1984 Porsche 944 Maintenance Schedule

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1984 Porsche 944?

Here’s Why 1984 Porsche 944 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Porsche 944, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 944. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 944 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1984 Porsche 944!

Porsche knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 944 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1984 Porsche 944 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Porsche 944 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1984 Porsche 944 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 944's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1984 Porsche 944? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Porsche 944 battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 944 stranded. Your Porsche 944 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1984 Porsche 944 running newer, longer. To learn how often Porsche recommends you have the oil changed in your 1984 944, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1984 Porsche 944.

Maintaining your Porsche 944 steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Porsche 944 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Porsche 944's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Porsche 944 services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Porsche 944 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Porsche 944? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1984 Porsche 944 maintenance and repairs.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Porsche 944? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1984 944 is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Porsche 944 to high mileage oil? If your Porsche 944 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
