2nd gear grind

Hello, when my car is cold, sometimes 2nd gear will grind when I shift . I generally shift from 1-3 until the engine warms up. The grind doesn't always happen but is very distrubing. I had the transmission fluid replaced and the the shop looked at the alignment of the gear and said it looked good.

Any thoughts on how to resolve this?

Thanks

 

Tiptronic Shifter Issue

So, A tiptronic boxster S with a shifter issue. It is loose and floppy, moving between Drive and Manual shift like a wet noodle. If I hold it in drive, MOST of the time it shifts, but sometimes it is still in manual. Really frustrating having to hold the shifter, move the buttons for shifting and steer all at once. The indicator light moves around like a coin-op toy on the midway between Drive and Manual, current gear, etc.

Is the fix replacing the shifter assembly or is there a bushing or something that breaks. Anyone heard of this or know a solution?

Can the engagement point of the clutch in 2008 Boxster be adjusted independent of pulling the transmission?

Can the engagement point of the clutch in 2008 Boxster be adjusted independent of pulling the transmission?  I just acquired a low-mileage (26,000) Boxster and the clutch engages up high in the pedal travel . . . both clutch and transmission operate normally, just wondering if the clutch friction point can be reached in the middle of the clutch pedal's travel . . .

2009 pdk transmission service filter change

I believe I am in need of a transmission service due to age but not mileage of my car. I was looking up the cost of a filter and found that the pan to my transmission is the filter. First, is that correct? And Do I need to change the filter or pan with the fluid at this time? And if not when do you change the pan?

Boxster S 2nd gear pops out

My Boxster S 6-speed has started to pop out of 2nd gear when decelerating.  If I speed up to 3000-4000 RPM in 2nd, then lift off the accelerator, (as driving from one stop sign to another) the stick shift moves and pops out of gear.  It also pops out if I downshift into 2nd at higher RPM.  Second gear acceleration and all other gears are fine.  It seems to be getting worse.  For the time being, I can drive around this issue by clutching but would like to get it fixed.

IMS Mechanic in DC Area

I am looking for a reputable DC area mechanic or dealer to help address the IMS issue . My 2005 Boxster S runs great with no indication of any problems, but I always have that nagging feeling that there is a ticking time bomb looming. Any advice, recommendations, or direct experience would be appreciated. Thanks.
