Looking for an independent mechanic NORTH DALLS/PLANO

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

several months ago I posted about a transmission problem i was having where my 04CS would not shift out of low 4. anyway I replaced the transfer-case servo motor but it didn't fix the problem. So through a few conversations with guys that know more than I, it looks like even after the servo replacement, I need to clear the old config/setup from the old motor. And we couldn't do it with any of the aftermarket scan tools we had available

Does that even make sense or has anyone experienced that?

anyhoo I thought Id find an independent in DFW to look at it and see if they can get the transmission working correctly. If so, i need them to also replace the water pump.

can anyone suggest a reasonable/reputable ind. Porsche mech. in DFW? preferably north dallas/richardson/plano area.

thanks for your help!


here's a link to the previous thread(s)  I've replaced the servo motor and the console switch.  I CAN go forward into lower 4 but it wont "back" out to normal.

I've used Autoscope on Plano Parkway and Coit in the past for my wife's old Audi S4.  They worked hard to keep costs down.

They were knowledgeable and fairly reasonable.




I would avoid 5th Gear in Lewisville.  They couldn't even align my former '05 CS.

Try JPEuro in garland tx, he is professional and works on appointment only. I have 04 cayenne S that I bought recently and I am in middle of fixing things one by one.

There is one mechanic who owns a small shop, he is at intersection of spring creek and independence in Plano. He does a free diagnostics and nice guy to exchange ideas and to figure what needs to be done. He would not charge for diagnostics, so you have nothing to loose to get an experts opinion.
