2017 Porsche Cayenne Oil Change Service

When to Change 2017 Porsche Cayenne Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Porsche Cayenne’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Porsche recommends changing your 2017 Cayenne’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Cayenne may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Porsche Cayenne. 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 2017 Porsche Cayenne?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2017 Porsche Cayenne motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Porsche has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2017 Cayenne. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Cayenne's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Porsche Cayenne

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche Cayenne? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Cayenne’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Porsche Cayenne oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 Cayenne spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
