Here’s Why 2013 Porsche 911 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Porsche 911 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 911 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. 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 2013 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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like 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 2013 Porsche 911 problems.

Overview of Essential Porsche 911 Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2013 Porsche 911 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 2013 Porsche 911 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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! 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2013 Porsche 911 running newer, longer. See Porsche's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 911 in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2013 Porsche 911.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Porsche 911 can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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 skip recommended Porsche 911 services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Porsche 911’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Porsche 911 radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2013 Porsche 911 maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 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? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2013 911 is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • 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!
  • Can Porsche dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Porsche 911, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
