What to Know About 1988 Porsche 924 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Porsche 924, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 924 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 924, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1988 Porsche 924!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Porsche themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 924 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1988 Porsche 924 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Porsche 924 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1988 Porsche 924 and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 924’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1988 Porsche 924 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 924 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Porsche 924 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 924) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Porsche 924 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1988 Porsche 924's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1988 924. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1988 Porsche 924.

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 Porsche 924 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. 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.

1988 Porsche 924 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1988 Porsche 924. Get answers to common Porsche 924 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Porsche 924? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Porsche 924? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Porsche 924 engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Porsche? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Porsche 924, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
