When to Change 1993 Porsche 928 Engine Oil

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 all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1993 928’s oil should be changed according to Porsche’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Porsche-recommended oil change intervals, your 928 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Porsche 928. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 Porsche 928

  • Should I check my Porsche 928 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much 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? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
