How Often to Change 1983 Porsche 928 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Porsche 928’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Porsche recommends changing your 1983 928’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 928 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Porsche recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Porsche 928. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Porsche 928 Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1983 Porsche 928 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Porsche has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1983 928. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your 928’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 928 by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

1983 Porsche 928 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Porsche 928 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Porsche 928 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 928 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche 928 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
