How often should I service my 1984 Porsche 928?
When it comes to your Porsche 928, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 928. 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 928 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1984 Porsche 928!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Porsche, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1984 Porsche 928 problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1984 Porsche 928 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 928. 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.
Could your 1984 Porsche 928 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Porsche 928 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 928) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Porsche 928 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1984 Porsche 928's engine run smoother. See Porsche's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1984 928 in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1984 Porsche 928? We can help with that, too!
Maintaining your Porsche 928 steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Porsche 928 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. Components within your Porsche 928's steering system require regular maintenance.
If you fall behind on routine Porsche 928 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 928 cooling, heating, and climate control system.
