Oil Changes for 1987 Porsche 924

How Often to Get 1987 Porsche 924 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1987 Porsche 924? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 having your 1987 Porsche 924’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 924 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 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, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Porsche 924. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Porsche 924 Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Porsche 924. Porsche has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1987 Porsche 924 vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your 924's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 924 by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1987 Porsche 924

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche 924? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Porsche 924 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 oil on my own? 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. 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 exhaust smoke gray 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
