Are these Tiptronic Tranny fluids OK?


Recommended Posts

Hi. On a 2000 996 with a Tiptronic, i heard it's model number 5HP19 made by a company called ZF. It's used in many other German cars and I heard the VW fluid is the right one. VW part number G-052-162-A2 which is the same as Esso LT 71141. Is this the right fluid for the Tip tranny in a 996? porsche dealer wont sell me fluid.

Their suggestion for my 2003 was correct. And the price and shipping were very good! Not all companies will ship ATF to you... Pelican did and for FREE!

You are correct about the tranmission manufacturer being ZF. My local Porsche dealer will not sell me that tranny fluid either. You've also come up with exactly what I found regarding the fluid types - that the VW one is supposedly the same as the Esso LT 71141, there is also a BMW one ,and Mercedes one that are supposedly the same thing. They may very well be. I ended up just paying a little more for the kind with the actual Esso LT 71141 label on it (as listed in the TSB) for peace of mind. And that is what I recommend you do - you can order it from Pelican - free shipping with enough quarts.

If you are DIY check out the article in the DIY section. You really want a sprayer/pump to add the fluid. I did it using one of those cheap hand pumps that you just put directly in the bottle of fluid. It worked but was a MAJOR PITA!

Good Luck
