1985 Porsche 928 Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 1985 Porsche 928 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1985 Porsche 928? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Porsche recommends having your 1985 Porsche 928’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. 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 see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Porsche if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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 1985 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 1985 928. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, 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 drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 928 by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1985 Porsche 928

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche 928? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 928’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche 928 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
