When to Change 1991 Porsche 944 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1991 Porsche 944? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1991 944’s oil should be changed according to Porsche’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 944 in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 944 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Porsche recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Porsche 944. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Porsche 944 Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1991 Porsche 944 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Porsche has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1991 944. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your 944's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 944 by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1991 Porsche 944 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Porsche 944 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Porsche 944 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Porsche 944 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche 944 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
