Porsche recommends having your 2014 Porsche Boxster’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Boxster in the above table. Your Boxster may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Porsche recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, 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, 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.

2014 Porsche Boxster Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Porsche Boxster motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Boxster’s 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 oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Boxster 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
