What Does Your Porsche 718 Boxster Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Porsche 718 Boxster transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Porsche 718 Boxster transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your 718 Boxster at all.

Questions About 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Porsche? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Porsche? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your 718 Boxster towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my 718 Boxster's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Porsche 718 Boxster transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Porsche. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
