Your Guide to 1986 Porsche 928 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Porsche 928 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 928 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 928 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1986 Porsche 928!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Porsche themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 928 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1986 Porsche 928 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Porsche 928

Bring your 1986 Porsche 928 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 928’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1986 Porsche 928 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Porsche 928 battery. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1986 Porsche 928 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1986 928. 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1986 Porsche 928.

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 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.

If you skip recommended Porsche 928 services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Porsche 928’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Porsche 928 radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too.

1986 Porsche 928 Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1986 Porsche 928. Get answers to common Porsche 928 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Porsche 928? You know your Porsche 928 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Porsche 928 need high mileage oil? 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 Porsche dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Porsche 928 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
