Questions About 1987 Porsche 911’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Porsche's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Porsche? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 911’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my 911's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1987 911’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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.
