1997 Porsche Boxster Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Porsche's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Porsche tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Boxster's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Porsche Boxster transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
