    Hello, I have a problem with transmission, after about 20 - 30 km of driving in traffic on display appeared Transmission Failure and very diificult to change gears and after of 2, 3 km car shifted to N and driving over. In service they changed pump and again it happened after a week, today the replaced small part I don't know a name transmitter or something like that and 2 km before home it happened again. It always happens when outside temperature is high about 30 C and when car drove about 25 km. May be some of you had/heard such a case ???? Thanks for help.

    The people who are servicing your car are guessing at the problem. Take it to someone who knows 599s.

    On Friday I was driving Ferrari around workshop and after 36 km it happened again. I parked the car about 2 km from their workshop, I phoned and mechanic arrived with computer. He said he suspects what's causing trouble. After an hour I could start the engine and I left the car in the Ferrari. Today afternoon should be ready.

    You need to have an expert look at your car. If this means paying extra at a dealer it is worth it in the long run. The transmission is quite strong and robust. If your F1 pump went I would suspect it is from lack of use.
