Porsche recommends changing your 1995 911’s oil at regular 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1995 Porsche 911 Oil Change Q&A

  • 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 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? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
