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 having your 2013 Porsche Cayenne’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Cayenne in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Cayenne may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Porsche Cayenne. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Porsche Cayenne

  • What can low oil do to my Porsche Cayenne engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Porsche Cayenne engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Porsche Cayenne 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche Cayenne spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
