made changes to engine lubrication system or breathe system to this model,but he asked 2-3 guys with older 996 and they didn't have any problems like that
  8. dear loren ,my friend here in greece,owns a 2003 3,6 liters 996. it has 50k and almost from new he says that when it gives her,some doughnuts(hard circles)and then stops it puffs smoke from the opposite site exhaust .which means:right turns-left exhaust smokes.left turns-right exhaust smoke.also it smokes when he drives it hard for 10-15 minutes,turns off for 20 minutes,when he starts the engine again it smokes a lot for a while,then its ok.he changed a lot of different oils,same thing.he tried with 1 lit less oil,same thing.any suggestions??
  10. the car is owned in greece, a small country thousands miles away from most of you.it has 106.000 km. reading and all began when suddenly one day,check engine light came on,the car had a very unstable idle 800-1000,smelled a lot like lean burn,puffed some white smokes at times and had poor acceleration.we drove it to porsche local workshop,and they kept it some days and after the repairs they said that the problem was from something like a hose or gasket on the inlet plenum sucking air.it seemed that the problem had been solved but after a month,the c.e. came back with same codes.the maf sensor
