What to Know About 1990 Porsche 944 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Porsche 944 to last as long as possible. 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. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 944 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1990 Porsche 944!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Porsche themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 944's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1990 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 1990 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.

Could your 1990 Porsche 944 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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 prevent premature wear on your 1990 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 1990 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1990 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. 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, provide the appropriate Porsche 944 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.
