1984 Porsche 911 Oil Change

When to Change 1984 Porsche 911 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1984 Porsche 911? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1984 911’s oil should be changed according to Porsche’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 911 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Porsche 911. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Porsche 911?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1984 Porsche 911 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Porsche has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1984 Porsche 911 vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your 911’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 911 by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

1984 Porsche 911 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche 911? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 911’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Porsche 911 oil at home? 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 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 911 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
