How many kilometers after changing the gearbox oil?

  • I'm thinking about changing the gearbox oil.


    Manual gearbox mileage 75000 km. Does that make sense or should I wait?


    According to Porsche, the maintenance interval is every 160,000 km. But that seems a lot to me personally...

  • Hi,


    Just do it. ;)

    The oil is 20 years old, that would be reason enough for me.

    There's not that much oil in the manual gearbox either... I mean less than 3l

  • The transmission oil works for a surprisingly long time, but after 20 years you can change it.

  • Filling quantity 2.25 liters.

    Porsche recommends mobil MobiLupe PTX 75W90 API GL4/5


    And


    Shell spirax S5 ate 75W 90

    API GL4/5


    I will use one of these two.


    I will also fill in the exact quantity of 2.25 liters and measure exactly how much really comes out.

    Apparently many people make a mistake and fill up to the top of the filler plug, which is not correct.

  • My owner's manual says

    Manual and differential 2.7L

    :pfeil: does the transmission and front differential (with all-wheel drive) add up to 2.7L, or does the manual transmission itself add up to 2.7L?

    The quantity would then differ from the one mentioned in this article.


    I've already done this myself. Please write how you proceeded once you've done it.

  • does the transmission and front differential (with all-wheel drive) add up to 2.7L, or the manual transmission itself 2.7L?

    Only the manual gearbox, the front gearbox has its own filling quantity. The change is very simple, open the filling opening, open the drain opening and collect the oil in a container. Allow to drip out and close the drain opening again. Then put in the correct oil, close the filler opening and you're done.

    The correct filling quantity in the gearbox is viewed differently, often the oil is filled up to the lower edge of the filling opening, this is also the usual way, otherwise the filling opening would have been installed a few millimeters lower.
