Oil Change Q&A for Your 2011 Porsche Panamera

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Porsche Panamera? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Porsche Panamera 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 Panamera oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Porsche exhaust smoke gray 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
