Questions About 1988 Porsche 944’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Porsche? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Porsche tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your 944 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 944 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my 944 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Porsche 944’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Porsche's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
