Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1987 Porsche 944

How often should I service my 1987 Porsche 944?

Here’s Why 1987 Porsche 944 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Porsche 944, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 944 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 944, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1987 Porsche 944 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Porsche themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 944 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Porsche 944 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Porsche 944 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Porsche 944 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 1987 Porsche 944? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 944 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Porsche 944 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 944) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Porsche 944 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Porsche 944 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 944. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1987 Porsche 944.

Routine upkeep for your Porsche 944 suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Porsche 944 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Porsche 944's steering system with regular maintenance.

1987 Porsche 944 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1987 Porsche 944. Get answers to common Porsche 944 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Porsche 944 alignment checked? You know your Porsche 944 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Porsche 944 need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Porsche 944 engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Porsche? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Porsche 944 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
