How to change transmission fluid on a Porsche Cayenne (2003-2010)

Maintenance Interval: 8 year or 80k miles (120k km)

Dealer Cost: ~$1000


Skill Required: Hard

Repair Time: 2.5 hours

Recommendation: Go to independent mechanic and supply your own parts

Changing your automatic transmission fluid (ATF) is important to keep your drivetrain smooth. While Porsche recommends owners change the ATF every 16 years or 160,000 miles, we believe this is too long. Unfortunately, this is not a DIY we would advise unless you have advanced skills because of the precise fluid fill requirements. For an overview of the procedure, check out the procedure from the YouTube channel, Rubber Duc. We recommend you purchase parts for the job and pay a certified Porsche independent mechanic for the labor.
