What to Know About 1991 Porsche 911 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Porsche 911, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 911 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 911 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1991 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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 911 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1991 Porsche 911 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Porsche 911 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1991 Porsche 911 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 1991 Porsche 911 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 911 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Porsche 911 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1991 Porsche 911's engine run smoother. See Porsche's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1991 911 in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1991 Porsche 911.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Porsche 911 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Porsche 911 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Porsche 911's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Porsche 911 services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Porsche 911 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Porsche 911 radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1991 Porsche 911 maintenance and repairs.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1991 Porsche 911. Get answers to common Porsche 911 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Porsche 911? You know your Porsche 911 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Porsche 911 to high mileage oil? 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? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Porsche 911 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
