2020 Porsche 718 Cayman Oil Change

How Often to Change 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.”

Porsche recommends changing your 2020 718 Cayman’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Porsche-recommended oil change intervals, your 718 Cayman may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Porsche 718 Cayman. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Porsche 718 Cayman. Porsche has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your 718 Cayman's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 718 Cayman by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2020 Porsche 718 Cayman Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Porsche 718 Cayman engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Porsche 718 Cayman 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
