How often should I service my 1989 Porsche 944?
When it comes to your Porsche 944, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your 944 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 944 maintenance. Just follow your 1989 Porsche 944 maintenance schedule!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Porsche themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1989 Porsche 944 problems later.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Porsche 944 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 944’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 Porsche 944. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 944 stranded. Your Porsche 944 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Porsche 944 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1989 944. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1989 Porsche 944? We can help with that, too!
Periodic service to the steering system in your Porsche 944 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Porsche 944 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Porsche 944's steering system require regular maintenance.
