Porsche recommends having your 1992 Porsche 968’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 968 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1992 Porsche 968

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche 968? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 968’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Porsche 968 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche 968 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
