996tt ATF options

Recommended Posts

Hi Wondering if anyone has advice on alternative ATF products for a 2003 996tt ATF change, other than the Porsche brand. The OPC here in Australia charge $50 per Litre for ATF and Fuchs Titan 3353 (which Pelican Parts say is an OEM supplier to Porsche), is no longer available.

The 996 Turbo box is a derivative of the Mercedes 722.6 transmission.  SHELL Spirax S4ATF3403 is quoted as a replacement for 3403-M115 by a supplier I use over here (lubricantsupplies.co.uk).  It has MB approval, but no specific Porsche approval that I can find.

Porsche release approved oil lists on a regular basis.  Engine oil lists seem to be released at least once a year, but the last one for Approved transmission fluids for the 996 I have seen is dated 2008, and shows the 3403-M115.  The lists are published as Technical Service Bulletins.  Google that and you will find sites that you can download them from. 


Are you sure you can't get Fuchs Titan 3353 over there?  A quick Google took me to this site:

thanks again Richard that's very helpful.

I did try to google availability and I didn't spot that particular supplier and will call them tomorrow. However when I went directly to Fuchs Australia they advised that they ceased importing the stuff three years ago
