2020 Porsche 718 Boxster Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Porsche 718 Boxster motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
