Oil Changes for 2018 Porsche Cayenne

How Often to Change 2018 Porsche Cayenne Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Porsche Cayenne’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 having your 2018 Porsche Cayenne’s motor oil changed 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Porsche if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Porsche Cayenne. 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Porsche Cayenne?

During an oil change, a technician will change your Cayenne's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential 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 Cayenne by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2018 Porsche Cayenne Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Porsche Cayenne engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Porsche Cayenne engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Porsche Cayenne 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 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 old cylinder walls.
