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
I have a 97' tip Boxster with a blown front seal and unfortunately, I broke the clutch basket on the axle while trying to remove it from the case (**** YouTube tutorials, didn't think it through). I was planning on replacing the bushing and seal with the oversized one and getting my oil pump machined so that the bushing would fit.... But now I have broken even more parts in my attempts to fix it. SO! I have a parts car that is a 98' manual Boxster. How realistic is a conversion from tip to manual? I would be doing it with the help of a few friends.
Hi all 986 guys. I will post for the first time. I have '98 986K(Tip-s),Can I swap 5-Speed(or 6-Speed) manual transmission? In other words, prepare missions, pedals, manual transmission CPUs, etc. like a typical car model (for ex, BMW). Is it possible to update only the mission, not the upgrade to 3.4L? Has anyone ever seen or heard of such a vehicle? I can find 986K 5speed as much as I want, but I want to stick to my one. Thank you!!
