A shop overfilled my transmission on a 2005 997 6spd. They used the wrong fill plug. I drove the car from their shop home about 45 miles mostly highway before noticing. I called the shop and they said no worries they will take care of it but I would need to get the car back to them.
I jacked up the car and placed level on jack stands. I pulled the correct fill plug and at least 2 quarts came out. by inspecting the transmission it looks like the fluid was coming out around the passenger side axle.
Does anyone know what could be damaged by driving the car with an overfilled transmission. I am confident the shop will make good but I would feel much better if I understood possible damages to the transmission/seals.
I have Porsche 911 / 997.2 Year 2010, VIN WP0ZZZ99ZAZ71XXXX in UAE, Middle East
I purchased the car 2 years ago and there is no warranty, I believe the cad had rear accident history, however from testing PIWIS !! tested reveal no problem, i have fixed some problem related to rubber engine / motor mounts, transmission mount and regular servicing (oil, spark plugs).
Recently I felt slight vibration when changing 1st to 2nd gear in Normal Automatic Mode (PDK) (not Spot / sport plus) , I feel slight vibration but its gone on other gear 3-7th even in high speed
I thought it was just minor glitch, I check with dealer and they wanted 2-3 weeks waiting, but the car is already having problem. So I decided to take to Automatic Transmission specialist, where I can see they have PIWIS tester and other US as well as German Cars being repaired, for more than 30 cars. I assume the risk and leave the car, the next day I went back and they show me Oil with Water mixed, so they decided to open the whole transmission, the shop does not stop there, they Tear down the automatic transmission and asked me to replace the part (below) I just can not understand that with No PIWIS error, they just want to change everything,
However, I just need to find the UNKOWN PART, Can anyone guide me where to look for this or at least trade the whole transmission ?
The part needed are:
Heat Exchanger PN 9G1 307 017 00 (Not an issue ordered) Control unit Hydraulic PN 9G1 317 015 00 (I insist to re install as this is easy part to replace after) Oil pan Complete : PN 9G1 321 025 00 (Not an issue ordered as this filter and mixed with water) Automatic Clutch and cover plate (UNKNOWN) This is the problem, I appreciate if anyone can guide me where to look for this Anyway, I am now challenging the repairshop to delay the clutch hydraulic control unit, and repair the (Unkown Automatic Clutch and defective cover as I can not find yet the replacement) lets see how it goes
I have recently heard that there is an upgrade tiptronic gearbox oil/fluid available in the market which should give a better response for the Tip box. Does this really work? Have anyone tried before?
I am interested to learn as I have realized that the tip at high revs seems not responding as good when compares to mid to low range revs.

I recently purchased 2 cases of AGIP SINT 2000 10w-40 for an oil change in the lambo. Now having just bought my car i wanted to throw some fresh oil in along with an oil filter to play it safe. What do you all think about using this oil i have i case left over (12 quarts) and i dont just want to have oil sitting around getting old, rather put it to use. Obviously dont want to harm the engine which is why i am asking the question before doing anything.
