Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2021 718 Boxster’s oil should be changed according to Porsche’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 718 Boxster in the above table. Outside of Porsche-recommended oil change intervals, your 718 Boxster may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2021 Porsche 718 Boxster Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche 718 Boxster? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much 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.
  • 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche 718 Boxster spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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.
