1998 Porsche 911 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Porsche's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 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. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
