Questions About 1989 Porsche 928’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Porsche? 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.
