How often should I service my 1987 Porsche 924?
You want your Porsche 924 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 924 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 924 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1987 Porsche 924 maintenance schedule!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Porsche themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 924's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Porsche 924 problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Porsche 924 and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 924. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 Porsche 924. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Porsche 924 battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 924) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Porsche 924 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1987 Porsche 924's engine run smoother. See Porsche's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 924 in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1987 Porsche 924? We can help with that, too!
Maintaining your Porsche 924 steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Porsche 924 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Porsche 924's steering and suspension system.
If you fall behind on routine Porsche 924 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Porsche 924 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Porsche 924 radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.
