How often should I service my 1983 Porsche 928?
Take care of your Porsche 928 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 928. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 928 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1983 Porsche 928!
Porsche knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 928 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1983 Porsche 928 problems later.
Bring your 1983 Porsche 928 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 928's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1983 Porsche 928? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 928 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Porsche 928 battery. 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 928) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Porsche 928 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1983 Porsche 928's engine run smoother. To learn how often Porsche recommends you have the oil changed in your 1983 928, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 1983 Porsche 928? We can help with that, too!
