When to Change 2010 Porsche 911 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Porsche 911’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 changing your 2010 911’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. 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 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, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Porsche 911. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2010 Porsche 911 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche 911? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Porsche 911 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche 911 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
