They're often easy to notice. Porsche 911 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

2012 Porsche 911 Questions & Answers

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Porsche 911? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, 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? Caring for your Porsche 911’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
