Your Guide to 1990 Porsche 911 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Porsche 911, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 911. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get 911 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1990 Porsche 911!

Porsche knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 911 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1990 Porsche 911 problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Porsche 911

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1990 Porsche 911 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 911’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1990 Porsche 911 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 911 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Porsche 911 battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Porsche 911 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1990 Porsche 911 running newer, longer. See Porsche's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1990 911 in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1990 Porsche 911.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Porsche 911 can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Porsche 911 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Porsche 911's steering system require regular maintenance.

A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Porsche 911’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

  • When should I have Porsche 911 alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Porsche 911? If your Porsche 911 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Porsche dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Porsche 911 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
