996TT Tip weirdness

Recommended Posts

Something odd happened this morning on my commute.  Was rounding a corner and laying into the throttle a bit (just havin a little fun to break up the monotony of the drive) when the I lost ALL power.  Throttle was responsive, but it quit pulling.  Glancing down at the gauges, I noted that while the car was still in 'D', no gear light was lit.  I kicked it over to 'M' and still nothing.  I got off the road at the next intersection (coasting) and was looking for a good spot to stop when it suddenly showed a gear again and returned to acting normal.  


No lights lit up.  I've not thrown it on my Durametric yet (just happened this morning on my way in), but needless to say, I'm a bit concerned.


I did a couple quick searches and haven't found a similar story (yet).  


Any ideas / thoughts?

Durametric is your friend, of course ... although, hazarding a guess, you may want to check that the fluid level in your transmission is as it should be.
