How Often to Get 1989 Porsche 928 Oil Changes

Need more info about 1989 Porsche 928 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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.”

Your 1989 928’s oil should be changed according to Porsche’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 928 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Porsche 928. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1989 Porsche 928 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Porsche 928 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
