What to Know About 1985 Porsche 928 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Porsche 928 and it'll take care of you. With proactive 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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 928, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 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. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 928's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1985 Porsche 928 problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Porsche 928 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Porsche 928 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Porsche 928. 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. 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Porsche 928 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1985 Porsche 928 running newer, longer. To learn how often Porsche recommends you have the oil changed in your 1985 928, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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 1985 Porsche 928.

Routine upkeep for your Porsche 928 suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Porsche 928 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 928's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Porsche 928 maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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. Is your Porsche 928 radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1985 Porsche 928 maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • When should I have Porsche 928 alignment checked? 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 928? 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 928 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 928, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
