Frequent transmission inspections can help to prevent a full transmission replacement. Tom Wood Porsche's local, trusted experts would ensure your Porsche performs as beautifully under the hood as it looks on the outside.

Why do I need transmission services?

Over time, even with the normal use of your car, transmission fluid becomes contaminated. Metal particles, dirt, and other debris get caught in the fluid, causing grinding or breakdown of your transmission. Additionally, heat from automatic shifting can shorten the lifespan of your transmission fluid. Porsche also recommends a complete fluid replacement between 90,000 and 120,000 miles. Automatic transmissions may not need a complete fluid exchange as early as 30,000 miles. However, frequent transmission inspections will help avoid paying for a complete transmission replacement down the road.

Certified Transmission Services We Offer:

  • Transmission Inspection - If your vehicle's transmission is showing signs of trouble, from difficulty shifting to odd noises to a slipping transmission, our certified technicians can inspect the transmission to find the root of the problem.
  • Transmission Fluid Exchange - All transmission fluid acts as a lubricant, and automatic transmission fluid also serves as a coolant; when this fluid gets old, it's important to have it changed in order to keep your transmission functioning.

  • Transmission Replacement - While transmissions can sometimes be repaired, it often ends up being less expensive to simply replace a damaged or worn transmission entirely; our expert technicians can replace your transmission here.

Risks Of Ignoring Transmission Service

As the transmission fluid is worn down and depleted in your car, your transmission's lifespan begins to shorten. Signs that you should seek transmission inspections or even a transmission replacement include:

  • Your car won't move when you push down on the gas pedal
  • Your car is slipping in between gears
  • Your car is having trouble when shifting gears
  • A grinding sound comes from your car/engine while it is running

A Closer Look At Transmission Service

It acts as a buffer so that the gears do not grind on each other and cause sparks and breakdowns. For manual cars, transmission oil is used in a similar way on the gears that control your transmission. Over time, the fluid breaks down due to heat, friction, and time. In order to avoid a complete transmission replacement, Porsche recommends that a transmission fluid exchange or tune-up occur every 30,000 - 60,000 miles.

During the service for an automatic, your technician will remove the transmission pan, and drain the transmission of old fluid before refilling it with clean, Porsche-approved fluid. The old filter will be disposed of, and a transmission filter specific to your car will replace it. Techs will inspect gaskets and your engine, performing included tasks and informing you of any issues that may arise. During service for a manual transmission, the transmission will have a complete evacuation of fluid. Porsche technicians experienced in transmission inspections will go through a multi-point inspection to ensure your car is performing optimally.
