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.
