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, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Porsche 911

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche 911? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Porsche 911 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Porsche 911 oil at home? 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche exhaust smoke gray 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
