No matter the mileage, your 718 Boxster may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Porsche if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Porsche 718 Boxster. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2017 Porsche 718 Boxster Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Porsche 718 Boxster motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 718 Boxster’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Porsche 718 Boxster oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
