Your 2021 718 Spyder’s oil should be changed according to Porsche’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 718 Spyder may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

2021 Porsche 718 Spyder Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche 718 Spyder? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Porsche 718 Spyder 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
