How Often to Change 1993 Porsche 911 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Porsche 911’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Porsche recommends having your 1993 Porsche 911’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 911 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Porsche recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Porsche 911. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1993 Porsche 911 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Porsche has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1993 Porsche 911 vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your 911's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 911 by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 Porsche 911

  • Should I check my Porsche 911 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 911’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Porsche oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche 911 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
