2016 Porsche Macan Oil Change Service

When to Change 2016 Porsche Macan Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Porsche Macan’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2016 Macan’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Macan may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Porsche Macan. 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2016 Porsche Macan?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Porsche Macan. Porsche has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2016 Porsche Macan vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Macan'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 drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Macan by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2016 Porsche Macan Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche Macan? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Porsche Macan engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Porsche oil on my own? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche Macan exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
