1993 Porsche 968 Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Porsche tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 968 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 968 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 968's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Porsche 968’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
