2012 Porsche Cayenne Transmission Service & Repairs

What Does Your Porsche Cayenne Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Cayenne’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Porsche Cayenne transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Porsche Cayenne transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Cayenne isn’t working at all.

2012 Porsche Cayenne Questions & Answers

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Porsche Cayenne? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. 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 Cayenne is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Cayenne transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Porsche Cayenne transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
