    2003 996 targa
  1. Hi, I have 2002 996 C2 Targa tiptronic (with Mercedes Benz) I have been lurking for a while now and this forum has been invaluable. I had an intermixing problem, I thought the worst. I pulled the engine and transmission suspecting I had a cracked cylinder head. Imagine my joy when I pressure tested the oil cooler and it started to bubble through from the oil way to the water way, I also found a broken water pump impeller in the oil cooler. So the oil cooler was replaced. Well whist I had the motor was out I took the opportunity to replace IMS with the LN one, RMS, AOS, water pump, low temp thermostat, new plugs, oil filer, coolant tank and I treated her to an engine detail, PSE MkII hack & a set coli-overs. I can’t believe after all that I am now stumped when it comes to which AFT to use. I want to use a Porsche ATF, my parts supplier here in Dubai is an Indy garage that also supply genuine Porsche parts. They have supplied AFT part# 00004320490 which is a red ATF but the AFT that drains from my Trans is a yellow colour. I have double checked with them and they said the part number cross checks against the VIN number. 4 months ago I had the Indy change the AFT, filter and pan gasket, they confirmed that the same part number ATF was used then. I think the part number they are using is for a 20litre barrel, they sold me 4 litres which was put in to another container (no lable). All my searching has been inconclusive all I seem to conclude is that I need part# 00004330401 or Fuchs Titan ATF3533. But I cannot tell if that is what I have. Does the ATF loose its red colour? Would this explain why my fuild is yellow and not red. I checked the Fuchs data sheet and it said it was red in colour. Is one part number for one size and the other part number is the same thing but in a different size? Please if someone can help I can get my transmission filled and get the car back on the road, I am dying to drive and test it but I do not what to trash the trans. VIN number can be supplied if needed. Regards, Rob.
