Porsche vehicles offer a sleek and stylish ride for their owners. The transmission is a vital part of your vehicle’s performance which means it is important to properly maintain it by making an appointment at your local qualified mechanic to have your transmission fluid changed regularly. Depending on whether your Porsche is a manual transmission or automatic transmission it is recommended that you should have your transmission fluid changed every 30,000-60,000 miles or 60,000-100,000 miles respectively. At Jesse’s Garage, your top Sarasota auto repair experts, when you bring your Porsche in for transmission maintenance we will assess the color of the fluid and the smell.

And at the same time, one of our certified auto specialists can replace your transmission filter.

These gearboxes use hydraulically actuated wet-clutch packs which keep the transmission and its parts well-lubricated and prevents overheating. The PDK transmission isn’t available on all models of Porsche but can be found in:
