1983 Porsche 928 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • What can I tow in a Porsche? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. 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 928 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 928's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1983 928’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
