When to Change 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster Engine Oil

Need more info about 2019 Porsche 718 Boxster oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Porsche recommends changing your 2019 718 Boxster’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Porsche-recommended oil change intervals, your 718 Boxster may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Porsche recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Porsche 718 Boxster. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2019 Porsche 718 Boxster Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Porsche 718 Boxster motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Porsche 718 Boxster engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Porsche oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
