1986 Porsche 928 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Porsche 928

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1986 Porsche 928 in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 928’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Porsche for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your 928's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Porsche 928

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Porsche 928 engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 928. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your 928's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 928 can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Where Should I Go for My Porsche 928 Tune-Up?

Follow Porsche's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

1986 Porsche 928 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Porsche 928 spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Porsche’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Porsche 928 mean? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 928 engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
