Questions About 1993 Porsche 911’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Porsche? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Porsche tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 911 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my 911 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Porsche 911 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.
