Oil Changes for 2021 Porsche 911

How Often to Change 2021 Porsche 911 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Porsche 911’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Porsche recommends changing your 2021 911’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 911 in the above table. Your 911 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2021 Porsche 911 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche 911? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 911’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche 911 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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 worn cylinder walls.
