Need more info about 1994 Porsche 928 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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.”

Your 1994 928’s oil should be changed according to Porsche’s recommended oil change 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 knocking sounds 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 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. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1994 Porsche 928 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche 928? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Porsche 928 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 928 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
