How Often to Get 1988 Porsche 928 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Porsche 928’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Porsche recommends having your 1988 Porsche 928’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Porsche-recommended oil change intervals, your 928 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Porsche recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1988 Porsche 928 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Porsche 928 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Porsche 928 engine failure. 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche 928 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
