How Often to Change 2018 Porsche 911 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Porsche 911’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Porsche recommends changing your 2018 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

2018 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 runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your 911’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Porsche 911 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
