2017 Porsche Panamera Oil Change Service

When to Change 2017 Porsche Panamera Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Porsche Panamera? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Porsche recommends changing your 2017 Panamera’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Panamera 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, 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Porsche Panamera. 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 2017 Porsche Panamera

  • What can low oil do to my Porsche Panamera engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Porsche Panamera engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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 Panamera spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
