    Drivetrain Noise

    I notice a slight whine from somewhere in the drivetrain on overrun between 1000-2000 rpm.It's loud enough for me to hear it with the radio off. The car is a C2S[tiptronic] 6000 miles.Is this a normal noise or should it be investigated further?I would appreciate any suggestions from long term owners as this is my first 911.

    Re: Drivetrain Noise

    Did you ever get your problem resolved? I think I have the same thing. The initially thought it was the gearbox which they replaced (as part of the recall). But I still have the problem. I took it back in today and asked them to check the drivetrain.

    Re: Drivetrain Noise

    I have a slightly different problem. I am not sure if it is the tip transmission or not. I have been hearing a whining sound when I select the gear lever from D to R or R to D (or from N to D or N to R)? The whine only last for about a second when selecting gear. Do you think the whine could be from the transmission pump or control valve? Do you think the changing of the transmission oil and filter may cure the noise (or make it even worse)?

    Re: Drivetrain Noise

    Maybe unrelated, but the 3.2 Boxster engine has a noise (almost like a 'mooing' around 2krpm, that is attributed to the oil pump (the pressure release valve I think, but opinion varies).

    Re: Drivetrain Noise

    Do you know if there was a recall for the transmission? Actually, the whine sound only occur when the car is stationary and when changing gears (N to D/R or P to D/R), do you think changing the transmission oil will help? The car has only 3000 miles.

    Re: Drivetrain Noise

    superfans, I think the whining noise is a 'normal' sound for Tips when it is switching between R and D and vise versa. But I am too having trouble with a different metal noise which I believe it is from drivetrain. I have spoken to the dealer here repeatively but I am getting NO where. The only answer I am getting is all Tips car have this type of noise only my car is really loud. So far, they have report this problem to PAG but there is no fix (yet, I hope). All I can do at this moment is to turn the stereo louder and make good use of the Bose option that I have.

    Re: Drivetrain Noise

    WR, I know how you feel. The most frustrating thing is that you know something is not right but those OPC dudes keep on telling you that it is normal.

    Re: Drivetrain Noise

    Right, but here is another "there is nothing we can do at this time!" example. there is something wrong with the Tip gearbox. Not serious, but still something not working correctly for all Tip I think.
