When to Change 2013 Porsche 911 Engine Oil

Need more info about 2013 Porsche 911 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 2013 911’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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 see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Porsche recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2013 Porsche 911 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Porsche 911 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Porsche 911 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche 911 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
