Porsche recommends having your 2020 Porsche 718 Spyder’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 718 Spyder in the above table. Your 718 Spyder may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Porsche 718 Spyder. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Porsche 718 Spyder Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2020 Porsche 718 Spyder motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2020 Porsche 718 Spyder Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Porsche 718 Spyder motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 718 Spyder’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Porsche oil on my own? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche 718 Spyder exhaust smoke grayish 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.
