Hello, JFP do you mean that i should have changed the clutch oil instead or both at this visit at OPC ?
Hello, JFP thanks but i figure that the Clutch fluid will be 5 years and approx 40 K miles at the major service next year so it should be well inside the limits set by factory intervall. I wanted gear oil changed because of all the mechanical gears and bearing material from the break in of parts in the gearbox.
Hello, I only wanted the Gearbox oil to be changed this time and i would say it took 1 hour approx totally with them driving in and out from the workshop. I cant say i notice any difference in performance, it is more "a piece of mind" thing i would say. The mechanic said the fluid looked nice and Clean and didnt not smell burnt or anything, i did not Watch all the time but went in the work shop to have a look underneath the car and if i am changing the gear oil again i Think i will do it myself. The PDK Clutch fluid i will change next year when the car is going in for a major service.
My HPFP was changed a couple of years ago but that was the factory Campaign / recall.
My 997.2 S DFI water pump will be changed on Monday after just 20 000 Miles.
I have had the car since new and put all the mileage on it, I noticed a whistling sound when Engine was warm maybe a month ago and have read som other threads regarding this (rennlist) and Porsche listened today and they also Think it is the waterpump. Does not seem very common on this new Engine. It does not leak any fluid so thats good.
Thank you ! Off topic maybe (sorry) but my 3.8S DFI is today diagnosed with a sounding waterpump so i am going to change that. it lasted 20 000 miles approx.
I am also curios if this oil level sender also reads the oil temperature ? (948 606 150 00) Thanks
I Think the Oil level sensor is under neath on this new 3.8 DFI Engine. It is on my Engine at least. Maybe i am wrong.
Yes it looks like it, only need to remove the first plastic underbody panel. The drain and fill plugs did not have crush washers but a small rubber seal instead.
I got my PDK gearbox oil changed a couple of Days ago at my OPC dealer. no Pictures though but looked very straight forward when i looked underneath my car. Mobil PTX 75W/90 Oil (also factory fill)
Thanks JFP, Ok,i was not aware that both of the fluids needed to be controlled to get the correct fluid levels inside the box. It doesent sound to me that is a risk i am willing to take and mess upp things...which will end up costing me $$$.
Thanks JFP, I have a 997 S / PDK and think it to long for first oil change with 12 years / 120 K miles. I have seen that procedure in the 2009 Technik Service information book, Is PIWIS needed for the (PTX) gear oil change also, Shouldn´t that be more or less a drain and refill procedure ? I can have it done att dealer but qurios if it would be possible to change out just the gearoil easily.
Hello, Has anyone changed Gear oil on PDK gearbox ? DIY ?
Hello, I had that problem on my Boxster 2008 (CDr 24) and i tried to remove the fuse and that helped for a while. But a Porsche tech told me to remove the Minus battery cabel and leave it off for ten minutes end then put ut back on the battery... and i have never had the radio problem since Best Regards,
