What to Know About 1998 Porsche 911 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Porsche 911 and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your 911 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 911, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1998 Porsche 911!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Porsche themselves. 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 911's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1998 Porsche 911 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Porsche 911

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1998 Porsche 911 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 911. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1998 Porsche 911 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 911 stranded. Your Porsche 911 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1998 Porsche 911's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1998 911. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1998 Porsche 911? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Porsche 911 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Porsche 911 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Porsche 911's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Porsche 911 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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. Need a new Porsche 911 radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1998 Porsche 911 maintenance.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Porsche 911? 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 does my Porsche 911 need 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!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Porsche? 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.
