How Often to Get 1990 Porsche 928 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1990 Porsche 928? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too.

Porsche recommends having your 1990 Porsche 928’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 928 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1990 Porsche 928 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Porsche 928 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 928’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Porsche oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche 928 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
