Turbo Stuck in gear

I have a 2003 Turbo non X-50 with 43k miles that sticks in gear at times. Most of the time the car shifts smooth as silk. At times when coming to a stop, the shifter sticks in whatever gear it is in and am unable to shift into neutral at a stop light. Most of the time I am able to shift into neutral with ease at a stop light.

I have noticed this is 1-3rd gear. I haven't come to a stop in 4-6 to see if it sticks in gear then. When I say stick, I mean I have to pull hard on the shifter to get it into neutral and a clunking sound is heard.

I had a tech at an independant shop look at the car and drive it, but couldn't duplicate the problem. He says clutch is fine, no pop out issues.

Anyone have any thoughts before I pay a diagnostic at the porsche dealer? Car went out of warranty 12/06.......unfortunate!

Two things I can think of to look at:

1. The cable adjustment at the shifter end. Any work been done like a short shifter added? If so, they may have gotten the cables out of adjustement.

2. Under the car where the cable actuate the lever arms on the transmission - look for a bent arm.

Thanks Loren. I'll have them look at that on Monday. Do you think it is possibly an internal problem with the fork? What about a leaking slave cylinder...would that cause this?

The strange thing is if I'm stuck in second gear at a light, I can release the clutch slowly to get the car going at the green, push the clutch pedal in again and be able to shift no problem...

If it was the clutch slave cylinder I would think you would have the trouble in all gears.

I haven't stopped with it in 4-6 yet, but will do so this weekend and see if it gets stuck. Since this problem occurs once in awhile, I am hoping the dealer can duplicate the problem and see if Porsche will cover it under warranty since it just expired a month and a half ago...crossing my fingers.....

The independent Porsche tech couldn't duplicate the problem and was unable to see if the slave was leaking. He did a quick once over on the car as a favor.
