1995 Porsche 968 Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 1995 Porsche 968 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Porsche 968’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Porsche recommends changing your 1995 968’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 968 in the above table. Outside of Porsche-recommended oil change intervals, your 968 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Porsche recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Porsche 968. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Porsche 968?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1995 Porsche 968 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Porsche has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1995 968. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your 968’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other 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 968 by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1995 Porsche 968

  • What can low oil do to my Porsche 968 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Porsche 968 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Porsche 968 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
