How Often to Change 2013 Porsche Boxster Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2013 Porsche Boxster? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.”

Your 2013 Boxster’s oil should be changed according to Porsche’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Porsche-recommended oil change intervals, your Boxster may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Porsche if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Porsche Boxster. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2013 Porsche Boxster?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2013 Porsche Boxster motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Porsche has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2013 Boxster. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Boxster’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Boxster by considering your driving habits, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Porsche Boxster

  • What can low oil do to my Porsche Boxster engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Porsche Boxster engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Porsche Boxster oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche Boxster exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
