2016 Porsche 911 Oil Change

When to Change 2016 Porsche 911 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Porsche 911? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 having your 2016 Porsche 911’s motor oil changed 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Porsche recommends if you 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.

2016 Porsche 911 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Porsche 911 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess 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 changed professionally can not only reduce 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
