How Often to Get 2016 Porsche Boxster Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Porsche Boxster’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2016 Boxster’s oil should be changed according to Porsche’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2016 Porsche Boxster Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche Boxster? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Porsche Boxster 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 Boxster oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
