Hi - this is my first post so I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I tried search (google) but think my search skills stink or really can find an answer so forgive me if this has been asked!! The Car: 97 Boxster with Tiptronic, 89k miles. The IMS, RMS, water pump were replaced when i bought the car. I've owned the car about a year and have no idea when the tranny fluid filter was done.(no tiptronic problems). The Problem: Today I decided to performed the trans. fluid / filter change. I followed the technical article posted on Pelican and didn't have any problems until it came time to run the car through the gears. When it came time to shift (R, 1st, 2nd, etc.) I was expecting the rear axles to turn and they didn't. So, that didn't bother me too much until it went to put the car in park. When i did i got a very audible clicking sound coming from what i assume was the transmission. It eventually stopped (as if the transmission stopped turning) but now i'm worried something is broken. Some notes: The old fluid looked very similar to what you seen in the pelican article (blackish) When i drained the transmission i recovered +/- 5 quarts of fluid when i expected roughly 3.5.I replaced all 5 with Pentosin ATF 1 Not much 'sludge' in the pan or accumulation around the magnets. nothing smelled burnt. Could this be a simple shifter linkage problem? (all the gear indicator lights seem to light up properly when i shift/select manual mode) Does it need MORE ATF ?(I'd like to add more ATF (if it needs it) but am terrified that if i try this procedure again I'll wreck the trans (if it isn't already).) One last question - when the transmission is in park, should i be able to turn the axles? If anyone can help a noob I'd appreciate it. :thumbup: Thanks! joe
Hey guys....I have a clicking coming from the left rear at low speed. I can hear it best when idling to a stop. It does seem speed dependent as it is faster at faster speeds. It seems to go away under acceleration, but I cannot be sure as my exhaust is pretty loud. I jacked the car up and spun the rear wheels, but cannot hear the noise. There is some thumping from the transaxle, but not the same clicking. I checked the heat shield to make sure it was not hitting the rotor. I have taken the wheels off, and spun without the wheels and cannot hear it. I have taken the rear calipers off and removed the rotors to check the emergency brake. There is not a rub or anything obvious that I can see that is hitting or rubbing. I have even removed the center caps and that is not it. I cannot hear it when the weight is off the car. I can hear it when I push the car in neutral. The best way to describe the noise is that is sounds like an old fashioned speedometer cable that is about to break. The car drives fine and everything else seems ok. There is no noticeable noise at highway speeds. Any help or advice would be appreciated!
