1989 Porsche 911 Transmission Q&A

  • 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.
  • How much can my Porsche tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my 911's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1989 911’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Porsche, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
