by Tribhuvan Singh Latest Updates through Blogs

The automated transmission system in the Porsche is the most crucial part that requires proper maintenance for automobile longevity. Many Porsche 915 owners are not aware that the replacement of the transmission parts is tricky. The following are the symptoms that need attention to avoid any significant problems in the transmission.


Grinding sensation in the gear


There is no scratching; sliding or moving vibrations are experienced when the car changes speed. When the transmission starts to have issues, these symptoms may seem irrelevant. However, it is best to pay attention when such problems occur to avoid major replacement.


Makes Noises: humming or whining


If you unexpectedly begin to hear a humming, whining, or cluttering noise from your car, then it may have a transmission problem. The issue may seem minor, but with time, it can convert into something big. 


If you detect clunking noise coming out from the transmission, then the transmission might already have an integral component giving away. If that is the case, get it checked from the experienced mechanic and, if required, purchase the transmission parts for your Porsche 915 from an authorized dealer.


Burning Smell


If you smell as something is burning, then this is a serious issue of your automated transmission. This may be due to the overheated fuel of the transmission system that plays a vital role in protecting the complicated and expensive transmission system.


When the lubricating capacity of the transmission fluid decreases, it allows the damaging friction between all the parts, which causes transmission failure.


Check the fuel level repeatedly, if you catch any problem in the transmission parts of your Porsche 915, the repair can be done in no time if taken to the well-known mechanic. 


One must not wait for the transmission failure to get it repaired; it is best to have an excellent service of the automobile once in a month for its long-lasting efficiency.



The Porsche ARP Head Stud Kit


The cylinder head stud is another essential part that was initially used in 911 models, which has seen significant changes over 20 years. The modification occurs in the head stud was due to the issue of leaks in the fuel tank. 


Few failures of head stud:


Exhaustion: This is when the head stud is extended and extracted repeatedly, leading to its ultimate rupture failure.


Oxidation: the hardening of the stud case reduces when the head stud has rust spots developed on it. Eventually, as the stud is stretched, it cracks and breaks down.


Porsche had experienced issues with head stud failure in its racing programs, and has been working with a new form of alloy head stud kits.


For your latest Porsche model, you can buy the head stud kit provided by the ARP manufacturer available on the EBS Racing website, which is dealing with Porsche’s transmission parts for more than 15 years.
