Questions About 1996 Porsche 911’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Porsche's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Porsche 911? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. 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? Caring for your Porsche 911’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
