Your 2018 718 Boxster’s oil should be changed according to Porsche’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Porsche 718 Boxster

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche 718 Boxster? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Porsche 718 Boxster engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Porsche 718 Boxster oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
