Question about 2004 Porsche 911
Hi,well i hate to be the one to tell you, but your first gear synchronizer is going out,and trany will have to be removed,and split open to fix it,and while your in there might as well change all of them, its more common on sports cars,and more common in 1rst gear because that's the one people are always hammering the throttle on.does it do it only when taking off the line hard? or is it doing it when you take off slow also? if its only doing it when you take off hard(fast) but not doing it when you take off slow,you have a little more time before it totally goes out! but if its doing it even when you take off slow,then its getting ready to go for good.if it goes before you get fixed at least it wont leave you stranded because you can take off in second gear to get you home or to shop....sorry to be the one to tell you,most guys on here would not have replied to your post,afraid to get the bad mark % knowing you would not be happy about the answer(reply) but now that you know what it is you can fix it...I had a 72 camaro with a 4-speed muncie aluminum housing trany that did the same thing to me.( all the years of white smoking the tires off the line) good luck..yz-maniac.
