Hi folks,

 

So I have a 2011 Cayenne S.  I took it on a road trip in July and did over 6000kms pulling my 19ft travel trailer.  No issues pulling it at all, quite the opposite.  The pig performed like a champ!  Now I'm home and commuting back and forth to work and I start hearing a sporadic whining noise.  Sounds like gear/tranny/transfer case noise.  it comes and goes.  there is no grinding sounds or anything like that just a whining.  I'm wondering if she burned through some fluid during her hauling roadtrip?  Would low fluid levels cause whining?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Roch.

I would be changing the TC fluid, its cheap and simple to carry out. There are others on earlier threads regarding TC problems who say the problems of whinning was resolved with new fluid. I now change mine every 30k km.. However, take care placing the drain and fill plugs not to overtighten because I have followed tightening torques and still managed to overtighten!

      I have Suddenly overnight got a droning sound from my Boxster 986 s 2003. Its not the engine because the sound doesn't change if you put the car in neutral and let idle or rev it theres no change.
      However if you let the car coast along and turn engine off, you still hear the droning wining sound. Its happened so quickly rather than built up slowly I am wondering if it could be the handbrake shoes gone adrift perhaps.
      Any body else had this?

      Hey folks,  I just bought a 2011 Cayenne S to replace my 2006.  Wow what a difference!  Anyways, the TPMS has 2 dead sensors.  What replacements works?  I can't seem to get a straight answer... looking for cost effective option.  What have you actually bought and used that actually works?  Model names, numbers etc... are appreciated
       
      Thanks.

      Car is 996 c2
      I've got grinding/whining noise coming from my car not sure where it comes:
      - The sound intesity follows speed!!
      - every gear
      - clutch on/off
      - gas pedal on/off
      I just changed transmission oil and there is nothing. no extra particles, metal or any silver grease from bearings.
      Any Ideas?

      I bought my 2011 Cayenne S Tiptronic with the trailer hitch pre-installed.
      What else do I need so that I can tow a trailer?
      In these forums I found a suggestion to stay with the Porsche hardware because after-market hitches cannot take full advantage of the towing capacity of this vehicle.
      Contacted the parts department at my dealer and was told there is no Porsche part for this.
      Further, that I could get the wiring connector from the Audi dealer, and the trailer people would set me up with the right ball carrier and ball for my trailer.
      Something does not sound right - I asked the wrong question or received an incorrect answer.
      I do not have a trailer and the idea was to have a set-up just in case a need came up, including helping somebody who might be stuck somewhere.
      Suggestions? Thanks!
