Hi,Ive just bought a 996 2002 "02" Turbo Manual, whilst driving home the other day, driving in 6th gear doing around 80mph i decided to plant my foot to the pedal and try and gain some speed, i noticed that the Speedo didnt move much but my revs increased by 3/4k rpm.Its an in fluctuating problem which only occurs once or twice every few days, IS THE CLUTCH ON ITS WAY OUT???Porsche cannot find a problem with it, but again this morning at happened again this time i was driving along at 40mph in 4th i decided to put my foot down and no movement took place but the revs jumped by 4/5k rpm.Any suggestions???

Thanks,

But how come it only happens now and again, not every time i drive it!!!
Porsche have taken the car out on a Test Drive and they came back simply suggesting that it could have been the 400+ mile journey the vehicle had undertaken when driving back from London.

Sounds like one huge excuse they gave you..

You should be able to drive forever with that car never mind 400 miles!

Slipping clutch I reckon.. and the worst time for it is low speeds in high gears like you have been doing.

I have just had the inspection done so I can have one on mine. I woul not have bought the car if it wasnt eligible for a warranty. Personally I think it is "must". It means that you can drive it flat out and sleep well at night knowing that if it goes bang then its not a 10,000 hole in your wallet. Plus the recovery and free loan car.

The general concensus seems to be at 725 the extended warranty gives you peace of mind during ownership and helps re-sale. A definite req on a 996 I'd say.

I recently renewed mine.

The only time I have experienced your problem and it wasn't the clutch causing it, is just after having new rear tyres fitted. So much tyre soap was used that I could spin the wheel INSIDE the tyre!

But yours does sound like a clutch problem from what you say.

It might be the spring/pressure thingy (dunno the technical term!) that holds the clutch together when drive is engaged is not working properly. Might explain the intermittent nature of the prob. Surely a slipping clutch would slip every time significant load was applied in high gear?

Defo take it to a respected specialist for a second opinion. At least take a technician out in the car with you driving so you can replicate the conditions.

I'm not sure all the warrenty policy would cover clutch, as it is a wear and tear item. However, when I bought my C2 a few yrs ago from an indi the clutch started slipping within days of purchase, the dealer chanded the clutch for me without hassle.

I'd put my money on slipping clutch too, putting foot down on high gear is a common test for clutch slipage.

You'd have to look at the small print carefully, as clutch is a wearable item.

could it also be a RMS issue too(oil leaking onto the clutch linings-or am i speaking tosh) or is the turbo not so badly affected as the lesser 996's

From my recollection Rodders, the Turbo and GT3 were not vulnerable to RMS as the engine block was not the same as regular 996 Carreras and C4S. Could be wrong though

Would definately agree on clutch slipping. It will get to a point where there will be no doubt in your mind Wink

I first noticed clutch slipping on mine with the same as you (hard acceleration in 4th). It quickly came into 3rd and 2nd gear too, so that only gentle acceleration could be achieved. Keep an eye out for it getting progressively worse, and happening more frequently and in lower gears. I don't know about the 993, but the 911 requires engine and gearbox removal to get to the clutch, this being the bulk of the repair cost.

There are other clutch tests, like trying to set off from standing in 2nd or 3rd. Someone else will probably be able to tell you better how to do it.

Hope you get it sorted, whatever it is.

Guy

Thanks for all your help, guys

Porsche have come back to me saying that it has a crack in the clutch plate thus causing it to slip cos of the heat!!!

Just found out that it has had a new clutch fitted by Porsche 4,000 miles ago.

Are Porsche clutches often cause for concern fitted 2nd time round? can I get it done on warrenty of new clutch being so new?
